Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I have been a HUGE fan of Dad’s chocolate chip and oatmeal cookies for as long as I can remember. Recently I found them in the chewy kind and I just fell deeper in love. With a cold glass of milk, you can easily eat a half a box. Or at least I can. Then one day my… “I wanna bake something with chocolate from scratch” feeling kicked in and my husband suggested I take a shot at baking these yummy creations. After two bakes, we have mastered the very best chocolate chip and oatmeal cookie recipe. I know I’ve said this before in my previous recipes. I mind as well make a motto of it. Taste it, tweak it & make it yours. Everyone likes a different amount of salt or chocolate or whatever it may be in their food. So choose accordingly. Take risks, baking should be fun!…

Easy Garlic Chicken

If you haven’t noticed from my previous recipe posts, I love easy recipes. I work all day and come home and need something healthy, fast & flavorful. This recipe goes amazing with potatoes, steamed veggies or rice. The outcome of this recipe is a sweet, spicy (depending on whether you add spices), garlic glazed chicken. I recommend using aluminum foil on top of your roasting/baking pan for an easier clean up. Ingredients 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 4 garlic cloves, minced 4 tablespoons brown sugar 1 tablespoon olive oil Add spices and herbs as desired. (I used a spice rub from William Sonoma and spices by Club House) Directions Preheat oven to 450F and line a baking/roasting pan with aluminum foil, lightly coat or brush oil on foil. In a small sauté pan, sauté garlic with olive oil until tender. Remove from heat and stir in brown sugar. Add additional…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

My obsession for chocolate chip banana bread believe it or not was purchasing a loaf from the Forest Hill Shoppers Drug Mart. It was the perfect balance of sweet, yet salty and moist. My advice for this recipe is tweak it where you need to in order to get to perfection. Your perfection could differ from mine by a 1/2 teaspoon of more salt or less. On that note, take risks and enjoy! :”) Prep Time: 2hrs Ingredients 1 cup of granulated sugar (or regular sugar) 8 tablespoons unsalted butter (or salted based on your preference. I used salted once.) 2 large eggs 3 ripe bananas (1 cup of mashed bananas) 1 tablespoon milk 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/3 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional) Semi-sweet chocolate chips (as many as desired or…
