Best Chocolate Chip Muffins

Best Chocolate Chip Muffins

My oldest son just loves chocolate chip muffins.   They are probably his favorite out of all the muffins.  In fact, at the grocery store if he is along, he always ask for one.  Now he has food allergies and it’s harder for him to eat store bought food with paying some kind of price.  So we went searching for the best chocolate chip muffin recipe and I believe we found it.   We tried a few recipes and these seem to be our favorite.   The top is a little crunchy and it’s not too cake like in texture.   If you have a chocolate chip muffin recipe and you think it’s great, we would love for you to share.

Here is the recipe:

Yields 12 large muffins

Sift together and set aside:

2 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder

In the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place, whisk together on high speed until foamy and slightly stiffened.

2 eggs
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together in a measuring cup with a spout:

1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Slowly add the oil and butter mixture to the egg mixture in a slow stream as the mixer continues to whisk.
Mix together

1/2 cup whipping cream

1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Add slowly to the mixing bowl continuing to mix but at a reduced speed.
Fold in the dry ingredients by hand with a rubber spatula being careful not to over mix. Don’t worry about lumps in the batter, they are fine. When the dry ingredients are almost incorporated, gently fold in

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Spoon batter into well greased muffin tins, filling them to the top. If you like you can sprinkle about a teaspoon of sugar over the top of each muffin before baking.
Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for about 20 minutes or until a wooden skewer inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Cilantro Thai Grilled Chicken

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Cilantro Thai Grilled Chicken

My family and I eat a lot of chicken.   So I am always looking for new ways to marinate chicken to grill.   We grill often here in Phoenix because the weather is nice plus it’s easy clean up.   I love that!  Not only do my family and I like chicken but we also love Thai food.  This recipe was simple and I mean simple.  It’s only 4 ingredients.   My husband absolutely loved the recipe and has asked for me to make it again already (I just made it on Saturday)!

Here is the recipe:

Cilantro Thai Grilled Chicken (serves 4)

2 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup cilantro
2 tablespoons asian fish sauce or 1 tablespoon of GF soy sauce
1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

Place all the ingredients above in a food processor and process until smooth.

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts

Pour marinade over chicken breast and let flavors sink in for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
Prepare your grill or broiler. Cook until temperature registers 165F on the meat thermometer. Let the chicken breasts rest for 5 minutes before serving, this prevents the meat from drying up.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Double Chocolate Chip Cookies (Levain Bakery Copy Cat Recipe)

This week My Baby Pajamas is featuring the famous Levain Bakery Double Chocolate Chip Cookie from New York (of course it’s a copy cat recipe so who knows if it’s the real thing).   But I will tell you this; these cookies are delicious!   The recipe makes about 12 of the giant double chocolate chip cookies.  However, I didn’t want to have these huge cookies lying around the house so I made the cookies smaller and reduced the cook time.  They turned out perfect!  The cookies are very rich cookies so I could not imagine having a huge cookie.   All I have to say is if you like double chocolate chip cookies, you definitely need to make these, your family will thank you 🙂

Here is the recipe:

Yield: 12 very large cookies
Ingredients:
1 cup (2 sticks) cold, unsalted butter, cubed
1¼ cup sugar
2 large eggs
½ cup dark cocoa powder
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
¼ tsp. coarse salt
1 tsp. baking powder
2½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350˚ F.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.  In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar.  Beat together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.  Blend in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed.  Mix in the cocoa powder until well blended.  Add the flour, salt and baking powder to the bowl and mix on low speed just until incorporated.  Fold in the chocolate chips with a spatula.  Transfer the dough to a work surface and knead briefly by hand to be sure the ingredients are well combined.

Divide the dough into 4 ounce portions (or divide into 12 equal pieces).  Roll each portion of dough into a ball and flatten just slightly into a disc.  Place on the prepared baking sheets, a few inches apart.  Bake 16-20 minutes.  Let cool on the baking sheets 5-10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

To make 30 smaller cookies:  I measured about 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons of cookie dough onto the baking sheet.  I then cooked the cookies about 12-14 minutes.  If you want the cookies gooey I would cook around 12 to 12 1/2 minutes.

Enjoy baking!

Top 10 Books for Babies and Toddlers

Top 10 Books for Babies and Toddlers

Did you know that literacy begins at birth?  I know it seems crazy but when reading to your infant, your child hears you using many different emotions and expressive sounds, which fosters social and emotional development. Reading also invites your baby to look, point, touch, and answer questions — all of which promote social development and thinking skills. And your baby improves language skills by imitating sounds, recognizing pictures, and learning words.

But I feel the most important benefit to reading out loud to your infant is that it makes a connection between you and your baby.  Your baby benefits because he or she loves hearing your voice and loves being close to you.  I believe this is a win win for both mother and child.

Did or do you read to your baby?  If so, what are their favorite books?  My husband and I read to both our boys starting at birth.  It was our favorite time of day with them both.   It was part of their bedtime routine every night.   Bath, pajamas and book.  In fact, we still love to read with them.   Our youngest is now reading to us at night and our oldest loves to spend time in our room reading with us after our youngest goes to bed.   Don’t know what books to buy to start building your babies library?  Here is a list of the Top 10 Books for babies 0-3 years old according to Scholastic.com.   If you know of another great book to add to the library, please leave in the comment area.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Cheese and Chicken Stuffed Shells

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Cheese and Chicken Stuffed Shells

Welcome to My Baby Pajamas Tuesday Cook Off!  This week I am featuring Cheese and Chicken Stuffed Shells.   It really is such a simple recipe and not that time consuming for stuffing shells.  In fact, my husband helped me with this dish and we had a great time making it together 🙂  It could have been the wine we were drinking while we were cooking but nevertheless we had fun!

For the sauce, I used my homemade sauce I make and freeze.   I usually make a big batch and then freeze for recipes like this one.   I will share my sauce recipe in an upcoming post.   It’s not a family recipe at all because my mom still hasn’t shared it with me !!  She says it’s not written down it’s all in her head.  Anyway, I hope to get my hands on that recipe soon.   I think using a homemade sauce just adds to the recipe.

Here is the recipe:

12 jumbo pasta shells
1 1/2 c pasta sauce
2 large egg whites, gently beaten
1 1/2 c part skim ricotta cheese
4 oz. chicken, cooked and diced
1 c frozen spinach (chopped) thawed (drain all excess water)

2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp chopped basil
3/4 c part-skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/3 c grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350
Cook shells in boiling water according to the directions on box.
Rinse with cold water and set aside for later use.

Lightly spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray and spread 1/2 c of pasta sauce evenly over the bottom of the pan. Set aside.

For filling: Stir together egg whites, ricotta, chicken, spinach, garlic powder, basil, and seasoning. Stir in 1/4 c of mozzarella cheese and parmesan cheese.

Fill each shell with mixture and place filled shells in the baking dish on top of the sauce. Spread remaining sauce on top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and salt and pepper to taste. Bake for 30 minutes.

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Pretzel Bread

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Pretzel Bread

Today’s Tuesday Cook Off, My Baby Pajamas is featuring pretzel bread.   As you know, my family is crazy for anything pretzel.  In fact, I am starting to run out of ideas featuring pretzels.  There is a steak house here in Scottsdale that makes the best pretzel bread.  One night my husband was craving it but wanted it for a sandwich…the pretzel bread sandwich was created.   I found this easy recipe for the pretzel bread and next thing I knew we had dinner.    You can also make these into pretzel sticks with butter. YUM!

Here is the recipe for the pretzel bread:

In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together:

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water

Let sit about 5 min, until its foamy. Then add:

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Get the dough hook going and gradually add 4 C flour. Let the machine keep going until the dough looks a little bit shiny and totally flexible (about 4-5 min)

Let it rest in the bowl, covered with a towel for an hour, until doubled in size.

Divide dough into 6 for rolls, or two for baguettes and shape accordingly.. Let those chill out, covered while you get a large pot of water boiling with a hefty dose of baking soda. (about 1/2 C) . Preheat your oven to 375 and lightly coat a baking sheet with EVOO.

When the water is boiling, cut little slits in your rolls, then slip them into the baking soda bath :)

Flip at 2 min on the first side and take them out after 3-4 min. Oil them up with a little more olive oil and sprinkle with maldon (or coarse  sea) salt.

Bake until perfectly browned (12-15 min) and eat warm!

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Auntie Anne's Copy Cat Pretzel Recipe

Tuesday Cook Off ~ Auntie Anne’s Copy Cat Pretzel Recipe

By now you probably have figured out that my family loves pretzels.  If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, you have seen many pictures of pretzels.  They LOVE pretzels.   They would have me make them every week.  So with that being said, I have tried many pretzel recipes.  But this one is my favorite.   This recipe is for 12 pretzels but most of the time I cut the recipe in half and only make six.   Pretzels taste so much better right from the oven 🙂  Also, I usually make 3 regular with salt and 3 with the cinnamon and sugar.    The picture is of one of each.

I hope you enjoy this copy cat recipe of Auntie Anne’s pretzels.   I want to thank Yammies Noshery for the recipe!! Enjoy 🙂

Here is the recipe:

2 cups milk
1 1/2 tablespoons (2 packets) active dry yeast
6 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter, melted
4 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons fine salt

1/3 cup baking soda
3 cups warm water
Coarse salt
8 tablespoons butter, melted in a shallow dish

Warm up the milk in the microwave or on the stove for just about one and a half minutes. It should be about 110º. If it’s too hot it will kill the yeast. You should be able to comfortably keep your finger in it. Stir in the yeast and let it sit for about 3 minutes. Add the butter and sugar. Add the flour about 1 cup at a time and the add the fine salt. Kneed for about 10 minutes with a stand mixer, or by hand. Put it in a greased bowl and cover with greased cling wrap. Let rise for 1 hour in a moist, warm place until doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 450º. Punch down dough and divide into 12 lumps (I like to divide it in half, then divide each half into three, and then divide each remaining one in half again). Roll them all out as thin as you can. Combine the warm water and baking soda in a wide bowl. Form the dough into pretzel shapes, then dip in the baking soda water. Place on a greased baking sheet and sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake for about 7-11 minutes or until browned. Dip each in the melted butter while hot. Serve with cheese sauce.
