My whole family uses one chocolate chip cookie recipe that either my great grandmother or my grandmother discovered before I was ever born. It’s like a right of passage for a woman in our family to perfect her CC cookies according to this recipe. Imagine the horror my grandmother displayed when I told her I strayed from the gospel of chocolate chip cookies and discovered my own (that didn’t call for crisco...) She tried to be cool about it but it was obviously NOT cool. .
Disinherited Chocolate Chip Cookies
3/4c packed br sugar
1/4c granulated sugar
1 stick melted BUTTER
1 large egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
*mix all these together
1 2/3c all purpose flour
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp *mix these then add to the “wet” ingredients.
Add choc chips (or don’t)
Bake at 350 for like 10-14 mins.
Last step: tell Meemaw her recipe is still better than this one 😂
Went out to eat last night with some friends. The lighting in the restaurant was similar to a dungeon so no pictures were taken. Actually that’s not true. One picture was taken of me doing my best jack sparrow impersonation. 🤦🏼♀️. Y’all.
So here’s a picture of a goose at @watermarkbr We actually ended up there for some cocktails. I don’t know who the bartender was but he makes one hell of an old fashioned 💪🏼#geauxtigahs
Next month’s goal: order something other than seared tuna. I don’t know i can though 🤦🏻♀️. Ate @williesbr today and had the best server Heather. She was so patient with all my “what should I order” questions. Audrey had the fried catfish and actually ate it so I think it was good. I didn’t get a bite... My #tacos had woah!sabi sauce and I wish I had ordered a measuring cup full on the side. #ilovesauce . ~Laura~
There’s an #oldfashioned movement happening among the 30-somethings as a new-found appreciation for #bourbon and all things #whiskey emerges. Because I’m #jacksparrow , I had my husband make me one using #eldoradorum . It was stellar. But we didn’t write it down 👌🏼🙄. So if you have an old fashioned recipe for rum, please send it to me and I will post it!! An Old Fashioned isn’t an Old Fashioned without bitters. Head over to @twine_br for @woodfordreserve bitters. Excellent quality and a couple drops go a long way.
SMOKE AND BARREL HAPPENING NOVEMBER 10th IN LAKE CHARLES!!! FREE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC!!! Food and drink available for purchase.
Cheers!!! 🥃 ~Laura~
