Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter (melted
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup dark brown sugar ( I use regular brown sugar)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 (12 oz) bag of semi sweet chocolate chips
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
3/4 tsp. baking soda

Evenly position 2 racks in the middle of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone sheets.
Put the butter in a microwave safe bowl, cover and microwave until melted. Cool slightly. Whisk the sugars, eggs, butter and vanilla in a large bowl until smooth.
Whisk the flour, baking soda and salt in another bowl. Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients with a wooden spoon. ( Sometimes Josh has to help because it gets really thick!) Stir in the chocolate chips.
Scoop tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared pans( I use my cookie dough scooper). Space the cookies about 2-inches apart on the pans. Bake, until golden, but still soft in the center, 12 to 16 minutes. Transfer hot cookies with a spatula to a rack to cool.

These bottom two recipes are from my cousin. They are two of my favorite recipes! And they are super easy, which is always a good thing!

Cowboy Chili

1 Whole chicken or 4 chicken breasts ( I use chicken breasts. Much easier !)
3 cans of chicken broth
1 can black beans
1 can pinto beans
1 can black eyed peas
1 can yellow corn
Small can of tomato sauce
1 jar of Thick-n-Chunky Salsa ( I buy Walmart brand and use 3/4 the jar)
1 Pack of taco seasoning

Boil and cut up chicken. Rinse and drain beans and corn. Mix all ingredients together in large pot, bring to boil, let simmer 30 minutes.
I make corn bread muffins and put one in the bottom of the bowl, then add the chili on top. Then I top that with a little sour cream and shredded cheese. It's so good!!! (My mom and I made this as part of my frozen meals before Brody was born. We just finished the last jar and it still tasted so good!)

Corn Dip

1-(15 oz) can yellow corn (drained)
1- can shoe peg corn
1-can of Rotel
1-(4 oz) can chopped green chilies
1-(8 oz) package of cream cheese (softened)
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. chili powder
2 tsp. cilantro ( I use dried)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In large mixing bowl combine all ingredients. Pour into 9X13 baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes or until bubbly. Serve with Frito scoops or any kind of chips you like!

I am going to try and bake some of these soon. You have been one busy bee.

I can not believe you have been hand mixing all of these.

I love the new Christmas look on your blog.

Just wanted to say that I love your blog, and Brody is JUST PRECIOUS! I also wanted to say that your Cowboy Chili is AMAZING! My husband and I made it for dinner tonight, and it was a huge success - even with our 4 kids!!

Thanks so much, and good luck with the rest of the cookies!! :)
