My love affair with chocolate!

Last week, I discovered a recipe for these soft, decadent, rich Chocolate Fudge Cookies! These cookies are so delicious with a soft, fudge-like brownie inside. It was love at first bite!

I even made them a little more nutritious by swapping out some of the white flour for whole wheat flour and it doesn’t make a difference at all. I recently starting using a white whole wheat flour from Trader Joes because it is very light in color and taste with the benefits of being a whole grain. Whole White Wheat is a type of wheat and has all the three parts of the seed, the bran, germ and endosperm. The only difference is it lacks the bran color. Bob’s Red Mill also produces white whole wheat flour. It’s great and I love using it. Next time, I’m going to experiment with using all white whole wheat flour.

As a matter of fact, as I was typing out this post and recipe, I decided to make a couple batches for Lucas’ pre-school teachers. It’s his preschool graduation tomorrow so I wanted to bake up something special for his wonderful, sweet teachers. I can’t believe he is graduating preschool. I remember his first day. I still remember Lilliana’s first day. Feels like it was just yesterday yet now Lilliana is almost as tall as I am! I wish Julian was here to help us celebrate this special day with Lucas. I know he would be filled with so much love and excitement around his brother and sister. He will be with us in our hearts tomorrow, as he is every single day!

Enjoy baking and eating these delicious chocolate cookies.

    • Shelley, do you remember when I used to carry him in every morning to drop off Lilliana in his little baby car seat? I can’t believe it. It is a little sad to say goodbye to Long Hill. I am going to miss these days so much, I already do! Wishing Julian was the next one there to carry on the tradition.
