Super 4x Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recently, I decided to go on a diet, but I was going to let myself have a free day here and there.  This seems to have changed my outlook on what to make for events since I wanted to make things that only I cared about eating, and didn't care as much about my audience.  However, it appears that this recipe was a me-pleaser as well as a crowd-pleaser.

Stacey's Super 4x Chocolate Chip Cookie Ingredients
1 1/4c granulated sugar, organic
1c brown sugar, organic
2.5 sticks of butter
1 oz 99% unsweetened chocolate (I used Scharffen-Berger)
2/3c unsweetened cocoa powder, organic (I used Dagoba)
2 eggs, organic
2 tsp vanilla bean paste

1/4c cornstarch
2 1/2c all purpose unbleached flour, organic
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp salt

2/3-1c white chocolate chips (Guittard)
2/3-1c milk chocolate chips (Guittard)
2/3-1c semi-sweet chocolate chips (Guittard)

Microwave the butter, unsweetened chocolate and cocoa powder in a heat safe bowl at 30 second intervals, stirring in between intervals, until everything is melted.  Then add the sugar, eggs and vanilla bean paste, and blend in a standing mixer until fluffy.

Mix in the dry ingredients - I like using the dough hook attachment so that flour doesn't get everywhere.  Once it's halfway blended, add in the chips and continue mixing.  If you like it less chocolatey, use 2/3c of each type of chip, and if you like it more chocolatey, well, you know what to do. :)

Put the dough in the fridge until stiff and easy to roll into balls.  When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F.  Then bake 2-3tbs sized balls on cookie sheets 1-2 inches apart for about 10 minutes, rotating once at the halfway point.

Leave the cookies for another 10 minutes to cool and then remove them with a spatula.




OMG, so good...

Throwing some shade

Ombre Flowers So I wanted to try that new ombre cake frosting trend.  I used whip cream here on an eggless chocolate cake I made for a potluck at work (for those egg-free individuals on my team).  Everyone was sufficiently impressed.  I was a little disappointed at the messiness of the blue/purple end, and I kinda ran out of cream, but it tasted good. Anyway... Eggless Chocolate Cake 2 c sugar 1 3/4 c flour 3/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder 1.5 tsp baking powder 1.5 tsp baking soda 1/2 c sunflower oil, organic 1 c whole milk, organic 1 c boiling water 1 tsp salt 3 tbs flax seeds Roses 2 c heavy cream 1/4c sour cream 1 tsp vanilla ½ c powdered sugar food coloring (if desired) Pre-heat oven to 350F. Soak flax seeds in milk for an hour or overnight (or use flax meal). Blend (I used a stick blender).  Mix dry ingredients. Mix in wet ingredients, with boiling water being last. Pour into cake pan (9x13).  Bake for 30 min, rotating once.    Let cake

White Chocolate Love Bars

More hearts for my Valentine's Day assortment... Stacey's White Chocolate Love Bars Ingredients : 16 oz Chocolates El Rey White Chocolate Discos 64% Guittard Dark Chocolate couverture 1 oz bar mold I'm using a 16 cavity bar mold that has one ounce bars.  I think I got mine from Tomric.com ( candy bar mold ). First I tempered some dark chocolate for the decorations. I use the seeding method and a microwave to temper my chocolate.  I put my couverture in a pyrex bowl and microwave at 30 second intervals, stirring with my favorite rubber spatula (the 1 piece ones are the best), until it's about 100F, using my trusty  temperature gun .  Then I add my seeding chocolate and stir until it reaches 90F, removing the seed chocolate afterward. The other thing about tempering chocolate is that you can't really make only one or two ounces - you need to do at least 4-5 ounces or it won't come out right.  So, I made these while I was making something else.  But, yo

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

My son (currently 2 years old) loves pancakes.  Protein, not so much.  I tried to get a bit more protein in his carbs. Ingredients  (organic, if possible) 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 2 tablespoons sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 3 eggs 1 cup cottage cheese 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 tbs milk butter, oil or oil spray Mix dry ingredients. Mix wet ingredients and then fold into dry ingredients mixing as little as possible (keeps the pancakes tender). Heat a pan and grease with butter. My son likes small pancakes (so I use about 1-2 teaspoons at a time), but you can make full size pancakes if you wish. It usually takes a minute or two before you can turn them over, or you can look for small bubbles at the edges of the pancakes before flipping. Remove when golden brown. If you want to substitute white flour, you'll have to add more flour (maybe 3-4 extra tablespoons) unless you like thin pancakes. Also, I usually make a big batch o
