Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

We found another cookie (in addition to frosted sugar cookies) that Steven really likes!!!Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour (1 1/2 cups in Florida)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Cream butters and sugars together. Mix in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Add chocolate chips. Pour into 9" square pan. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. (Or do drop cookies - bake for 9 minutes).

Broccoli Salad

Chinese-Style Broccoli Salad

2 heads broccoli, separated into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
1-2 tablespoons sesame oil
1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli; cook 1-2 minutes. Plunge into cold water and drain. Combine remaining ingredients. Pour over broccoli and toss. Serve warm or cold.
Note: As you can tell from the picture, I decided to add some sliced mushrooms.
