I got it in my head to make chocolate crinkle cookies with Owen this week. In a hurry, I just grabbed a recipe from the first hit on Google. Big mistake. That is a recipe created by someone who apparently feels that neither chocolate nor crinkles are important characteristics of a cookie that has both those words in its name.

The lesson? I should have just taken the time to call my mom and ask for her recipe. Calling mom? Hardly ever a mistake. Trusting random recipes off the web? So far, pretty much always the wrong move.
