Blogging since 2009, I'm a 1950s housewife to the bone and I love to share what I've learned with others. I'm a lifelong foodie, raised with Sunday dinners at my grandmother's and daily scratch cooking in my childhood kitchen. I'm a nerdy homeschooling mama of 3, and a wife of 17 years.

I drink tea when I knit and coffee when I do everything else.

Potato Chip Cookies

Domestic, Kids

I’ve been silent for a week because I’ve been trying to figure out what to do about the whole ‘am I a site with a blog, or am I a blog with a site to organize my posts?’ dilemma. I have come to decide that this is in fact a blog, and I will be using the headers up there as a way to organize all the content. So today for example, I’m going to post about Potato Chip Cookies, and after the post is up, I will link to it on the ‘domestic’ page with a little thumbnail for the recipe. Simple. Clean. Organized. Insert contented sigh here. This means though that for a little while I will probably be posting twice a day, because I have so many amazing recipes and crafty tutorials and makeup fun to share!

Potato Chip Cookies are what happen when you tell your 6 year old it’s her turn to pick the cookie recipe. She sat down at my laptop, cracked her knuckles, and Googled this. Not bad. They sound awful and there certaintly are not gourmet, but they’re awful at all. Since I’ve made these, I have discovered potato chip cookies with pecans from My Baking Addiction! It came down to this one from Emeril or Baking Bites. We went with Baking Bites.

Officially, we made these on March 13/11 and they were the 12th cookie of 2011 – Cookie Year.
