My kids are always full of good ideas. We were discussing flavor combinations for cookies and they came up with white chocolate, macadamia nuts, and toffee. My idea of cranberries was nixed in favor of toffee which they deemed superior in every way.
I didn't say my kids were full of healthy ideas.
What I should have said is they are full of delicious ideas. Because the cookies were really delicious!
Once they are done offering suggestions for flavors, they
abandon me leave me alone to work out how to make their ideas a reality. I decided to go with a crunchy cookie this time. They came together quickly and easily.
