National Chocolate Day


Just about everyone loves chocolate chip cookies! Is it the cookie? Or the chocolate? That answer depends on who you ask. But who was the genius who thought up the delicious combination in the first place? Evidence points to Ruth Wakefield, a chef who started a restaurant and invented this beloved dessert. How the Cookie Crumbled isn't so much the story of Ruth's life, although that is part of it. It is really the biography of one nearly perfect cookie!
