summer bakin'

i am not talking about laying in the sun and getting the all-coveted tan. (please read this post about sunscreen causing cancer!)  but, cookies. crispy but gooey cookies.

stack them up...anyway you like. i love cookies especially homemade and fresh from the oven. so does this little guy!

my kids are big helpers in the kitchen (and out! ava couldn't even wait to get her new kitchen into the house.

 they even love to help clean-up. i am not quite sure but, i don't think we could get wetter outside in a rainstorm.

once we are all cleaned up and have enjoyed a few or a few too many, i like to save a few in the freezer to make ice cream sandwich cookies. i absoluetly love double chocolate coconut cookies. you can get this recipe from martha stewart. i put 2 of these cookies together with sliced bananas and either frozen yogurt or vanilla bean ice cream and we enjoy them after a hard day's play.


  1. oh my gosh, i see some baking in my future. yum:) sweet memories.

  2. We baked cookies tonight! Something about children and helping in the kitchen. It just makes me smile.

  3. I'm not a cookie person, but i have to say, these look so good!

  4. YUM! What a blessing to have 2 such adorable helpers. They sure look like they are having fun. I love the photos! :)
