Chocolate Chip Cookies

My friend Stefanie made these cookies for me last week and they were oh so delicious. The recipe I normally use, Mrs. Fields, calls for a whole pound of butter - which makes a truly delectable cookie, but that's a lot of butter - and butter is not cheap! So anyway, this recipe uses margarine, and it is fabulous! Enjoy!

It is Stefanie's mother-in-law, Nancy's recipe:

Soup's On!

It's not officially soup season yet, but I was craving this soup we made this summer when we were at the lake. It's super easy and of course, delicious.

Broccoli Cheese Chowder

Now, it does call for heavy cream, but you can substitute milk without any problem. And I add more potatoes to thicken it up a bit. Serve in a bread bowl or with French bread. Mmmmm!!!
