Just before we get to the ‘good stuff’ I wanted to remind everyone that this is the first day of a week of fantastic parties. Today, hop on over to colorissue.blogspot.com for her 30 minute fix. Tomorrow’s amazing hostess, Debbie from Debbie doo’s and a stunning front planter.
So this is why I love blogging. The community. I know that I’ve said it before but it bears repeating that in blogland there are a lot of phenomenal folks who go out of their way to share. They even become part of your own larger support system even though you’ve never actually met them.
Some of these folks I talk to almost everyday. That’s amazing.
One such phenomenal lady is DeAnn from the SIP project (there’s a link for her below but she can also be found on my blog roll page). You are in for such a treat getting to know her and I’m thrilled to have her guest on my blog. I’ll be guesting over at hers as soon as I have an extra special project done (almost there).
Hi I am DeAnn from The SIP project and want to thank Jane for having me over today, I am excited to be here Jane was one of the first bloggers I ‘met’ when I started my blog, she was kind and supportive something every new blogger needs.
I love me some good grub, who doesn’t? (one of my dreams is to go to NYC just to eat for like two weeks and try everything I can get my hands on) I have had a sweet tooth sense I can remember and cookies are my kryptonite…can I get an amen?! I am sharing my FAVORITE chocolate chip cookie recipe. After you try it you will NEVER use another recipe again, well you might try other recipes but you will always come back to this one! I found it in cooks illustrated magazine a few years ago, that’s my favorite food magazine. I love that they take a good recipe and make it great.
Make this cookie recipe, make any one of your favorite recipes and next time you do, double it. Take it to your friend or neighbor…what they’re not sick or dying of the plague??? Welll……………………………
We don’t need a reason to just do something nice for the heck of it. What if your friend or neighbor is already having a good day and you take over some yummy goodness and make their already good day GREAT! It’s also a good way to meet a neighbor and make a new friend…or keep them 😉. Maybe you do know someone who’s having a rough go of things lately. We don’t always know if someone is having a good day(s) or not so “Be, kind for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” – Jane’s boy Plato 😉 I mean what does it hurt to make someone’s good day even better?!
While putting together this post I a had spark of inspiration. I LOVE food but up until this point hadn’t found a way to include food in my blog in a way that connected with my purpose. Well I found that connection! I am kicking it off here on Adventures in Dinner! I really want my blog to be interactive a place to share what you have done a place you can come to feel uplifted. Friends meet a new series of posts called….
How it will work:
1.You make your FAVORITE recipe and take it to someone, anyone,family, friend, neighbor, co-worker, first person you see after you leave your house etc you can be as safe or adventurous as you would like.
2. Send me the recipe, I put it on my blog with who it was submitted by (if your a blogger I will put a link and picture from your blog).
3. Tell me who you took it to (you don’t have to put there name you could just say my neighbor across the street).
4. (Optional) You can also add why you took it to them…”I haven’t had a chance to meet them yet,” and what there reaction was, “They said it was perfect timing they were late and hadn’t had a chance to eat breakfast yet” etc. etc.
After a few posts I will make my favorite muffin recipe, another one that I truly can’t live without. It’s the BEST! I try others but just like the chocolate chip recipe, I always come back to it. I want to know what recipes you have that are like this!
Time to dish my favorite cookie recipe.
