Three types of chocolate – milk, dark, and cocoa powder – means three times the deliciousness.

Most food bloggers write about their kids: the cupcakes for Susie’s birthday party, or the pasta dish that even picky Tommy will eat. I don’t have kids, so no mommy diary entries here – but I do have a mother, a father, and a cat.

A cat that likes to have her nose in everything.

And here she is lapping up the milk I was planning on drinking.

She does make a nice white contrast to the darkest-of-dark chocolate chip cookies, don’t you think? I doubt I’ll be inviting her on any more baking expeditions, though I promise to find a recipe for some homemade kitty treats in the near future. Currently, she’s crashed on the couch between me and my mother, a sort of decorative centerpiece between two open Mac Book Airs. In a couple hours, around two a.m., she’ll be tearing around the house yowling bloody murder about absolutely nothing. (She used to defend the house from mice, but in her advanced age, she’s moved on to lazily batting at the tiny tree frogs that stick to the windows like some sort of plague.) She is quite insistent on her evening treats, however, so I’ll shut up, give you the recipe, and give her her treats.
