you don’t mess with perfection

when i saw a recipe on pinterest for a single chocolate chip cookie in a cup, i thought it was too good to be true and had to try it immediately (literally…i just saw it today). while it was pretty simple to mix up and make, the results were just not up to par. to be fair, i did overcook them a bit but even if i hadn’t, i don’t think they’d be nearly as good as a real chocolate chip cookie. the fella thought they were ok but also said he’d prefer the real deal.

at the end of the day, it’s practically as much hassle as making a whole batch – with the exception of putting the cookies on the baking sheet, what’s the difference between mixing up a small amount of batter or a large batch? if you’re going to go to all that trouble…might as well make a big batch so there are plenty of cookies PLUS raw cookie dough to eat straight out of the bowl. 😉


About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
