So...what DID I do over the past few years, during the Pandemic, you may ask? Entertaining. Lots and Lots and LOTS of Entertaining. For roughly six months during 2020-21, every Sunday evening, a group of the same 3-6 of us, all very different in both personality and style. How did we all get along? Well, how does anyone? Shared Love - and a small collection of recipes that anyone (almost) will enjoy.
Here's one such recipe, which I made for our building/group meeting tonight (Above, and see the previous post - it's in that room). Just great ol' chocolate chip cookies (then the plates were dressed up with some treats from the nearby Asian market). The recipe is from a long beat-up booklet my mom gave me, correctly called "Cookies!" and it's edited by Marian Levine from The American Cooking Guild, 1989. it's one of maybe ten things I make for others that people request or get excited about. And, it's been nice to prepare these semi-fancy set-ups again, I gotta admit.
