I love these cookies! In fact, we still have the recipe card that your mom gave us. We like to eat them warm with vanilla icecream on top. It's REALLY good.

Hey Chelsea! I have now made your banana bread and now these fabulous cookies. And they've both turned out great. Keep up the fun recipes. Your family is so cute. And Noah is absolutely adorable. I can actually tell how his little personality is from all his pictures. Hope you don't mind me checking in to see what you've been up to.
