I like to bake cookies during the summer season.
During the rest of the year, I am consistently busy as a high school teacher.
When I am not in a classroom, I am at home planning for the week of classes. It takes multiple hours of planning every week to be a good teacher and provide proper lessons to the students. When the summer season begins, I relax and put up my feet. I use the summer months 4 activities that I find fun and enjoyable. One of those activities is baking. Baking cookies was something that I did with my mom when I was a little girl. Even after she passed away, I continued with the cookie baking tradition. I make pecan sandies, chocolate chip cookies, and filled raisin cookies. My husband loves the summer months, because he always has fresh and tasty treats for work. Last week I made a double batch of chocolate cookies with mint chips. The heat from the oven filled the house and the air conditioner was working overtime. I had sweat pouring down the side of my face. Halfway through making the cookies, I noticed that the temperature in the kitchen was getting warmer and warmer. Since the oven was running, the air conditioner was working twice as hard to keep up with the demand. I decided to bring a circulating fan from the bedroom into the kitchen. With the oven running all day, the air conditioner was having trouble. The bedroom fan certainly managed to help the indoor air situation.
