My favorite salted chocolate chip cookie

My favorite salted chocolate chip cookie

Earlier this week as NYC braced itself for a historic blizzard I decided to use the downtime to bake. I had fond memories from last summer of Brooklyn bakery Ovenly’s near infamous salted chocolate chip cookie that totally hit the perfect balance of salty-sweet and moist at its center.

Out with the old

As early as December 26th and reaching a pinnacle in the days following January 1st, carcasses of Christmas trees start to appear on city sidewalks. Since most New Yorker’s live in apartment buildings this can often mean passing small mountains of discarded trees.

This Friday night

I spent my Friday night with my best friend and her daughter and it was awesome. Getting to catch up with my bestie, enjoy play-do popcorn and watch her daughter feed ‘Robot’ as she’s taken to calling their cat was just what I needed after a long work week. We enjoyed a bottle of wine … Continue reading
