Your lifestyle, your quirk
Senses are so important when cooking. It’s like when you walk down the street and smell something so extraordinary that it makes you hungry – it doesn’t matter if you’ve just eaten, you just have to eat whatever you’re smelling. Your sense of smell can also trigger a memory from the past, like the cumin your mother would put in her famous chili, or the sweet scent of bananas baking in your grandmother’s bread when you would visit her.
For me, it was always the sweet and savory scent of freshly baked peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chip cookies…YUM! The saltiness of the peanut butter, the sweetness of the chocolate chips and hearty creaminess of the oatmeal blend so well together, you just can’t stop at just one. I love to let them cool for just a bit and take a bite and the chocolate melts in my mouth.
This cookie is one of my guilty pleasures, and there’s no way I would share the last one with any of my children. A girl has to have her boundaries.
