#Recipe: PJ’s Chocolate Chip Cookies

My mom wasn't the best cook. In fact, sometimes she was downright awful at it. The weekly Hamburger Refrigerator Soup for Friday dinner was one of her favorites. Yeeeuck!

How is it that we haven't even put a dent in the Halloween candy, and the Christmas decor is in full swing at every local store?! Discount Halloween costumes next to Santa hats!
