Some things never change
I love to make cookies. I like to think my sugar cookies are my signature but I'll make just about any kind. My boys love chocolate chip cookies so of course I make them for them. For some reason I cannot make a chocolate chip cookie that looks nice. They always taste OK but they would not win a ribbon for looks! Maybe not for taste either but the boys sure eat them up. I made cookies the other day for the first time since we've moved to NZ. It was a challenge from the start as I had to translate my measurements from cups or "stick of butter" to grams and kilograms to the fact that I didn't have a proper measuring cup! Thank goodness that my oven has C* and F* temps on it for baking them at 180* instead of 350* and then watching them so they wouldn't burn. So I've learned that while I'm living in a country where I drive on the other side of the road, take walks to the beach, and I am the one with an accent, some things never change. Like my strange looking but good tasting chocolate chip cookies!
