    Hi
    Glad to meet you! Great blog - I like the concept. I read your cookie post - I totally agree with you! I also had a SAHM that baked. My fave is oatmeal chocolate chip with loads of cinnamon and some nuts if I have any on hand! Please stop by my party at www.motherlylaw.com.
    Thanks, Anna from Motherly Law
