This chocolate chip cookies recipes is straight out of my culinary school, developed by professional chefs. It doesn’t get any better.
Phase I is almost over. I’m sad, nervous and excited all at once. I have so much love and respect for the chefs I’ve learned from these past three months… it’s a bittersweet transition. This weekend I’m studying for my midterm written and practical exams, which will take place next week. We’re also taking a field trip to a dairy farm. I know Phase II is going to be much more intense. Will there still be the same level of laughter and unity we’ve become accustomed to?
This is a bit of a rushed post, but I wanted to pass along an amazing cookie recipe while I hit the books (and the kitchen) in preparation for next week. Is there anyone out there who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies? These are far superior to anything you’ll buy at the grocery store. And they’re so simple! You probably already have most of the ingredients in your pantry. I daydream about these cookies. If you want the chocolate melting in your mouth with each bite, add chopped semi-sweet chocolate in addition to the chips. You’ll thank me later.
