thanks so much ladies for your words of encouragement!!!
the cookie party was good. no drama. nothing terrible happened. and i didn't get upset or cry.
we baked all day, and i was exhausted when it was over. but it was great to spend time with my friends. and really nice to hear how much they missed me hanging around :)
for those who are interested..... everyone was responsible for two different kinds of cookies. we were to bake one kind of cookie before the party and bring it with us. and the second, we were to bring the ingredients and recipe to make while we were hanging out.
for the cookies made ahead of time, i made black and whites. and while we were hanging out i made chocolate crackles.
(FYI if you like food blogs, smitten kitchen and bakerella are both awesome!!) both recipes were super easy and so so good.
