"...In the dance of sun and water and sky. In the faces of the people who need us most and of the people we most need. In the smell of breakfast cooking on a charcoal fire. Who knows where we will find Him or whether we will recognize Him if we do? Who knows anything even approaching the truth of who He really was? But my prayer is that we will all of us find Him somewhere, somehow, and that He will give us something of his life to fill our emptiness, something of his light to drive back our dark"

Go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe

 My fave chocolate chip recipe.  The key is to make 'em with real butter (as opposed to margarine) and use the good vanilla from Mexico.  So easy to make and sooo good!

These ones I rolled out for Valentines day cookies but usually I just make them as a drop cookie.

Cream together:
1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar

Add the following the creamed mixture and mix:
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

Combine the following 3 ingredients in a separate bowl:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

Add flour mixture to creamed mixture and mix until incorporated

Fold in 2 cups chocolate chips

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes
