When we go grocery shopping, Jason always tries to buy cookies. Usually, I tell him no and he puts them back. Of course, then I bake him cookies as it’s cheaper, they taste better, and they tend to have less sugar so I can enjoy them too.
In our Halloween card, my maternal grandma included $5, saying to use the money to buy Jason cookies. Apparently, she was very offended on Jason’s behalf that I didn’t indulge his cookie-buying whim.
Grandma, here are some cookies I made for Jason. He is not deprived of delicious cookies.
I love pie and pumpkin pie is by far my favorite pie. One of my favorite things about the holiday season is pumpkin pie. (Even though all ingredients are available all year around, no one has heard my protest to make pumpkin pie a yearly pie.) Delicious pumpkin pie.
These were probably some of the best cookies that I’ve ever made. I was very happy with them, and I think I’m figuring out what levels of cinnamon I can eat. (I have a slight allergy.) These were so yummy that I ended up making another batch the following week.
Unfortunately, this dish didn’t come out as well as I thought it would. It was way too salty. Next time, I’d cut the salt completely from the dish. I’m also not so sure how I feel about really meat-intensive dishes, even if it was fake meat.
Also for Jason’s birthday, I broke down and made a cake. I almost ended up not making it when I knocked my mixer’s large glass bowl off the counter and it crashed on the floor, breaking into a thousand pieces. I guess it was better that I didn’t have anything in the mixer yet…
This cake came out really well. It’s very moist and delicious. The original recipe is from Favorite Brand Name’s Cake Mix.
