Posted on July 12, 2008. Filed under: Cookies |

Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate-Chip Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

3/4 cup unsalted butter, melted

1 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

1 egg

1 egg yolk

2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended.  Beat in the vanilla, egg and egg yolk until light and creamy.  Mix in the sifted ingredients until just blended.  Stir in the chocolate chips by hand using a wooden spoon.  Drop cookie dough onto the prepared cookie sheets.  Cookies should be about 3 inches apart.

Bake for 15-17 minutes (depending on size of cookie) in the preheated oven, or until the edges are lightly toasted.  Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.

Crockpot Beef Roast

Posted on July 11, 2008. Filed under: Beef, Main Dish, Slow-Cooker |

~Crockpot Beef Roast~
1 3-lb. beef roast
2 packets Good Seasons dressing mix (the original recipe called for one Italian and one Garlic-Herb, but I’ve mixed and matched with great success)
1 12-oz bottle or can of beer- any, just not dark

Sprinkle 1 packet of dressing mix in the bottom of the crock. Put the roast in. Sprinkle the other packet of dressing mix on top of the roast. Pour in the beer. Cover the crock. Cook on low for 8-10 hours.

Boom. Roast au jus. You can eat it this way- the meat will be tender and “shreddy.” Sometimes I take out the roast and keep it warm while I turn the crock on high and throw in a Tbsp of butter and whisk in a few Tbsps of flour, then cover the crock and let it cook for 10 minutes… boom, gravy.
