I love chocolate chip cookies. (I haven't heard them called Toll House cookies for a long time.)

Forever, I have tried to duplicate those soft nonpackaged chocolate chip cookies one finds at a store that sells them. Mine always come out hard. 

Well, I've just copied another recipe to try today. I'll let you know the results. If you have "the secret", please tell me!

My children share me throughout the year; winters will be in Littleton, CO, which is about 1,000 higher than Denver. Cooking at this altitude proves to be a skill that I do not yet have. Anyone have an easy solution, i.e., soft and hard-boiled eggs?

Thanks, Randy. I have two more sweet potatoes that I haven't cut or cooked yet. It must be an art form as well as a science to cut 2mm slices.

Joan, it's nice to see someone else making sweet potato chips. I roll thin (2mm) slices in olive oil and salt, lay them flat on a cookie sheet, and stick them in the oven to bake first, then on broil to crisp them up. Because I can't make the sizes perfect, some do burn. I've also tried nuking them, but the potato has to be a small one.

I haven't tried making the coconut-battered onion rings yet, but I made some sweet potato chips for Craig tonight, sweet potatoes are one of his favorite foods. It was very easy to burn them and had to keep a close eye on them. I cooked them on a non-stick grill pan with a light spray of oil.

Randy, how do you make your chips? What kind of oil do you use? How thick do you cut them? Do you bake them, or in a non-stick skillet, or fry them?

With so many sweet potatoes, I've been making chips. I like them, but there's a fine line between crispiness and burnt! Gotta watch them closely. I also made another sweet potato (with pecans) pie. Hope I don't turn orange!

With my Cornish game hen bone frame (very tiny), I made soup stock, adding veggies for the soup. Good stuff.

Cranberries are cranberries Randy, & dried are very good too.

I didn't eat anything special.

Patricia, I had dried cranberries in my oatmeal this morning. Does that count? I forgot, too.

Daniel, You were so thoughtful to think of Ning by having Chinese noodles!
