Gifts for Foodies, Part II: the Cookie Sutra

Saturday, September 10, 2005

Oh cookie!Do you have a sweet cookie in your life? Ok, how about a sweet and spicy cookie with a touch of bite? Look no further but I think we’ve got your stocking stuffer (errr, um, that wasn’t a euphamism) right here!

She's tickling his feet... that's it!The Cookie Sutra is a delightful little book of, sure enough, Kama Sutra poses acted out by ginger bread cookies- boys and girls. This book had my work place in giggles as I have been delighting in using my coworkers as a mini-test market… I have a great work environment!

The images are great, and the position captions are just as good. Each pose is referred to as a recipe, with a little bit of cookie talk thrown in. As in the toe grabbing Snake Trap, “two (cookies) become as one, yet the calorie count remains unchanged”.

The book even finishes with a little milk and cookies in the form of a ginger bread cookie recipe. However, we found one should use caution when modifying the cookie recipe to make them more spicy. If you choose, more spice may be added by increasing the amount of ginger and adding cayenne, however your cookies may take on a life of their own… Now that's a spicy cookie!I woke up the next morning to find the spicier of the cookies had taken on a life of their own! To avoid kinky cookie scenes I recommend you add vanilla to the Cookie Sutra recipe and don’t alter the spice amounts ;) If you do feel like experimenting… make sure to have a safe baking word.

This book has upped the ante on creative cookie making! Hmmm I wonder what it will take to convince my metal working friend Dave to make me special cookie cutters for my work Christmas Holiday Party?

I’d be delighted.

Of course, the cost depends on whether I’m making science nerd cookie cutters or … other kinds.

Jocelyn I’m so glad you’re enjoying the book so much! I knew you would, somehow…

And for anyone who can’t wait to wrap their arms/hands/legs around a copy of their very own, stay tuned to SHF this December when I will be giving away a dozen copies to the best decorated, most “spicy” gingerbread cookie lovers/bakers!

  • Excellent SHF idea! Can’t wait… hee hee!

Place a large trash can in the heart of the room, lined with plastic-type, to keep your office clean and set for any mishaps. And since you would assume, undertaking a DIY renovating job needs you to set apart any other activities to make time for organizing and then lastly painting and designing. Another option for embellishing the ceiling may be to engage the help of an artistic relative or friend to create a mural in the nursery for baby. An Old World look for grape and wine kitchen decor will often include wall texturizing as well, to make the walls look weathered and so European. Tint the federal government with the brand-new color also speeds up this particular covering method. This must be repeated with each different colour desired for the design with colour overlap producing mixtures of the colour basics.
