Jennifer Garner has an amazing “Pretend Cooking Show” on her Instagram page, and although she calls it “pretend” many can’t help but notice how real her show appears to most of us!
In this endearing post, the actress shares a recipe from her childhood neighbor, Marge. “I was raised by all of Rolling Hills neighborhood, but my neighbors Marge and Ed had pole position. Why? 1. They were in charge of the extra key 2. Marge’s Gingersnaps. I can still smell their cozy home, and I am happy to share Marge’s recipe with you. These, by the way, are the perfect autumnal bake-with-your-toddler cookie! Also—this dough works beautifully (says my mom) rolled out for gingerbread men and their houses. 🎃👵🏻👻🕸🍁♥️ #PretendCookingShow”
