I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

Today Santa left the food section of the Minneapolis Tribune containing some prize winning Christmas cookie recipe’s on my front porch! Whoever left them thank you, I always like to try one or two new recipes during the holidays! I have decided that since we have cancelled our family Christmas get together I am going to send each family a package of goodies so this week I will be in my kitchen. I wasn’t going to put many decorations up this year but when I got started I was on a roll so even though it will be just the two of us it will look festive!
I have several variations of the good all American Chocolate chip cookie but a couple of weeks ago a long time friend sent me a new take, I would say that this Chocolate chip cookie rates to be a Holiday cookie try it and see what you think!

3/4 tsp. salt

1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 Tablespoons Bailey’s Irish cream liquor
