Sometimes I want to feel like home. Sometimes I need a hug from my mom.

Cookies are like hugs, especially when that hug is coming from my own mother. My deep-rooted love affair with cookies stems from her. We're simple people when it comes to desserts; my mother is a strong believer in the medicinal properties of a fresh-baked cookie.

Let's talk about molasses cookies. They're my all-time favorite and one of my mom's favorites. I cannot, will not ever turn one down. Cozy and autumn-y and gingery and chewy. YOU, my friend, are a star among cookies.
