The Cookie Lady Cafe has become our on line identity...
My inspiration is the poem:
Warning, When I am an old woman I shall wear Purple:
by Jenny Joseph in 1961, who lives in Minchinhampton, England
*__Josh and Jordy, who are my muses!
Actually, Josh & Jordy were very finicky eaters until six years old. I have never lived with a dog that would turn his lips up at his food. What to do? I began testing different good food embellishments (pureed chicken, tuna etc.) mixed it in with their kibble until; I decided to take a different and less stressful approach, because they would not be pleased with the same flavor two feedings in a row.
I bribed them, as I might a child. If you eat all of your food I will give you a cookie! Well-- that worked just fine but reading the ingredients on the bag from the store, I cringed. I began to bake, first making simple cornmeal & chicken broth cookies (like polenta), then one day I made some oatmeal cookies for myself; something I had been doing since I was a child. The cookies were a disaster, hockey pucks! Guess who loved those things, Josh & Jordy.
So I began adjusting the recipe until there was only what was necessary to make a hard & tasty treat. I spoke with their veterinarian and she was surprised that bribery worked and then she tried the cookie on her dog, he nearly licked the skin from her hand looking for more. Then I tested them with other dogs we met while on our morning and evening walks. I became quite popular with neighborhood dogs, during dog walks, that I began giving samples to dog owners to take home.
Eventually, many dog owners suggested that I sell the cookies and after selling in stores, paying far too much for shelf space, four years later here I am. I derive so much joy from making these cookies; each bag/kit of dough is like Christmas. Josh & Jordy still sit at attention, drooling while I make the dough hoping that something will fall for them to recover. They love it in the un-baked dough form.
***We have discontinued all unbaked products.
We hope that you and your family will enjoy our Cookie Dough and dehydrated meats as well!
