Nothing else would do. All I wanted was a warm, gooey, chocolate chip cookie, straight out of an iron skillet. With just a little ice cream. I flipped through a cookbook or two, and discovered you could make chocolate chip cookies with melted butter. One recipe (from The Weekend Baker by Abigail Dodge) even had you mix the entire dough in the saucepan where you melted the butter, and then scoop out the cookies from there. As this was a lazy Saturday, and my intent was only to satisfy my craving (not a den of Cub Scouts’ or a mob of preschoolers’), I exercised no financial caution and dumped an entire cup of chopped Valrhona chocolate into the mix.
To make this, since it is such a simple recipe, use the very best ingredients you can. And then run a 5k. Now I know that most of you don’t have an enormous bar of Valrhona chocolate lying around. I know. To order the same Lodge Logic Skillet that I used, you can find it right here on amazon. Feed your eyes - StumbleUpon. Mingmakescupcakes.yolasite.com from yolasite.com - StumbleUpon. Cinnamon Sugar Pull-Apart Bread — Joy the Baker - StumbleUpon. I’m sorry.
I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face. It’s not fair. I know it’s not fair. I know that now you’re craving cinnamon rolls, and cream cheese frosting and chili fries and hot dogs. I am too… and I already ate half of this warm bread. You don’t deserve this sort of torture. This bread hits all the comfort spots in my soul. I’m sorry and you’re welcome and I love you. Let’s start at the beginning. I did this all without the use of a stand mixer and dough hook. This dough can be made and left to rise , then refrigerated overnight for use in the morning. This is the dough just before it’s left to rise.
After the dough has rested and risen for an hour, I knead it in a few tablespoons of flour. This is the part in the bread process where you can wrap the dough and place it in the fridge to rest overnight. Carrot Cake Recipe from Betty Crocker. Yellow Cupcakes.

So…it’s still really hot out…wtf! I’m totally ready for fall…forget this, “I just don’t want summer to end” BS…I’m OVER IT! Okay, I apologize for being aggressive right there, but man does this weather make me grumpy. There are a few things that get my mood up during weather like this: 1) My Dog (always) 2) Frequent Fro-Yo and Hawaiian Ice trips with the boyfriend 3) This Roasted Onion Dip. Remember when you were a kid and sleepovers were still the best thing ever? If you are willing to brave a hot kitchen for about an hour (woof, I know), this dip is totally worth it and a delicious treat to help keep you cool (once you’re sitting and enjoying it) and leave you feeling guilt-less afterwards!
Chipotle Shredded Pork Enchiladas. Now that I live in Southern California, I’ve been diving into the world of Mexican food.
I’ve shared with you before that I’ve never been a fan, until recently. Ben is partially responsible for my conversion, but I think the other reason is because I’ve finally been exposed to good Mexican food. Through-out my childhood and up until I got married, I always related Mexican food to places like Taco Bell. Icings Recipes at Bake Decorate Celebrate! - StumbleUpon.
