When it’s bitter cold outside, I really want to bake cakes, cookies, and other goodies. With the fun stoneware baking bowls (thank you again John and Nancy!!) I received for Christmas, I decided to make oatmeal raisin cookies. Here are those lovely bowls in action. I use organic whole wheat flour, which accounts for the richness in the color, versus a white flour.
Thanks to the many free shipping offers that were in abundance during December, I finally bit the bullet and replaced my stand mixer. I’ve never purchased my own mixer before, but I have had two different ‘hand me downs’ from my mother, and their retro roots were clearly proof of how long a good one will last
