Recipe #4 - Bakery-Style Chocolate Chunk Cookies
By: Payroll Accountant, Samantha Rutkowski
What you will need:
2 cups + 2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp salt
1 ½ sticks melted, unsalted butter
1 cup dark brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
6oz chocolate chunks for the batter, plus more for topping
In medium-sized bowl, whisk together the baking soda, flour, cornstarch, and salt. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat together the cooled, melted butter, the dark brown sugar, and the granulated sugar for about one minute. Then add the eggs and vanilla extract. Beat until combined.
Slowly add the dry ingredients and mix briefly. Fold in 6oz of chocolate chunks.
Cover and refrigerate the dough for 1 hour.
Remove the dough from the fridge and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Put a piece of parchment paper onto a rimmed baking sheet. Roll the dough into 2-inch balls and place onto the baking sheet. There should be enough
room for up to 6 dough balls. Refrigerate leftover dough, or prepare another baking sheet to go in after the first sheet finishes baking.
6. Bake 10-14 minutes, rotating the sheet about halfway through.
7. Remove from the oven when cookies are very lightly browned on the top (they will still look gooey).As cookies are cooling, press additional chocolate chunks into the tops. Top with flaky salt.
Recipe #5 - Egg Fried Rice
By: Recruiter, Ashlee Stevenson
What you will need:
1 tsp + 1 Tbsp vegetable* oil
3 large eggs, whisked lightly
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 ½ cups frozen mixed vegetables
2 Tbsp butter
4 cups cooked and chilled rice (I use brown)
3 Tbsp soy sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
Sesame seeds (optional)
Sliced green onion (optional)
Heat a wok or large, deep skillet on high heat. Add 1 tsp vegetable oil.
Whisk in eggs and cook, stirring often, until eggs are set. Transfer to plate.
Add 1 Tbsp canola oil to the pan. Add onions and cook until translucent; about 2 minutes, stirring often to avoid burning. Stir in garlic, then add frozen vegetables and cook until heated through. Season with a pinch of salt.
Create a hole in the middle of your vegetable mixture and add butter, then add cold rice to the skillet and stir to combine. Press mixture down into the pan to brown the rice – you will hear popping and sizzling, and that’s what you want – then stir and repeat a few times. It’s fine if the rice is chunky; it will break up a bit as it warms.
Return the egg to the pan and stir to heat through.
Remote from heat, then stir in 1-2 Tbsp of soy sauce. Use more or less based on your liking.
Garnish with sesame seeds and sliced green onions; serve immediately.
Leftovers can be store in a tightly sealed container for up to three days.
You can substitute olive oil, however, it has a lower burning point than vegetable oil
