When I was a kid, my family would occasionally rent an RV and go on camping trips with a few other families. We traveled in a caravan, and my father's CB "handle" was "cookie monster." These sorts of things happen when your last name is Cook.
Later, when I worked at a summer camp, I adopted the nickname "Cookie" for myself. In various settings over the years, the name has occasionally resurfaced. Add to that my love of Sesame Street's Cookie Monster, and you'll begin to understand some of the motifs on this blog.
Compost Cookies, which are excellent (you can find other versions of the recipe online which are a bit more straightforward, but this is direct from the original chef, via Oprah, so how can you go wrong?)
In the next day or so, I hope to dive in to the actual blogging, about Judaism, life, current events, and more. I hope you'll join me on this adventure.
