Yesterday I tried to find a dessert that my picky brother would like (he wont eat fruit), and I came upon this recipe in a cookbook:

Chewy Chocolate cookies

1¼ cup softened butter

2 cups sugar

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

Powdered sugar

Set oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl, add eggs and vanilla. Beat well. Combine flour, cocoa, and baking soda in another bowl. Gradually mix into creamed mixture. Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Wait for cookies too cool for a minute. Transfer cookies onto waxed paper.

The cookies turned out to be a huge success! I would definitely make these again.Cole's Cookies

3 days ago, I learned how to make enchiladas. Here is the recipe:

6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

1 tablespoon butter

1 chopped onion

2 cups bell peppers, any kind

8 ounces grated cheddar cheese

4 ounces diced green chilies

1 cup green Chile salsa

½ cup cilantro

4 teaspoons ground cumin

15-18 flour tortillas

10 ounces grated Monterey jack cheese

1 cup whipping cream

½ cup chicken broth

Place chicken in rabidly boiling water, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, cool, and shred chicken. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook onion and peppers until soft. Transfer to a large bowl. Add chicken, cheddar cheese, salsa, cumin, and cilantro. If desired, add some salt and pepper. Mix well

Grease10x15x2 inch baking pan, or 2 smaller pans. Place flout tortilla on flat surface And place some of the chicken mixture on it about 1/3 of the way in. roll up from filling side, place in prepared pan, seam side down. Continue until all of the mixture is used. Sprinkle Monterey jack cheese over enchiladas.

Combine cream and chicken broth and pour over enchiladas cover pan with foil and cook for 30 minutes. Remove foil and continue baking for 10 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove and serve.

About a week ago, I learned how to make omelets for breakfast. This is the recipe I learned:

2 eggs

Enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan

1 tablespoon milk or half and half

1/3 cup cheese (may vary to chef’s liking)

Optional:

Vegetables

Some meats

A pinch of salt and/or pepper

Set a burner to medium high and put a good sized pan on it, the bottom will be the size of the omelet. Pour the oil in and move it so it covers the bottom of the pan. Crack the eggs into a mixing bowl. Beat the eggs so that the mixture is yellow. Add milk and mix them together. Sautee the vegetables and cook the meats, if they aren’t already.

Once the oil starts disappearing, pour the mixture into the pan and let it cook until you are able to lift up the sizes of the omelet fairly easily. Put the cheese and what else you want on one half of the omelet. Flip the other half onto the half with the cheese so that it lines up close to the other half. Let it cook for 30 seconds then flip it. After another 30 seconds, slide it out onto a plate. Tada, there’s an omelet.

The hardest part for me is waiting for the right amount of time to put the cheese and filling onto the omelet.
