Food should be fun.


Food should be fun.
Thomas Keller

“…steam was generated beyond the power of the canister to endure.

As a natural consequence, the canister burst, the dead turkey sprang
from his coffin of tinplate and killed the cook forthwith.”
News report of an early canning industry accident (1852)
The process of creating an all-church cookbook should also be fun and safe.

So far it has been fun, safe and tasty.

Marsha and I sorted out (July 2006) the basic cookbook details over a wonderful meal of roast beef salad (which included strawberries) topped with homemade blue cheese dressing. Snickerdoodle cookies completed the meal.

Snickerdoodle cookies always remind me of Gram, my husband’s grandmother. Whenever we visited, she’d have a fresh jarful of these lovelies waiting for us to devour. For some reason, I cannot make a decent snickerdoodle.

Do you have a favorite memory about snickerdoodles or any other cookie?

I am a 58 year old female who just finished her BA in Theology/Christian Leadership. I was on the 30 year plan. I finally graduated seminary (2009)! . . . . I have two marvelous adult children that I am very proud of. . . . I have the extreme privilege of attending and working for the best church in No. CA. . . . I became a Christian 3 days before my 16th birthday. 35 years later I'm still growing. . . . AND . . . I'm going on a "God hunt;" will you join me? After all, how can I resist the One who calls ME daughter?

  1. Thanks for the tip.

    K is coming over on Friday for some special time. She has plans to make choclate (shapes).

    Perhaps we can make some snickerdoodles and some of your mom’s peanut butter choclate chip cookies.

  2. Whenever my mom would make chocolate cookies I would come into the kitchen and smell the aroma of the cookies as it came out of the oven and I would take one off the rack and eat the moist soft melty cookies that would melt in my mouth.

  3. I can so relate, Tamin.

    Except it is my sister’s chocolate cookies that would tantalize my noise and melt in my mouth.

    Thank you for sharing a cookie memory.
