Anyone up for a food challenge?

I've been reading food blogs lately and enjoying both their astounding recipes and mostly their photos of such recipes. I am of a more "simple" food mindset than gourmet but like the idea of collecting recipes from fellow bloggers.

So, anyone up for creating a batch of chocolate chip cookies and posting both the recipe and some photos on their blog?

My inspiration is that Jeff and Darsie LOVE chocolate chip cookies. I'm not too fond of the recipe on the bag of chips and my newest recipe is ok (although Jeff and my family rave about it). I'd love to see other recipes.

ADDED - even if you bake from the back of the bag, do share! It is amazing how different the same recipe can turn out when baked by different people in different environments.

Anyone game? How about a deadline of by the end of June? That gives us all PLENTY of time!

Just four ingredients!

I love this idea! But I use the bag recipe, too, so I have nothing good to contribute.

I will play. Do we have to do them now, or will you be gathering them on a specific day?

Until the end of June!

Hi there! I found your blog via Swistle and couldn't resist joining in on the cookie challenge. I admit that I cheated, because I didn't specifically make a batch of cookies and then post that picture, but there are lots of cookie pictures with the recipe and extra tips. Although the cookies I make now look better than the ones on the photos, but oh well. And don't miss out on the link to an old post of mine where I baked cookies with two guy friends of mine. Looking forward to the other cookie posts! Great idea!

Hello, Shannon! I found your blog via The Continuing Adventures of Superpreemie. I also live in the Seattle area, and I've got a 31-weeker.

My cookies weren't anything special, but I blogged about them here:
