Cooking in Style

It has been a long time since I have baked chocolate chip cookies. It was raining outside, my daughter had a friend over, and it just seemed like a good day to bake cookies.

When I go to other blogs I see a huge interest in Aprons. As I was baking cookies, I thought about my Mom and her apron. My Mom passed away about 17 years ago from breast cancer. She was always baking cookies. Her specialty was Tea Cakes. Mine is Chocolate Chip. I remembered that I have Mom's apron that she always wore. Now, whether it is an antique or not, I don't know. All I know is that when I put it on it gives me fond memories of her. She is probably the main reason why I don't know how to cook. My dad always said that if we could live on cookies and cakes, we would have it made.

The first picture is a close up of the apron and the embroidery stitches. I love the pink and white check. The second picture is me wearing the apron. I just love my double oven in the background, and don't you think my turquoise flip flops make such a fashion statement?


  1. What a pretty apron ! - - a nice remembrance of your mom! I have one of my grandmother's aprons. My mother has a few other aprons that were her mother's, and also a whole stack of her own (including those fancy, frilly "hostess" aprons --how fun! )

    P.S. -- the turquoise flip flops really make the outfit !!!

  2. OK Amanda, what is up with you not baking the cookies? Ray and I both expect some soon. So please send them home.

  3. Okay. Another thing to add to my list of things to do for people: bake cookies for my brother and sister and mail them to you, 12 hours away.

    I'll be more than happy to do that. :)
