Last week, I made two- yes, sadly, TWO- batches of cookies.

That’s four sticks of butter, three cups of sugar, a bag of chocolate chips, and a whole lot of calories.

I was having a stressful week. And I still am. Thanks a lot, Life.

But baking takes away the stress for about 45-49 minutes, depending on if I preheat my oven or not.

Making people happy with my simple offering of sugar, flour, eggs and chocolate chips takes away the stress.

Sitting down, dunking my cookie into a cold glass of milk and nibbling on the softening goodness takes away the stress. 

Now, I just need to figure out a way to make negative calorie cookies….
