Mama land

the only good overdose...of dark and white chocolate chips and grated chocolate

Groggy children, cold mornings. They try so hard to shake off the blearies and uncomplainingly trot off to school. Since 9/11 this nervous mom has been wringing her hands until the kittens are home safe and sound. To relax I make them something good/sweet to eat, and Ginia's chocolate chip cookies from has become their new favorite. Grating a whole chocolate bar into the batter gives this cookie a dizzying chocolate buzz. (I used Trader Joe's Belgian bittersweet.) My only dotir also suggested adding white chocolate this case a chopped up Ghirardelli white chocolate baking bar. The wife of a Seattle Mariner player donated the recipe for charity and we are very grateful.
