Hot Chocolate Cookies

I saw these cookies on another blog a while ago and thought about making them sometime.  Yesterday I whipped them up for our Family Home Evening treat.  The kids loved them, especially since they have hot chocolate mix in them.  We've been drinking a lot of hot chocolate lately.

I think it's funny that I found this recipe that has hot chocolate in them.  A year or so ago, I was away from home for a meeting or something.  While I was gone my hubby and kids made some brownies.  My hubby didn't know where the cocoa was, so he used hot chocolate mix instead.  The brownies turned out great and were really yummy!  Maybe he should have blogged about it.  

Hot Chocolate Cookies 
recipe found on Tasty Kitchen blogYour Home Based Mom, and Real Mom Kitchen

1 c. salted butter
1 c. white sugar
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
3 1/4 c. flour
4 packages (1 oz. packets, NOT sugar-free) hot chocolate mix
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/4 tsp. baking soda
1 c. milk chocolate chips
1 c. white chocolate chips
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugars until smooth.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.

In a separate bowl, combinef lour, hot chocolate mix, salt and baking soda.  Add to wet ingredients in 3 to 4 parts, making sure all is incorporated.

Fold in chocolate chips.  Chill dough for 30 minutes to firm up dough.

Scoop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 9 - 11 minutes or until edges are golden brown.  Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.

* I only used semi-sweet chocolate chips since that's all I had on hand.  And I didn't chill the dough and the cookies turned out just fine.

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
