Don’t those look yummy! I have mine with a really good espresso or strong dark coffee. Here’s my Grandma’s recipe.
1 cup of “Oleo” (It’s margarine but she called it butter. I use real butter)
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 bag of chocolate chips.
Baking and cooking are chemistry, so women have been navigating science in the home for as long as the species has been around. Almost everything we’ve done in keeping the nest is science and multitasking. Nor did we need a 3D printer or AI (Artificial Intelligence) to pretend like we could copy life. We make life automatically in our bodies. We really do need to take credit for how we kick it in so many ways.
Speaking for myself, as a young, fertile, horny woman, the main reason I didn’t take credit, is that I knew that if I was a threat to a man, better at something or smarter than him, I’d never have sex again. If you’re too competent, too articulate, too assertive, and have too high of an IQ and are cute, you won’t have much sex because you’re too hard to please. Last I checked, guys hate that the most. I can’t tell you how many women and gay men warned me about that. Women want sex (and babies) more than anything in the world and that’s what the men are for. Let’s admit it.
Why wouldn’t we admit that? Slut-shaming? Meaning the assumption is that a woman who admits that her body is on automatic pilot for sex is also a slut. That’s absolutely not true. Not if she picks a partner she is compatible with and has at it instead of with a hundred men which was the situation in matriarchy.
During matriarchy, women, and children lived together and the men just came in for a conjugal visit and left. Thus, they are hardwired to be with as many, and as much of a variety of women as possible following their old brain. There is nothing new about the hook-up. That’s how the dominant women wanted it! That era is over and was bad for everybody; women, children, and especially men. The children never knew their fathers! That’s matriarchy’s theme. It’s still hanging around in some cultures today.
Thus, the ascendancy of patriarchy so the men could live with a woman and gain very valuable human communication skills and learn how to love through having his own child. That benefits the child as well and helps the human brain form in a different way. Children need to know their father. We’re still working on that and it’s coming along.
Back to the cookies, men have picked up all of women’s natural science skills too and gained on it! Many men are creative chefs, are in the kitchen and love to cook and bake. I’m happy about that as I really don’t enjoy being in the kitchen anymore. And for ambitious, impatient women, sometimes the male partner makes a better parent. He’s more entertaining and more patient with his child while mom goes out and leads. That’s pretty common now too, even though her pay is 25% less than a male who does the same job, just because she’s a woman. Sexism is alive and well when it comes to money.
But it isn’t all just Mom baking cookies anymore and that’s a good thing.
