I’ve found baking is my jam. I like cooking, don’t get me wrong. But, as someone who wasn’t quite comfortable with recipes that required me to determine amounts of things on my own, I found baking and its reliance on exact amounts to be comforting. Jess bought me a book with the best cookies recipe from Gourmet magazine from each year of the publication’s run, 1941-2009. So we decided to go year by year and bake each recipe. First up, 1941 (Cajun Macaroons).
