Comfort Food at its Finest

I am all about healthy substitutes, whole wheat over white, skim over whole, grilled over fried, light over heavy…

With that said, sometimes a girl just needs a cookie. A real, old fashioned cookie. Complete with butter, sugar, flour, and chocolate. Lots of chocolate. 
ImageWith the season premier of the Bachelor set to DVR last night, I made my way into the kitchen, rolled up the sleeves of my robe-who needs an apron, anyway, and proceeded to empty out the contents of our cupboards. Luckily, with a sweet tooth like mine, I almost always have the ingredients on hand for a dessert of some sort.
