One of the best things about residency so far is the people I work with. I am so lucky to be surrounded by my fellow new residents who are some of the nicest, smartest and hardest working people I have ever met. It’s an amazing thing to work side by side with someone for 80 hours per week and still want to make happy hour plans after work. In talking to residents in other fields, I know this isn’t always the case. I think working with kids selects for the best people!
Speaking of the best, I try not to throw around superlatives superfluously (har, har), but these are literally the best chocolate chip cookies I have every had. I first found the recipe on Sweet Paul, but they are actually by Kathleen King, owner of Tate’s Bakeshop. These cookies are so good that Kathleen actually has a whole online business dedicated to shipping them all over the United States!
These cookies freeze well, so I made an extra batch to keep on hand when unexpected friends or guests drop by. Nothing says ‘welcome home’ like a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie!
