Now, my darling son Nick went through the book when we first received it and I thought he would want to make something hearty, since he loves anything to do with food. When he was younger, we used to bake together and pretend we were French Chefs, and have a really corny French accent as we baked. Well those days are g one for will forever be a memory that I will love and use as ammunition in the future. No, I wouldn’t do that, but It makes me smile ear to ear at those times we had together. He chose to make Ginger Cookies. You can see the results below in the pictures we took last night.
