Arrived: Homemade COOKIES (and soap)!!!

Yay! I am the happiest cookie monster around. Or perhaps the only one around. In my last post, I half-jokingly shared that I was willing to pay [big bucks] for someone to send me homemade cookies, especially Dreena's cookies. Even though I was not seriously requesting cookies, I was willing to accept! I didn't think anyone was really going to offer. Lucky for me (for personal selfish reasons), Jody offered to bake and send me some. After all, she was planning on making some of Dreena's cookies anyway and we shared the batch.

I was so pleased and grateful to have this offer, especially since I haven't had homemade cookies since before last December. We were in touch late last week and she sent them off on Monday. They arrived early today (so quick for across the country) and I have to force myself to savor them and not eat them all today. Because I can eat 'em all!!! They arrived in a re-used cocoa cannister, not the one shown here (way to go Jody!). Along with the cookies were her homemade vegan soaps. Three flavors and they all smell wonderful. If you want soap, good smelling, good vegan-ingredients soap, contact Jody.

And here's a close up of the yum-ness. No messing around here. Thanks Jody!!!

PS... one day I hope to show you all cookies that came out of my own oven.

Thought I'd pop out from lurking status and introduce myself. I'm a new vegan who has been really inspired by your blog! So... thanks :)

Wow! Jody totally rocks. I'm going to secretly hope my oven breaks! Those cookies look delicious. Drooling as I type.

Wow, yum for cookies...

So I looked up your sloppy lentils recipe that I've heard so much about, and it looks amazing. Never tried kale before though. Maybe I'll make it this weekend...?

Love your blog! I think I'll be vegan in a matter of weeks--really in a matter of a week and a half. All you vegan bloggers have really inspired me--what a world of alternatives are out there. Thanks!

Dori said...

Awesome of Jody to do that and vegan soap also, wow. I'm happy for you and glad that you made the positive comment about considering oven use in the future. no fear :)

I must say few things would make me happier than cookies showing up in my mailbox! Sweet. I just noticed you have SCI linked in your sidebar. I just saw them at the Greek theater in LA last month with Ratdog. Awesome show, I do love live music.

Mary said...

Ooooh I love cookies. Jody if you wanna send me cookies you can! *wink wink*

Vicki said...

Wow, Jody ROCKS! What a sweetie. What are the 3 flavors of soap?

Vicki said...

ps: double the admiration for Jody because she reused her cocoa cannister! at a restaurant today, i saw that they put the kids' crayons in old tomato sauce cans. love, love, love that.

I'm a cookie fan too. Wouldn't it be great if cookies just magically appeared any time you even thought about them? I'm thinking about them now...

Pure Zuke, welcome! I already welcomed you on your blog and it's a great one. Keep it up and keep visiting.

VV, Jody does rock but don't secretly hope that. It's better just to make your own if you want, whenever you want and however you want. Me, I'm not complaining, these were great (were... there's 2 left!)

Laura, funny, why a week and a half? Whenever it is, as soon as you do it that's wonderful. Good luck and keep visiting. Try kale steamed or in the lenties, it's nice.

Dori, yep it was a positive comment (hee hee even from me) but I'm still freaked out. I hope I don't get up to a year... Want to come over and oven-sit?

Kleo, we're both so fortunate.

Shan... SCI is great. I've seen them once for a 3-day show in Sedona. It was awesome. I also like Ratdog, Bob Weir's hot.

Mary, I love cookies too.

Vicki, I loved the reused container too. The flavors are myrrh, woods and lemon vitiver.

Vegan cookie monster, first I like your name. Second, I love anything with magic and cookies.

Amy, the cookies ARE amazing.

Julie, I'm glad the blog's better.

Exemp... for now, raw cookies. Stay tuned. You may have to wait a while.

Urban Vegan, right on!

Katherine, thanks for finding my blog! Yours is great too and I am happy that you are a new vegan (vegan in general) and especially that you go to Green. I love it there (so does Julie, see above). I commented to you on your page about the other stuff. Thanks for visiting... are you moving back to Cali or staying around here?
