Welcome!

Welcome to our food blog! We're a bunch of gals who like to share our recipes, our cooking successes (and failures!), and our ideas. What better way than in a blog?!

I'm excited to get this started!

I guess I'll start off with the Best Chocolate Chip Cookie. I've tried who knows how many recipes for chocolate chip cookies. They're all good, but these are my family's favorite. We're all about soft cookies at our house & these fit the bill! No crunchy cookies for us :)

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie
from The Cook's Bible
  • ¼ cup Crisco
  • ½ cup Unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup Brown sugar
  • ½ cup White sugar
  • 1 Whole egg
  • 1 Egg white
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. Baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. Salt
  • 10 oz. Chocolate chips

    1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Beat Crisco and butter until smooth.
    2. Add sugars and beat until well blended.
    3. Add egg, egg white, and vanilla and beat until smooth.
    4. Add flour, baking powder, and salt to batter and mix until combined.
    5. Add chocolate chips and fold in.
    6. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; shape 2 Tablespoons of dough into a ball and place on sheet with 1 ½ inches between each cookie.
    7. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until tops are well browned.

  5. I made these cookies on Sunday. Delicious! This recipe is a keeper. Although, we ate most of the dough before actually getting to the baking part. Better double the recipe next time!
