Cooking with friends: The Bachelor

Cooking with friends is a tradition that started when I was in college; my friend Piper and I decided to bake cookies for some of our friends, one of whom was the Bachelor. Now that I have a food-based blog, I've decided to reconnect with many of my friends through cooking with them. Do you have friends who are foodies or just want to learn how to cook? I recommend that you invite them into your kitchen to cook! And please let me know that you did! Cheers!

The Bachelor about to make the magic happen.
What does one think of when they think of bachelorhood? Take out? Pre-packaged food? Beer? All of those faults do apply to my Bachelor, but he is willing to take things a step further...he cooks. I'm not entirely sure if he does things from scratch...

Or the semi-homemade way. Either way, the result is the same: delicious foods. He's got a thing for cheesecake, so he makes it regularly. Ok...maybe not too regularly; but enough that he didn't need to consult a recipe to make it. 

You can find the basis for this recipe on Kraft

Yes, those are premium white chocolate chips in the batter.

In the oven it goes! The house smelled so delicious while it was baking. I wonder if they have a candle that could mimic it?

  1. I think I had a beer after you left. :)

  2. Are you saying that you need a drink to deal with me? I'm kinda hurt...

  3. Why would I need a drink to deal with you, when I like to drink with you? Would have had one while I was making this if I had known you would mention me drinking in this.
