Cast your vote for chocolate chip cookies

Generally, as we get older, females and males tend to learn more about cooking and preparing meals. The meals could be anything from spaghetti and meatballs to shrimp and rice. As we know with any meal there has to be some sort of dessert especially if there are kids involved. One dessert that comes to my mind is chocolate chip cookies. Everyone loves chocolate chip cookies except if you are allergic or simply just don't eat chocolate then I guess I was wrong and should start over. Almost everyone loves chocolate chips cookies. They are sweet and soft cookies filled with delicious semi-sweet chocolate chips. Mmmm Mmm Mmm just simply amazing. Likewise, I find it important that everyone should know a simple recipe on how to make these delicious chocolate chip cookies. Besides, food tastes much better when it is homemade instead of pre packaged and frozen. So, I think its time to whip out that bowl and those tasty chocolate chips and lets get cooking!

      This is my favorite cookie by far, so thank you for the recipe. I see most of your hubs are in this style. You should do well over time writing these informative hubs. I suspect your earnings will beat mine in time; you have a style that lends itself well to HubPages.
