Woohoo! Cookies, part two.

Today, I received part two of three cookies in the mail. Thank you so much, Julia!

Adorable packaging - and what a cute card! 
She sent Double Chip Chocolate Chunk cookies. Peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, and huge hunks of chocolate. These, I'm going to bring to work to share. I already ate two, plus the dozen I received in the mail a few days ago, and I can't possibly fit into my dress for my sister's wedding in two weeks if I eat the rest!

I'm going to be baking and sending out my cookies tomorrow, since I don't have a whole lot of time next week. I hope everyone is looking forward to my cookies as much as I did theirs!

My first cookies!

I received my first dozen cookies this morning, from Corinne over at Reverberations. DELISH!

Super adorable packaging. Plus they're German, which is a huge bonus for me. And Corinne reads lots of German books and makes lots of German food, so I think we're going to get along famously.

I know, quality blows. But the container is so cute!
Was I supposed to take a picture of the cookies before I ate them all? ...oops.

German shortbread cookies with sea salt. And I'm really looking forward to this recipe!

As a side note, I'm sorry I haven't been around again lately. The in-laws moved in, so I moved out, and I've just been under a lot of stress. My 7-lb. weight loss in the last month is probably an indicator that I haven't been cooking for myself very often. I'm having spaghetti and meatballs tomorrow night and then perhaps I'll get back into the swing of things around here.
