To Bake or Not to Bake



I never met a cookie I didn't like.  
~yours truly

It seems as if I haven't baked in ages. I've missed it but if I bake, I eat. and eat. and eat.  Oh bother!





Yesterday, I baked dozens of our favorite cookies: Aunt Selma's Oatmeal cookies. They are thin and delicate and delicious!

And I had good reasons to bake...

1.  To eat cookies
2.  To share cookies
   2a.  with a new friend
   2b.  with my daughter and son-in-law
   2c.  with relatives and visitors that come to the hospital to visit the new baby
3.  To enjoy making cookies

Do you enjoy baking?  What did you last bake?

  4. I also enjoy making cookies—and cakes, and bread. I really enjoy baking. :) Making cookies to share is the best reason to make them!

  5. I would say those are all great reasons to bake, I don't mind it at times to bake, the last thing I baked was yesterday for my girlfriend's birthday celebration, I made her some muffins :)
