It would be helpful for you to post the recipe you used.

Pull off a small amount of the dough, make an equal amount of dough without baking soda. Combine the two small doughs. Make cookies, see if it works and taste right.

Soda can be tricky. If you had made lets say a double batch you will actually use less baking soda or powder depnding on the recipe.

Try what chefLayne said. It should work.

i hate when this happens...
sometimes my cookies have too much of a baking soda taste to it...most can't notice it...but i do...
after it's out of the oven...i let it sit for a little while...and some of the baking soda taste dissapates...
if your mad at your SO try it out on them and see what they think...you may just have a very sensitive taste...

One option you can try is to mix in a small amount of vinegar. This will react with some of the baking soda. NOTE, hwoever, that this will thin your dough a bit. Also, don't use too much or they won't puff. If you are making drop cookies, just space them a bit more. The water will simply make the cookie a bit crunchier. But, if you are attempting to ball them up or do a sliced cookie, this will be a problem.
