Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Recognize that placemat and napkin? Yes, this photo and the roasted tomato soup were taken on the same day — I admit! And here’s another secret: there’s nothing in that mug! It’s all for photography’s sake. Now that you have the inside info, here’s the open-secret: you can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes. You just can’t. I used to believe, ‘I have one recipe, I’m set.’ Don’t get me wrong, that can be true and I have one recipe I like to use pumpkin bread or any other food, but why by opposed to trying new and different ones?
