I have been trying to bake more in the past few weeks, however,  I have am finding myself tied up with school still. Too much to study and too little time to do fun stuff. I actually hate the fact that I can’t spend more time in the kitchen. I really can’t wait to be done with school.

I love making cookies because they are quite quick to put together so when I have the urge to have something sweet that is what I turn to. The batter comes together quite quickly so it is the perfect dessert treat to make in a flash..

When making cookies I actually get my kids to help when ever possible. They love getting in the kitchen with me so there is not much convincing I have to do especially when I need help to make cookies.
