Secret Recipe Club – the chewy

It’s SRC day once again.

Secret Recipe Club

I’m super excited, because the blog I was assigned, Good Thymes and Good Food, is awesome. There are a bunch of recipes there I’d love to make, like this buffalo chicken dip and these crash potatoes. This method for cooking microwave popcorn will be put into practice here soon, to satiate my 10yo’s love of the stuff. But for this day, I couldn’t resist the Chewy. We have a serious sweet tooth at our house. And even though I know I just made chocolate chip cookies not too long ago, those are long gone. These did not disappoint.
