Levain Bakery Copycat Chocolate Chip Walnut Cookie

So sorry I have been so neglectful of my blog as of late. In the last month and a half I have been dealing with making my photography business a legitimate business. So with that came trips to City Hall to get a business certificate, sending numerous emails to photographers to ask to assist and/or second shoot for them for weddings coming up this summer, spending time at banks to make up a business account, etc etc. So unfortunately this blog has once again gone by the wayside. This post is about a week and a half late, but these cookies were totally awesome. I stumbled upon this recipe on Pinterest, and was immediately intrigued. I have gone to Levain Bakery on the Upper West Side of NYC numerous times because it is a short walk from my sister’s place. The first time I went there was to get a treat for my boyfriend under my sister’s rave of a recommendation because he had been having a bad week. Anyone who has been there knows how awesome their cookies are, especially their Chocolate Chip Walnut cookie. These cookies are almost bigger than your hand and somehow are always warm and gooey […]

Nutella cookies with sea salt

When I found this super simple recipe the other night, I just knew I had to make it. Just five ingredients: Nutella, flour, brown sugar, an egg, and kosher salt. The best part was that I had everything with the exception of Nutella. It’s always nice when you don’t have to buy additional things at the grocery store.   So let me show you the world’s easiest, tastiest Nutella cookie recipe: Nutella cookie recipe from Ambitious Kitchen blog. INGREDIENTS 1 cup nutella 2 tablespoons brown sugar 1 egg 1/2 cup flour + 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt for sprinkling   This was such an easy, quick cookie recipe to create. I definitely recommend it. The one downfall was the fact that it only makes a small batch of cookies, I would double the recipe if you have a few people eating these. The cookies were so good that my boyfriend Matt and I ended up eating all of them in just one night haha.
