I feel so accomplished that I finished all fifty states.
I really learned a lot while doing it, too. Bonus!
So now what?
Where do I go from here?
I still have 295 cookies to go.
TWO HUNDRED NINETY FIVE
It's a little daunting when I see it written out like that. Then I look at the pages of my planning notebook and I see about 250 spots empty. Then I have to remind myself, "Hey, you've already made SEVENTY. Two hundred and ninety five should be a piece of cake (or cookie)!"
I do have some exciting things planned for the upcoming weeks. I have some original recipes I can't wait to share with you all, as well as some more traditional recipes from friends and family.
Then there's Halloween.
Oh, just wait until Christmas.
Now, about this favor I ask. I would love, love, LOVE if you all could share with me some cookies that you have a fondness for.
Maybe it's a cookie you're great-aunt Flo made and eating it reminds you of sunny days sitting on a porch drinking lemonade.
Maybe it's a cookie that you had once at a party or a bakery and you'd love to be able to recreate it. Maybe it's a recipe that's been handed down, generation after generation in your family (I love those!). Either way, I want your cookie ideas!
It doesn't have to be a recipe. It can be a cookie idea. All I need is a basic descriptive of the cookie and I'll do my best to deliver and I'll be sure to give credit where credit is due.
