Food Should be Safe & Fun Besides Tasty

. at . 5 comments

Information from Thomas Keller . . . 


“…steam was generated beyond the power of the canister to endure.

As a natural consequence, the canister burst, the dead turkey sprang

from his coffin of tinplate and killed the cook forthwith.”


News report of an early canning industry accident (1852). The process of creating an all-church cookbook should also be safe. 

So far it has been fun, safe and tasty.
Marsha and I sorted out the basic cookbook details over a wonderful meal of roast beef salad (which included strawberries) topped with homemade blue cheese dressing. Snickerdoodle cookies completed the meal.


Snickerdoodle cookies always remind me of Gram, my husband’s grandmother. Whenever we visited, she’d have a fresh jarful of these lovelies waiting for us to devour. For some reason, I cannot make a decent snickerdoodle.

Do you have a favorite memory about snickerdoodles or any other cookie?

    “For some reason, I cannot make a decent snickerdoodle.”

    Neither could we, until we tried adding extra flour to the recipe. . . Perhaps you should give it a go.

    Thanks for the tip.

    K is coming over on Friday for some special time. She has plans to make choclate (shapes).

    Perhaps we can make some snickerdoodles and some of your mom’s peanut butter choclate chip cookies.

    Whenever my mom would make chocolate cookies I would come into the kitchen and smell the aroma of the cookies as it came out of the oven and I would take one off the rack and eat the moist soft melty cookies that would melt in my mouth.

    I can so relate, Tamin.

    Except it is my sister’s chocolate cookies that would tantalize my noise and melt in my mouth.

    Thank you for sharing a cookie memory.
