Hello everyone!!! I apologize for leaving everyone hanging for 17 months… As I mentioned in my initial post, I’m a flight student and that training has been occupying all of my time for the past year. If you’re excited to finally read a new post you can thank my friend Brittany for demanding that I update my blog. I had actually been planning to bake something for my Granddad as a thank  you gift for my birthday check this year. He loves chocolate as much as I do, and I was craving chocolate today anyways so I went with the most chocolate packed cookies I could find.  I found this recipe on Martha Stewart’s website.  For some reason mine don’t look nearly as pretty as her cookie picture.  I imagine that has something to do with the fact that I’m a amateur baker with a point and shoot camera. Maybe someday I’ll have a professional kitchen, photography team and cookbooks of my own. Not that I’m necessarily aspiring to be like Martha Stewart, but sometimes crazy things happen…

Unfortunately I don’t have any crazy stories about the baking process for these.  I had to run out and buy some chocolate (I know its unbelievable that I didn’t have chocolate on hand) at the local Walmart.  For those of you who don’t know, I now live in Kingsville, TX. A painfully small farm town where Walmart is pretty much the most exciting place. I normally have some colorful tales about the other patrons but the only notable event on this particular trip was a lady being lifted into an ambulance out front.  I’m not sure what happened but she was conscious and looked okay. Back to the baking, I have a new cookie sheet and a cookie dough scoop that scrapes out the dough for you. If you’re having any trouble with burning your cookies try the Airbake insulated aluminum cookie sheets!  They sell them at Bed Bath and Beyond but I’m sure there are other stores or online options. The sheets are designed with a open space inside that keeps the cookies from directly touching the metal that is directly touching the baking rack… Its pretty awesome, check them out!  I’ll try to continue uploading my cooking adventures, maybe just at a slower pace than last year.  Keep checking back, and thanks for all the comments 🙂
