I love this time of year. I had a wonderful Christmas, and I hope that everyone else had a great Christmas or holiday as well. 

I love baking cookies during the month of December to give a gifts and to share with family and friends. So needless to say I was once again excited to see that our monthly activity was with Nestle Toll House. Who doesn't like chocolate chips in their cookies?!? Crazy people that's who! Plus I had some awesome new recipes to try out this month. One of which has turned out to be my new favorite cookie recipe. I've made it at least 6 times this past month alone (three times of which were just for us). 

Anyway, I figured I would share my new favorite cookie recipe and a few pictures for my fellow foodies. Happy baking!! 

Also some more good recipes. :)

About Me
I am from deep south Louisiana and I am Cajun. Growing up in a huge family that loves to cook I have been helping in the kitchen since a toddler. I love cooking and have traveled around to get new recipes. I even lived in Mexico for 2 years and picked up authentic Mexican recipes. I love baking and southern dishes. I excel in homemade pies and southern classics. I am always trying new recipes and something new. My motto is you should always try something twice because nothing ever tastes exactly the same.
My favorite things to cook
I love and I mean LOVE pies. I have a few people addicted to my Lemon Meringue and No bake cherry cheesecake pies. I am constently baking and making desert. I also love to cook southern dishes and simple, easy and tasty things for my kids.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Sunday after church my family would get together at my grandmothers house and cook a huge southern supper. Now with my grandmother too old and ill to cook and myself moved away, I love to cook almost every night for my family.
My cooking triumphs
It took me a couple of times to get my lemon meringue pie perfect.... but it was so worth it.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot eat something unless it is seasoned perfectly and I gave my mom a recipe and she under seasoned it. I felt I mislead her. Lol.
