A couple of days ago I was making my new favorite chocolate chip cookie. This is the 3rd time making and and everything we had great success with this SUPER yummy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (Thank you Grace for sharing the recipe!). However, something very strange happen this time.
Dough as made as usual - looks good - refrigerated and ready to go.
Consistency was good. Formed into little golf balls and ready to bake. Smelled delicious as usual in the oven.
BUT obviously I've done something terribly wrong. The result: very flat cookies that browned super quickly in the oven.
So why is this the HAPPY cookie mistake? Because the cookies were DELICIOUS! They were a chewy but crispy around edges. And they were very buttery.
Glad I found another way to bake chocolate chip cookies but I was mystified why the cookies turned out like they did since my previous attempt turned out superb cookies of a different texture. So I reread the recipe again...lame me I forgot to put in PLAIN FLOUR (ie: All Purpose). As good as the mistake cookies were, I prefer the original recipe :). Will be making a new batch after the move.
Sorry for such a random post. Usually I don't post about techy stuff about the blog but I wanted to check out this [new to me] Bloglovin tool. And to do so I have to put this little link in a new post. Not sure how many you out there use this or plan on using it. So far it seems pretty friendly to use.
So why bloglovin? If you have been living under rock like I have [hehe], I JUST read that Google Reader is going away. When and why I have no idea - my head has been in the clouds trying to plan a house/studio move (1.5 MORE WEEKS!!! EEK!)
SUPER cute projects last week. I am very impressed by the imaginations and workmanship of the projects popping up. There were A LOT of favorites ... but here are some highlights. Scroll down to hop onto this week's linky party.
Double smiles for a double quilt finish! I am very happy to share my 2 latest quilts. They are inspired by the It's a Big Thing collection from Moda. This project was started months ago and it is now ready for showing :)!
This quilt is all about BOY stuff. Trucks, cars, stars and the different hues of blues throughout this quilt screams BOY. I first fell in love with the trucks/cars fabric and really wanted to do a simple quilt around that fabric.
After the main fabric is picked it was easy to pulled coordinating fabrics together to create this great combo.
I used a simple along the seam-straight line quilting technique for this patchwork quilt. Keeping the lines simple and clean.
For the binding, I used a coordinating stripe fabric.
Goes well with the second quilt as well (same quilt top and binding, just a different backing print)
My 2 boys are 6 and 4 now and have big boy quilts of their own, so I will not be keeping these two quilts around the house so they are available at my little Etsy shop HERE and HERE.
