E.L.Fudge: The Cookie Test

The Keebler Elves have always done cookies right.  I could always count on them.  Until last week.

Cocoa Raspberry Muffins

So I'm not sure if these should be a breakfast, snack or dessert. Wow. Baking these will be the highlight of, I don't know, maybe forever.

E.L.Fudge; Coming soon.

So I have been working on this E.L.Fudge Cookie project.  I am still trying to create one more recipe for the big comparison. Here is an excerpt from the blog-in-progress:
     I picked up some cookies on sale, just in case I wasn't able to get any baking in the next two weeks or so.  I unpacked my groceries from the store and went about my life until I took the package out one day to have a cookie. I read this line on the package and was taken aback.  Has it been that long since I've eaten an Elven cookie, have the Elves let me down and changed their product? All these questions ran through my mind.  I decided to eat one.  They taste exactly as I remember.  What is WITH this label?
TBHQ. What is this all about. Has it been there all along? All of my childhood favorites were laden with crazy things that are unhealthy. MSG, Red dye #40, BHT, TBHQ....

I must do something about this.

Comfort Food. Chicken Soup. [update]

The smell of home made Chicken Soup makes me think of my grandmother that passed away.  I miss her.  I wish she could be around to meet my kids and teach me how to cook.  There's a joke in my family about Grandma and her dishtowels. She ALWAYS had one on her shoulder.  Maybe that's from raising TEN children and being the human dishwasher for countless years. Oh yes, I said ten kids. No misprint. She is an inspiration to my cousins and I.  If any of us are having a tough parenting day we think of Grandma. What would she do or say? She never complained about anything.
