Baking Redemption

Today was one of those non-stop days...literally! Between a doctor's appointment, running to multiple meetings, going to class, and meeting up with a friend for dinner I hardly had a quiet moment to myself to just breathe.

Oh, and today was also TB testing Part I. Fingers crossed that I pass! Is it strange that I watch as the nurse does the injection?

Needles...they're a beautiful thing!
Well, after yesterday's baking fail I knew I had to redeem myself, however I was feeling a severe lack of confidence. It was time to pull out a no-fail solution: Anne's Favourite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. Her sister put them together as bachelorette party favours and I've been itching to try them ever since!

Everything was set to go. All that needed to be added was butter, milk, vanilla, and an egg. I literally mixed them together, put them on the baking sheet, and took them out of the oven all within 20 minutes!

From the cookie dough I knew that they would be good (yes, I am a self-professing cookie dough's a fact of life) and when I offered them to my roommates my suspicions were confirmed! Perfect texture, perfect flavour, and perfect crunch from the walnuts. I literally do not know if I've had a better oatmeal chocolate chip cookie in my life!

I promise to hop back on the baking bandwagon in the very near future...but in the meantime hope has been fully restored in the cookie world :).


  1. WAIT!!! I have to get a TB test for my job. I've heard I have to get vials of blood out (I think someone was trying to scare me)...then I was told I can go to the CVS minute clinic where they may or may not just do a swab test. Please tell me there are no needles!

    Best cookie ever?!?! Is there a recipe for the mix part you can find?

  2. Ooooh....sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it's a needle :(. It's a subcutaneous (just beneath the skin) injection which means no blood withdrawal :).

    And I'll be sure to post the recipe soon!

  3. TB tests aren't bad at all, but it's always anxious waiting. Those cookies look way better than the last batch. I wish I could reach my hand through my computer screen and snag one.. haha.

  4. Haha...there are so many times where I wish I could do that!! They could be called cyber meals :P
