I was determined to make layered cookie bars for a school bake sale. But being 12, I wasn't very organized. I ended up making about 3 separate trips to the grocery store 3 blocks away because I didn't read the whole recipe and make a list! At least it was close by. I've since learned to stock up on Nestle chips and other goodies!

I can't stock up on chocolate chips. In my house, a bag of Nestle chocolate chips becomes open season. They're always all gone when I want to bake!

Marianne, at the tender age of 12 you learned the most fundamental lesson of all bakers: read the directions completely & assemble the ingredients BEFORE doing anything else! (This same rule applies in many of life's challenges, especially home repairs, putting toys together, etc.) I doubt you ever made that mistake again.

I do the same thing. I do make a list but usually leave it at home!!
Jessica B--the same thing used to happen with the chocolate chips here. I used to say they evaporated. I couldn't keep them in the house.

With age, I learned to become organized. In fact I keep most things on hand so that I don't have to make special trips in the middle of cooking. I noticed that you have learned to stock up now, too.
