The husband gets what the husband wants...

Brandon has been asking for chocolate chip cookies since the weekend and well, since I have to cook meals enough for the 5 days we are down in Pensacola at our hotel each week, it's hard to make what we don't need right away. Plus, hauling our bags, dinners and the dog back and forth is hassle enough, let along another thing of cookies and such. Don't get me wrong, I would have made them, but it's just an inconvience really in the end. So, I decided that since I am home waiting for Zoe to get spayed, I thought I'd take the chance to bake some chocolate chip cookies and some blueberry banana almond muffins. I rallied myself up this morning at 5:30am so I could be decently awake for the hour drive back to milton where Zoes vet is. Poor girl, so excited to go to the vet, yet she had no idea what she was in store for. One thing about Zoe is that she's so caught up in the moment, meeting and greeting people, flinging crabs around on the beach, and sniffing, that she has no time for separation anxiety. I wonder, is that a good thing? Last time she caught a crab, she didn't realise we were a mile down the beach hiding until 20 minutes later. Well, independent women she is.

Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is not my own recipe. I got it from: Baking911
Next time, I will add perhaps half the sugar. It was way to sweet for me but it is such a wonderful cookie. The outside is nice and crisp and the inside is just the right amount of chewiness.

Also, I used eggbeaters instead of regular eggs and cut out a tablespoon of the butter (using only 3 tbs). It didn't seem to make a difference. I would definitely make this again, like I said with less sugar.
