Can we have a little fashion talk?
I really don’t understand some of the latest trends.
High-waisted shorts just seriously do not work on me. I think you maybe have to have like super skinny, 6-feet long, Taylor Swift legs to pull those babies off.
And the mullet dresses? I don’t know…I haven’t even tried one on, but I think I would feel like I was missing part of my dress.
And what is going on with those heels that don’t have heels. They’re like Lady Gaga-style shoes, where it’s basically a platform and then no heel. Here’s a link because my description sucks. I really don’t even understand how it’s possible to walk in those.
I think one of the few trends I have been digging is the maxi dress. That’s one I can get behind. Modest, cute, and comfy! They really seem like more of a classic style that I can see sticking around for a while.
Just like good ‘ol chocolate chippy chunk cookies, loaded with chocolate and full of childhood memories with mom’s fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. That’s what the babies bring you, fresh out of the oven, they are absolute heaven.
Chocolate Chippy Chunk Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
pinch of salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1/2 cup chocolate chunks (I chopped up a chocolate bar)
- Preheat oven to 350˚F
- Cream together butter and sugars. Mix in vanilla extract and eggs. Sift flours, salt, and baking soda. Add to creamed ingredients. Mix until fully incorporated, and add in chocolate chips and chunks.
- Drop dough by the Tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until golden on edges. Let cool for 2 minutes on cookie sheet, then transfer to wire rack. Enjoy!
