Every holiday season is a very special time, where I am beyond grateful and abundantly thankful, to spend with my little kingdom. I am one of those mothers who is totally in-love, and overly obsessed with my children! My desire is that they live the best life possible, and that God continues to provide the chance to love on them with the most memorable, and everlasting experiences in their young lives. The best way that I can show my immense gratitude, and give God all the glory is by baking sweet treats for my family. My kitchen has become my escape from the world, sanctuary, therapeutic release, with the oven being my nightly counselor, and I really adore making the kitchen counters my personal canvas.
This is one of my favorite times of year to really captivate all the deliciousness of the holidays. I have to admit that I am still learning how to bake cookies, cakes, and other confectionaries. But God and HIS beloved son Jesus have not given up on the baking anointing yet!
And Girl, I tried to keep it simple by going back to the basics with a classic chocolate chip cookie. As a special bonus I have collaborated with some of the most amazing bloggers on the planet with their unique cookie recipes, and magnificent baking talents for this once in a life-time blog hop this Thanksgiving weekend!
