Who doesn't love chocolate chip cookies?! This recipe makes melt-in-your-mouth cookies that won't dissapoint, and are a staple in our house!
1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 Tbs vanilla
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking pwder
1 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Optional: Add 1/3 cup of Skor pieces! This addition gives the chocolate chip cookies we know and love, a sweet kick! I highly recommend adding Skor if you have a sweet tooth like mine!!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream together butter, granulated and brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda. Mix dry ingredients well.
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients in 4 parts. This will ease the mixing. Blend well.
Add the chocolate chips and Skor bits. Mix.
Spoon cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Put in oven for 7-10 minutes. I like to keep it on the shorter end (7 mins) to make the cookies very soft and chewy. Recipe makes about 30 delicious cookies.
As I was cruising our vet's website (http://www.acc.citymax.com/index.html) this morning I came across a link they had posted for Veterinary Partner, a website designed to help you make sense of medical terms/ conditions that may affect your pet, as well as other useful tips. Here I found a link to their Canine Behavior Series (http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?P=SRC&S=1&SourceID=47). This page is FULL of information on everything you can possibly thing of relating to your pup, from training techniques, how to pick a puppy that's right for you and naming your puppy to socializing your dog, toys do's and don'ts and dominance issues.

I thought I would share a blog by a friend of mine all the way from Canada's beautiful East coast. The Sailor's Wife blog features to-die-for recipes from Newfoundland's own Sara (Green) Cole- Miss Newfoundland & Labrador 2009. While there are many delicious recipes on her site, my absolute favorite and go-to dessert is her homemade 'deployment brownies' from scratch. I am drooling just thinking about them! Check out her site- she even has recipes for dogs! This is a must see site and definitely worth coming back to again and again!
