Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

The name says it all.

I needed something to take to my friends for allowing me to stay the night in their home. So I made these: 

I substituted a bag of mixed dark & white chocolate chips. Honestly, I think everyone may enjoy these in a smaller version because they are very big. Remember to adjust cooking time to the size of your cookies. 
Another bit of food porn for you:

The original recipe is found here: Best Big Fat Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie.

Pupsicle! A frozen treat for dogs like Jack

Ok, this one can be filed under "super easy"! Just 3 ingredients: Apple sauce (natural of course. Jack is sweet enough; he doesn't need sugar), plain yogurt, and smooth peanut butter.

Whisk together: 
1 (4 oz/111 g.) container natural apple sauce
1 (6 oz/~150 g.) container plain yogurt
*about 3 tablespoons peanut butter

Pour into containers and freeze. I reused the applesauce cup and the yogurt cup. Then I had enough for 2 heart-shaped Reynolds foil cups. You can add a dog bone for the handle if you want. To get it out of the container, you may have to let it sit in a shallow pan of hot water for a few seconds. 

* I didn't really measure the peanut butter. I just put in a few spoonfuls until it was the right peanut butter color. You can taste if you want, but there's no sugar, so keep that in mind! 


Is this for me? 
Jack approves!
