I have always loved going to weddings. Weddings are such a happy time because everyone is celebrating love. However, throughout the years, I have liked weddings for different reasons.

The Chewy Revisited

A couple years ago, I decided to try and make Alton Brown’s version of the classic Nestle Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie and decided that this is my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe (as you might have seen here). The only thing I changed was the size of the cookie. I didn’t have the same size scooper as Alton Brown used in the recipe, so I just used the one I had on hand.
