Once upon a time my mom told me about a bakery in NYC.

I've not been there, but I will. Someday.
They make really, really, really good cookies. And they are big. Not big like a pizza big, but big like thick, dense, chunky, and chewy and yummy. I like chewy cookies.
Lately I haven't felt like baking much. I think it's the heat.
But today was different. Scotty and I were standing in the kitchen wondering what to do with ourselves.
I decided to flip through my recipes and found one my mom sent me a few months ago: a recipe for Levain's peanut butter chocolate cookies. I had all of the ingredients and it seemed simple enough, so, I made 'em.
Nectar. Of. The. Gods.
They are that good.
My pals came over to watch "The Mask of Zorro" and I popped a plate of cookies on the counter. They indulged and l.o.v.e.d them.
P.S. This is my 300th post! Yay!
