    The owner of a Dallas restaurant where Donald Trump Jr. had a photo taken of him and Sen. Ted Cruz holding a cake bearing a cartoonish image of Barack Obama has apologized to customers in the face of a threatened boycott. “Both Donald Trump Jr. and Ted Cruz were attending a birthday celebration of one of our regular patrons who rented out our venue for a private event,” Stephan Courseau, owner of Le Bilboquet restaurant, wrote on Facebook, adding that he felt “betrayed and sad.” “The party was not for either one of them nor was it any kind of...

The child's mother, Jessica Hart, 30, said her son, Jackson, came home from an afternoon outing at a local rock quarry complaining he was sick. He pulled at his chest and made motions that suggested he was choking. He had trouble keeping his eyes open.
  • Milano cookie battle: Pepperidge Farm sues Trader Joe’s over copyright infringement

    Pepperidge Farm is suing Trader Joe's for infringing on the trademark of its popular Milano cookie. According to a complaint filed on Wednesday in New Haven, Connecticut federal court, the grocery chain's version of a sandwich cookie, called Trader Joe's Crispy Cookies, look too similar to the Milano cookie and the products' sale is "damaging its goodwill and confusing shoppers," reports Reuters. Milano cookies, which were first introduced to the market in 1956, are crispy oval-shaped vanilla cookies with a chocolate crème filling. Over the years, variations have been introduced, including mint chocolate, orange chocolate and even pumpkin spice. The...

    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!

  • The great Girl Scouts cookie debate: should we give Girl Scouts a second chance?

    anuary 18, 2012 ( - 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...
