Sometimes, I find baking easy but other times I find it a chore lol. I guess, it all depends on the mood I am in. Anyway, I baked this Double Chocolate Crisp Cookies last week and loved the result. Here is the recipe for it.
1 cup countrycrock butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 double chocolate crisp candy, chopped
- Preheat oven to 375.
- Mix butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla in a large bowl until well mixed. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda until blended. (Dough will be soft and creamy).
- Add the chopped choclate candy.
- Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls on ungraded baking sheets 3 inches apart0
- Bake 10-12 minutes until edges are lightly golden.
- Cool 1 minute in a wine rack.
- Remove from sheets and cool completely.
- Store in an Ozeri good storage container.
I love these Ozeri INSTAVAC BPA-Fee 8-Piece Green Earth Food Storage Container. It has a nesting set with vacuum seal and locking lids. I love its instant vacuum freshness without pumps, motors or confusing parts. All you have to do is simply press down on the lid and air is forced out via the one-way valve. The patented valve removes excess air to reduce naturally occurring bacteria. It also releases pressure to prevent spills and splatters in microwaves. As a Mom, anything that would save us time in cleaning kitchen utensils is a win-win.
The wave pattern on bottom of each container keeps cut fruit and vegetables elevated from water and juices. My kids love fruits so I always pre-cut some of the fruits that they like and oput them in these containers so it is ready when they want to snack. It saves me time also in preparing their school lunches in the morning. There is a handy date dial allows you to record when food was first stored and monitor days kept in the refrigerator.

In three weeks, we will be moving to our new home so I am glad that I have new pans to use in my new kitchen. I got this 3-piece Green Earth frying pan from Ozeri. The sizes are 8", 10", and 12".
I have had their pans and has been a huge fan of it ever since. They are very easy to clean and as long as you know how to properly care for it, it lasts for a long time. I love that Ozeri utilizes a new scratch-resistant dual ceramic coating which makes it easier to clean. Even though it has a superior abrasion resistance, I always clean the pans myself because sometimes, the kids would clean with the very rough cleaning materials. These pansa re made out of durable heavy-gauge die-cast aluminum with no heavy metals or harmful chemicals which I also love. You can buy this set via amazon.
