My mother is known for her amazing recipes. I had one kid sign my yearbook in Jr. High, and I kid you not, this is exactly what he wrote…
“Nikki, tell your mom I am coming over to visit and can’t wait to see what she has cookin’!”
Pretty sure some people used me to get to my mom’s kitchen. If I wasn’t me, I probably would, too!
My mom is famous for her chocolate chip cookies… and I am about to share with you the secret recipe! Since I can remember, these cookies have been a staple in my home… and once someone received the recipe, it quickly became a staple in their home as well.
