When I am bored I continuously find myself researching some of the greatest mysteries of our world. Are we really alone in this universe? If so, why haven't we discovered these mysterious creatures? What is the true purpose behind the creation of Stonehenge? How/when will the world come to an end (those sneaky Mayans and their practical jokes!)? How come we can never get a CLEAR picture of Big Foot? And my personal favorite: where can I find a recipe for the best chocolate chip cookies ever?

If you are anything like me, then you love baking and indulging in these tasty treats, or ahem, sneaking tidbits while the first batch is baking away. If this describes you, then you must also be on the constant lookout for the perfect chocolate chip cookies. Does the recipe come from the back of a popular brand of those delectable chocolate morsels? Or do you delve into your grandmother's trusty, handwritten cookbook for her "secret" recipe? Possibly you scour the internet, high and low, trying each and every recipe that has a photo attached to it, teasing your taste buds, promising you that chocolate-y goodness is easy to achieve. My secret in finding pure perfection, one heavenly bite at a time? Know your likes and dislikes, take the time to find out what really satisfies your sweet tooth. Try various recipes featuring chewy, crispy, gooey or cookies that have everything but the kitchen sink thrown in. What a tough task you have ahead of you! No really, I feel bad for you. The toughest task that has ever been handed to me was to top my mother-in-laws cookies and win over my husbands heart and stomach!

First you must master the 4 different types of chocolate chip cookies, as defined by me, a master taste tester in all things baked!
