Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fall salad made with roasted kale and sweet potatoes (tosses with olive oil and roasted at 350, kale for just a few minutes, sweet potatoes for 30-40 minutes or until tender) with tomatoes and mushrooms.

Here's the recipe for the famous chocolate chip cookies I talk about in my memoir, taught to me by my dad. Enjoy!
