I hope 2013 was a good year for everyone and may this new year bring a much more fun filled life! In retrospect, 2013 was a productive year for SherpaniChef. We have posted about 95 posts so far, which is not too bad considering all the other things I’ve been trying to keep up with. A new year’s resolution for SherpaniChef is to write many more recipes and travel posts. We have a lot of travel plans for 2014 and we plan to post about them!
On a different note, we have been very busy lately that it hasn’t really felt like the holidays this year, so I decided to bake cookies and get into the holiday spirit. Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite cookies. They are very easy to bake and taste wonderful. If you are a novice baker, this is a must try recipe!
