Cookie Disasters

Martha Steward I am not.
Baby wearing Cookie Baking

EVER. I'm just happy that I keep this kid alive everyday.

My aunt sent me a sugar cookie recipe that was my (let me see if I can get this right) great, great, great grandma's. I remember the cookies BEING DELICIOUS when my grandmother would make them, so I said those magical 5 jinxing words, "How hard can it be?"

Apparently, I need to be a grandmother before I'm able to make these cookies!!

SERIOUSLY.  I'm about two cookie batches away from throwing the towel in and playing Scrooge! The dough starts out really sticky. I guess Karo syrup will do that hu? You're suppose to add flour to it while you're rolling out, but I added too much as I was rolling it out, and so now the cookies taste like flour and not like cookies. IMHO. My husband told me they tasted good. He's my husband, he has to say that...right?

You decorate the cookies with sugar before you put them in the oven. I'm thinking that a bag of Keebler cookies out of a bag and on a tray will be as good, right?

In baby news, Bug has been on some sort of sleep strike. He has reverted back to short naps and waking up all the freaking time. Seriously, it's such a good thing that he is so cute. I think it is the antibiotics playing a trick on him because he was sleeping through the night before he got sick. Hopefully he will go back to sleeping more than two hours at a time when he's done with them. It would have been easier for me if he would have continued to get up every two hours up, but getting three months of sleep was so fabulous and now I miss it again.

My two favorite guys
 Bug's dad always gets him ready for bed. (Well 6/7 days a week.) Tonight he wasn't having it (going to bed) so my two guys are passed out on the couch. My cat is not amused!

Oh! Don't forget to vote for Adam (or super adorable 87 year old guy, but definitely Adam!)


  1. Haha. Chocolate chip cookies are like that for me. I mess them up every time I make them, no matter what recipe I use. I've just given up.

  2. I can totally relate to the cookie story....I've been trying to get my grandmas ginger cookie recipe made to post later in the month and also got incredibly sticky dough....that recipe was followed by another cookie recipe that I forgot to add baking powder and soda to......I ended up with flat crunchy cookies.....not having any Martha Stewart moments lately!
