My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

Uncle Tim's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe has become one of MY favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes too ;-)
Got this recipe from my cousin - check out her amazing food blog!

3 7/8 cups flour (4 cups minus 2 tablespoons)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans, optional

1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt – set aside.
3. In a large bowl, cream butter, sugars, and vanilla. Add the eggs, beating well until incorporated. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture – (dough will become very thick!).
4. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the chocolate chips and nuts until evenly distributed. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
5. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown on top. Cool on wire racks.
