High Heels, Lingerie, Cookies

One of my personal mottos is “never underestimate the power of high heels and fabulous lingerie”.  You might think that means that I’m a real girly girl and that my feelings of self worth revolve around attracting members of the opposite sex.  Not so on either count.  First of all I spend most of my waking hours dressed either in baking clothes i.e. something not too hot and not too tight but just right for working in front of hot ovens and moving quickly – definitely not the place for high heels or lingerie – or dog-walking clothes which are pretty much ditto the baking clothes.  BUT I do love high heels and well made lingerie and I am always struck by how much more powerful, self assured I feel when I take the time to actually “dress”.   The reason I tell you this is because the cookie biz was recently honored by Cosmopolitan magazine, a serious girly girl magazine, that is pretty much all about high heels and lingerie but now also COOKIES!!  So, although you won’t find me flipping the pages wondering about “what a man really wants” or how to choose the right jeans for my shape, I am truly honored, delighted, and tickled to be included in Cosmo’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies in the USA.  Now maybe I need to go shoe shopping…………http://www.cosmopolitan.com/food-cocktails/g5977/best-chocolate-chip-cookies/

Cookie Love at the Denver Flea

For the past two days my right hand cookie assistant Sarah and I have been absolutely heads-down focused on baking up a humongous bunch of cookies for this weekend’s Denver Flea. If you’ve never been to a Flea then you need to rectify that:  its a giant party with music, booze, art, jewelry, and yes, absolutely cookies!!  We will be at booth 108 and we are bringing the best we’ve got – fourteen varieties.  The Flea is typically fast paced so stop by our booth early as selling out is our goal!!! http://www.denverflea.com
