Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Brr, it’s starting to look like fall around these parts.  While I am ready for cooler weather, I am not looking forward to snow.  I wish fall could stick around for several months.  I like that mix of semi-warm days and cooler evenings.  When it gets to colder days and colder nights, that’s when I start to cringe.  Cause I know daylight savings time is coming and bringing snow with it.

The cooler weather is making cooking and baking more appealing though.  It’s so nice to bake some cookies with the air conditioner off and the windows open.  Today I’m sharing a new chocolate chip cookie recipe with you.  These cookies turn out nice and chewy but a little crispy around the edges.  That was easily remedied though with a slice of bread in the storage bag with them.

Barbecue Pulled Pork Sliders

barbecue pulled pork sliders

Applebees restaurant has little barbecue pork sliders that are super yummy.  So the inspiration for this recipe comes strictly from them.  I’m usually not a pork or red meat eater but there’s just something so delicious about it once it’s slathered in rich homemade barbecue sauce.

I found a different barbecue sauce recipe to test out that’s based on ketchup and brown sugar.  It’s another winner!  It turned out sweet and tangy with just the right amount of zip.  Combined with the sweetness of the King’s Hawaiian honey wheat rolls I used, they were oh so yummy!

I find that using a crock pot to slow cook the pork works best for me.  I used around a 4lb hunk of pork this time but I divided it in half after it was fully cooked.  I’m using the other half of the shredded pork later this week for pork tacos.  That recipe will be coming soon too!

Fall Favorites From Bath and Body Works

bath and body works fall candles

Candles are my thing.  As I type, I have three burning throughout the house.  And since I work from home, I’m burning candles every single day.  So as you can imagine I go thru quite a lot of them.

My newest candle obsession are scents from Bath and Body Works.  I am in love with the four that I have now so I wanted to share them with you.  My absolute favorite is the Creamy Pumpkin.  Oh so good!  It’s a buttery pumpkin scent with hints of sweet caramel.  Mmm, smells good enough to eat.  LOVE it!

My second favorite would have to be the Apple Crumble.  The tart smell of apples mixed with spices and some buttery vanilla.  It’s so good and the apple scent is so strong.  I love apple scents in the fall and this one’s a keeper!
