Mom’s Home Baked Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

I realize today is Film Friday, however for Wine Wednesday I just posted a bunch of clips and then yesterday I epically failed at posting thanks to a bottle of wine and a gorgeous friend (who you can visit by clicking here). So, if I went ahead with Film Friday it would just be too many films in a row. So, let’s say fuck it, have a little movement, and do this instead…Bribing. There’s nothing to be ashamed of when offering or accepting a bribe. Especially when they’re cookies….

…(10 minutes later)… I’m having a difficult time focusing right now…. (another 5)… Chopped is on the Food Network right now. Have you seen that show? It’s efing awesome! I keep trying to ignore it but it’s impossible. It’s fascinating. And at the same time and for the same reason, I can’t turn it off. Ahhhhh!!!!
Right! Cookies! Bribing! Focus! Or, as the tri-nippled psychic in Mallrats says, “fuckus”…
Do you ever have those moments in life (particularly at work) when you just aren’t sure how you’re gonna make it through the day? I had one of those not long ago. I honestly couldn’t even fathom how I could go on living another 4 hours serving food and beverages to barely 19 year old, self entitled, pains in my ass. I’m sure we all have these moments. This was mine. I seriously thought I was gonna explode and congeal on the floor of the pub as a mess of anger, frustration, and just general unhappiness. Aye. So, I offered a batchful of joy to a co-worker/fellow server in exchange for my freedom…
…If he stayed an extra hour and a half and let me go home early, he’d have cookies next time we met. After teasing me a bit, he acquiesced. And I didn’t turn into a pile of unhappy mush.

And now, I’m spreading the love and happiness further – to you! I grew up on these cookies. They are the very definition of my childhood. In fact, I distinctly remember raiding this jar until they were gone: 
It would do you well to make these classic chocolate chip cookies. As soon as possible. And then give most of them away as soon as they’re cool – or you may be in trouble…

    […] So, I’m participating in the Christmas Cookie Recipe Swap over at White Lights on Wednesday, I Love My Disorganized Life, and Real Housemoms.  I got paired with the awesome, somewhat intimidating foodie Kristy at Gastronomical Sovereignty (See what I mean about intimidating. That’s a serious foodie there folks!) So we chatted for a week before exchanging our recipes -both of which have been shared today, my sugar cookie recipe and her mom’s home baked chocolate chip cookies. […]
