Folks, I've found it. What some people spend their entire lives searching for...well, I'm only 23, and I have found the golden recipe.
I used to solely advocate for the good 'ole Toll House chocolate chip cookie recipe. I then went through a phase of loving the softness of eggless chocolate chip cookies. Then I stepped up my game and took on the massive, bestselling Levain chocolate chip cookie recipe. Now, these are both fantastic recipes, and I thought they were the best. However, once I took one bite of this cookie dough, I knew I was at a whole other level.
Otherworldly, incomparable, and magical were some of the first describing words that exploded into my brain. WOW. Honestly, this cookie is as addicting as crack. I might argue actually that the dough is the best part, but I know there are some salmonella police out there that might shoot me down. If you too are searching for the best chocolate chip cookie, PLEASE, do not miss this recipe. And don't play frugal on the ingredients! The quality makes all the difference.

It has been absolutely far too long since I have posted a new recipe! This fantastic salad I made a couple weeks ago after a successful trip to the farmers market. Farmer's markets and really just markets in general are one of my favorite things to do, period. The smells, the sights, the tastes; my senses love being overwhelmed and farmer's markets are a definite place to make this happen.
At the market, I love looking for vegetables or fruits that I've never cooked with before. This time around I found a funky look vegetable called a kohlrabi, which kinda tastes like a cucumber and has a fantastic crunch like a radish. On my way out, a lovely vendor offered me some beet greens for free! And thus this salad was born. The fresh herbs make it pop with flavor and it's perfectly light for the summer heat.
