Call Me Mrs. Fields? Famous Amos?

Since I’ve been working from home, I have a bit more time to do some happy homemaker type of stuff – including baking. I love to bake – love making cookies, brownies, and just treats, in general. In fact, I think I’m pretty good at it (I know, I know, I shouldn’t break my arm patting myself on the back!).

Last week, on two separate occasions, I made treats for my hubby to take to his office. Thursday, he got to take chocolate chip cookie bars (I was too lazy to scoop out individual cookies, so I just spread them in the pan like brownies). On Friday, he got double treats: double peanut butter brownies and chocolate peanut butter chip cookies (The Princess and I got flu shots on Thursday so we treated ourselves afterwards by baking treats – and licking the bowls!). Both days, he came home with rave reviews from his co-workers, and to be honest, I just love getting those kinds of compliments.

Saturday, the Princess and I baked more cookies for our neighbors (had to get the rest of the peanut butter chips out of the house before I ate ’em all!), and my neighbor two doors down asked where I bought them! She said they were as good as mall cookies, and like the big goober that I am, I’ve been riding high on that compliment all week.

Sooooo… tomorrow is Hubby’s last day at his job, so he got a request from a coworker that I bake for them “one last time”. He’ll be taking in chocolate candy crunch cookies (basically a variation on my classic chocolate cookie – only with cut up bits of Butterfinger or Baby Ruth) and pecan caramel sticky buns.

I am so June Cleaver right now, it makes me want to be sick at myself… But I’m having too much fun!

  1. You’re so funny! And a great Mom – what fun you guys have baking… The boys aren’t in to it too much, but Jack does like to “watch” with his little stool pushed up against the counter! Have a good one!
