out of hibernation

I can't believe that it has been almost a month since my last post. I guess my littlest one turning four really knocked me for a loop ;) I have been mulling over Christmas gifts and trying to get the motivation to start making them, since that is what I have done the past two years. I just haven't felt the inspiration that I normally do. But I think these cookies may have done the trick. I mean, they got me to come out of my blogging hibernation, right? I recently received the cookbook, Sticky, Chewy, Messy, Gooey Treats for Kids, and I made my first treat from it, the Hunka Chunka Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were a hit (with adults, too). Michael even said they were the best cookies I had ever baked. And I must say that I love how they are crisp around the edges and soft and yummy in the middle. I look forward to making some more treats soon, like the Sun Butter Blossoms and the Chock-a-Block Chocolate Chip Gingerbread Muffins (they all have such great names!). The book itself is adorable as well, with beautiful colors and pages with scalloped edges. OK, I'm off to the kitchen to make crock-pot mac-n-cheese (and perhaps take a nibble of a cookie while I'm in there.)
