The whirling sound of the kitchenAid and the sweet smell of vanilla, eggs and flour coming together brings back nostalgic memories of my mom in the kitchen baking a small batch of chocolate chip cookies. A master of the rolling pin, my mom could bake like no other. Celebrations always included amazing cakes, cookies or breads that were special and unique. Baking is a family zen thing, when life gets tough the Widman girls hit the kitchen to work out the worries through the wonder of combining eggs, flour and sugar. I miss your sweet treats, mom!
