Brown Butter Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

November 19, 2014

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip

These cookies are pretty alright. Just kidding! These are the best cookies I have ever stuffed into my mouth, you should stop whatever you are doing and get some butter softening to make them IMMEDIATELY! Seriously, so good. The nutty brown butter with bittersweet chocolate and sea salt is a holy trifecta that can’t be beat.

I used this recipe from Joy the Baker and made the following changes: dark brown sugar instead of light because that is what I had in my pantry, whole wheat flour, added an extra 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and this magic vanilla sea salt* instead of regular old boring salt. You could totally make your own by combining a little fleur de sel with a piece of vanilla bean in a small jar and letting it chill out for a while. Happy cookie baking!

*also delicious sprinkled on top of oatmeal, trust me.

Pear + Gorgonzola Flatbread

gorgonzola flatbread

I dreamed this up when I was in a moment of snack desperation yesterday and it is going to be my new go-to! Would also make a lovely appetizer at a party. Simply toast a piece of flatbread (I used a piece of naan leftover from an indian dinner earlier in the week) and top with thinly sliced pear and crumbled gorgonzola. Pop back into the oven to broil for 30 seconds until the cheese has melted and drizzle with honey. Slice into pieces and serve warm. SO GOOD.

Nine Months

Nine Months

Greta turned 9 months old a few weeks ago, I feel like so much has happened! She now has all four front teeth and is thisclose to crawling. I haven’t been pushing her to crawl as I am kind of terrified of what will come with her newfound mobility. Currently she can army crawl and roll to get where she wants to go and I am already having to keep a constant eye on her.

She is having a lot of fun exploring new foods and reading books. I am having so much fun with her and it brings me so much joy to see her little personality shining through. This year has gone by so quickly and the need to slow down and cherish these last few months of her being a baby is strong. Trying to soak up every moment with my sweet girl.
