Snickerdoodles...don't do it!

Today's take it off tuesday post is a simple piece of advice:

If your 11-year-old daughter asks to make snickerdoodles and you allow her to do so (being the good mother you are and wanting to encourage her pastry-chef dream), you will end up eating at least half the batch and gaining two pounds in 48 hours. So don't let her anywhere near the kitchen!

(And if she accidentally adds 1/2 cup of baking soda instead of 1/2 teaspoon, don't let her start a new batch. Rather, let her make the mistake. Then you won't eat half the batch of cookies and the scale won't need to be recalibrated yet again...) --Emily

That is one funny, yet very true advice. :)
