Hey friends! I can’t believe our summer break is flying by so quickly. My kids have one more month and then it’s back to school. #sigh I’ve really enjoyed hanging out with them and taking a break from blogging.  It’s been so good being on a much slower pace which includes no homework, no lunch packing, and no waking up early to catch the bus. However, we are still managing to fill our time with a lot of swimming and hanging out with friends. Plus, they’re constantly hungry so I seem to be in the kitchen a lot.

Today, I’m sharing a delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe. I know there are so many great recipes out there but this one is special because it comes from my next door neighbor, Adrienne.  “Ade” loves to bake these for her friends for different occasions and they are her go-to cookie recipe. I’ve baked them twice now but hers still taste better than mine so it looks like I need a bit more practice. Ade has become one of my closest friends and I love that whenever she comes to see me, she just walks right in through the back door. You know you have a true friend when she shares her hydrangea bushes with you.

The first time I bit into this cookie, I was sold! I said gimme dat recipe quick! I made these for the first time about 2 months ago but I never had the chance to share it. I blame it on Summer break! Our good friend, Craig Obrist snapped some pictures of Emmy and me baking on the same day he shot pictures of the newly designed guest room from my One Room Challenge.  He is an amazing photographer. I’m so happy I have these pictures with Emmy because it shows us both in our element.

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, combine your dry ingredients including flour, baking soda, salt and set aside. In your mixer or large bowl, combine the butter, sugars, vanilla extract and beat until creamy. Beat in the 2 eggs and gradually add in the flour. Stir in chocolate chips. Roll into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. I made larger ones and flattened them out with my hands. Bake for about 10-12 minutes.

If you’re an avid baker, I recommend keeping your ingredients in clear jars like these. I bought these from Walmart a while back and I love them. They make it easy to scoop out the ingredients.

I didn’t have a chance to blog about Emmy’s birthday but she recently turned 3! She is the sassiest, funniest, and most opinionated 3 year old ever! I call her Lil Yumes after my younger sister. Ha! But she has a huge heart and loves to bake, create, and most importantly EAT!

Whenever she hears me baking, she immediately comes over and asks to help mix the batter. Plus, she wants to be the first taste taster. This is the face of someone who knows she’s getting some chocolate chip cookies very very soon.

It wasn’t long till my nephew, Finn, heard what was going on in the kitchen while he was in the play room.

I’d say it was a success!! Thank you, Craig for these wonderful photos!

The next set of photos were taken by me today when coincidentally, two of the Obrist kids came over. These make the house smell so good! They’re a bit crumbly, soft and crispy.
