Have y'all noticed a theme in our post? Each day we have a different subject to chat about, today we're suppose to talk about a "go to" book, it could be cooking, crafting, or just general reading. I can honestly say I don't have a "go to" book, all of my recipes are either in my little pattern box or I make things up as I go along.
When I was growing up my mother had a cookbook and all I can remember is it had Charleston in it's name. I've always played in the kitchen and nothing is better then making a cake or cookies from scratch, I can still remember pulling this book out of it's safe keeping drawer and going through it to make something special for my parents, well, more like my Dad, Mom doesn't really care for sweets, but this little girl knew back then that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So, it had to be between 1972 & 1974 that I started my adventure into baking from scratch, if I followed the recipe to a "T" the cookies would come out perfect but adding or deleting something...well...not so good...my father loves to tell the story about some cookies that the dog wouldn't even eat, I find that hard to believe but he swears it's true to this day.
I will promise you something...this recipe will not be refused by the dog, husband, kids...you mark by word this will make you the most popular chef on the block...
