The Ultimate Compliment

One thing I have never been known for is my cooking, but lately I have been focusing on eating healthfully and baking and cooking from scratch. Where did the term "from scratch" come from anyway? When I told my ten-year-old son I had baked chocolate chip cookies from scratch, he looked at his cookie and then back at me and didn't seem quite sure whether he wanted to keep eating it or not. The twelve-year-old surprised me, though. As I was sitting out on my deck reading, he strolled out with a cookie in his hand and sat next to me and exclaimed, "Dude! You should enter your cookies in the Kankakee County Fair. You would win!" *grin*
