You Won’t Go Wrong To Send Cookies As Birthday Gifts To Someone You Love

27 Apr

cookiesYour Mom’s cookies will always be the best for you. Or so you thought until you had your first taste of your wife’s chocolate chip cookies. You then began to love cookies more than ever and you resolve to feed that cookie monster within every time you get the opportunity (the truth is, you vowed to create opportunities instead of just wait for them to come!) No one will argue with the fact that cookies are good to eat. Dieters have been known to succumb to temptations and break their will when presented with the best smelling and tasting cookies they ever saw. It seems that no soul on earth can resist taking a nibble of a peanut butter cookie or a apple filled cookie. Everyone turns to a cookie monster every time they come into the presence of a tray full of sugarcookies or brownie filled cookies. And for the health nut, there are oatmeal cookies too.

You won’t go wrong to send cookies as birthday gifts to someone you love. They are sure to appreciate a tray or a basketful of rocky road cookies or butter almond crunch cookies. Cookies are one of the most comforting foods around as everyone will always have memories of Mom’s cookies baking in her favorite oven back in their old hometown. Children’s parties will never be complete without cookies. Ice cream and cake may be standard treats for birthdays but cookies will have their own special place in children’s hearts. There will always be room for one more cookie in a child’s stomach, anytime, anywhere.

Cookie cutters kept on growing in popularity as more designs were created. During the 1970’s and into the 1980’s more people became domestic and worked on their own crafts at home, including decorated cookies. During this era we also witnessed an increase in spendable income, allowing people to spend more on such hobbies. As with many other products, there was a trend during the last quarter of the century to make manufacturing less expensive, and more cookie cutters were being manufactured in places like Malaysia, China, and other countries. However, cookie cutter production somehow survived being moved completely out of country and there are still many cutters being produced in America.

Now you can find cookie cutters in just about any shape or size. Copper is now a commonly used material for cookie cutters, but plastic and tin are still the most commonly found. If you can’t find a particular shape, there are cookie cutter companiesthat will create a custom shape for you. Likewise, you can buy your own kit to design and create your own cookie cutter.

While cookie cutters are being bought for the obvious purpose of cutting out sugar cookies, there is also a lot of people that search for, bid on, and buy cookies simply to collect them. There is even an official Cookie Cutter Collectors Club (CCCC) that meets regularly and has a big following. There are at least a couple of Cookie Cutter Museums, and enthusiasts even enjoy a “National Cookie Cutter Week” (started by the CCCC) during the first week of December. Of course this marks the beginning of the biggest time of the year for decorating cookies: the Christmas season. Even if you don’t care for the holiday, who can resist biting into a yellow frosted star cookie?

If you plan in baking your frozen or chilled dough logs, get them out of your chiller or freezer. Your small cookie mixture rounds which you just made are now ready for baking although they might need additional minutes inside your oven. The small dough logs you created must go through defrosting first before you cut and bake them. You may defrost your cookies on a clean counter top or through a microwave.

Freezing your cookies & cookie dough mixtures is always good just in case you get those cookie cravings.

Try to thinking about buying storable food

2 Oct

There are infinite reasons on why there would be shortage of food, but most people do not believe those reasons are possible. Reality is that these reasons are more than possible, almost predictable. If you are not prepared for what is coming, I suggest you think about storing food, and being prepared for the worst. Storing food can make a difference for you and your family. It would keep you immune to a food shortage. The more food is kept the more time it lasts. I suggest you go out there and buy canned food or food in boxes, bottled water and there are companies out there who sell some pre-made food, especially designed for storage.

If you do not save anything to eat already you may want to start thinking about buying storable food now that times are not so bad. Storing food is like putting money in a safe. In times of an emergency and food shortage, food will become one of the most valuable possessions you have, if not the only. If you want to store food all you need to do is go to your local grocery store and buy canned food and bottled water. Dry foods are also good for storage, most of the time they come in boxes or some kind of plastic container. There are companies out there making storable food now. Look them up online they offer very good quality products especially designed to store.

Make sure you look at the expiration dates and make sure they last long enough. Storing food can become your reliable source of food when food is not available. Storing food does not cost much and it would help you immensely if you do not have money to buy anything to eat or produce is scarce and cannot be bought. Storing food could save you and your family’s life in a time of need. With the economic collapse and dollar devaluation, now is the most important time to stock up on items to eat, you can also take advantage of our business opportunity to make an extra income as well as benefit from home business tax deductions.Being able to obtain produce all the time is what blocks us from realizing that maybe food might become scarce one day.

With this things stored you won’t have to worry about what to eat when it is scarce.Food and water are things we need to survive on day by day. If a day comes upon us were these elements would not be available it would be chaos. It is better being prepared and have food stored for when needed than having to pay the consequences for not having it. Storing food would only take you a bit of time, space and money but in the end this effort would all be worth it.
