Oh so simple to make, yet my favorite treat of all time. We have a restaurant here called Oregano’s where Tyson and I both celebrate our birthday’s each year. My reason? Not only is the ambiance perfect with people watching, outdoor patio seating that resembles a Chicago park, superior service and Frank Sinatra music, they claim my favorite dessert – a just-baked, still hot in the skillet, gooey, melt-in-your-mouth, spoon-required chocolate chip cookie with dollops of vanilla ice cream on top. Absolute perfection. Actually, I should dedicate this post to Oregano’s instead…maybe next time.
My typically dormant sweet tooth has come out with a vengeance during this pregnancy and I just can’t seem to get enough of anything sweet (thankfully, this also includes fruits, so I try to indulge in those more than chocolate). So, today I decided to make some chocolate chip cookies while I still have the time and energy to bake. I love the simple Nestle Tollhouse recipe because the cookies manage to stay soft after a few days, and it’s important that they remain soft because neither one of us are fans of a crunchy cookie. Here’s to a little indulgence from time to time.
