For the Love of Chocolate Apron
Well, finally a new apron. It is a reproduction 50's hostess apron pattern. Simplicity 5961. It uses a yard of fabric, but many yards of trim. I added a battenberg lace trimmed heart to the bib area. It is 11:27pm on Sunday. I just stitched the last stitch and tied this apron onto Andrea so I could snap some photos before it goes out in the mail tomorrow. It is on it's way to Pennsylvania to a farmgirl! My oven is still broken, so I hope she doesn't mind a fresh baked apron in place of a dozen of chocolate chip cookies! I do bake the bestest chocolate chip cookies in the world though....well so say my husband and kids. Here is my recipe: Use the recipe on the bag of Nestle' Semi Sweet chocolate chips, but substitute Giradelli 60% cocoa chips, use real vanilla not imitation, use large eggs, use Domino light brown sugar, bake them on parchment paper and take them out one minute early. Do NOT overbake. Cookies continue baking for about 1 minute after taking them out of the oven. Cool them on a rack on parchment paper. Well, there you have it. The world's best chocolate chip cookie. Oh, don't forget to stir in the most important ingredient: LOVE!
Thanks for blogging with me!
