October is a wahoooooo-wonderful month, as evidenced by all the fantastic people celebrating birthdays (wahoooos to Random York, and Vanessa Brantley Newton and Christer, to name a few). Tomorrow is my daughter Nona's birthday, too. She will be turning the big double-digit of 10. So, today was spent baking giant, warm, gooey, and sweet chocolate chip cookies for her to share with her class. These cookies are absolutely decadent and to-die-for. And I was sure to add in a little extra sugar and chocolate for Eric Barclay who always appreciates a little added goodness. For anyone interested, I found the recipe here.
Whew! Speaking of sugary sweet, look at this gorgeous gem of an award created by Yoon See!
