Sometimes, in life, really great things are hiding in plain sight. You know what I mean? Like maybe you drive past the same little restaurant every day without really noticing it, but one day you decide to venture in, and boom, you just found your new favorite restaurant. Or maybe you see a blog button on tons of sidebars for a few weeks, and you finally decide to click on it, and boom, you’ve just discovered your new favorite blog.

Those little right-under-your-nose surprises in life are awesome.

Well, guess what? That’s how I discovered these cookies. I found the recipe on the back of a bag of peanut butter chips.

Then all of the sudden, boom, I just discovered one of my new go-to cookie recipes.

Moral of the story? Keep your eyes open for little things that you usually would gloss over. You just might surprise yourself with what you discover. Boom.
