I'm an ex-economist, lifelong-Californian who moved to New York to work in food media in 2007, before returning to the land of Dutch Crunch bread and tri-tip barbecues in 2020. Dodgy career choices aside, I can't help but apply the rational tendencies of my former life to things like: recipe tweaking, digging up obscure facts about pizza, and deciding how many pastries to put in my purse for "later."

I have so many things to say about this video, but I can't say them all in a public forum!! This just cracked me up - totally fun to watch the two of you race to get the cookies in the oven. I think I am voting for the peanut butter chocolate ones because the chunks of peanuts and the topping of salt sound delicious. Plus, I like the way the cookies are sort of lumpy and textured, instead of flat.

You two are so cute - you had me rolling with laughter! Salting the peanut butter cookies is genius - they sound amazing. I was lucky enough to try the naptimechef's double chocolate cookies the other day and they are incredibly delicious.

You guys are a riot, having more fun than I can imagine, just making cookies!

I had my eye on both of these recipes all week. There's no WAY I'll be able to choose!
