When I left home to go to undergraduate college (oh my, all the way back in 2004), one of the things I took with me was recipes. I raided my Mom's recipe drawer, and copied down handwritten recipes onto index cards.
By now I have done a lot of cooking, and gathered many, many more recipes. But every so often I come back to those cards, stained and wrinkled as they are now.
Last week I needed a quick recipe to cook for my girls in the dorm, for a study break (I do a study break every couple weeks). I got home late from lab, with just time to whip up a batch of something.
Enter one of those dog-eared cards: Snickerdoodles!
They were well-received. I barely managed to snap this shot before they disappeared.
