The Last Day

Today is the last day of January and I am HAPPY to see this month go. I am determined to make February be a better and more positive month for us.

I tend to deal with stress by cooking. I am addicted to finding and trying new recipes from Pinterest. I recently made Chicago deep dish pizza and it was amazeballs. The sauce was to DIE for. The crust needs a bit of tweaking but even NJhusband who is a solid thin crust kind of guy was loving it.

In the cookie category, I attempted a recipe for fudgie cookies that was an absolute MESS. They melted into one thin gloop on my pan that burned. I had to toss the whole thing and add it to my "never again" board on Pinterest.

I totally redeemed myself last night though. I tried a recipe for oatmeal cookies that was a major WIN. My only regret is not doubling the recipe. I rarely make a recipe I wouldn't tweak at least a little, but these little guys were 100% perfect and will definitely be added to our rotation. They even stayed chewy the next day! Score!
