... Did I mention it's raining? Whenever it rains in my part of California, I get homesick for Chicago. I guess it's because I miss the seasons (the change in weather dictating the season to come). When I get home sick I bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies and feel a little a better. Nothing screams home like a plate of cookies and an ice cold glass of milk! The cookies are for all the "transplants" who are homesick, there just like mom's! Enjoy!
The recipe I use is exactly like the one on the bag with two exceptions: 1) I add an extra 1/2 cup of flour, 2) an extra cup of chocolate chips.
