My birthday was mid-week last week, and we didn't plan to celebrate on the actual day. However, my daughter could not live without a birthday cake. So, I figured if that was going to happen, I'd better get baking. :)
Side note - I actually did get a birthday cake made for me by my good friend, at work, B. A delicious blueberry crumble cake. However, since it was at work Sassy L wasn't a part of it, so that wasn't going to be good enough for her.
Here's what I did: I made up my favourite chocolate chip cookie dough, and pressed it into two nine inch round pans. I doubled the baking time I would use for a pan of individual cookies, and they were perfect. Enter ice cream!
I think it turned out pretty well, and couldn't resist this picture....
Also, I know ginormous isn't a real word. I like to make up my own vocabulary sometimes.
I am the mother of 2 beautiful children, and the wife of my high school sweetheart. I have just said good-bye to my 20's. It was a great ride, but I am settling into the thought of being a thirty-something. I love to bake, and take comfort in a tidy, organized home. For all my faults, I believe I am saved by the grace of God, and want to live my life in thanksgiving for what He has done for me.
