How to make your house smell like fresh baked cookies.

June 25th, 2008 by katie

Chaos in the Kitchen is one month old today!  Thank you to everyone who checked it out, decided they liked what they saw and came back again.  This one is for you:

To infuse your home with the lovely aroma of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies you must do the following, EXACTLY.  First, take an entire container of chocolate milk mix powder and dump it on the floor, preferably on the rug.  Then take some paper towels and begin scooping up the powder and carrying it to the trash can scattering the dust throughout the house.  Did I mention the paper towels should be wet, creating a chocolate version of La Brea tar?  So you’ve got your wet paper towels, now you want to find the carpet and grind the chocolate tar into the fibers in as large an area as you can-really spread it out from the orginal spill location.  Then don’t tell anyone, just leave it for a few hours so its gets nice and hard, like cement.  You haven’t tried this yet?  Well definately do it, cause it smells uncannily like a batch of fresh-baked cookies in here. 

Here’s to another month of not getting the dishes washed or the laundry put away because I am writing.

    Nice tip! I’ve just been doing it the way my Mum taught me by baking a batch of chocolate chip cookies, but I’ll have to try your method ;)

    Seriously, your mom is old school, this is what the cool kids are doing. -Katie

    won’t this kind of, well, ruin the carpet? I’m sure it works and all, but I’ve been grounded enough recently to last a lifetime! I think I’ll try Tim’s mum’s way, even if it is oldschool! Although with my cullinary skills I doubt my mother will be too happy when I present her with a plate of charcoal flavoured, well, I’d like to call them cookies…

    Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little
    lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for
    a paid option? There are so many choices out
    there that I’m totally confused .. Any tips? Bless you!

About chaos

cha·os -noun 1. a condition or place of great disorder or confusion. My chaotic kitchen is the result of three kids, two adults, dog, cat, and fish, a food obsession, a wine drinking hobby, and too few hours in the day. Between trying to feed a family of five healthy, happy meals, watching my weight, saving my pennies, and staying partially sane I have picked up a few tricks along the way. So here they are: the very best tips, tricks, and recipes from my chaotic kitchen-to yours!
