Ricci's Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

PERFECTION CAN be tiring.  There’s just no other way to go from that state.  But courtesy of a tub of sweet treats, I conceded that perfection could pull a surprise too.  And in this case, it came by way of a sinful addition right smack at the center – a cute dollop of caramel.

I first wrote about my friend Ricci’s chocolate chip cookies here.  A few other treats have come and gone between then and now – punctuated by the likes of my death-by-chocolate favorite that is the S&R muffin – but this tub of her “Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies” deserves mention in this space.

A cute dollop of creamy caramel brought perfection to a whole new high!

Just how good were these cookies?  I had to flick off my selfishness switch and opted to share.  Even my diabetic Mother couldn’t resist a bite – okay, she had a whole one to herself.  But that meant working her meds and her Omni blood sugar monitor on overtime.

Max’s classic fried chicken to help convalesce

17 02 2010

I FIND that Max’s classic fried chicken makes one of the best pasalubongs.  To wish one of our officemates convalescence, we brought her a couple of these really good fried chickens when we visited last week.  It’s a way to tell her and her husband our best wishes – through some form of comfort food.

Waiting for really good fried chickens at Max's at Town.

While I waited – as the chickens are always cooked to order – I had a tall glass of pineapple juice.  I might as well get a dose of fiber while I was virtually getting fatter on my ass, with thoughts of the tender and flavorful chicken meat and crackling skin.
