Hi! It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve been inspired to bake things, lots of things. mainly cookies (which, as you know are my all-time favorite)! Maybe I should apologize for the abundance of cookies I’m throwing your way this week, but I’m not really thaaaat sorry, it’s been so fun!
I spent the day yesterday at the mall (actually two malls!) with Hannah trying to find a dress for 8th grade formal. The sheer fact that our youngest daughter is old enough to be shopping for a formal dress sent me into the kitchen for cookies, lots of cookies. I baked away my mommy sadness, or tried to anyway.
I ended up baking three different recipes, including these chocolate chip cookies, which are a favorite of pretty much everyone in this house. These are my everyday chocolate chip cookies, the recipe is simple, I always have the ingredients, and I can make them in about 7 minutes (not including bake time). They’re soft and chewy with a crispy edge…my favorite!
And yes, they’ve been known to cure mommy guilt, mommy sadness, and the bad day blues – you’d better give them a try…you know, for your health and all. 🙂
