The Best Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

A warm, chewy chocolate chip cookie is a universally beloved treat.  They remind many of us of our childhood and the inevitable bliss of a sugar high created by scarfing down a whole plate of fresh baked goodies.  While I enjoy making all types of cookies, chocolate chip is my go-to because I know that they will be a hit with almost everyone.

Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies: Brownies From A Box

Brownies made from a boxed mix may not be the most sophisticated dessert, but they are one of the cheapest.  Making brownies from scratch involves several sticks of butter, good quality chocolate and a handful of other ingredients; boxed brownies require oil, water, eggs and a mix that generally costs less than $2.  Budget-wise, it makes sense to use a mix.  If you add in the convenience and familiar deliciousness then making boxed rather than from-scratch brownies is a no-brainer.
