Christmas . . . that magic blanket that wraps itself about us. That something so intangible that it’s like a fragrance!

Most of you probably think I’ve disappeared from recipe earth, but I’ve put on my apron and I’m not taking it off until January! (well maybe to shower)

The other day, I was standing in line at the grocery store, patiently waiting my turn. Rows & rows of magazines are perfectly put under our noses to tempt us. I’m often pulled in by those with covers showing beautiful berry desserts, or warm cinnamon rolls dripping with icing. What happened to catch my eye, was found at the very top of the cover page. It said: WORLD’S BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE RECIPE INSIDE.
