After getting in trouble for sassing his mother at the mall, my 4 year old nephew told his mom,

“I’m only 4. I can’t be good all the time.”

This line has become a family favorite and I use it especially when I’m about to dive into something delicious.  And you can spare me the lecture about labeling foods good & bad. I get it….mmmm k? Relax, it’s a joke. I think it’s pretty darn funny that a 4 year old would blame his behavior on his age. So what’s my excuse for having cookies on the blog today? Well, I love milk and cookies. And sometimes a girl has to treat herself. In moderation, of course.

This my friends, is one of those times.

Did you know that June is dairy month? That is another reason why I just had to make cookies. Because in my opinion, it doesn’t get much better than a glass of cold milk with a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie.

In honor of dairy month, I want to take a moment and give a shout out to a few of my favorite dairy farmers and their blogs. Check out this adorable story about how Adriane met her husband, Chris.  I had to laugh when Adriane wrote on her blog last week about walnuts tasting like tree bark. Sorry Adriane, but I totally disagree. Walnuts taste like heaven, which is why I added them to this recipe. We can agree to disagree.

I also adore Janet Bremer and her blog. I met Janet in person a few months ago and have really enjoyed following her journey through dairy farming.  She provides a great perspective about life as a dairy farmer, and is always willing to answer any question. If you have any concerns about dairy farming practices, she is a great person to connect with.
