Advice on How to Become a Babe (sort of)


Okay, so here’s the deal—you know that old saying ‘The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’? I think they had Man-Wonder in sight through the blades of their beater when they coined that phrase because nothing makes the man happier than a good meal  cookie. Even through countless diets, we have figured out ways to include them. (Perhaps a wee part of the reason why the diets never worked as well as they should have?)

And, as I’ve mentioned a million of so times, I’m a fan of whodunits. My consumption of them equals Man-Wonder’s cookie-inhaling abilities.

And, as any reader of whodunit knows, those devilish little pocketbooks are now filling their back pages with tips and recipes from home care to cookies.

Talk about a sweet bonus — since I believe that anyone who can write a delicious mystery has got to be able to offer up a delicious recipe too. And so far most of the ones I’ve tried do.

Which leads me to Cate Price and her ‘Sometimes a Great Notion’ shop series featuring the main character, Daisy Buchanan. Fun reads, and, in the book titled, Lie of the Needle, she offers up a ‘Kitchen Sink Cookie’ recipe which produces cookies worth their golden weight (and this dough is no lightweight by baking time).

Here’s a recipe so full of yum, I swear Man-Wonder had tears in his eyes when he turned to me and said, “You’re a real park babe!”





I’m still trying to figure out if that’s a compliment or not. . .



pssst – if you want the recipe try entering in ‘cate price and kitchen sink cookies’ or better yet, read her book – you’ll be glad you did.

pssssssst— This cookies freeze well and are as delicious frozen as they are fresh. No kidding.
