The gift of baked goods

I have a wonderful friend who watched my 3 year old so that DH and I could spend some time together yesterday. We ran some errands and took advantage of the $4.99 breakfast buffet at Shoney's. We really just enjoyed being out together alone. It's been hard for us to do that much. It's something that we need every now and then.

We were so grateful that I wanted to do something to thank her. So I baked her a batch of blondies. These things are absolutely addictive. Especially when they are warm from the oven. I got this recipe from another friend of mine.

1 cup of flour
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 c butter, softened
1 c brown sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1/2 c walnuts
1/2 pkg of mini chocolate chips

I just mix everything but the nuts and chocolate chips together. When you get it mixed well, then add the nuts and chips. Bake at 350 for about 25 minutes in an 8x8 greased pan. These are so wonderful!

I think baking or cooking something for someone is a wonderful way to express your gratitude. Everyone loves something yummy. :)
