I bake potatoes and chicken quite often and I've never failed in any attempt. Cookies is something that I keep on trying since many months even after many disastrous results. I bookmark all cookies recipes and got really confused what to try and what to leave. I don't have any issues adding egg; but do not know when should I stop beating. So I had to go for other choices. Also, I confuse with the gram and cup measurements. I watch many food network shows; they make cookies so easily and after many attempts with trial and errors, I am quite successful, they are near perfect in shape and size but absolutely delicious.
Happy New Year to all of you.. Lets give a warm welcome to 2014.. :)
