Chocolate Chip Kettle Corn Cookies

Chocolate Chip Kettle Corn Cookies

These chocolate chip kettle corn cookies mark the 100th post on The Convivial Table!! I’ll reminisce on this landmark in a moment. For now, a quick word on these cookies. Much like Joey from Friends I’ve always had the opinion that if things taste good separately, they taste even better together. Buttered popcorn I can take or leave; I’m quite indifferent about it. But with kettle corn, you’ll have to get your own bag because I’m not sharing mine. And since chocolate chip cookies might be the best thing on this planet, why not put the two together? You sure don’t have to like weird food combinations to love these cookies. Kettle corn and chocolate chips just make sense together.

Okay now for a little nostalgia. It’s been a little over a year and 100 posts to the blog. It’s pretty neat to be able to go back through my own posts and remember what was going on in my life at the time. Food carries a lot of memories. That’s the point of this whole thing.

People often ask me what my favorite recipe is from my blog. I often have a hard time answering because that’s like choosing a favorite from my children. Now that I have a hundred children, I’ll give you my top five, but not in any particular order…that’s just asking too much!

Pumpkin Honey Cake – Still the best Fall dessert I’ve ever had.

Fish Tacos with Cilantro Pesto – That cilantro pesto makes the dish. Put it over anything…maybe a trifle?

Macaroni and Beer Cheese – Gourmet mac ‘n’ cheese for adults.

Warm Winter Salad with Roasted Parsnips and Sweet Potatoes – For when you’re bored with salad, this will change everything.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with M&Ms – My first post and still a favorite. Chocolate chip cookies at their finest.
