We just don't have much of it...what we do with it matters to the Lord.
I've always said my husband, my children, and my home

Blogging is fun and I enjoy it. Living in the country with long Midwest winters is tough sometimes.
The Internet can become a great way to WASTE time.
I want to invent my time more wisely.
Yes, I'll still post a recipe from time to time, but it won't be consistent.
My time with my family, friends, and home WILL BE CONSISTENT.

The Lord stirs our hearts at different times and in different ways.
But we must always be willing to listen and obey.

Until we meet again,
Carla <><

Carla's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies

I can hardly believe that I have yet to blog about cookies!
I have a real heart for baking.  Cookies, Cakes, Pies, Breads, and Rolls are my favorite things to make.
This is the Cookie recipe I developed in high school.  I was always trying to make recipes "my own" even all those years ago.  I still love to try new recipes and tweak ones I find.
I'm thankful for a mom and grandma who instilled in me a love for cooking and baking.
It is such a great way to bless the ones you love with a special sweet treat!
I hope you will enjoy this recipe....I have for MANY years now ;)
