A New Year in the Kitchen



Jackie's been in the kitchen and doing very well I must say. For the new year she's been tasked with making 4 recipes per month. She may choose savory or sweet and so far sweet has reigned. Here's a picture of her making cookies. Her first batch of cookies ever. She's made brownies before, but brownies aren't cookies.
The particular recipe she followed was handed down from my Grammie (my dad's mom). So there's no pudding or cake mix called for in it, I've worked to steer her from those quick recipes as there's not a lot of learning involved if all you need to do is dump oil and eggs in a pre-packaged powder mix.. back to the point this was the real deal! She did fabulous. When we realized we only had half a bag of chocolate chips she opted, by her own good judgement, for a half bag of peanut butter chips to go along with. Very impressive and with a delicious result!
