Just like mom used to make!!
Well, this statement is not entirely true. My mom can't follow a recipe to save her life. She actually tried to make pork with plum sauce recipe with a can of fruit coctail once. She did an amazing job of home cooking every day of my life. She's just, well, flexible and intuitive. Two things that do not favor baking.
So did it work? Did I loose all my worries in a cookie? Well, just like a voice on the other end of the phone can't really replace the love of your life, a cookie can't replace home. But when it's all you've got, it'll do.
