See's Cookies by Chef and Sommelier




Wife finally finished all her CNY baking of about 10 different types of cookies, sorted and packed  into gift boxes ready to be given away. We are not going to start a cookie business any time soon but thought it would be fun to give the cookies a name and print some labels to adorn the cookie containers. 

Hmmm, using our family name, we decided to name our cookies See's Cookies! So very "creative" right?! :) Oh and I thought this would be a good opportunity to promote my blog which I have been keeping a low profile from the elderly relatives and friends.

See's Cookies are made with lots of love and not for sale but for family's own consumption and sharing with relatives and friends. So you have to be someone very special to us to receive the jar of love. 

Our cute friend, Jazz, from Canada commented on Facebook: See's Cookies - Can See, Cannot Eat! :)
