The One With Ellie Baking Chocolate Chip Cookies

My family has been visiting from Idaho for the past couple of days. It has been nice to have someone to keep Ellie entertained. And they are very good at entertaining her. Yesterday, she helped make chocolate chip cookies with her grandma.

Her contribution was mostly moral support - offering lots of "Yummy, yummy, yummy"s to encourage the chef. She was in charge of product control - making sure the batter was up to standard.

Apparently, it was.

She also inspected the Semisweet Chunks bag to make sure none were left behind.

It was a pretty fun day for her. And for me. My mom makes amazing chocolate chip cookies. We just used the recipe on the back of the Nestle Semisweet Chunks bag, but then added zest of orange peel and a tablespoon of almond extract. You should try it. It makes an already pretty amazing cookie just that much better. Seriously.

And since Olivia is also cute, here is a picture of her. She is cheering because she also liked the chocolate chip cookies when they came to her in the form of milk a few hours later.


  1. How stinking cute! Ellie is sucha doll! She is going to treasure that picture of her and Tammy later in life! How adorable!

  2. You're girls are so cute Michelle! Just adorable!

  3. Olivia is getting so old already and I've only seen her a few times! I think a visit it definitely much needed. Perhaps I can manage to get Tom in there too!
