First of all, I haven’t baked very much in my life. It’s an issue I’ve struggled with a bit because it seems to be a prerequisite for motherhood. Everyone expects that because a woman has given birth that she must know how to bake. I know this because every organization we join ask the moms to bake something.
So, I laughed when Joy said this in her post: “I have three children which means I have made exactly 14,897,209 batches of cookies in the last 20 years for lunches, brunches, school functions, midnight snacks and whatever else a cookie is needed for.”
I might be seeing my future!
So far, though, I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m just not THAT mom – the one who steadily churns out delectable goodie after goodie from her kitchen. I have other talents. Yup. Let’s seee…hmmm. 😕 Ah ha! I’m a very good cuddler.
Now, I could just keep on my merry way and continue to purchase the baked goods that I need in order to fullfill my duty as a mom but as it happens my children love to bake. And because I’m determined not to pass on my silly little phobias to them, I guess that means I’m baking. Correction…we’re baking.
When I saw the recipe for Macadamia Nut Cookies on Joy’s blog I decided to give them a go because I love me some Macadamia cookies. I almost didn’t post the photo because they don’t look as nice as Joy’s (yes, I have issues – I’ve never denied it) but here they are…
And they taste yummy. According to my daughter, “they’re the tastiest cookies I’ve ever aten“.
If you’d like the recipe,too, you can just head on over to Joy’s blog.
