How many chocolate chips do you prefer!?!

I had some baking adventures today – chocolate chip cookies and chocolate chip banana bread.  Yumm-o!

My husband is such a snob when it comes to his chocolate chips to cookie ratio and he prefers just 3 chocolate chips per cookie (sometimes only 2 depending on how large the cookie is).  That is about 1 chocolate chip per bite if your trying to calculate!  I realize that may seem daunting to some of you, but really I just don’t mix in the chocolate chips with the cookie batter.  I wait until they are scooped out on the cookie sheet and then gently and precisely place 3 chocolate chips on each and every cookie (evenly spaced 😉 ).  For those of you wondering – I used Tyler Florence’s chocolate chip cookie recipe.

So this little quirk of his got me thinking; how many chocolate chips do you prefer!?!  I know some people that would rather have more chocolate than cookie and now that I have married one, I know some that would prefer less chocolate.  Nate is really not a chocolate person to begin with so it makes sense.

Here is a pictures of the chocolate chip banana bread.  I used a recipe I found on Pinterest and you can see the pin from the blog post from Serenity Now here.  It’s delicious!  I’ve made it several times and several different ways.  This time I omitted the peanut butter chocolate chips and opted for semi-sweet chips rather than milk chocolate.  Simply because that was all I had!  It was delicious – even received a call from the hubby this morning telling me what a delight it was 🙂

I just love baking.  Wish I had more time to do it!  Hope you all have a wonderful day and would love it if you shared some of your delicious baked goods.

Yummy in my Tummy

Yummy in my Tummy

My baby is getting so big already. He turned 5 months old last Thursday! It sounds cliche, but time really does fly. Especially when you work part-time, try to keep up with housework, make time for your hubby, the dogs and a little time for yourself. Who am I kidding??? There is no time for yourself! I try to remember, or as my husband would say…”you’re a person too!”. It is so hard, but every time we are all spending time together I remember how its all worth it. Love my life!

This was Fisher’s first time eating rice cereal. He doesn’t seem too terribly interested in food yet, but it was fun. Plus, I think it helps him grow and keep his tummy nice and full.
