I Dream of Genie.....okay, I really dream of COOKIES
From 2005-until the spring of 2007 my husband was travelling stateside extensively. Being the trooper he is, this allowed him to go on wild goose chases for savory morsels in other states that I saw on Food TV or read about in magazines or saw on Oprah.........you get the gist. Thanks Honey, I love you! Lately I have been craving Oatmeal Cookies from Fox and Obel in Chicago. These are hands down some of the best cookies around.....even with raisins and dried fruit in them. Great thing is---these cookies fall into my "Is it a fruit or is it a dessert rule". In my obsessive food world if it has fruit in it then it can't be a dessert so you are eating healthy. Cherry Pie is a fruit, lemon pound cake is a fruit, oatmeal cookies with raisins-- of course a fruit you silly, pumpkin banana mousse tart...........DUH, that has a fruit and a vegetable. Yes, my eyes get a bit misty while reminiscing about those delectible cookies, and they will always hold a special place in my heart. Perhaps one day our paths will cross again.
