The World’s Best Triple Chip, Browned Butter Cookies (GF!)

For years, I thought wheat basically gave me life. I love to bake, and I love to eat all the gluten-filled things.  I am known for my creative recipes, and my Browned Butter Cookies have been a potluck staple for as long as I can remember. So when my doctor told me I should limit my gluten consumption, it was like a punch to the gut. No bread? Only gluten free cookies?!? For now, I’ll spare you all the tears, but saying it was an adjustment would be an understatement.

Now, a year later, I still enjoy baking and sharing what I’ve made with my friends. Some recipes, like this one, still contain ALL the wheat in their original form. But I also find a slight thrill in trying to make things gluten free. If there are any other gluten-free friends out there, this recipe is easily adaptable, and equally delicious. You can use any cup for cup flour exchange.  I also recommend adding an extra tablespoon of cream cheese to help make these Gluten Free Cookies amazing. However, for the sake of this post, please know all the photos use wheat flour.

My favorite part of this recipe is the bag of Nestle Triple Chips. I typically have to buy one bag of white chips and one bag of semi-sweet chips for this recipe. And while I don’t mind having extra chocolate around the house, I loved being able to just dump the whole bag into the dough. We even get the extra flavor of some dark chocolate- yum!

No-Fail Recipe for the Fluffiest Slime EVER

I usually have no idea what’s trendy or what “the kids” are talking about, but every once in awhile I’m totally on point with trends. I even feel like I’ve helped start one or two . When I got married, I wanted red velvet cake because it had been my favorite and my wedding colors involved red. But the bakery we used didn’t even carry red velvet at the time. Six months later, and BOOM- red velvet is all the rage, every bakery around carries it and every bride has it.

Then four years ago, my friends and I started a co-op play school for our young toddlers. It quickly became known that if it was my turn to teach, there would be a sensory activity. Usually it involved some sort of flubber-yes flubber- back before I knew the word “slime” was cool. I never intended to become the Mom who makes all the slime, but somehow I found myself passing around my recipe all the time.

When Jaymi asked me if I’d share my no-fail fluffy slime recipe with The Salty Mamas, I happily obliged. This recipe produces amazing, fluffy slime that your little one will want to play with for hours- and you might even have some fun too! I get my daughter in on the mixing, and she loves picking the colors and scents.
