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

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

Vanilla Marshmallows

Marshmallows have a special place in my heart because my boyfriend and I made these together on our third date.  He's a chemist and I remember commenting on how precise he was with measuring everything.  Nothing sexier than a guy who can cook... and who wants to help make candy. :) Unfortunately, he's on a business trip this week, so I made a half batch by myself from my favorite book, Chocolates & Confections .   And in doing a search I see they have an At Home version !!! Wow.  If only they had this when I started trying to make candy in 2008.  Oh well, the harder path only makes you stronger... right? Anywho... Stacey's Half Batch Vanilla Marshmallow Ingredients : 0.8 oz gelatin (powdered) 4 oz water (for hydration) 12 oz sugar, organic 6 oz glucose syrup 2 oz local honey 2 oz invert sugar 3 oz water 2 tsp vanilla bean paste Parchment paper 9"x9" cake pan Canola oil, organic 1:1 ratio powdered sugar to cornstarch I've found tha
