Two days after the church’s gathering, they requested three more batches of the cookies
Home baking has become my passion. Ever since I tried to make my own brownies, I never stopped making baked goods. I taught myself by trying out a lot of recipes online. I saw my mistakes as learning experiences. As a result, I ended up making baked goods every year for my neighbors and my best friend. I made it my own tradition during the holidays. Last December, I was asked by our local church to bake five cakes and five dozens of my famous big and nutty chocolate chip cookies. They paid me in advance so I could get the ingredients. All I needed was a proper venue because my kitchen was not big enough. My friend gave me access to the soup kitchen that was free for three days that week. I grabbed the opportunity. Immediately, I bought the ingredients and brought them to the soup kitchen. My friend went to the basement and turned on the ventilation and the air conditioning. She said she needed to call her HVAC contractor to look at the system because it sounded weird when she turned it on. Half an hour later, the HVAC repair man arrived and started working on the system. I told my friend that I needed the air conditioning up because I would be using three ovens at the same time. It didn’t take long before the air conditioner blasted cool air into the kitchen. I churned the big cookies first that night and then continued the next day. The cakes came last. I packed the cooled cookies in airtight bags and placed them in a box. Two days after the church’s gathering, they requested three more batches of the cookies. I said sure.
