About this Cook
He does breakfast/lunch and I do dinner -- so I'd say we've got things covered! We are a young couple with old souls, raising our hilarious and amazing baby girl. I an a stay-at-home-mom desperately trying to make it look like June Cleaver lives here!
My favorite things to cook
Simple stuff. I have a quick & easy cookbook that is by my side every time I'm trying to decide on a meal. But we like to eat baked salmon, shrimp scampi, hamburgers... and cookies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday night dinners, barbecues in the summer, and always sitting down as a family for a meal -- even if it meant waiting for Dad to get up and join us (he worked nights), we'd let things cool off a little bit just for the opportunity to eat as a family.
My cooking triumphs
Still working on that one! My husband would say everything I cook is a triumph. My hamburgers are a big hit with our friends and family, and I usually do cookies as a Christmas present for each of our family members.
My cooking tragedies
Far too many to list. Dinosaur footprint sandwiches, anyone?!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
I did as another rater suggested: skipped dissolving baking soda in water and increased the vanilla to 1 tablespoon, and changed the sugar to 1/2 cup white and 1.5 cups brown. Baked for 12 minutes at 350 and OMG they taste like they came from a bakery! I have never made better cookies. I do not own a mixer and therefore make everything by hand, so this recipe seemed daunting at first... but with a little elbow grease, it was a snap.

Robin's Peanut Butter Cookies
I love how fast and simple this recipe is. I already had everything on hand. I baked on the top rack for 8 minutes and they turned out beautiful, nice and moist but slightly crispy around the edges. I do agree that it would be tough to get 5 dozen cookies out of this! With my "walnut-sized" balls of dough I got cookies that were about 3.5" in diameter and that gave me about 28 cookies (I counted AFTER my husband began taste-testing, so that's an approximation!).
