Fun Andrea fact number 1,001. I am not a baker, but there’s something so nostalgic about milk and cookies and the holidays I can’t deny it. I’ve desperately tried to bake. (Ok, I’ve tried a handful of times.) I remember one year I messed up my cookies so bad for a pending cookie exchange I threw them in the trash and promptly went to Whole Foods to buy some that I could pass off as my own. I had no idea the intricacies involved in this true art form. The dough was too hot then it was too cold. It was like a bad relationship. I DO, however love to eat cookies. That I make. From a box. And I love milk.
We all know that the holiday traditions are really about connection. It doesn’t matter how perfectly things look from the outside. The day of this photo shoot neither one of my kids wanted to take pictures. As soon as the cookies and milk came out it was a different story. It reminded me that it’s about the moments we share as family and friends and the reasons we gather that bring us closer are really just secondary to the love.
In my continued effort to make my home a Rockwellian dream over the holidays, Milk and cookies are a staple at our house. Like I said, I don’t particularly like to bake but I do love the smell of boxed cookies in the oven and the special look on my kids faces when they get to eat them with a warm glass of milk. I know my kids always feel special when I “bake“ for them and I will continue to do it any chance I get.
Recently I heard something so disturbing. 1 in 6 children will struggle with hunger in America? I keep asking myself how this is even possible in a developed country? That’s why when I heard that DairyPure was teaming up with Feeding America I was so excited to partner with them.
