I recently realised how much I like to cook and I decided to make an online collection of recipes I've collected and tried. These are all pretty easy, and I have made many of them while watching a toddler, or at least during nap time.

Cookies ( a twist on the toll house)

If you want to be an angel of goodness too, just make these for your guy friends.

1) if you give 6 plates of them to someone, they will be gone in under 48 hours

2) don't forget the salt and baking soda. they will taste REALLY strange

3) if you overcook them or let them sit out a week, they are still edible ('slong as they aren't black). simply put some in a bowl, pour some milk over, and after about 3 minutes, eat with a spoon.

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • about half a 4-serving package of instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 large eggs
  • mix-ins (2 recommendations below)


up to 2 cups of chocolate chips, with or without pecans
up to 1.5 cups white chocolate chips, 1-2 handfuls of craisins, and half a cup of chopped pecans. if you use a hand chopper, you can make the pecans very fine--I don't like the crunch of nuts, but they add a nice flavour

combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl

mix the butter, sugars, pudding, vanilla and egg(s) together (please tell me you have a kitchen aid! otherwise hello carpal tunnel)

add dry ingredients

stir in mix-ins

roll the cookies into teaspoon sized balls and place about an inch and a half apart on a baking stone or cookie sheet with parchment paper (easy cleanup)

bake at 350F for 12 min. Let cool on baking sheet/stone
bake 1-4 mins longer for crispy cookies
