Sometimes I like this Robert Frost guy. I've heard this quote a million times, but I really needed to hear it today.

Quote of the Week

"That's the kind of trouble you get when diverse groups of people actually cross paths with one another. That's why many of the worst things in the world happen in and around Starbucks bathrooms."
Tina Fey Bosslady

I am obsessed with Tina Fey's new book. I can't stop laughing through it, and this part especially made me crack up because I immediately thought about the bathroom at the Starbucks on West 6th and Waverly Place, and the large variety of people you see waiting to use it, most of whom are not actually Starbucks customers.

Life is a Cookie... A Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookie.

Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Cookies

Yes. This recipe combines the two most wonderful things, chocolate chip cookies and CHEESE. Of course, it's cream cheese so they don't taste like cheese or anything. But the fluffiness of the cream cheese adds some fluffiness and cakeiness to what would usually be the traditional chocolate chip cookie, which is already delicious on its own.

Is this recipe worth a try? YES. Especially if you are a fan of dipping cookies in a nice glass of milk like I am. These cookies are maybe the best milk-soaking up cookies I have ever encountered.
For the original recipe, take a gander at How Sweet It Is, a blog I stumbled upon when in search of an interesting twist on chocolate chip cookies. I pretty much followed her recipe verbatim, except I noticed the cookies needed about 12 minutes of cooking, not 8-10. Blame these high New Jersey altitudes:

Cream Cheese Chocolate Cookies

1 cup butter

3 oz of cream cheese

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

Cream butter, sugar, eggs, and cream cheese together. Add vanilla and mix. Stir in flour and salt, just until blended. Fold in chocolate chips.

Bake for 8-10 (12!) minutes or until edges are golden brown. The cookies will remain light in color.

A Dr. Seuss quote. After seeing Suessical recently, I have a renewed sense of appreciation for him these days.
