Something Saturdays (1/21/17)

Michael went back to school this week, booooo! He's been gone...a lot. Me no likey.

So, we spent a good chunk of last weekend kind of relaxing. Sunday night we had a game night with my aunt and uncle and some of my cousins, which was def. fun! And my little brother got 2 little chihuahua puppies named Pepper and Pua and I've facetimed with them and they are cuuuuties. Tuesday I cleaned-blech. Wednesday I met with a bride at a florist. Thursday I baked cookies for Michael's cousin, her father-in-law passed away and they're having a memorial service today so the cookies are for the reception afterwards. When she and her hubby came by to get the cookies I showed them around the house. Friday I had my friend Kevin over to see the house and then we went out to dinner. And TODAY I am going to tour a venue for my best friend's wedding (she currently lives in St. Louis) with her sister! FUN!

Espresso Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Espresso Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Way back, for Christmas 2016, (long...long ago... :P) I drew Michael's Uncle Jim for his family's "Kris Kinder" gift exchange. It's essentially secret santa but with homemade gifts. Kayle is not crafty. So whoever Kayle draws always receives foodstuffs. And Uncle Jim is a big coffee guys SO I decided to make the most amazing, complex, and coffee-flavored cookies I could. And I think I succeeded in my goal.
Espresso Chocolate Chunk Cookies
So pretty much I just took a great chocolate chip cookie base recipe and added instant espresso to the dough and THEN, instead of adding chocolate chunks, I chopped up chocolate covered espresso beans. It really brings the coffee factor up to optimal levels, methinks.
Espresso Chocolate Chunk Cookies
The cookies were chewy and fairly firm, yet gooey (when warm), and seriously...if you like cookies...espresso...and chocolate, you're gonna be a fan. Michael tried one to assure me that they were good. And Uncle Jim seemed very pleased with his gift! I'm pretty pleased with this recipe. I think you will be too <3
