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.
