Aka: Cory's mom's chocolate chip cookie recipe
4 sticks butter softened
2&1/4 C packed brown sugar
1&3/4 C white sugar
6 C flour
1&1/2 tsp salt
1&1/2 tsp baking soda
1-1&1/2 bags of chocolate chips
Cream butter on high for several minutes, add sugars. Beat until fluffy. Add eggs. Beat on high for several minutes. Add dry ingredients, vanilla and chocolate chips.
Bake at 350 for 8-12 minutes depending on your oven.
*I found 8 minutes was perfect for my cookie preference. Soft and flexible.
*They aren't thick cookies, they are pretty flat. The thick cookies of Brits never turn out when I make them.
** This makes a HUGE batch. I made 6 dozen batches out of half the dough. (Smaller cookies, but still. Huge recipe)

I have been making this recipe for a long time now. I love trying different varieties of fries, but i always go back to these seasonings. They just make them crisp up so nicely!
4 Large Baking Potatoes
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
Cut all fries to be the same shape (buy the nifty tool that cuts them perfect for you) and toss in a bag with the olive oil. Mix all seasonings together in a small bowl and then toss with the potatoes. Align them on foil lined pans to where they are not touching and bake at 400 for 15 min. Flip them and bake for 15 more. I also should add that i like to put salt in that seasoning mixture as well.
Brittany has been holding out on us. Apparently she has been making this for a long time and has never forced us to make it. She has told me how good it is, but i never felt rushed to make it. I have been missing out! After i make this, i take the meat off the carcass and freeze whatever i have left that we arent using that night. I then make broth with the carcass. Don't ever throw the carcass out! I freeze the broth. It tastes so much better, and then you can control what is in it. I usually do a couple bags with two cups, and a couple with 3 cups. Anyway, make this chicken, and dont let the rock salt scare you away! Recipe came from Mels Kitchen Cafe
