What makes a rainy Sunday better?

Homemade chocolate chip cookies of course! Football doesn't hurt either. Go Eagles!

I use the Tollhouse recipe minus 1/2 stick of butter (I think it makes them fluffier - and healthier).

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened (I use 1.5 sticks)
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) Chocolate Chips

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla extract in large mixer bowl until creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Another - On the road review

I heard about a cupcake truck in Albany at the very begining of the summer. I FINALLY got to go last week and it was worth the wait. The woman who runs the truck posts on facebook and twitter where she'll be and forecasts how long and what flavors she has on the truck. We tracked her down at a mall outside of Albany with PB cup, PB and Jelly, Lemon Raz, Shirley temple, Strawberry Supreme (strawberry cupcake and vanilla BC) and Orange cream. She must bake all day and night! The cupcakes are $2-$2.50 and they are soooo good. We had the (clockwise from the cherry) Shirley Temple, mocha, PB&J and PB Cup.

My favorite was the PB&J ~ to die for! Shirley temple was creative and delish, mocha was tasty and PB Cup was good but tasted closer to a mocha than a PB Cup.
Seriously how cute is this truck?

Good thing for my thighs I'm not in Albany too much anymore. Hee Hee. If you find yourself in Albany or close by - check out Fluffalicious!
