It's my bff's birthday; aka "The Ogre", aka The wine guy at www.wineschool101.com, aka Chris
Anyway, food is a big part of our friendship so it isn't at all strange that I gave him a beautiful pot filled with beautiful soup as a gift.
It's just my basic chicken soup with thyme but the dumplings in it are amazing. I can't take credit for them, it's a recipe from America's Test Kitchen
What's a birthday without a treat? I made a batch of these chocolate peanut butter cookies too:
There is no way to make them look pretty but they are so,so good. Here is a link to the recipe, they are no bake! http://www.bonappetit.com/recipes/desserts/article/no-bake-chocolate-peanut-butter-cookies
