The benefits (or downfall, depending on how you look at it) of being a baker, means that I can literally feed my emotional eating needs when required.
Without engaging my inner Drama Llama, I can tell you that sometimes the truth hurts.
But what hurts more is fighting my truth. And, let me tell you, it also takes a huge amount of energy.
To fight the truth is to fight a losing battle.
Feeling defeated over the weekend, I embraced my baking skills and made these delicious cookies.

Also - 1 tsp baking powder, ½ tsp almond extract, 1 tsp salt – if you have them in the cupboard… I didn’t!

Slowly add dry ingredients to the original bowl
When combined, add choc chips

Life isn't so bad with a cookie and a cup of tea.
