Sick of beef jerky? "Trade it in
" for a dark chocolate oatmeal cookie. Yes, it's a promo from Kashi, but at least their email is opt-in instead of opt-out. And they're mailing out free cookies, bless their souls.

Ahh, the quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie recipe.
stands as the benchmark: but are there better? Many think so: Sherry Yard
, David Lebovitz
, the folks at Cooking Illustrated
, Martha Stewart
, Hillary Clinton
, beloved New York bakeries
, intrepid webloggers
. Alton Brown
in an episode
of Good Eats
shows how to get them thin
, or chewy
try to ferret out the best
of this american icon. Web recipe sites have their own favorites
Some people swear by secret ingredients: cornstarch
(which has cornstarch in it), oats
, great chocolate
. Two thirds of Americans prefer their chocolate chip cookies "nutless."
Others find technique
of greatest importance. Is there any end to this quest
for one of baking's holy grails

Pay It Forward.
Rather than sharing in a fun night of drink, dance and cursing with their teenage pals, two girls make cookies for their neighbors . A surprise gift of oven-fresh cookies and homemade hearts decorated with "Have a great day!". Priceless, you say? Try $900.

Cookie the clown
died yesturday. My favorite clown of the long running 'Bozo Show' recorded in Chicago.
"I am the luckiest guy in the world to have worked at a job I loved, and I'm going to miss it dearly," Brown said upon his retirement in 1994.

seems to be over a year old, but it's news to me. Did you know that cookies set on international domains (those ending in generic things like co.uk or co.nz) can be read by other servers
within those top level country domains? Scary stuff if you're using even the latest versions of Netscape on international sites.
