GCCCO: A Review

With any major project I imagine there will be ups and downs, highs and lows, straight-aways and loopdy loops. Whoops – I started thinking about roller coasters there but the Great Christmas Cookie Cook-Off was exactly that! I thought I’d share with you some of the lessons I learned. :)

1. Not everything looks as good as it tastes

2. Scotch Tape comes in very handy in the kitchen

3. Making cookies every night makes you crave savory, nutritious food during the day

4. You don’t have to sacrifice your social life – your friends and family have ovens, too! (I do advise you to make the dough at home…you never know which kitchen essential your loved ones will lack!)

5. I can never have enough chocolate

6. Make sure you appreciate the ones you live with (though most of the cookies went straight to the vultures at work) with giant initial shaped cookies. :)

7. Your dog will figure out what you’re doing if you bake 25 days in a row and will wait at your feet for flour, salt, sugar and anything else you drop on the floor…making clean up a snap! ;)

8. You can’t always end on a high note

9. Read the instructions BEFORE you begin a new recipe!

Ah well. I also learned a little somethin’ somethin’ about what supplies you do and do not need in your kitchen. Is a Kitchenaid Mixer essential? NO! But, gosh would it be nice. :)
