The cookie monster they know
eats his vegetables :(

Could I spend my life
With someone who prefers the
Crunchy kind? Doubtful.

A (former) student of English, a lover of raisins, a user of comma splices. My spirit animal is an eggplant. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream. For that, I'm sorry.

I'll eat the heads off
one thousand gingerbread men
before sharing them.

Holiday baking:
Celebration food for us
heritage-less WASPs.

Green and red sprinkles
Gently dust spritz cookies
I will eat them all

chocolate macadamia,

Sweet bite of heaven!
I can't decide which to choose-
Oh heck, try them all!
