Nice homemade version of take-out Chinese
This morning I had a few ladies over for a catalog party. We, of course, had coffee, an egg casserole, Blueberry Breakfast Cake and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
The Blueberry Cake was a first for me. I used frozen mixed berries instead of fresh blueberries. It was good, but the other berries made it a bit more sour tasting and because they were frozen the cake took almost an hour to bake completely. It was moist and good though nonetheless. Will I make it again? I don't know. I'm a sucker for blueberry buckle and I think I'd rather have that instead. You try it and let me know what you think.
A little piece with some coffee
This was not my first time to make the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. After I saw an episode of "Bunheads" where Boo's mom was consoling Michelle with cookies, she exclaimed that they were "the best cookies she had ever had." Boo's mom (can't remember her name) said they were pumpkin chocolate chip. I then went in search for a recipe on Pinterest and found this one. I made them twice in a week and we all ate them like scavengers! They are a soft, almost cake-like cookie, spiced with a little cinnamon. I use softened butter instead of oil and a little less chocolate chips then the recipe calls for (call me crazy, I know!). One recipe will make about 2 dozen, so this time I doubled it! They are so good. Like, make me drool just writing about it, good.
Little morsels of heaven...
I hope you have successes with these recipes like I did and give them a chance. I know we sure enjoyed them!
