2013: It’s a New Year, So Have a Cookie!

1 Jan

Happy New Year! Today is day 1 of a brand new year, and this year is the first time since 1987 when a year had four different numbers! Cool, huh???

I decided that on January 1st, 2013, that I would also go on a Baking Adventure, so I went to Whole Foods and bought ingredients to bake some paleo chocolate chip cookies!

By the way, I got the recipe from this site, though I decided to get chocolate chips instead of chunks because, well, they were cheaper! I also pasted the recipe on the body of this blog post to make it easier for y’all.
