A little while ago my friend Terri, Love and Confections, gave birth to a beautiful little girl named Grace! So, while she’s taking care of newborn baby Grace she had a few of her blogging friends “guest post” on her blog! When she asked me if I’d like to be a guest, I of course said yes!
I chose this recipe for Monster Chocolate Chunk M&M Cookies to share on her blog because my niece Savannah Grace helped me make this recipe back before Christmas…. Baby Grace… Savannah Grace… it was just meant to be 😉
My niece Savannah got to spend some time with us right before Christmas and the very first thing she wanted to do when she got to our house was “make something”. This phrase means she wants her apron, she’s ready for the mixer and we’re probably going to end up with some awesome sweets by the end of the night.
I kind of followed this recipe that’s on my blog for Brown Butter Chocolate Melt Sandwich Cookies, but we didn’t brown the butter, I used a little more brown sugar and I let Savannah pick the “add ins”. For these cookies she choose to add M&Ms and chopped up chocolate bars; she also decided that regular sized cookies just were not going to cut it so I told her to have at it and these monster cookies are what we got!
Perfectly easy to make, huge, soft and chewy cookies!
Jump on over to Terri’s blog to get the recipe. I’m sure you’ll love them as much as we do.
But before you go….
….while I’ve got you here, let’s talk for a minute. I’ve been struggling a bit on this blog thing. Sure I can cook and bake, I can get on here and tell you how great these cookies are or how easy that pasta dish was but I feel like something missing. Something that could really connect us. You know how you read some blogs and you really feel like you’re sitting down with that blogger in their living room (or kitchen) and having a real conversation with them? I just don’t know if my blog is doing that. I want it too. I need it to. But I’m stuck.
There are so many amazing blogs out that and tons of different writing styles out there and I guess I’m just trying to find my voice.
What are you looking for on this blog? Why are you here? Anything I can do to make it better? I want to know from you. I don’t want this to be one sided. I want to hear from you! I want to know from you because you are the reader and without you… well without you there is no one to read the blog……
Oh and Ps. My blog’s 5th birthday is on Saturday 🙂 I’ll have a fun recipe for you and some special giveaways so make sure to stick around!!
