How to be a Good Cook. By Eva.

First, examine the recipe carefully. Select a recipe with ingredients that are in season and fresh, keeping your budget in mind also.

If your mommy gets fingerprints or butter splatters on your recipe book, try not to yell. She'll be grown & in the retirement home before you know it and then you'll be sad you yelled at her.

Next, set your eggs out on the counter prior to cooking and let them reach room temperature. Be sure to measure your ingredients carefully, but if your mommy accidentally spills some or lets it overflow, it'll be OK, most recipes are hard to ruin.

Crack eggs very, very carefully. If you concentrate hard and stick your tongue out and onto your upper lip, you might do a good job.





And always dig out any eggshells that get into your mixture. Mommys tend to be overly dramatic about this. And if your mommy doesn't have clean hands, don't panic, Oprah did a whole show on how too much cleanliness and too much anti-bacterial stuff makes you weaker and more susceptible to germs. Everyone needs a few germs to be healthy. -

Always, always, always let your mommy eat some of the cookie dough.

Choose fun & interesting shapes that the whole family will enjoy. Let your mommy choose whatever shapes she wants for her cookies, no matter what crazy thing she chooses. And don't go behind her and "fix" it, you can leave it with messy edges, it's OK.

Bake & Enjoy!

Looks like Eva is a better cookie maker than I am. I don't dare try to make them into different shapes. When I am done mixing I almost always have a mess to clean up. Think she would be willing to come up and help me bake AND clean up?
