My grandma's recipes haven't ever been measured simply by cups and tablespoons. She's made delicious treats with "a chookie chookie" of cinnamon and a "smidge" of nutmeg. I learned so much about baking and cooking from my two grandmas. They've taught me to love food and that sometimes the best recipes need just "a chookie chookie" of that last ingredient to make them extra special.
I hope to inspire you to whip out the baking pans and measuring cups to create some of your own homemade deliciousness.
Definition: A chookie chookie
loosely translates into two shakes of spice shaker, hence the double
"chookie". "Chookie" is pronounced like "cookie" with a "ch".
