Hi everyone, and welcome to the Cooking with Emma Show!
I'm going to make cookies for the girls to eat while they watch "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" tonight.
First, we need to crack some fresh eggs into a large bowl.
Easy peasy, right?
Now, we pour some olive oil in it.
Oops! Just make sure to not dump the whole thing in your eggs. I'll just have to add more of the other ingredients.
Now, we add some milk to the mix.
You also might want to pour some vanilla extract in. I want these cookies to be very vanilla-y, so I'm going to add a LOT. :)
These are the rest of my ingredients. See the pan on the far left? We'll use that to bake the cookies on.
I made a bit of a mess of the counter.
Alright! Now that you have your wet ingredients you can...
Oh no! I forgot the butter!
Butter is really important to make the cookies nice and smooth and light, instead of flat and hard.
Yay! We're finished with that part!
Now, you have to find your mixer, whether it's an hand mixer or a stand.
And you mix the batter.
Iv'e already gotten a second bowl out for the dry ingredients.
Now, adding these ingredients is pretty important.
You need to make sure you add the right amount of everything so that it will combine right.
First you should add some flour, because that's the most important ingredient.
Next, we put some baking soda...or is it powder? Hmm...just put one or the other in. I'm not sure if they're different at all.
Now you mix it all up...
Until it's all evenly combined...
Then you can start pouring your wet ingredients in!
I like to mix it up by hand now, because sometimes the mixer sprays everything all over the kitchen, and it's really hard to clean up.
Oh, Ginger! You knocked over my wet ingredients! Now I can't make cookies.
Bad cat, look at what you did!
The eggs are all over the floor, and now I have to clean this up.
"Hi Emma, I heard you shouting from the other room. What's going on?"
Well Sam, Ginger knocked over the wet ingredients I was mixing for your cookies.
"Aww, Ginger just wants food, Emma. Someone forgot to fed her last night! Here, I'll take here out of your way."
Well, this has been the Cooking with Emma Show! I guess I'll just leave the cookie baking to the experts. :) For now, I've got to order pizza.
Poor Emma! I'm not sure she knows how to read recipe directions yet, but we'll work on it. ;)
We're almost to 100 posts! Woohoo! And, we now have 22 lovely followers. Thank you so much guys! You're awesome.
I've found out that my camera lens is broken (the main body still works) so it might be a while before I can find a new (relatively cheap) one.
I also plan on adding clothes to my Etsy shop if/when I can sew again (which might also be awhile).
Trying to juggle life/blogging is hard. Really, really hard. :}
Sorry for that random paragraph on my life. See you guys later!
