Baking Day!!

I have not done much baking since moving into Waldo over a year ago. I love baking (despise cooking) but there is not a whole lot of kitchen space, so it makes doing anything with food somewhat challenging. Lately, though, I have really been wanting to make some tasty treats. So today, the kids and I did just that. We had a fun math lesson while we were at it, and then rewarded our taste buds with some oh-so-yummy melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip cookies.

With a tiny oven, it took us quite a while to get them all baked, but it was more than worth it.

Rob likes to laugh at me because my cookies turn out different every time I make them, (something about not following the recipe…) but today, with the kids all gathered around, I figured I better teach them right and follow the recipe. Amazingly enough, the cookies turned out the way I think they are supposed to!

As I usually do when treats are involved, I ate way too many. Now I get to take my miserably full self to work. But first, I need to tackle the kitchen…

Do you want to know the coolest thing? I lit the oven! Me!! All by myself! I feel like such a big girl. Normally I wait for Rob to do it, playing with matches and propane is not high on my list of things to do, but I didn’t feel like waiting today, so I did it!!

Rob will be quite surprised to find homemade cookies on the counter when he arrives home. That is if there are any left…

  1. Yummy looking cookies! I’m going to make your homemade granola for a bake sale at a November bazaar. I’m going to triple the batch so I have plenty for bags to sell. I might even have enough to take for our trip to Hawaii, since it’s before the bazaar. Gonna need some snacks!

  2. Yea for baking in an RV! Sometimes I bake something and it comes out perfect… other times the bottom is burnt… I’ve finally figured out moving the pan around helps and I’ve got a stone that sits on top of the shelf above the burner and that seems to even out the heat. Your cookies look perfect and yummy!

    • RV baking is somewhat challenging! The stone sounds like a great idea for evening out the heat. Luckily our cookies didn’t burn on the bottom, I would have been a little sad if they had!
