january, you are almost gone.

okay, i had this maybe fun idea. at least it will keep me posting on here AND continue to keep me trying out new recipes.

every thursday, i'm going to post a new recipe that i've tried the past week that was yummy and good. if none of it was...then we'll cross that when it comes.

this afternoon daniel and i made scrumptious chocolate chip bars, which, probably doesn't sound like 'woohoo!' but this recipe is soooo good! i tweaked it a little bit.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars


You will need:

2 1/2 cups of flour
1 tsp. of baking soda
1 tsp. of salt
2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup of sugar (i'm probably the only one, but i tend to skimp on the sugar a tiiiny bit. its a weird things...)
3/4 cup of brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips

no. 1
Preheat your oven to 350
no. 2
Combine your flour, baking soda & salt (in a smaller bowl. i always make the mistake of putting this in my bigger bowl. just a minute. you'll see why) and set aside,
no. 3
Cream butter, sugars, egg and vanilla. NOW you will gradually add in your dry ingredients into this bowl (the bigger one :P) and stir in chocolate chips.

The recipe says to spread this into a 10x15 pan, but i prefer to put between 1/2 and 2/3 of the mix into an 9x9 pan and roll the rest up in wax paper and freeze it for later. There is NO way we should eat all of that cookie goodness here...

Oh, and bake it for 20 minutes.

We like putting little almond slivers on top. Just for fun.
