My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chippers

As most of you already know, I'm a HUGE fan of chocolate chip cookies. Thanks to my friend Julie for introducing these to me! There is an urban legend behind this recipe that can be found here. True or not, I'm glad this recipe made it into my hands. This recipe makes a TON of cookie dough (the recipe below has been halved). Dough can be frozen as well. Happy baking!
{ Prep Time: 20 mins / Cooking Time: 10 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 5 dozen }

1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed 
2 large eggs (room temp)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2.5 cups rolled oats (measure out oats, then blend to a fine powder in a food processor or blender)
2 cups (16 oz) chocolate chips
4 oz milk chocolate, grated
1 1/2 chopped nuts (your choice; optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 
2. Cream together butter and sugars. Add eggs (one at a time) and vanilla; mix to combine. 
3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix well.
4. Add chocolate chips, grated chocolate (and nuts, if desired).
5. Roll into balls and place 2" apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
6. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Once baking is complete, remove pan from oven, let cookies cool for 2 mins; then transfer to a wire rack for cooling.
