    With your waistline, Cosmo, I doubt 7 dozen cookies is enough.

    Chocolate Banana Cookies

    1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    2/3 cup shortening (lard, or vegetable)
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    2 1/2 cups sifted flour
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1 cup mashed ripe bananas

    1.Preheat oven to 400 degrees
    2.Melt chocolate in top of double boiler over hot water. Remove from heat
    3.Cream shortening and sugar together in bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time; beat well after each addition,
    4.Sift flour, baking powder, salt, and soda together into separate bowl. Add flour mixture, cooled chocolate, and bananas to creamed mixture; blend well.
    5.Drop by teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes.

    Note from me.

    With that much heat, sugar and shortening, and the small size, I’d keep a close eye on them from the 7 minute mark. They’ll go from done to burnt in an instant.

    You are flat killin’ my diet, man ! You’re even worse than I am about posting recipes. And I do try yours… with a modicum of success to the detriment of my waistline.
    Keep up the good work.

    Also a poke at the numerous people who misspell “dessert” as “desert.”
    When they do, I ask, “Sahara or Mojave?”

    WHAT AISLE IS THE POLISH SAUSAGE ON?

    Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream ‘racism’ these days.

    A customer asked, “In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?”

    The clerk asks, “Are you Polish?”

    The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am. But let me ask you something.

    “If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?

    Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?

    Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?

    Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?

    Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"

    The clerk says, “No, I probably wouldn’t.”

    The guy says, “Because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I’m Polish?”

    “The clerk replied, “Because you’re in Home Depot.”

    The islets of Langerhans are in the pancreas and produce insulin for metabolism of sugars!!!!

    Hmmm, I wonder if my daughter will make these if I post the recipe on the fridge. Worth a shot, these sound good.

    Cosmo should be on a desreted island with no other food source other than carrot sticks.

    Do you ever find a moment repeating itself?

    I laugh at people who write “bare” (ie get naked) with me instead of “bear” with me. I know bear also refers to the animal but it is the right way to spell that. =)
