To make Food Network’s Simple Chocolate Chip Cookies, blend 2 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and a pinch of salt. Mix together 12 tablespoons of softened butter, 3/4 cup of light brown sugar, 2/3 cup of granulated sugar, 2 large eggs and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stir in the at least 12 ounces of chocolate chips. Use a tablespoon to scoop 12 dough balls onto a baking sheet, and bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
For a Maple-Glazed Salmon that pairs well with steamed vegetables, bake 6 ounces of salmon at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Drizzle with olive oil on both sides, and sprinkle with pinches of pepper and salt to taste. Make the glaze by bringing 3/4 cup of vinegar, 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard, a clove of smashed garlic and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to a simmer in a small saucepan. Stir until the glaze is thick and bubbling, then pour generously over the salmon.
