Lunch Lady Bars
Do you attend cookie exchanges this time of year? I’ve only ever attended a couple of them in my life, but every year, I tell myself that I’m either going to attend one or host one. Of course, this usually doesn’t happen. But I’m so excited because this year, I actually am attending one, and I couldn’t be more excited. My mind has been filled with cookie ideas, and I’ve been scouring cookbooks, trying to decide what I want to take. There are about a million cookies I’d like to try, but guess what? This is yet another Pinterest find. Be forewarned, though – these babies are addictive. Named after cookie bars served in a high school cafeteria, these chocolate chip bars are soft, moist, and addictive! Ingredients 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 3/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup vegetable oil 1 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup granulated sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or a mix of both Instructions Preheat the oven to 350F.

Three Safe-to-Eat Cookie Doughs: Chocolate Chip, Sugar, and Cake Batter! ... - StumbleUpon I’m siiiiick. If you follow Willow Bird Baking on Facebook or Twitter (you do, right?), you’ve probably heard me whining about it lately (okay, maybe this isn’t the best way to encourage you to follow). It started with a sore throat and has turned into a beastly, phlegmatic ogre of a cold that has taken up residence in my chest and commenced hanging draperies and such.

[link] Chocolate Cupcakes with Flaming Strawberries - StumbleUpon Call me easily amused, but these little torch-topped cupcakes delight me. Besides being a cute novelty item for a party, I think they would add a little drama to the end of a romantic meal. I've been looking for something different to serve for Valentine's dessert, and this is definitely different. The strawberries are hollowed out and filled with a bit of liquor, then ignited with a match. For the cake portion, I chose a One Bowl Chocolate Cupcake recipe because 1. it's quick 2. it is easy, and 3. it fits my prerequisite for a light ending on date night. I should say, a light ending provided you don't eat too many.
