As you know we have been church hunting non stop since arriving in NYC.  Then alas through Crossfit Jay met an exceptionally wonderful girl who invited us out to church.  Thanks to her generous and inclusive spirit we have cultivated the most exceptional church family, and met people that really have changed how homey New York feels. Every other Thursday there is a bible study, but I have been cooped up in a lecture hall every Thursday night this semester.  So it is with great excitement that I exclaim that tonight is my first evening of freedom to enjoy the company of those we have come to hold dear. Horray!   So naturally with two finals and three summer classes stand between me and mastering all of education I decided to bake cookies for tonight rather than crack a textbook (It seems to be a theme this year). So please enjoy the fruits of my procrastination.  These rich, seriously delicious cookies do not disappoint.    Continue reading “Chocolate Drop Cookies”

If you remember I enlightened a small but exceptional segment of the New York population to the awesomeness that are Naniamo Bars last weekend.  As a result I was left with ample cream base that I didn’t want to go to waste.  I decided to try my hand at a quick and simple batch of cream biscuits.  These sweet and savory baked goods are a lot less work than their butter laden counterparts, and make significantly less mess.  As such you don’t have to spend your time cutting in any butter which is a real win in my kitchen.  Extra bonus; everything can be accomplished in one bowl so your kitchen won’t look like a flour bomb went off.  So if you really want to wow your dinner guests with a batch of homemade biscuits these ones give the appearance of complexity when in fact they are quick, simple and painless.  Enjoy!
