Cookies are my downfall…

Cookies, are irresistible.

I try. I really do. But every now and then, I indulge. Insanely. Completely.

A high school classmate has a bakery and catering business called From the Farm (and I couldn’t call her an “old” classmate cause that makes me just as old). Her chocolate chip cookies hit all the right buttons for me—a good chocolate chip to dough ratio (meaning at least 50/50), soft, and almost tastes like raw cookie dough, but with a cooked texture. OH MY!! I am so glad I don’t live nearby. I would eat way way WAY too many.

I bought a dozen. There were three left. My husband was going to take some on a business trip and forgot. There weren’t any left when he got home. (Oh darn.)

Yvette’s website will be coming in 2014. Whipping up tasty delights has sidetracked her online presence. But you can find her on Facebook. As far as I know, her plans are to keep her business local to the Iron Range area of northeastern Minnesota.

And my mom made molasses cookies for our Christmas get-together. This is all that’s left of them. She isn’t known for baking soft cookies, but these are. Don’t know what she did differently this time, but YAY mom!

Lighting set up.

And for my photographer friends wondering about the set up of this cookie session. There is also a window to photo left, too. Which in the cookie photos, is behind the cookies. I just ordered this lightbox, with the hopes of replacing my old one that didn’t like cooperating with me. This Westcott Rapid Box was super easy to set up, lightweight, and the few test shots I did with my dog and more seriously with these cookies, so far so good! I’ll have to write up a little review after I’ve had a chance to use it a bit more. But I’ll definitely be selling the Photoflex Medium Lightdome that I have. It’s in great condition, so if interested, let me know.
