Double Chocolate Chip Caramel Pecan Cookie Recipe

I've lost this recipe several times, so I'm eternalizing it here. I can't claim to have created it, just to have popularized it.

Mix in separate bowls the following -

1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cube butter
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
**mix in mixer**
1 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips
1 cup nuts (recommend walnuts, pecans, or almonds)
1/2 - 3/4 cup caramel cubes cut up into quarters
**mix in mixer**
**Add dry ingredients, mix some more**
**spoon onto greased pan, bake @ 350 F for 10 minutes**

Too bad we live in Seattle...

Living in Seattle:
Pro - REI headquarters (thus the adorable vest)
Con - rains a lot (but everything is green)

No More Peas Please

I hate peas and I'm not afraid to show it.

But I can't get enough of that Jumperoo!  Dang, it's fun!

March 3, 2009: The Market Reaches Bottom

I hope I'm right, I hope I'm right! But I've gotta stick to my guns, after forecasting on October 10th that we would know when the bottom hit when the NYSE dropped to around 6800 (at the time it was at 8400). It may seem like all is hopeless right now, but I for one am a little optimistic that securities are now priced to buy.

Wow, maybe it's March 5th. Who knew GM and C would both essentially fail on the same day...
