Today I went to a Tampa Bay Lady Bloggers Cookie Swap! OhMyGoodness. So many cookies! I have been busy cooking these Chocolate Chip Cookies from Cup of Joe (ie. one of my fave blogs). Unfortunately when I went to make the dough I didn’t have any cake flour so I swapped it out with AP flour. I did use the bread flour though. The rest of it I kept the same except I used Ghirdelli semi sweet chocolate chips instead of chocolate bark. Also, I think my oven just sucks and they didn’t come out with the crispy edges like they did in the blog.
We each baked 2-3 cookies per atendee plus an extra tray for tasting the cookies.
Here is my set up at the party for the tasting tray:
I love these chalk boards the hostess bought for labeling the cookies.
SOOO many cookies.
These peppermint oreo balls were my fave
We voted on the best tasting, best looking, neatest ingredient, and best over all cookie. Here is the hostess reading the winners.
Then we were given bags and boxes in order to put together large goodie bags of cookies to take home. Don’t ask me what I am gonna do with 100 cookies that I now have.
I know it’s the end of the year because time is just flying by. I can’t believe another Sunday Smiles is upon us. So here we go!
Oh wait, here’s a holiday gift guide for a crossfitter
The Stages of Getting Addicted to Homeland made me LOL.

Gift Wrapping Station makes me happy. If only I had the patience to put this together.

Now we’re watching TED the movie because there is nothing else to watch! It’s actually pretty funny!
