Ever since signing up for Netflix streaming again, I’ve been binge watching Nikita. I can’t seem to get enough of these type of shows – covert missions all over the world. Normally I might wish I had been watching when it started, but I like this whole binge watching thing. We get to catch up without any commercials and can watch as many or as few episodes at a time as we want.

We did the same thing with Lost and even 24, binge watched until we were up to date and then watched live. Now it’s a whole new list of shows. So fun watching this way. Do you agree or would you rather watch when the show is on and current?

It’s kind of like how some people have to read books the moment they’re out and others refuse to read them until the series is complete. Can’t stand the suspense waiting for more? Which side are you on… read/watch now or wait for more?

It’s a fact that Monday’s are better with cookies. Every Monday should include them. I think we’d all be more productive with a cookie or two, especially with these mint chocolate chip cookies.

They’re perfectly soft and chewy, loaded with semi-sweet chocolate chips and Andes mint candies for a fun seasonal twist. These are a must make. They’re simple to whip up and will be devoured by anyone in the vicinity. So, grab them while you can!

Make room in your holiday baking plans for these mint chocolate chip cookies. You’ll be glad you did!

    Mondays definitely need to start with cookies!! It’s some sort of unwritten rule I think. Especially ones with Andes Mints :-) We like to watch shows on Netflix and bypass all the commercials. All though right now we are pretty much caught up…I need a new series to start!

    • Rachel — December 8th, 2014 @ 1:36 pm

      Commercial free is amazing! If I could, I’d probably watch everything that way. At least we can fast forward through them now ;)

    These are my favorite! And I love that it only calls for 3/4 cup of Andes, because this means I can eat the rest of the bag straight from the freezer ;)

    • Rachel — December 8th, 2014 @ 1:37 pm

      Great idea to keep them in the freezer! :)

    I would definitely rather binge watch!! I hate having to wait week to week for a new episode! And I don’t want to wait for about a dozen of these to appear in front of me either – they look great!

    • Rachel — December 8th, 2014 @ 1:37 pm

      Haha if I could, I’d make it happen. :)

    Just got Netflix streaming..& though I have never been interested in the major networks series..I discover “a Gifted Mam” & loved it! Patrick Wilson doesn’t hurt my eyes at all! Reading about his background, I discovered he is a very accomplished man.

    Also watched a series I had never heard of: Hostages. With Toni Collette – she was the mother in the 6 th sense. Again, an actress with a long, impressive background. This series had many twists & turns! I ended up setting my iPad in the kitchen with extra speakers so I could clean the kitchen while I watched! Riveting series!

    Now, I would love these cookies but have to get cake flour & bread flour – which I have never bought before. Are their substitutes? I am temped to just make regular chocolate chip cookies & just add the chopped up Andies mints…..
    Any suggestions or warnings?

    Enjoy your blog!

    • Rachel — December 8th, 2014 @ 1:40 pm

      You can definitely substitute with all purpose, but keep in mind that it will change the overall texture of the cookies. Combining cake flour and bread flour in cookies helps to give a soft cookie with a slightly crisp exterior. It’s hard to get that perfect texture with just all purpose flour.

    These cookies look fantastic. I love anything mint and chocolate. If you like spy type of shows Chuck is pretty good. It’s more of a comedy but has great spy stuff too :)

      Thanks so much! I’ll have to remember to check that out. I vaguely remember it but never really got into it.

    It all depends on the show, Some i had hoard and binge on them and some i live for each episode.

    These cookies though i would eat in one go, no saving any for later. They look delicious.
