while i was busy doing the post about the 'ghan i was sending out instructions to michael in the kitchen who was making a batch of cookies (chocolate chip). he had never made them before and we needed a batch because we were going out of town for the day and school was going back the next day so lunchbox items were needed. so pleased he was with himself that next thing they are being photographed - he has the blog bug! for a first timer he did a great job. the recipe is from one of my most thumbed books - the new york cookbook by molly o'neill. i know the recipe off by heart so i didn't even have to leave my blogging chair! what will be next?!
