Smells Good

Fresh cookies are in the oven :-)

This is a mess I don't mind cleaning up so much. 

What's your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe? My all-time favorite is Nestle Toll House. I know the recipe by heart and have been using it since I was a little girl.

What's that I smell? 

My cookies are done!

Well, that fabulous smell makes me cry. I am a total "Proust" fan, and his unforgettable essay on Madelines rings with me. To remember my mother by way of a scent such as Toll House cookies or vanilla rice pudding brings her back to me, via this miraculous thing called memory.

Eat it up Jess. Never forget where you were, who was with you when you did this very ordinary but important thing. Anita

The undeniable charismatic aroma of a chocolate biscuit...
Drat! I mentioned it to ex-RAF flyboy, nicknamed Cookie Monster in this case...Any leftover Jess you can share?!

I LOVE cookies, and chocolate chip are my ole' time favorite. It's a "revert to childhood" thing for me, as they were the first cookies I ever baked. I absolutely love your b&w pics-just great!

The smell of baking is so evocative. When I was a child I used to stay over at a friends house. Her Mum baked her own bread every night and I used to drift off to sleep with that wonderful aroma xx

Dearest Sheri,

THANK YOU always, for your visits, your kind words and most of all, YOU.

Wasn't that last picture of the dog and girl just sweet? Yes, we are all waiting to be complete, to be drenched in perfect love. But for the time being, and as we do experience love, we still long for what's around the corner, the new idea, the new possibility. Enjoy waiting my dear and make it happen. LOVE! Anita

Toll House for me too! And they are my husband's favorite cookie. But I only make them twice a year because we eat every single one of them.

Just between us? And don't go running tell your mother ;)...
I've never baked cookies in my life.
I've eaten - a few ;) ahahah - but never put my hand on it.
It overwhelms me. Probably because I enjoy them so much - aham, the few I had ;) - I always think they take more magic than I have on me ahaahah
Probably the best... I really don't want to explain the kids what's that smell after the proofs disapear before their arrival ahahahah
You seem to be in your cookie-heaven though. Enjoy!
