Cookie Recipe Review and Giveaway Winner


Yesterday my friend's two children came over for the day because she is out of town and her husband needed to work.  We had quite a fun-filled day!  Since Juli was occupied and playing, and Nico was just happy to crawl around among the big kids, I found myself with some time to bake!  I made whole wheat chocolate chip cookies from Suburban farmergirl's recipe.  Mine weren't organic though.

When I first read through the recipe, I was a little unsure about it.  No butter.  A full cup of oil.  No baking powder.  But I thought I'd give it a try anyway, because the picture just looks yummy!

Turns out, I didn't have quite enough oil, so my dough was a bit drier than it should have been.  Consequently, the cookies didn't spread as much as Jen's did.

But they were absolutely delicious!  I LOVE these cookies.  Even better, the kids all loved them!  Juliana's face and hands were covered with chocolate when she finished hers, and the other kids liked them too.  I will definitely be making these cookies again.


In the above picture, the kids are watching a movie and having a snack while sitting in Juli's princess tent.  They were so good.  For half the day, they insisted on being called different names.  "Joel", "Barbara", and "Alison".  Though little Barbara kept forgetting and called Juli "Alex", much to Joel's annoyance.


I made three colours of koolaid playdoh for the kids, and sent some home with the kids.  They had fun with it.
