If You Give a Mom a Cookie...

See these cookies?

Don't they look good?

Well, I thought they were. But no one else really did. So I ate most of them myself. I mean, I made them for myself, secretly, in the first place. But it's not usually my habit to eat a whole plate of cookies by myself. I'm blaming the high altitude and a new brand of flour. I'm going to tinker with the recipe to save you, dear reader, from making them and then being forced to eat the whole batch. Because you're frugal, right? You never throw away perfectly good food just because it's a little dense... and chewy... and overall off in the texture department....

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a great battle."
-Philo of Alexandria

P.S. If you're from Kansas, doesn't the view from that window make you feel a bit dizzy? I mean, when you're used to looking up and seeing things align in nearly perfect horizontal symmetry, the fact that a landscape can lean... fairly boggles the mind....
