Welcome back. You have been missed. How are the girls. Any new babies? I know. Questions, questions, questions.

I managed to get two dozen of farm fresh eggs. I had to shame my youngest son Poo into it. He even bought a dozen for his house and finally understands why I was making such a fuss about them. He called me from work to rave about them. So while the chickens are laying, I will be in fresh eggs.

Great to see you back

Sounds like you sure have been busy in the kitchen whilst away, good to see

Made choc chip cookie dough today.

Read where you could put it into a gallon zip lock bag .. smoosh it down until it's all one thickness. Put in fridge until firm. Cut away ziploc bag. Cut into equal portion squares then bake.

Sounded so much easier than spoonfuls so I am trying it.

Dough in fridge. Tomorrow cut and bake .. we will see .. who knows .. square cookies may become the normal at my house !

I use a dasher. (ice cream scoop) One less piece of equipment to wash. No dishwasher here. No more dasher. Only Dancer. Me! Around the kitchen.

It's magic! They start out square, but turn out round after you bake them!

I haven't been baking for months and months. All of a sudden in weather that is going to be in the 80's I want to bake. I want to try that square CC cookies. And I need to call my daughter to see if she is going to be down in her yard today. I would like to spend some time with her. And I know her husband would love to have some homemade cookies.

I washed up my Big Top giant doughnut silicone cake pans and am planning an Apple-Cream Cheese doughnut with a bundt cake recipe I found on MyRecipes.com

Oh, dear, farm-fresh eggs will spoil you and Poo!
