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!

Crinkle Top Chocolate Cookies

{ Prep Time: 15 mins / Chill Time: 2 hours /Baking Time: 10-12 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 3 1/2 dozen }

12 oz semisweet chocolate chips, divided
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
2 egg whites
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup powdered sugar
butter flavored cooking spray

1. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray and set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt 1 cup chocolate chips in 30 second intervals (stir after each interval to avoid burning chocolate). Stir until smooth, then set aside.
2. In a small bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 mins. Add egg whites and vanilla; beat well. Stir in melted chocolate.
3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt; then gradually add to the butter mixture alternately with water. Stir in remaining chocolate chips.
4. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.
5. Once you are ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into 1" balls. Roll in powdered sugar. Place 2" apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10-12 mins or until set. Place on wire racks to cool.
