I did it. I figured out how to make chocolate chip cookies here. Took me quite a while to gather all the required ingredients. Brown sugar being the most elusive. My grocery shopping mentor gave me the baking soda. I brought the chocolate chips from home. I used an IKEA childrens cup as the measuring cup (it looks like it holds about a cup, right?) I used a spaghetti pot as the mixing bowl. A soup spoon as a teaspoon. Ingredient I'm the most curious about - the vanilla. It came in little glass viles, the kind that perfume samples come it. The flavor is called vanilla butter. Smells just like it's name too. End result? Good! I assume they'll be even tastier when I get my measuring cups and spoons. Most importantly though, the girls and I really had fun baking.
