Tomorrow it is going to be Canada Day, which means we are all going to have a day off to celebrate this special day for Canadians. Normally my husband and I like to go to a park to watch the spectacular explosions of the fireworks. However, this year it is going to be a little different for us because my husband is traveling for work and I will be heading over to New York city tomorrow to visit one of my closest friends who just moved from Chicago to this wonderful place.
I am very excited because I’ve always dreamed to visit NY. Now it is a good time because I’ll be there with a great company who already knows the city well. I wish my husband could be with us but sometimes life doesn’t happen the way we expect. So, better than staying here alone for 2 weeks I am going to meet my childhood friend and visit for the first time this wonderful place.
We already planned lots of things to do. I hope we will have time to do everything on our list. But in case we are out of time we already decided our top 5 places to go because when you organized your day you save time and you are able to enjoy more the city.
I really would love to visit the American Museum of Natural History, the Central Park and the Empire State Building. I’ve been wishing to visit those three places for years. I am also really excited because I will be in USA for the July 4th. Everybody says it is a big celebration, so I can’t wait for this weekend.
Now let’s talk about the today recipe. I’ve never used hazelnut flour before, but I loved to bake with it because it provides a different twist on the usual almond flour cookies. It has more texture than the almond flour. The hazelnut gives these Chocolate Chunk Hazelnut Cookies a very rich, nutty flavor throughout the cookie. They are also smooth and gooey. On top of that, the big chocolate chunks throughout cookie makes the cookies soft in the center. I really hope you enjoy this recipe and give it a try.
