Okay, so apparently I was too busy raiding the Halloween Treat Bucket and baking cookies for Josh's birthday party with my family today (seriously, birthdays seem to last a week around here!) to realize that I was supposed to do a post on "all things edible" yesterday. Well, in truth, I have a serious love for food and would have had a very difficult time narrowing it down anyway. Sooo to make up for it, I'm going to pass on this uber-yummy chocolate brownie cookie recipe that so sweetly obliged my chocolate addiction. Oh, and it's super easy! It's from my usual source: (And if you've never checked their site out before - they have the BEST recipes for dinner too!)
Mmm this may have to become a new staple cookie around here!

Chocolate Brownie Cookies

6 squares BAKER'S Semi-Sweet Chocolate
4 squares BAKER'S Unsweetened Chocolate
6 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1-1/4 cups sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1 tsp. CALUMET Baking Powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 cups toasted chopped PLANTERS Pecans (I used walnuts!)

PREHEAT oven to 325°F. Microwave chocolates and butter in large microwaveable bowl on HIGH 2 min. or until butter is melted. Stir until chocolate is completely melted. Add sugar; mix well. Blend in eggs and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder and salt; mix until well blended. Stir in pecans.
DROP rounded tablespoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets.
BAKE 12 min. or until cookies feel set to the touch. Cool 1 min.; remove from baking sheet. to wire racks. Cool completely. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 1 week.

Sounds delicious. So, I don't know if I am doing this right bc I keep leaving my ideas here in the "comments" section. Well, there is a great website,, that has amazing recipes. You get access to a weekly meal plan, plus shopping list organized according to isle. They also keep each weeks budget super low. You can customize with meal plans for 2, or for families. They also allow you to customize low-fat, low-carb, even point systems. It's only 1.50 per week and is a HUGE time and money saver!

Comments work great! The only time I really need actual posts would be when it's more involved... like costumes or birthday party ideas... something we need pictures for! Off to check out that site.. hadn't heard of it before. Thanks again!
