Hey guys…I’m starting a new “thing” here on Nellie Bellie starring my girl Katie. Katie is the baker of the family. Okay, scratch that, reverse it…she makes all baked goods EXCEPT cupcakes. She kinda stinks at cupcakes. I don’t understand. But, she kicks heiney at all other baked goods. Like…kick it, send it to Africa, and then back again. Yep, she is that good. Several of the baked goodies already on Nellie Bellie are hers. You can see her very first post HERE (yummy brownies in a mug!).
So, I am giving her her own series. So I can have a reason to have yummy baked goods around my house. And not have to make them myself. She thinks it’s because I am being a good mother.
Ha! Shhh…don’t tell her.
So, please welcome my daughter Katie
and her new, amazing series…
Hi! I’m Katie Jane. I’m almost 15. I bake.
This is really short.
My kitty keeps coming and then leaving again. She needs to make up her mind.
I’m assuming that many of you have made New Years resolutions to lose weight. I’m also assuming that many of you have already broken this resolution. If you have not yet broken it, I suggest clicking the little red X in the right hand corner of your page and leaving my mother’s blog.
The other night we had a ‘family pinteresting night’. This night basically consisted of 30 minutes of looking at pins while waiting for my father to bring home dinner.
After a while of pinning, trying to lick Levi’s face, and moaning multiple times about how hungry I was, I saw a picture of chocolate chip cookies on the screen. Not just any chocolate chip cookies though, oh no.
Since I am a lover of Nutella and chocolate chip cookies, obviously I made my mother pin the cookies. (In case you didn’t know, you click on that link to go to the recipe)
My final opinion of the cookies:
HOLY BANANAS OF ALL THINGS COOKIES. THESE THINGS ARE HEAVENLY!
Like, no joke. They are amazing. When you bite in to them a symphony of chocolatey hazelnutty goodness explodes in your mouth and oozes onto your tongue.
Although, I should add that there’s a lot of work involved. You have to brown butter, cool the cookies for two hours, then stuff them with Nutella. My mother says it’s worth it, but she didn’t have to make them. And she says they are best warm from the oven. She’s right.
Okay, they might be worth it.
So if you like Nutella, chocolate chips, and breaking New Years Resolutions, try these cookies.
