Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies {Leftovers Club}

Apr 07


It seems like my only posts are for the Leftovers Club. Well, that’s true! My only posts are for the Leftovers Club, but I am savoring my last week with my previous baby. I am so, so not ready to go back to work– I know it’s going to be much harder on me than my sweet baby.

This past weekend, I had a huge accomplishment– I ran a 10 mile run in Washington, D.C. This is a big deal  for me– it got me out of the house to train. It got me moving when getting up and getting dressed with the baby bear was hard. I feel really proud that this happened just three months after my sweet baby was born.

Of course, I celebrated with cookies! The theme for the club this month was salt. I craved potato chips when pregnant, so it seemed like a match made in heaven– salty and sweet and chips in cookies. I was paired with Ginger from Stark Raving Delicious, and I hope she likes them.

    I’ve always wanted to put potato chips in cookies. After having the bars Alli sent to me, I know this is a combo I will enjoy. These look delish!

    Elizabeth, that is awesome that you completed that run! I feel your pain with going back to work. It’s so hard after you’re home all the time with the baby. “hugs” Your cookies sound absolutely amazing. I can’t believe you have participated every month during and after you had the baby. You’re such a dedicated person! xxoo
