Top Secret

There has been some recent begging and pleading for my recipe for the world traveled chocolate chip cookie bar thingys. I have been reluctant to share it with you folks because I fear that you all will start whipping up these delicious morsels yourselves and then shipping them all over the world to parts unknown and then I will no longer be the only blogger whose one claim to fame is that her cookies have been to Europe even though she never has.

And how is it that I have never been to Europe?

Everyone I know has been to Europe.
(that may be a slight exaggeration)

Mom, Dad, apparently the right and just thing to do after your children graduate from high school (which I managed to do) is to send them off trekking around European countries for three or four weeks.

Dave, apparently the right and noble thing to do is to take your wife to Europe for a vacation. Greece would be nice, but I'd settle for France or Italy or England or Germany or Ireland.
(or anywhere off the continent of North America for that matter)

But I digress.

Up until last night I wasn't going to give in to the pressure of sharing my Top Secret Cookie Bar Thingys recipe. I mean you people should probably know this about me by now, but I usually do the opposite of what people tell me to do. You say go right, I go left. You say eat this, I eat that. You say share your cookie bar thingys recipe, I clam up. It's my way of rebelling.
(now if only someone would tell me not to get a tattoo because i really want one)

But then this happened:

Trish, Trish, Trish.Who knew you were a closet Paula Deen. Cuz I have to admit, you look like a seriel killer in that goggles pic. :)You know I kid. Often.So are you gonna share the recipe or what? I'm for anything that "looks" done on the outside but is straight up "raw" on the inside.Melissa at Stretch Marks

Yes, folks, Melissa Lee over at Stretch Marks called me a closet Paula Deen and a serial killer all in the same comment.

I think I'm flattered.

So, because Melissa is playing all nicey nicey, I'm going to tell you my secret recipe for those delicious, ooey, gooey cookie bar thingys.

Alright, are you ready for this? I'm a little nervous but here goes:

Do you still love me?

You nut! You are so stinkin hilarious especially when it's laced with rebellion. I can't believe these people didn't know your recipe. You told us in the original post. I'm definitely gonna try that receipe sometime.
Let get together and chit chat about last weeks sermons. When is a good day for you?

you crack me up!

Funny Trish Funny. However, you are not the only one that can claim a lack of European tourism in your life. I can also claim that distinction as well. Maybe we can tour Europe together? And the guys can watch the kids. Or we could just start a club. . .

A little diet dr. pepper just came out my nose. I've never read your blog before but THIS is funny!!! May I add you to my blogroll??

Karen said...

I'm trying to decide if you are funnier, or Gina. Maybe you're equal! I guess it runs in the family!!
By the way- do they sell nestle choc chips in Europe?

TOOO funny!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was wondering! Ever since you posted about those cookies, I have been craving them. I even bought two bags this week to make them. I prefer them baked in the pan over the actual cookies and I often make them that way. Now I'm really hungry for some cookie batter....

OK, fine...the recipe is there. But the technique is what I'm needin', girl.

Two things you must know about me: I have been to Europe. Ireland, specifically. It was a 2 month mission internship, so it was for Jesus and not a "wooooo, I went to Ireland and you didn't!" kind of thing.
Second, I so want a tattoo, too. It's the REBEL in me. Before I'm 40, I'm thinking it's gonna happen. Wanna go with me?

Now...technique, please.

Do you remember the Friends episode where Pheobe kept telling Monica about these amazing cookies. Monica tried like 50 recipes only to have it be this recipe? So funny!

Oh, and I have a tattoo.. yeah, i am a total rebel.
