Fall is one of my favorite times of year to hit the Downtown Cary Farmers Market on Saturday. It’s fun to let the market guide what I make that weekend. This past weekend I was craving Thai food, and as always, the market provided me with plenty of inspiration to make the laziest, tastiest Coconut Eggplant Soup over Jasmine Rice. Yum!

As a well-known treat, chocolate chip cookies allow for a infinite amount of refreshment, reinvention and refinement. With that, here are some places in and around Cary that are putting their stamp on the age-old treat!
One of the greatest things about Cary, and most surprising to me when I moved here from Southern California 10 years ago, is the prevalence of ethnic cuisine. When I arrived in NC, I was under the mistaken presumption that I would be awash in burger franchises, fried chicken done 1,000 different ways and maybe some chain pizza.
