Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my very own recipe for chocolate chip cookies.  It is formulated for maximum chewiness, which is highly desirable in a cookie, in my book. You’ll notice some… well… unusual ingredients for a cookie, but I promise it works.

I have had many a chocolate chip cookie that is incredibly tasty the day it was baked, but through a lot of trial and error, fiddling and… whatever else a person might do to get things just right…  I finally developed a recipe for a cookie that maintains its soft, chewy texture for 3-4 days when stored in an airtight container.

Let’s begin, shall we?


Snowflake Scarf

I made a scarf.
It was for my friend Elizabeth.  For Christmas.  So I gave it to her a couple weeks after Christmas.  Because Christmas was like that this year.
Anyway.  It was a snowflake scarf.
First, I started out by making a snowflake template.


Garlic Bread To Die For!

Oh my gosh, this garlic bread.  Seriously.

I’ve always been a big fan of garlic bread.  I used to buy the frozen kind you can take home and bake, until one day I looked at the ingredient list and got completely creeped out by the sheer number of (mostly unidentifiable) ingredients.

This one is simple.  Only 4 or 5 ingredients (depending on whether you like herbs in your garlic bread) and it tastes soooo much better than the stuff you buy in the store.

So here’s what you’ll need: garlic.  bread.  olive oil.  butter.  and rosemary if you want.


Baby Sling

Well, it’s been about a month since I last posted.  I’m not able to blog as much as I had originally hoped, mostly due to The Small One who now runs my life.  I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I also haven’t been able to create much, craft, food or otherwise, especially on those days that my son won’t sleep except if I’m holding him. So what’s a mama to do except make a baby sling!

We have a Baby Bjorn, but he doesn’t like it when he’s sleepy, so I wanted to make one that was adjustable that felt more like he was being held.  I researched ring slings, and they seemed doable.
