This rich, decadent red velvet cookie with drops of white chocolate is a delicious treat for any occasion.
Red velvet is another kind of food that I had for the first time here in the U.S. and also another food that took me a long time to like. We can agree that most of the red velvet recipes are dry and and some have a strong taste of food coloring.
To make the recipe we used a gel food coloring that doesn’t leave the strong flavor that I just mentioned and also we used the white chocolate chips to make the cookie moister. It turned out delicious!!
I really enjoy any cookies, especially with chocolate chips, warm. I always warm them up before I eat them.
The last couple of days we have been so busy taking care of our sweet Chloe. Chloe all of a sudden started panting and couple of hours later, her legs gave up. Marilyn ran her to the urgent care and she was there for two days with a poor prognosis. They told us that she was paralyzed and there was no guarantee that she would be able to walk again. We were completely devastated with the news but thankful to have her alive. Since we brought Chloe home we feel that we have a new born: waking up every two hours to change pad because she lost urine control and making a mess. It has been three weeks now and we are more comfortable with the changes including a wheelchair that we have been using to take her for walks. We are not sure if she will be able to walk again but we are very optimistic that she will be able to stand to eat and potty.
We have to tell you that we couldn’t have taken care of Chloe with if wasn’t for Mark, our neighbors Kathy, Al, Alli and Deb. It would be impossible to provide all the care that she needs with our work schedules. We are being able to travel to celebrate Marilyn’s Birthday ( we had everything reserved for this trip before everything happened to Chloe) because of the people I mentioned before and our friends Mari and Marcio that are rotating to watch Chloe while we are gone.
We can’t wait to try all the goodies in Amsterdam!! We will post on Instagram and also recipes on the blog.
