Chocolate Chip Cookies

By DK on May 08, 2008

I came to know about chocolate chip cookies way before my advent into US, during the times when I was still naive to the world other than mine which comprised of just my house, our whole family and friends. But I have always been curious about other places and countless hours have been spent in the libraries gaping at pic all over the world.


The famous sitcom "Friends"(thanks to star plus channel) introduced me to an American'ised lifestyle. There was this particular show in Friends which made me laugh so uncontrollably, that I got a good 45min of sound advise from my mother for not behaving 'womanly' and laughing out so loudly (!!!). "What will people say?" was her berating query! Anyways coming back to Friends - I relate a lot with the character Monica - I am a neatness freak, I luv cooking and I am organized like hell ( but I am not sure if I am that organized like her!)

This particular show was based on character Phoebe's Grandma's Chocolate Chip Cookie and from it , I sure got to know about what cookies were all about. I remember discussing the same with my mom but never ever did I imagine that one day, I will be here in this country and make cookies! Needless to say Chocolate chip cookies were my first cookies I ever made. This show was my inspiration to making the American Classic.

    DK, both friends and chocolate chip cookies are my all time favorite too. I did not know about friends when I was in Chennai. After coming to US, my husband introduced me to this wonderful sitcom. He too was a huge fan and he had DVDs and after watching them I too became a fan, and would wait for the DVDs to be released for the other seasons.

    Lovely cookies. They look perfect.
