It’s so overwhelming….everything that’s going on and it’s sometimes SO negative.
It might not be happening in your back yard; but for me , the thought that my many friend & family are being affected…well, the feeling of helplessness is pretty hard sometimes.
So… I stress bake. One of my favourite movies is “Julie & Julia” …and there is a scene
where Julie is baking chocolate cream pie, and says to her husband:
“You know what I love about cooking? I love that after a day when nothing is sure and when I say nothing, I mean nothing. You can come home and absolutely know that if you add egg yolks to chocolate and sugar and milk, it will get thick. That’s such a comfort.“
And I know that if I cream butter and sugar, add eggs, flour and chocolate chips, that I can share these cookies and make someones day better and say “yum.”
My go-to comfort baking ??
Chocolate Chip Cookies.
What could be better’n that??
oh…..I don’t know….
TEN MINUTE CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!!!
But wait, there’s more?
TEN MINUTE SALTED CARAMEL CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES!
STUFFED WITH ROLOS!
So… I love me my chocolate chip cookies. And I love caramel. And salt.
Combining them all = superterficiciouswonderfulyummmmm.
