National relaxation day has to be one of the best days of the year – giving you another great excuse to do absolutely nothing.
Life can be fast paced at times and we all need a day to unwind. Although a certain amount of stress is normal, stress can be overwhelming and too much of it can be extremely harmful to your physical and mental health.
One thing I would suggest you do on this day is to eat chocolate. Chocolate contains a mood-boosting chemical called Phenylethylamine (PEA), which is also produced in the brain when a person is in love. The hormones that are released can trigger feelings of euphoria and relaxation. Avoid all stressful activities today. Let your body heal, rest and relax.
Take care of yourself today. You deserve it – no matter what you choose to do.

Mastering chocolate chip cookies can be difficult as there are so many recipes available with all different techniques. This recipe however will be the last chocolate chip cookie recipe you will ever need. I never really gave much thought to chocolate chip cookies and periodically I would see recipes in books and on television which made subtle differences to taste or texture, then a few weeks ago, I was made aware of Sephra’s chocolate chip cookie recipe. I feel sad to push aside my grandmothers recipe, however I think that is only right that future generations can enjoy the very best recipe.
Blend two cups of butter, two cups of sugar and two cups of brown sugar together. Add four eggs and two table spoons of vanilla. Mix four cups of flour, five cups of ground oatmeal (measure before grinding), one table spoon of salt, two tablespoons of baking soda and two tablespoons of baking powder together. Slowly combine the dry ingredients into the butter, sugar and egg mixture. Blend with a mixer until moist. Fold in 680g of Sephra dark chocolate buttons, 226g of Sephra milk chocolate buttons and three cups or chopped walnuts (optional)
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. If you prefer them chewy so i usually take the cookies out when they look slightly underdone and shiny on top. Then once they cool they are chewy rather than crispy or crumbly.
