2 teaspoons of vanilla

1 cup mint chips or white chocolate chips I used @NestleUSA on twitter

4 cookie sheets if baking all at once
4 silpats or pieces of parchment paper if you use parchment make sure you spray with cooking spray.

Beat butter until creamy
Add Sugars, eggs and Vanilla until light and fluffy.
Next add in cocoa powder and baking soda

Then Oat flour after cocoa is thoroughly blended
Last add semi sweet chips and chips of your choice.

Chicken Pamesan and History of April fools day

This is a coyuple of days late but I thought I shoul re share this post.

This History of April Fools day is very interesting in 1582 King Charles 1X moved the New year from the week of March 25 - April 1st to January 1st. The problem was the people of this time were not as hooked up or connected as we were today. So some people celebrated on the Original date of March 25- April 1 and others who were more informed celebrated on January 1. The King heard that people were still celebrating on the old week of new years and he called them fools! These people were labeled as Fools and were sent invitations to phony parties, events and all sorts of other activities. The people who had been pranked became known as a "poisson d'avril" or "April fish" because a young naive fish is easily caught. However, the most common of all pranks  was to hook a paper fish on the back of someone as a joke. So today in honor of April fools day I'm going to do a good fake out recipe.
I love a good fake out recipe so in honor of April fools day I am going to share my Chicken Parmesan! Recipe. This is a great recipe because its quick and easy plus you are in and out of the kitchen within 30 minutes. My kind of cooking.
