Hi yall, it’s still fall and it seems the warm weather we have been experiencing is slowly changing, as the weather is much cooler, enough for the heat to be turned on, finally able to put on a pair of boots. Overall for me it’s going to be a busy week, the hubby is leaving town for almost three weeks, which means he is leaving me alone with Ava (OMG). I love her so much, but me and her bump heads like crazy. Ava is like 2 going on 30, she is stubborn, able to have a full conversation, ask questions, and just has a wide array of words that I don’t even know where she picked them up from haha. She is also starting day care next week, which means I have to get all of her things together, orientation, ect ect. I am slightly frightened because she has never been anywhere where she will be taken care of by a stranger. We did have a nanny for a year, but I was more comfortable because it was in my home, and hubby was working in the home. She became like a member of our family, though she works else where we still keep in touch. Being a mom is so tough, but isn’t the thought of having to leave your child with a stranger scary, or is it just me? Now it has become my reality. I pray that everything goes well with that. Now let’s get to the cookie recipe below.
With the fall season a lot of food bloggers are centering their post around all things pumpkin, apples, squash etc, Ive also posted some recipes myself. Outside of spring being my favorite, I was born the first day of spring Haha. Fall is my second favorite season, not too cold or hot, it;s just right. Today I had a craving for chocolate chip cookies, and as always I love adding toffee to my chocolate chips cookies, love the crunchiness of it, and also it gives it added flavor, so I decided to add pretzels, because who doesn’t love pretzels right? Now usually I like to add milk chocolate, but i decided to go the bittersweet route, so you have the sweet flavorful toffee, bittersweet chocolate and salty pretzels. I think it’s a pretty combo so you should definitely try this recipe, because what else is there to do Haha. The cookies that I’m obsessed with are Sarah Keiffer’s of The Vanilla Bean Blog. The way she gets those wrinkles in her cookies, they are so perfect, I tried to get those wrinkles with this recipe, but its a different recipe it didn’t really work out, I was however able to achieve more brown edges. I will be trying out her recipe so for now I’ll go with mine, lol. I am on a quest to create my perfect cookie. Give this recipe a try and let me know what you think.
