Banana chocolate chip cookies

These should be called office breakroom cookies (even if they never actually made it there).

Let’s back up a bit. I may be incriminating myself here, but it must be said: I rip pages from magazines. Not at bookstores or libraries, but ones found at doctor’s offices, the gym, my office break room.

Does this make me a bad person? I’ve wondered. On the one hand, I do share my own old magazines. I make sure the magazine in question is out of date (yes, one month counts!) before I tear. And sometimes I think of myself as a liberator, rescuing the recipe from a lifetime of sitting fallow!

On the other hand, if it’s not a bad thing do to, why do I act like a spy when I do it?

So. Guilt aside, sometimes it must be done. Especially now that someone at my work has been doing some spring cleaning, and all these new Martha Stewart magazines keep appearing.

When I saw this recipe, my mouth started watering. I thought of what I had at home: everything but the banana. (Note: I could have bought one, but the recipe suggests the riper, the better. Plus, I get lazy.)

I texted a friend and neighbor, M. “Do you have a banana!” “Yes,” she replied immediately. She came over that night with a perfectly browned, mooshy specimen. “I got it from the fruit bowl at work,” she confessed.

How appropriate. Read the rest of this entry »
