Yesterday I got some milk for working at a local farm.
Milk has a cream that you can skim off of the top, which we did. Then we put that cream into a jar, shook like crazy, pressed, and added Himalayan salt. The results? Delicious butter.

It was my friend's birthday yesterday and I wanted to make him some chocolate chip cookies as a present. Thanks to my amazing friend Kyle I now have a recipe that's simple yet amazing (No, really). These turned out great. Actually I feel a little silly, it's the same recipe I've used before but instead of butter it's vegetable shortening. Something I've considered before but never put into practice.
I wanted to make a special big birthday cookie
So I melted some chocolate and had fun
1 cup shortening
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package chocolate chips
(It originally called for butterscotch chips, which he's made me, they are great!)
1. Cream together shortening, brown sugar and white sugar.
2. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
3. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to creamed mixture.
4. Stir in one pack of chip. Spoon out onto baking sheet.
5. Bake at 375°F for 8-12 minutes.
