Hello March!

Well, thus far, we have made it through two months of 2009, but this next one is really the determining factor. Is it really possible to write a thesis paper and do a 6 week english project plus everything else for school plus orchestra, and still make it out alive? We shall definitely be putting this to the test in the coming weeks. So, to start March off on a happy note, I will leave you with a recipe for cocoa nutella chip cookies. They're delicious and amazing and are guaranteed to brighten even the worst of March days.

Cocoa Nutella Chip Cookies:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
** one and a half teaspoon fulls of cocoa powder ** two large dollops of nutella Directions 1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. 2. Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. 3. In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the vanilla, egg, and egg yolk until light and creamy. Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended (including cocoa powder). Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon. Add nutella. Drop cookie dough 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared cookie sheets. Cookies should be about 3 inches apart. 4. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
