Teriyaki Marinade

A delicious marinade for steak and other meats

Hope everyone is staying cool!  With the hot temperatures outside, we are definitely well into the summer season.  I think my favourite part of summer is being able to fire up the barbecue for meals to keep the heat out of the kitchen and also that barbecuing eliminates all those messy pots and pans.

By far, my husband's go to on the barbecue is a good steak.  He likes to marinade it all afternoon to give the steak flavour and to improve on it's tenderness.  As I would never remember to pick up a marinade when I was shopping and we are trying to get away from store bought items, it was time to come up with a marinade of our own.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

The ultimate soft and chewy chocolate chip cookie

The other day, before setting off for work, my husband asked if I could bake some cookies.  He specifically did request these Peanut Butter Cookies as they are his ultimate favourite, but I needed a chocolate fix, so I decided on Chocolate Chip Cookies instead.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe has made regular rotations through my kitchen for over 20 years.  I think I could make these in my sleep.
