The Farm Wife Cooks

Please join me as I share some of our favorite recipes on a new blog.  The Farm Wife Cooks will feature some of our favorites from my files and my adventures as I try new ones from time to time.  Today I share our very favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie.  It is a bit different as the baking soda is added to hot water.  This is something I had done before when I make Raisin Cookies but until I found this recipe in a family cookbook I had not seen it used in a chocolate chip cookie recipe.

April is a month of birthdays in our family.  I, Samantha, Hannah, and Malissa all will celebrate this month.  Sam is excited about a sleep over with her friends.  Hannah will turn sixteen and soon get her driver's licence.  Malissa and I both have birthday's that end in a five. 

This card was sent from Grandma Lucy's niece, Katie Mae.  The stamp has been torn off.  The date is gone along with the stamp.  I suspect the note was really sent by Katie's mother.  Katie was born in 1909 and was the first of eight children born to Lucy's sister Anna Mae.  Katie had a sister born in 1910.  I would guess that this was sent in May of 1910 for Lucy's birthday before the second daughter was born.
