Grilled Bacon Jalapeno Wraps
It's hard to tell if they're tears of joy or jalapeƱos. The cream cheese will cool off your tongue, and you get a lot of texture with this fast-to-make appetizer. They're the more attractive, more interesting member of the veggies + dip family. Changes I made: used turkey bacon and fat free cream cheese to lower the calories and fat. Then I can eat more of them.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I
So I've been trying not to eat dessert lately after admitting to myself that I had A Problem. But today, I needed a chocolate fix. A VERY chocolatey fix. I made these and they're perfect for what I was looking for. Soft, some crunch from the walnuts, gooey chocolate morsels in the center - delicious. Changes I made: 1. I kept the amount of sugar the same, but divided it between white and brown sugar. 2. I halved the entire recipe because if I make 4 dozen cookies, I'll eat at least half of them. 3. I didn't have a cup of chocolate chips at home, so it was more like 1/2-3/4 cup of milk chocolate chips, and the rest were Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chips. The recipe yield was 17 cookies in the end (instead of 24), probably because I consistently make cookies a little bigger than they should be, and my boyfriend kept eating batter as I was plopping it onto the baking sheets. Bake for 8 minutes exactly; don't worry if they look undercooked. That keeps them gooey + amazing.
