You Know You’re in a Fancy Restaurant When…


You know you’re in a fancy restaurant when there is a dish that ends in:  “____ (fill in the number) ways.”  Duet of chicken (Dale, Top Chef, Season 3), Trio of Pig and whatever whatever a few ways.  The examples could go on forever.  And to be honest, I’m not really a fan of the trend.  But, this, well, this is pretty bad ass.  I consider anything thought of on a lazy Sunday afternoon, while in PJs, bad ass.

And, you don’t have to dirty your kitchen very much with this 2 way dessert. In fact, it’s actually less work. Brilliant!  Unfortunately, I can’t take credit for this creation.  Anna (aka homemade hot chocolate) strikes again.  This dessert, actually, is perfect with some drinkable chocolate.

Chocolate Chip Cookies Two Ways

Follow whatever directions you have for chocolate chip cookies.  Reserve a few spoonfuls of batter (try not to eat it all while the cookies bake.)  When the finished cookies are cool enough to eat, break one in half, spoon a layer of batter on one side, top with the other.  It’s a cookie dough batter cookie sandwich.  Or, to make it sound more impressive: chocolate chip cookies two ways.

You know, we’re always trying to class things up here on ES.
