Kim's Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies

Today is my Dad's birthday so I thought I'd share these today because he has always been a cookie monster and these are absolutely THE BEST EVER chocolate chip cookies you will ever eat.  I guarantee it, email me if I'm wrong because I have never been so sure of myself in my whole life. 

If you're not a fan of adding either oatmeal or coconut to your chocolate chip cookies, leave one out and double the other so you'd have 1 cup oatmeal and no coconut or vice versa.  If you're a real purist and don't want either in your cookie, leave them both out and reduce the butter to 1 cup.  

Kim's BEST EVER Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yield: 36 cookies Prep: 10 min Cook: 12-15 min Temp: 350F

1 1/4 cups butter or coconut oil, room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2/3 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup large flake oatmeal 
3 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350F.  With an electric mixer beat butter or coconut oil with brown sugar and white sugar until fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.  Add flour, baking soda, salt, coconut and oatmeal and mix until combined. Add chocolate chips and fold by hand until blended.  Drop batter by tablespoonfuls onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets and bake 350F for 12-15min.

 Happy Birthday Dad, you're the best ever, I'm coming over with cookies for you!

The recipe to make bread is exactly the same as making cinnamon buns, the only difference is that you split the dough in half and drop them directly into loaf pans to proof before baking. Coming up soon is a stuffed ham and cheese loaf/buns that's been fantastic for lunch, dinner and field suppers. It's an all-in-one sandwich that never disappoints.

Borscht can be made in so many different ways, there seems to be variations for all different cultures but it's a very basic soup that is so hearty and delicious.  This recipe comes from my father-in-law and he always makes it in the late summer and early fall with fresh veggies from his garden.
