Herbs in the Cookie Jar (Part 2)

In the 1995 article that mom penned, which now appears online in Mother Earth Living here, the story continues that, as a young girl, Nancy always lamented the fact that the cookie jar was filled with compost and not cookies. Well, mom's words describe it best: When she was growing up, my third daughter, Nancy, was the one who bounced home from school shouting, “Let’s make cookies, Mom!” I think I frustrated her often by using the cookie jar for kitchen composting; maybe that’s why, even today as a busy businesswoman herself, she’d still rather bake cookies than just about any other activity I can think of. She began developing cookie recipes at a fairly young age. In her tearoom, she is known for her rich sweets.

Although Nancy is frequently baking cookies for the tearoom (going on 27 years now!), she can imagine her mother might chuckle over the fact that more often than not, there is a compost bowl filled with food scraps instead of a cookie jar on the kitchen counter.

Love this story about Nancy and making cookies instead of compost in the cookie jar.
