All while I was growing up I remember my mom making chocolate chip cookies as a special treat to take to school on my birthday or other occasions. Sometimes she would make chocolate chip brownies, but the recipe was always the same. When we were having work done on our VT house, my mom made cookies for the workers. She felt that it would make them want to keep working and not go off to other VT jobs. We made A LOT of cookies that summer. For her memorial service I made about 6 batches of chocolate chip cookies and placed them throughout the house.

Lately my husband has been making chocolate chip cookies, but we always seem to be missing at least one ingredient so he uses substitutions. Being reminded of this Mom Minder makes me want to go stock up on all the ingredients and really show him how it's done.
I completed this photo project from May 2009 to May 2010. Six years later, I'm reposting the series with additional thoughts. Here's what I wrote about it when I started.
