And he bakes, too...

He opens the door, the boys rush inside, and I follow with a tad less rushiness, arms filled with gift bags and picture frames as well as my daily work tote, which is filled to capacity.

What is that smell? That smell that fills my mind with thoughts of sugar and dough and chocolate chips? It is cookies. Not pre-made cookies, not pre-prepared cookie dough made into cookies, not even cookies made by following the recipe on the bag of chocolate chips...cookies using a recipe he sought out and researched.

There was already a mound of cookies in the extra-large, stainless steel mixing bowl, but there were still about twice as many coming, each batch getting better as the timing was mastered and finally perfected. Oh, that last batch made the recipe reviews live up to their high praises for this cookie. They are soft and sweet and moist and, well, just marvelous.

Nothing like coming home to some warm, freshly-baked, chocolate chip cookies;>
