Heeey! I'm back. I hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving.
Ok, so I've started! I went to the thrift store the other day with the hubby and we found some great pieces to start with. I'll post pics soon as I figure out what I'm doing, ha! I'm poking along at it, but I do have the sanding done. I'm getting excited. I'll def post pics of my progress and of course the finished product. Yay!
Munchie Monday!

Chocolate, chocolate chip cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. 
 Thank you Miss Kathy!
