If I ran the world...

If I ran the world, oatmeal raisin cookies would NEVER contain coconut. Ever. Ugh.

Election rewards

My polling location is quite near the Reading Terminal Market, so I stopped in and visited the Flying Monkey Patisserie to buy an "I Voted Today" treat.

Their other "election conversation cupcakes" read "McCain? Seriously?" and "Sarah Scares Me."

Victory is sweet. Yum.

Pre-Made Cookie Dough



I have a new post up on Babble today about the best kinds of pre-made cookie dough. The doughs were evaluated based on taste, ease of use, and kid-friendliness.

My son and I like to do kitchen projects together, but complicated cookies are well beyond his one-year-old cooking skills. Instead, we had a ton of fun baking store-bought cookie dough together. A couple of brands (notably the 600-lb Gorilla and Wholly Wholesome) were so easy that he could even 'make' the cookies himself by putting them on the cookie sheets.

Cookie dough comes in refrigerated and frozen varieties; if you happen to be a germ spaz, you may prefer the frozen. Or, you can freeze and thaw the refrigerated dough.
