|My poor attempt to "dress up" the crispy cookies|
I guess I have baking stage fright.
It's funny, but other challenging things in my life, don't have this same effect. Right now I am in the middle of submitting for a writer's contest, and the challenge of it doesn't scare me, but pushes me to do my absolute best. I wish I could take some of that drive for the simple things in life, like baking a dozen cookies for 6 year olds. But I guess it's good to spend that energy on my dreams, and the money on some nifty bakery-made cookies that I'll place on my own platter :)!
