How’s that for a recipe name?  Let me tell you, it is dead on because these cookies are chocked full of chocolate!  Bless you heart, Pioneer Woman, for coming up with this recipe that went straight to this chocoholic’s heart. These are amazing!!!  I really need to stop with the exclamation points, but these deserve all of them and more.

Pioneer Woman Chocolate Chocolate White Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

2 cups granulated sugar

2 whole eggs

3 tsp. vanilla extract

2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 cup cocoa powder

1 1/2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 cups white chocolate chips

(Get good quality white chocolate chips.  Kroger’s Private Selection chips are wonderful.)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a baking mat.  Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, scraping the sides once.

Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition.  Mix in vanilla.

Sift the dry ingredients together then slowly add to the butter mixture.  Gently blend in the chips.




Using a cookie scoop, dollop the cookie dough onto the baking sheet.  Bake for 9 to 11 minutes or until the cookies are done, but still soft and chewy.  Let cool before snarfing them all down!  (Insert Cookie Monster noises here.  Nom, Nom, Nom!) Makes approximately 36 cookies.

I have a confession to make…I am a Southern cook who has never been able to fry meat.  The shame! My husband says that he can tell when I fry something, because the smoke detectors go off.  Sad, but true. It seems I never get the temperature quite right.  Either the oil is too hot and the outside of the meat is black and the center is raw or the oil is too cool so the meat is done in the center, but greasy on the outside.  Enter Pioneer Woman and her recipe for Fried Round Steak!  She has saved me from my frying dilemma.

These are great with potatoes and gravy, but also make great sandwiches with just plain white bread.  Mmm, mmm!  I get hungry just thinking about it.


3 lb.s cube steak

1 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp. seasoned salt

3 tsp. ground black pepper

salt to taste

1/2 cup canola oil

2 tbsp. butter


Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Mix together the flour, pepper and salt to form a dredge for the meat. Season both sides of the steaks with more salt and pepper before coating the steak in the flour mixture.



Add the butter to the warm oil right before frying the steaks.


Place the steaks in the hot oil/butter and fry on the first side until they are a deep golden brown.  Flip and cook on the other side for about 3 minutes for well-done.



Remove them to a paper towel lined plate and serve hot. Tasty!!
