One of the things I love the most about having ventured into the world of blogging is getting the opportunity to interact with so many people from all over. More than a few times I’ll be telling B about a fab cookie recipe that “so-and-so” made, and he’ll think I’m talking about someone we know in real life. Ehhrmmm, actually they’re a blogger, we don’t really know them, but that’s totally okay because they’re the reason we have cookies baking in the oven at this moment. A win-win for us all.
I’m also truly amazed at how many countries pop up on my stats page. The fact that someone halfway around the world is reading about the hot chocolate I drank in December completely blows my mind.
What else blows my mind? That rainbow cookies seem to fly seriously under the radar outside of the NYC-metro area! Or that’s my working theory, anyway. Growing up in NJ, rainbow cookies were a fixture in every bakery I visited. Even the supermarkets carried them! Looking back I assumed everyone tucked into one or five of them on holidays or occasions, but I realize now that’s not the case in the slightest. I even tested my theory here in California with some coworkers, and the evidence supports my hypothesis. One mention of rainbow cookies and they looked at me like I had three heads.
Geez! Anyway, I’m glad to have introduced some of you to my absolute favorite cookie. In the spirit of “favorites”, I have
a few many more from the bakery department. Next up – onion rolls. Or at least a super quick, impossibly simple version of them.
