Since Saturday is baking day, I decided to spend a little time in the kitchen today. Unlike the bluebirds I'm not baking a cake. Instead I am baking cookies ... oatmeal cookies to be exact.
We like our oatmeal cookies with dark chocolate bits, dried cherries and toasted pecans. Do you toast your pecans? I do if I have the time as I think it really does intensify the flavor.
Now that our nest is empty, I no longer buy packaged cookies.
If we get a hankering for cookies, I make them. This way we don't eat them as often if they're not sitting in the pantry all the time and to be honest I really don't think the taste of a store bought can compare to fresh from the oven homemade cookies.
That smell in the air as they bake ...
Can't get that from the package ;-).
My husband is out running errands.
I'm trying to hold off tasting them until he gets home.
Geez, how long does it take to get the oil changed????
Happy Saturday to you.
