Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies & Secret Recipe Club

Its Secret Recipe Club time again!! Are you as excited its October as I am?! October officially is fall to me, which means PUMPKINS!! Pumpkin everything, mainly decorations and food. So...

For Secret Recipe Club this month I was assigned Inquiring Chef! I was excited as I always am to check out a new blog. Its home to Jess, she's originally from Kansas and now her and her husband live in Thailand. Her site is full of all kinds of travel and kitchen adventures. She has so many delicious recipes I'll be going back to try. These are just a few... Vanilla Cookies with Nutella Filling, Salty Caramel Ice Cream, Light and Fluffy Whole Wheat Pancakes, and French Yogurt Cake with Lemon.

The recipe I chose was Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Cookies. I saw these and I was immediately sold. The 'chewy' part threw me a little. I wasn't so sure about a chewy pumpkin cookie but they are so good. Soft, chewy and they melt in your mouth!! Go visit Jess, show her some love, and try something new and delicious!
