I feel like this post should be summed up with my chocolate chip cookie recipe, which is always my fall back whenever someone does me a favor. ("Please? I'll make you cookies. Ok thanks!")
Chocolate Chip Cookies
Preheat oven to 375
1 cup (2 cubes) softened butter (not totally melted though, it does weird things)
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
3 cups loosely packed flour
2 1/2 cups / a bag / however many you want of chocolate chips
Mix the butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla. Stir in the eggs. Then add the baking soda, salt, and flour. The dough should be soft and all hold together, but not stick to your (clean) finger if you touch it. Stir in the chocolate chips and bake for like 9-10 minutes at 375.
When I was at school, I would probably only bake half of the dough and the rest would be eaten, by my roommates, with spoons. I personally prefer cookie over dough, but whatev.
Oh- and tonight I used a combo of muenster and cheddar cheese when making grilled cheese, with just a dab of pesto- delish. Did I copy Zupas? Yes. Was it really good? Also yes.
