One of my most favorite blogs is Brown Eyed Baker .  She post the most mouth watering recipes and I’ve been dying to try a few.  In fact, last Thursday I made her Jalapeno Popper Dip to take to Bunco.  One girl told me it was the best thing she had ever tasted and asked if I put crack in it!  ha ha.  It is definitely not healthy but it is great for potlucks or monthly Bunco games!

Last night I was browsing Brown Eyed Bakers top 10 list and really wanted to try her chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I’m always looking for an excuse to make cookies!  ;)  So tonight after dinner I got out my baking supplies only to realize we were out of chocolate chips.  I ran down to the Dollar General and got 2 packs just so I had enough.  You can never have too many chocolate chips right?  Then I looked at my recipe and realized I needed Baking Soda, not Baking Powder.  UGH!  I was having a blonde moment.  I tried calling my neighbor/friend Christa to bum some off of her but she wasn’t answering her phone.  I went next door to another neighbor and they weren’t home.  I was starting to think this was a sign that I did not need these cookies!  I broke down and drove 2 minutes down the road to the little old grocery store and got me 2 boxes of Baking Soda!  Whew, all that work for cookies.  I’m so glad I followed through with this recipe b/c oh.my.goodness they are soooo good!  She says something about making a big ball, break in half, blah blah blah but I just made big balls of cookie dough.  At first it looked like they weren’t cooking right but they are just lighter in color.  I think mine did take 20 minutes to bake even though she said 15-18 minutes.  I can’t say enough just how yummy these cookies are!  Enjoy the recipe!
