    It won't, honestly, common sense is well good and dead. as noted earlier in this thread, the minority is now ruling the majority. Simply put the cry baby, greenie tree hugging, NIMBY type folks are winning. Nope, can't have nice things happening like cookies for the kids that are home baked, fresh and delicious. Oh no lets forbid anyone from having an open mind and open heart. Hell let's take it to the next level, have the state becomes the parents, take away the biological parents abilities to parent and discipline. Little Johnny can raise all the hell he wants and can't get a swat on the ass or sent to his room type stuff. Nope, society is going soft, stupid and absolving itself of all responsibilities and handing it all to government. psssst that BS is happening up here too.

    Dude, food allergies are much more prevalent than they were in the 'good ole days' of neighborhood women handing out cookies to little kids without a care in the world. I was only offering a reasonable, reality based reason of why some liberal, yuppy, atheist, democrat member of the communist party called the school and complained.

    And yet over the span of 15 years there seems to have been no issues with her cookies and some questionable food allergies seemly so prevalent these days.

    You know, there is one aspect we haven't explored. Perhaps her cookies were just really nasty! We've all had someone in the family that thought they were good cooks and we are always in fear of eating their food, but we eat it so not to hurt their feelings. One of my closest friends always used to invite me over for dinner when we were kids and his mom couldn't cook anything tasty if her life depended on it. I always had to fake a digestive ailment to get out of staying for dinner. His mom actually ended up calling my mom over concern of my well-being because I was always "sick".

    I'm just sayin'.

    I doubt that's it though. It would take a serious effort to F up a cookie.

    My friend's mom (same mom) used to take an entire roll of chocolate chip cookie mix and put it in a pie pan and cook it for ten minutes, which is what the instructions said. But the instructions also said to take half a spoonful of cookie mix for each cookie, NOT the entire roll into a pan. It was about 1.5 inches thick. We were basically eating raw cookie dough. We had to eat it with a spoon because it would never harden up. It did taste pretty good though. True story.

    Fair enough. I guess I should rephrase that. Anybody with a little experience in the kitchen would have to take a serious effort to F up a cookie. After 15 years of baking cookies and offering them to the school children, one would "think" that she had enough experience to not botch a batch up. I kind of took that one for granted.....
