fifty two on fridays | week twenty

“Cooking is like love; it should be entered into with abandon or not at all.”
- Julia Child

Time got away from me, & I wasn't able to take new pictures for this week's theme. I do, however, have some pictures from December that I still love, as well as a more recent iPhone photo of Ruby & me.

That being said, I have to add that I'm a huge sucker for cookies, & Will has inherited my love for them. He loves to help me make them on the rare occassion that I do. I've been known to eat 4 dozen cookies by myself in a couple days, so I've had to refrain from baking too often. So when we do make cookies, it's a wonderful treat. Seriously, I have hardly any self-control, if any, when it comes to eating homemade cookies, so I try not to put the temptation out there.

One of Will's jobs while making cookies is to unwrap the butter (after thoroughly washing his hands, of course). He also loves to help measure & add the ingredients, mix the dough, & then lick the beaters when everything else is done. And of course, let's not forget the part where he gets to eat fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies (if I don't beat him to it!).

  1. Your kitchen looks like such a fun place!! One day let's have a virtual cookie exchange. I love cookies, too!

  2. What fun pictures to remember the simple joy of making cookies together! Can you share how you eat all the cookies and stay so skinny :)

    1. I have been called a skinny fat girl many times. My cookie eating habit is definitely not a healthy one! I've been really good about refraining lately. ;)

  3. Such fun pictures...I especially love the ones with you in them! Looks like a great time!

  4. Looks like so much fun! Great images!
