Hey y'all! I've got some good news, and I've got some great news! Which should I start with first? Okay, I'll start with the good news!
The good news is that this year, I participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, which if it isnt obvious by it's name, involves food bloggers sending cookies to one another. BUT, it's also a means to support a great cause. You see, each food blogger that participates makes a donation to Cookies for Kids Cancer (a non-profit organization that funds research for pediatric cancer), and then brands like OXO and Dixie Crystals match the donations, dollar for dollar. This year, $13,778.40 was raised! That's a whole lot of dollars...and a whole lot of cookies!
And that brings me to my great news! I'm finally starting to not be such a baby when recipes don't turn out as planned for me. Instead of temper tantrums and giving my kitchen the silent treatment, I have learned to channel my emotions into finding the cause of my failure and working to fix it. I think this means I'm all growed up now. Well lucky for you guys, growed up Meriem makes some pretty bombdotcom recipes...starting with this one!
