Welcome

May you be happy, comfortable, and safe,
May your door be always open to friends,
May your kettle always be singing its welcome to you,
And to all whom you so dearly love.

Because I always misplace my recipe cards, I started this blog so I will have an extra copy of the things my family and I enjoy fixing. The pictures are all "in my head", so I don't use the camera to make the posts look fancy. Besides, it is just faster to write the recipes because I tend to be rather impatient while photos slowly load!

Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
2 1/4 cups flour
1 package chocolate chips

Cream brown sugar, white sugar and shortening. Beat in the eggs. Add vanilla. Sift in the flour, soda and salt. Mix. Add the chocolate chips. Drop spoonsful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes.

I've had this recipe for years and years. It came from my mom and I don't know where she got it. My paper copy is a mess, so thought I'd better add it to the blog.
