Not-So-Weekly Recipe

The best cookie ever. Hands down.
Reese's Chewy Chocolate Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Hershey's Cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda (I used baking powder, and I don't think it made a difference)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups softened butter or margarine
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
10 oz. package Reese's Peanut Butter Chips

1. Heat oven to 350*
2. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until combined. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt - beating well. Stir in peanut butter chips.
3. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes. Don't over bake! Cool slightly on pan, then move to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes close to 5 dozen cookies.

I usually half the recipe, so there's not that many sitting around teasing me with their deliciousness. And ohmygoodness how heavenly would they be if you used tons of chocolate chips instead of the peanut butter ones? Insane. But seriously, you must try these. (The recipe is on the back of the Reese's chips bag.)

So there's this horrible Office Depot commerical on tv now...the one with the Thing-like hand popping up out of a box that people carry around with them. It's uber creepy. But it did give Joe and me a fun conversation:

Joe: What exactly does the Office Depot hand do?

Me: It's the hand that pushes the Staples' easy button.

"Wurf it"

I call to check in with my family...they were all in different stages of sickness when I left for home.
I get Kait on the line, and she's sniffling. She tells me she got what I had - a nasty head cold.

Me: I'm so sorry I got you sick!

Kaity: It's ok. It was worth it.

Aww. I tear up a little. I have the bestest sister in the world.
