Happy Belated 4th of July!

Hope everyone had a Happy Fourth of July!

I started my day off by sleeping in and it felt wonderful! After letting me sleep Zach woke me up for a later breakfast and we ate outside at our brand new patio set! Zach’s parents surprised us with it Thursday night as a first anniversary gift. We love it and the chairs rock which is awesome! Seriously, everyone come over and sit in them, they are so comfortable!2014-07-03 20.20.13

Most years we usually spend most of the day at Zach’s baseball game on the 4th of July, however this year it was cancelled so we had all day to do whatever we wanted! Apparently I was in the mood to bake, I pulled out my chocolate chip cookie recipe figuring I could bring them to the family get together we were going to later. These cookies always turn out so good, so I really enjoy making these because I don’t have worry if they will out. These cookies are foolproof.

For this recipe you will need butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, eggs, flour, baking soda, salt and chocolate chips.

Beat butter, both sugars and vanilla until creamy.

(If you are in a hurry you can use a grater to “soften” your butter, which happens to be what I did this time)

This little guy is the “secret” to my cookies. They always come out uniform in shape and are always the perfect amount of chewy.
