Just call me Suzy. . .

What is it about getting married that brings out the maternal-ness in us women? I know I'm not the first one to be like this because all of you have told me so! But I suddenly find the urge to bake and cook and clean and take care of the hubby.

So I decided to start by making bread. . .

And then it was on to cookies. And I just HAD to use my NEW VIKING MIXER! (thanks Uncle Richard, Aunt Jackie, Dennis, Killer Bee, Hunter and Bree) Well. . .(and don't laugh Michelle!) I screwed up to the beginning because I used the WHIP attachment instead of the mix attachment. But don't worry. All is well. I fixed it and even got 12 good cookies out of the thing!

Here's to getting better at being Suzy!!!

I'm not laughing at you, I swear!

It took me about six batches of cookies before I figured out how different they are from handheld beaters. Main thing is to keep scraping down the bowl and scrape the very bottom (hard) several times.

So now you can stop crying over the cookies I was supposed to send you and make your own!

I'll send you my new, top-secret recipe (but you better not post it before I do MY Christmas cookie posts!)
