Fall draws me to comfort food. I think mostly to baking because I LOVE to bake. I really enjoy making cookies, but chocolate is and always will be the love of my life. While I’m taking part in blogging adventures this is allowing me to dig back into my creative side. I’ve been longing for those calm, cozy autumn days where the rain dabbles on your windows, as you are wrapped in a throw blanket, and you don’t feel guilty one bit taking last bite of a warm gooey brownie. I’m sharing some of my favorite chocolate pictures and adding in this breakfast cookie recipes.
