One of my cookie recipes went missing a long time ago. It's a brown sugar cookie with sunflower seeds that I absolutely love (no eggs--I am allergic). But it disappeared. Back then, there was a food section in the newspaper that had a column called "recipe quest." I sent in my request and sure enough, a few weeks later, my cookie recipe was printed in the newspaper. Not only that, I was given the name of the book where it was first printed. Years later, I found that very book on eBay! I now have about 5 copies of that cookie recipe as well as the book.
But today, I sit here without my recipes. Funny how the things you miss in a situation like this are NOT what you'd expect. I miss my socks--I have a whole big box of socks somewhere--and I miss my cookbooks. I may not use them much, but they are a comfort. The new house will have a special shelf for my special cookbooks even though most of the time when I cook, I bring up a recipe on my iPad.
Next week on the blog, we will start our "cookie exchange" and I thank goodness the recipe I will be sharing is in the Cozy Chicks Kitchen. I can't find my copy, but Lorraine will help!
