Brown Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Today I’m guest blogging over at 52 Kitchen Adventures! I was super excited when Steph asked me to be a part of The Chocolate Chipe Cookie Challenge. I made brown butter chocolate chunk cookies, and they’re pretty tasty if you ask me :) I talk about my favorite method for baking cookies, which results in perfectly baked cookies every time, as well as the key ingredients that will make your chocolate chip cookies stand out from the rest. The best part about this challenge is that you’re invited to participate as well! To read my guest post and to get the recipe for these brown butter chocolate chunk cookies, click here.

‘Banh Mi’ — A Gourmet Vietnamese-Style Sandwich

Today’s Reader Guest Post for The Holiday Project: Nicole and Sheeter from Davis, California [These two make an awesome team. Sheeter makes the best homemade BBQ sauce and ribs while Nicole bakes up the most delicious treats. It’s always so much fun going on food adventures with them!] *********************************************************   Banh mi (pronounced ‘ben me’ most places [although its southern pronunciation ‘bang me’ is, arguably, way funnier]) literally means bread in Vietnamese. But it’s much more than bread. It’s spicy and sweet, sour and savory, crunchy and chewy … all at once, which is probably why this Southeast Asian sandwich has such a cult-like following. Banh mi shops can be found in virtually any major city like say, San Jose, CA, home to some of the best banh mi outside of Vietnam and, more importantly, Lee’s Sandwiches, the most successful banh mi chain ever. Full disclosure: There may be some [Continue Reading…]
