These cookies are absolutely perfect..soft chewy chunky and packed with flavor..
I know I should be baking pumpkin stuff but these cookies were calling this family's name..meaning I wanted to bake and taste.
Not disappointing in the least..in fact I would say one of my favorites..
I did add a new vanilla sugar imported from France..Bourbon..just a hint but packs a nice nice punch..
I always say desserts are not my favorite..I think I know why..a rich chewy cookie..for breakfast..pleases me more that piece of frosted cake after dinner:)
You can find the recipe here..as you know I don't invent recipes..I encourage others by trying theirs:)♥I used milk chocolate chips.
They are soft and chewy.
Thank you ETK.
More painting sessions with some of my collection..
I have a little box....it's the Winsor and Newton Sketcher's box..it was a gift to me..maybe 20 years ago..when a group of us sat in a basement for several weeks and learned a few things..
undoubtedly my favorite classes.
I have since bought another..maybe 10 yrs ago..I never thought or knew about refilling pans:(
Now I know..
It's a handy little set..comes w/ that tiny silver brush you.
I don't know why white is included in sets..it's opaque..does nothing for me at all:(..Payne's Grey does:)
It's the set I brought to Paris..as my Cheap Joe's one weighs more..
Maybe 6 years ago..I found a large WN set on Ebay from the UK and bought it..it was in the $20 dollar range then if I am not mistaken..and my canadian dollar was worth gold:)
I am ashamed to say I have another kit..from WN..that I bought in Fl..w/ a water bottle..the bottle never opened and closed properly so it is all taped together in a traveling cigar box..the Field Plus Travel Set..I hate my bottle:(..
Anyway as you can see over the years I've ..but increased my paint supplieshad a fondness for paints and papers...
The little pumpkin on a neighbor's porch was painted in this fun book..
The Moleskin Japanese Accordeon Album
I fell in love with it while visiting Rita..
I love how hers is like a book that is a story..or of similar scenes..mine is haphazard..
It's not watercolor paper but works well:)It holds the paint..looks vibrant..and really so cute.
I would definitely get another when I finish this one.
Thank you Rita for the inspiration.:)
It is amazing how fast time flies..the collage you see above.. above ..is about 5 years old..yet it feels like yesterday..when we packed my car w/ our cameras..bought pears..snapped things that were past their flowering prime but full prime seed forming..
fall does in effect have the richest colors of the wheel..the warmest colors..
my mom's favorite colors♥
