Would you believe…. that one of My Kids is turning 17? 

Would you believe… for Christmas we adopted Max, a 9 year tabby from our local shelter?

Would you believe… my daughter suggested that instead of our normal My Kids’ Cookies sale for her birthday, we donate a portion of sales to PAWS of Bainbridge Island so that other pets like Max can continue to be cared for until they find their new home?

Would you believe… for all online orders placed from now through Friday, January 14th, we’ll be donating 17% of sales to PAWS?

Would you believe…you can get a free cookie for your dog? For local pet lovers, drop off canned or bagged pet food at our cookie shop during January. We’ll drop it off at PAWS for you and your donation will earn you a free dog cookie for your favorite pooch.  We’re located at 400 Winslow Way E., Bainbridge Island, WA.

Would you believe… I love my kids, cookies and pets?

Yes, the Fonz kissed little old me – cookie baker.

Henry Winkler came to Bainbridge Island last Sunday to read from his children book series (Hank Zipzer) about a boy with dyslexia.  And I was there handing out My Kids’ Cookies at the event and listening to him speak.

Words to describe him: intelligent, eloquent, funny, entertaining, adorable and engaging.

After speaking about himself, his childhood as a NYC kid in the public school system, his career, his family, Happy Days, and more, he read from his latest (and last) book in the series. Then he sat down to sign autographs.

Over 400 people of all ages showed up to hear him speak and at least half that number got in line for an autograph.  He took time with each person, posed for photos, chatted with the kids and was so very gracious.

Now to explain how I got my kiss.

I gave the Fonz a cookie.  I sent a double rich white chocolate cookie in a gift box back to Mr. Winkler before he was introduced.  While he was busy signing books, I stepped up to take his picture.  He turned to me.  This was our conversation:

Henry: “Hi there, Did you make the cookie?”

Me: “Yes.”

Henry: “Thank you, it was delicious.”

Me: (smiling like a loon.)

At the end of the book signing, I hopped on the line to get my book autographed and get a picture with him.  He pulled me towards him and planted a wonderful kiss on my left cheek.  Then he posed and I got my treasured photo.

Thank you Fonzie!!!

This weekend, My Kids’ Cookies is participating in Bainbridge IslandIf You Give A Mouse A Cookie Public Library’s first annual Edible Book Festival.

We’re baking up our version of “If You Give A Mouse A My Kids’ Cookie“.  We had loads of fun trying out this cake and a friend’s 3 little boys were my taste testers.  Who got the ear, who got the foot, who got the head?  These were things they all had to negotiate.  Entrance fee donations will be given to Helpline House.

On the next rainy day weekend, pull out your children’s favorite story and bake up a version of it.  They can be creative and make dessert for the family at the same time.
