I never thought I’d be so happy to have rain and cold weather, but I am! These last few days have been wet ones – very wet! As much as I do not like to deal with it, California needs its. It makes be very happy to know our water supply is getting replenished.
With the rain comes cold weather and a lot of indoor time. One of my favorite things to make on cold rainy days is hot chocolate – Abuelita (Mexican brand) hot chocolate. I remember my mother making the same Abuelita, which means grandmother in Spanish. As a kid, we were served hot chocolate with a bolillo, a roll. Now as an adult, I get to have hot chocolate with my favorite treat – cookies!!!
Wait, talking about cookies I have to tell you about my favorite cookies – Kelli’s Cookies! Kelli’s Cookies is a local, Roseville CA (Northern California), small business that has been around for 16 years and is woman owned. I discovered this company a few years ago when I was looking for a nice treat for a few of my co-workers. If you live in the Sacramento area, you must visit Kelli’s Cookies located on Douglas Blvd or the Fountains in Roseville, CA. However, if you’re not a local no worries. Kelli’s delivers nationwide via Amazon!
By the way, did you know that today is National Cookie Day! What? Yeah, I didn’t know until the other day and I decided to tell you about my favorite cookies. Kelli’s Cookies has so many varieties it is difficult to pick just one (can you tell? I bought three!) Chocolate Chunk, Snickerdoodle, Oatmeal Raisin, Toffee Fudge, White Chocolate Mocha, Lemon Coconut, Pumpkin Pecan White Chocolate – tried them all and I’ve never been disappointed. They’re so soft and chewy, Oh my gosh, so good!
So, pick up your favorite cookies, make a nice cup of hot chocolate and enjoy NATIONAL COOKIE DAY!
