Did you ever watch a television show and see a food on there that you just HAD to have? That happened to me this week. My husband and I were watching a rerun of Throwdown with Bobby Flay and the focus was on chocolate chip cookies. He went up against a pair of women who competed in the Ironman competition, and who have bakeries in NYC called Levain. Their cookies looked so yummy (and as big as my head!). I mentioned to my husband that I would love to try one of those cookies some day. Well, he was in Manhattan on Friday and picked some up. Oh, my word, are they good. We weren't able to eat a whole one, so we have been munching a little at a time.
If you ever visit NYC or are a local, I highly recommend a visit. I hope someday to get up there to check it out for myself.
This weekend I was asked to make a birthday card for a little girl to give her grandma. The only information I received was that the girl and grandma bake cookies together, and since I had chocolate chip cookies on my brain, this is the card I made for her.

So sorry for the lack of blogging this week. It was a bear of a week with work, jury duty and a bunch of other things. Hope to be more active this week!
Until next time!
