So What's With the Cookies?

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.

There may be some who stumble upon this blog expecting to find recipes.  While I love to cook (and eat!) and may share some favorites from time-to-time, that's not the primary purpose of this blog.  Still, I don't wish to disappoint...if you came for the cookies, maybe you'll stay for the tachlis (Hebrew for "substantive material").  Hence, I encourage you to check out this recipe for Momofuku Milk Bar's 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?)

The actual blogging on this site will be about Judaism, life, current events, and more.  I thank you for joining me on this adventure.
