A few weeks ago, I decided to try out a new recipe and it was a huge success. Now, this recipe doesn't have you putting oreos inside of cookies so it's not as cool looking, but it did turn into a really great chocolate chip cookie.
I found the recipe over at Cook's Country. I didn't do much to change it up except add a pinch of cinnamon to the dry ingredients. However, the cookies came out really great! They were chewy with a bit of a crunch, flavorful, and stayed soft for a long time. Everyone loved them! Try it out!
The Chicago Marathon was also a crazy success and a great reason to bake (and eat) some cookies. It was my third Chicago Marathon and 4th marathon. I finished with a PR of 4:18:39. This is 12 minutes faster than my last best time! I was so excited. I finished with my best running buddy, Jana, and we were both so happy! I celebrated with Brian and my family and it was a great day.
Now, I need to recover and get ready for the New York City Marathon on November 6th! I'll keep you posted on my ongoing training!
