Cookies for Cogdog

In tribute to Alan Levine’s mom, who passed away unexpectedly last weekend, we’d like to invite you to participate in Cookies for Cogdog. One of the wonderful things that Alan’s mom did was bake chocolate chip cookies every Sunday and then give them away to strangers. This Sunday, September 4th, we’re hoping to get people to follow in her footsteps. Bake some cookies and then brighten a stranger’s day by giving them away. Update: A second call for #cookielove for Sunday November 6. My mom’s temple is holding a memorial service for her at 1:30pm EST- my sisters and I will be doing our own rounds of cookielove baking this weekend (especially since I did not do it the first time around). Completely up to you to join in. Listen to Alyce explaining her cookie philosophy http://cogdogblog.com/wp-content/audio/mom-cookie-lady.mp3 PS since people are asking, mom used the Toll House recipe on the bag of Nestle Chocolate Chips, only adding chopped peanuts (and lotsa love). You can find the recipe at http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/original-nestle-toll-house-chocolate-chip-cookies/detail.aspx

Ways to contribute:
1. Bake cookies and give them away 2. Use the tag #cookielove 3. Share a narrative recipe for the collection 1. Please share the experience, either by taking a picture of your batch or telling the story about who you gave your cookies away to (on your blog or anywhere you like), or even just sending a tweet, instagram, anything! Many people are tagging their stuff #cookielove 2. Use the tag on Twitter, Flickr, your blog, etc.) to let cogdog know about it. If tweeting, also @ mention cogdog, if possible. Feel inspired to do all of these, and more

You can read more about Alan’s mom and her cookies at http://cogdogblog.com/2011/08/29/cookieladys-lastbatch/.

3. If you have a special cookie recipe that you are using please consider submitting it to @cogdog’s StoryBox: http://cogdogblog.com/storybox/ Instead of just listing the ingredients, consider creating a narrative recipe. This could be in any medium, but it would be wonderful if Alan could compile a physical book, an artifact of the love we have for his mom, and for his impact on our lives. He’s travelled all around to meet the people who’ve made a difference in his life, and this would be a nice way to share how much we appreciate him. - Story submitted to storybox! +NancyWhite Much of the cookielove has been collected at http://storify.com/cogdog/cookielove thanks everyone!
