There are just some foods that are so comforting.
Prime example — homemade chocolate chip cookies!
I made these today to take to our Labor Day cookout tomorrow.
There is so much nostalgia in making these cookies…mixing the batter, licking the beaters, stirring in the chocolate chips, scooping the batter on to the pan, smelling that wonderfully, distinct aroma as the cookies bake, cooling the cookies on the baking rack, taste-testing that first cookie when it is still warm.
Ahhh…love those memories.
Some food definitely is worth the calories…if only for the comforting feelings that are produced.
