Mmmm, Mmmm Memory: Chocolate No Bake Cookies

Feminists don’t cook. At least, that’s what I was taught. As a child, I viewed cooking as dreaded “woman’s work,” something that HAD to be done and the only fools that enjoyed it were the retro, weak females without a brain. Ok, so that’s a little strong but I was taking cues from my mother.

Then I took Home Economics at school. We had an awesome home ec room with about 10 mini-kitchen stations.

No, it didn’t really look like that. I’m not THAT old. Just a cool picture from 1939.

This is closer to what it looked like:

Each station had it’s own stove/oven, sink, cabinets, chopping block, etc. Because the rest of the world was catching up to my mother’s view, home ec was on its way out of the curriculum. There were only about 10 of us in the class. So we each got our own mini kitchen. And after our first cooking lesson – Chocolate No Bake Cookies – I was hooked! Secretly, very secretly, I was in HEAVEN!

I found this on Photobucket:

This is exactly the recipe I use.

This is what they’ll look like once you make them:

Oh, and you’re going to need this, too:
