Salted Chocolate Potato Chip Cookies

Do you ever get the urge to just try something new and start over a bit?  Maybe it’s that I’m someone with perpetual itchy feet, but every couple of years, I want to change things up a bit – change the place I’m living, change the town I’m in, change what I’m working on.  Beardy Fiance and I have been living in London for about three years now – living in the same apartment in the same section of London.  I love the change to discover a new local restaurant, a new favourite baking shop, a new charity shop to find second hand cookbooks.  I want to start fresh with a new coat of paint, new cubbyholes and storage spaces.

We’re definitely stuck London-bound for the time being (and this is a great city – so much is happening all the time, as well as great museums and restaurants), but I think it may be time for us to find a new place in the city to explore.

What neighbourhoods do people love in London?

Since I’m feeling a bit edgy, I decided to turn these chocolate covered potato chips that I found at Trader Joes into a cookie.  That’s edgy, right?  Right.  Definitely.
