My Famous Chocolate Chunk Cookies


Today as I was perusing my Facebook after my walk with Remington (it’s my cooldown time), I saw my neighbor had posted a picture of her foot wrapped up and in a boot with the caption “ouch”. I immediately thought, oh no! I hope she’s OK! Deanna will need a treat to cheer her up. Flowers are always nice, but I wanted to put my heart and soul into something nice for my lovely next door neighbor. I tried to decide if I should bake her a cake, or maybe brownies, or quite possibly my famous chocolate chip cookies. I decided to go with the chocolate chip cookies. Deanna and her husband have two of the most adorable little girls. I knew the girls would love fresh baked chocolate chip cookies just as much, if not more, than their mom and dad.


My mother-in-law, JoAnne, loved my chocolate chip cookies. She was always telling me she wanted me to sell these cookies and make a name for myself. I’m still considering the possibility of selling my cookies commercially, so I can’t give out my recipe quite yet. Dennis has looked into what needs to be done to make this happen. Stay tuned … hopefully, you’ll see Sunshine and Savory’s chocolate chip cookies on the market one day in the not too distant future.

I took the cookies over to Deanna and her family this evening and they loved them!


Deanna is going to be just fine, turns out she had to have surgery on her foot. She said “it was a planned injury.” This is good news, I was afraid she’d fractured it. Dennis sees her in one of her exercise classes in the park on the weekends while he’s out running Remington. He told me “they really work hard in that class!” I’m glad to hear she didn’t hurt herself.

This is where I usually post my recipe, but that will have to wait until I’m ready to share it with the world. Once I do, I hope you all try it and like it.

Until next time, Kris

I love when my house is filled with people, having friends and family over for a meal feeds my soul. There is nothing I enjoy more than preparing for a dinner party, a holiday dinner, or a book club meeting when it's my turn to host ... If I could, I would own a Bed and Breakfast! This would ensure I'd always have someone to prepare a meal for. Being with others and sharing my table is what I look forward to most. I was born in Wisconsin and after I got married in 1987, my husband and I moved west for his job. He had just graduated college and we were married a couple months later. An interesting tidbit about me is that I never cooked a meal before I got married. I taught myself how to cook and found that I really enjoyed it. One of the first meals I made after we were married was a shrimp pasta dish. I made this for myself when my husband was on business travel and I had so much fun inventing this meal - this was the start of my love of cooking. I probably won't be posting much on shrimp dishes, since I am now allergic. Big bummer! I was allergic to lobster, and then had an issue with scallops, so just never had a shrimp after the scallop incident. Why couldn't I be allergic to something less enjoyable?! My favorite celebrity chefs are Ina Garten and The Pioneer Woman. I hope you enjoy my blog!
