    An eruption of aggravation about what American schoolchildren can no longer eat in school cafeterias is never far away in the Obama era.Now, thanks to federal intervention that first lady Michelle has made her signature issue, students in all 11 taxpayer-funded public schools in Elyria, Ohio cannot enjoy the famous Elyria pink cookie anymore.This cookie is no ordinary cookie, according to The Chronicle-Telegram, the Cleveland suburb’s local newspaper.It’s a velvety, cake-like, scrumptious delicacy glazed with a huge dollop of sugary pink icing. Cleveland magazine dubbed the Elyria pink cookie the “Best Cafeteria Cookie” in 2009. Locals will even call up...

    Yesterday I had what is seemingly becoming a perennial 1-day December flu (as it has been the third time in the last four years I've had it at this exact time). I was able to get one post off, and then spent the rest of the day bed-ridden because any movement whatsoever made things much worse.I don't know why this happened. I did have a Christmas Holiday (Marxmas?) cookie the night before (below), but that couldn't be the problem. I mean a cookie can't make you violently ill...Right?Well, I'm feeling almost 100% today, so back to work I go!

    A small business owner refused to do a photo op with Vice President Joe Biden. Why? Because Chris McMurray works hard at building his own business and disagrees with statements made by President Obama that he didn't do it on his own, statements supported by Joe Biden. It's people like Chris and his wife Kelly that make America great! Crumb & Get It Cookie Company: http://www.crumbandgetit.com/
  • The great Girl Scouts cookie debate: should we give Girl Scouts a second chance?

    01/18/2012 4:03:31 PM PST · by Morgana · 45 replies
    anuary 18, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Cathy Ruse’s article yesterday urging pro-life and pro-family advocates not to buy Girl Scouts of America (GSA) cookies, both because of the organization’s ties to Planned Parenthood and an overall “progressive” agenda, has ignited quite the debate. Not only is the article LifeSiteNews’ most read article of the week, it has also drawn an enormous amount of commentary, both supportive and critical. Lots of readers agree that GSA’s ties to Planned Parenthood disqualify its cookie initiative from receiving support, while others argue it’s unfair to tar the whole organization with the actions of some GSA...

    This is a request for a recipe for a specific kind of cookie I had during a Christmas celebration. I think it's a kind of biscotti, because it was narrow and hard (but not too hard). I took it off a cookie plate, and because it was hard I dipped it in my coffee, and... wow. Just wow, was it REALLY good. But. Biscottis cost a fortune pre-made. And I don't even know where to go looking for this one. So I'm asking the Freeper cookiemakers if they have any ideas. It was a cinnamon/nutmeg flavor, I think. And it...

    This is the police. Step away from the cupcakes! A half-baked town-board member called the cops on a pair of pint-size entrepreneurs for selling their cookies and cupcakes in a Westchester park without a permit. "A lot of people go to eat lunch in the park," one of the bummed-out baker boys, Andrew DeMarchis (pictured), 13, of Chappaqua, told The Post yesterday. "So everybody bought dessert from us. When the cop first pulled up, I didn't know he was there for us. Then he walked up to us. I didn't know we needed a permit. I was more shocked than...

    A Nestle plant linked to an outbreak of illness has been shut temporarily, and the company said Monday that it expects to lay off more than 200 workers as a result. Preliminary results "indicate a strong association with eating raw prepackaged cookie dough," the CDC says. "It's likely that we're going to have some temporary layoffs at that facility," Nestle spokeswoman Roz O'Hearn said of the Danville, Virginia, facility that was churning out refrigerated cookie-dough products until Thursday. About 550 people work at the factory, but only about half of them work on cookie dough, she said. The rest work...

He is a former frat guy turned bartender, the kind of guy who willingly chooses to perform songs by Switchfoot and Collective Soul and proudly proclaims his undying affection for Our Lady Peace. He sings in an earnest, gruff, decidedly weathered voice, not unlike the kind you hear all over rock radio or in a...

The girls met on the ship as a formal way to send massive quantities of cookies sold throughout the year to the troops deployed overseas. Bill...

    NICOSIA (Reuters) - Cyprus international airport operations were disrupted when a man drove a car under parked planes and forced a taxiing airliner to change course to avoid a collision, authorities said. A chase to catch the driver, identified as a 30-year-old Greek, disrupted airport traffic Wednesday night. Control tower workers raised the alarm after seeing a car speeding under parked aircraft at Larnaca airport on Cyprus's southeast coast. A Cyprus Airways jet which had just landed had to change course to avoid collision. "The car was heading straight for us," the pilot said. The man was being questioned by...

    AMHERST, Mass. - A proposed bill that would curtail cookie and cake sales in Massachusetts' elementary and high schools has few fans among hungry teens here. "Kids don't want to buy carrots; they want to buy cake,'' Atayvia Sowers, a 17-year-old student at Amherst Regional High School, told the Daily Hampshire Gazette as she unwrapped a plate of brownies for an after-school bake sale sponsored by the student group People of Color United. Supporters say the bill, proposed by state Rep. Peter J. Koutoujian, D-Waltham, is aimed at curbing childhood obesity. It would prevent student groups from selling sweets on...

    How did the Kerry cookies crumble? By Sam Dealey To hear Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) tell it, his brief foray into the cookie business in the late 1970s gives him a leg up on the concerns of small-business owners. Earlier this month, the Democratic presidential candidate introduced his small-business program with vignettes from his own cookie-making experience. Yet all that experience kind of, well, crumbles, in the mind of David Liederman, another cookie entrepreneur. Liederman, the founder of the David’s Cookies chain, claims Kerry ripped off the idea from him. “The bottom line is he just stole it from me,”...

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- Pro-life advocates thought the battle was over when the Texas Bluebonnet Council of the Girl Scouts severed ties with Planned Parenthood, ending a decade of support for the abortion business' programs for youth and clergy. That changed when Kathy Cloninger, CEO of the Girl Scouts of America, appeared on NBC's "Today" show Friday morning to discuss the boycott. "The Girl Scouts in Waco, Texas, really made a decision based on local community context, they decided that in this particular situation that it would be in the best interest of girls and their families to discontinue the...

About half a dozen other students bit into cookies that apparently had been hit with overspray and -- like the teacher -- coughed at the bitter taste and strong odor...

The offending endearment resulted in the arrest of Frank J. Iula Jr., a computer...
