Chewy chocolate chip cookies
About this Cook
I'm a spunky young preschool teacher and graphic designer who loves eating well. I love to cook and entertain!
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Saltimbocca, Cuban Pork Tenderloin with Soffrito Rice, Chicken Cutlets, Jambalaya, Red Beans & Rice, Split Pea Soup, Snickerdoodles, Christmas Cookies, Brownies
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm from the Gulf Coast, where food played a big role in my life. I grew up eating bowls of Mardi Gras gumbo, chicken n dumplins, fried shrimp po'boys, red beans & rice, fried chicken, and biscuits. Mmmm mmm!
My cooking triumphs
-Snickerdoodles so good that my friend ate 72 in one sitting. Really. -This past Christmas, my mom basically said that I make better Christmas cookies than her. I don't think that's true but what a compliment! -Anything that makes my husband say, "This is the best thing you've ever made," which he says a lot. :-)
My cooking tragedies
Once I got the amounts in a recipe mixed up and used about 1/2 the flour needed and twice the sugar. Needless to say the cookies came out flat and completely inedible.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
I followed this recipe exactly as described, using Ghiradelli chocolate chips. Amazing and delicious!

Chicken Stock
Good, solid base. I added a few other herbs (some parsley, sage, and oregano), but still found the flavor to be a bit bland. It worked well in Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup; it's better than the boneless, skinless chicken breast broth that the first half of that recipe calls for.

Easy Granola Bars
This is a great recipe as-is, absolutely no adjustments needed. The oats/condensed milk/butter/coconut base is great for experimenting; I add all sorts of various dried fruits, nuts, and sweets. My favorite is cranberries, macadamia nuts, and white chocolate.
