until yesterday. yesterday, i made a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies. i followed the recipe exactly. except i added a little bit of nutmeg to the cinnamon.
they came out of the oven. they looked a little cakey, which has been my problem. i waited a few minutes while i put the next batch in. i came back to them. they looked like oatmeal cookies. exactly like them. all flat and oaty and raisiny. oh. my. goodness. i did it. and then i ate one. still warm, it was amazing. i brought one over to eric, a big grin on my face. he took a bite. and then another. then the cookie was gone. he hugged me. i jumped up and down.
who knew cookies were such a big deal?
