When I was around 10 years old I was always interested in baking. My mom was a faboulous cook, but never baked. As a child with a sweet tooth I started to read recipes and try for myself. Mom never let me bake when she was not home bacause back in the day we had a gas stove with a pilot light on it that had to be lit with a match. well one Sunday morning when she headed off to church I DECIDED i WANTED TO SURPRISE HER WITH A BATCH OF CHOCOLATE chip cookies when she got home from church. I proceeded to follow the recipe for the nestles toll house cookies. My aunt had always told me to sift the flour as I did and for some reason the whole kitchen looked like a cloud of puffs everywhere. You couldn't even see the table or counter. Well I managed to put the recipe together. I went over to the oven and took a match to light the pilot light on the stove, not knowing mom kept kitchen towels in the bootom drawer of the old oven along with oven mits in there. When i lit the pilot light on the stove the oven went poof and the next thing I knew the towels and oven mits caught on fire. I was panicked and didn't know what to do , so I rand next door and got my elderly neighbor and he ran over my house and successfully put the fire out and not to mention I got in a heap of trouble when mom got home from church. I never baked again unless my mom was home, but it did not stop me from being a baker. I continue to bake to this day and truly enjoy the nestle toll house cookies with a lil less clouds in the kitchen.
