Chocolate Chip Cookies with Sea Salt (recipe here)
I’ve been on a salt kick lately. It’s just so good. What it does to enhance flavors makes such simple bites taste so yummy, making me crave more. Or maybe I just want more salt. Sprinkle it on avocados, cantaloupe, bread and butter, or fresh mozzarella with some tomatoes basil and oil. I just want an excuse to put salt on something.
I was feeling a bit down the other day and I saw a post of one of my new favorite blog’s A Beautiful Mess for Dark Chocolate Chip and Sea Salt Cookie recipe and I thought to myself, I should make that! So I didn’t actually use their recipe, which was a nod to a Martha Stewart recipe, but I used my own, which is a nod to a Trader Joe’s recipe on the side of the flour bag.
It helped get me out of my funk for the time being as well as fulfill some more of my salt craving.
