Now that the kids are back to school, I’m also back to packing lunches. As much as possible, I try to keep their lunches healthy, yummy, and homemade. Especially the treats and cookies. I like to know what ingredients my kids are eating, and the only way to do this is to make them myself. Plus, I love to bake!
These chocolate chip cookies have been made in my kitchen countless times, and they are a family favourite!
