"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The story behind these cookies is a woman was shopping at Neiman-Marcus one day. She decided to take a break and got herself a cup of coffee and a chocolate chip cookie. She loved the cookie so much she asked for the recipe. They told her they charge 250 for it. She said fine (thinking it was $2.50), put it on my charge. When she received her bill for $ 250.00, she was extremely upset and called the store to complain. They said she had agreed to the $250.00 and that is what they charge for the recipe. She figured she couldn't do anything about the bill but she would try and give the recipe out to as many people as she could to make it worth $250.
