Smoke King - Congradulations to you. I am glad to hear (read) that you made such a good showing.

I get a steady stream of "man bashing" e-Mail that my reiends find funny. I have been told that I am less masculine because I cook, like to cook. The payoff is always at the table. The smiles and clean plates are their own reward.

Not to mention all the great people here at DC.

I am so glad to see you succed and hopefully open some minds.

I find it very funny and ironic at the same time that the "outside world" will look at a man differently if he cooks or will doubt his abilities. And yet in the culinary world's "inner circle" it is us females who have a harder time proving ourselves capable... Very sad in deed. That right there should be proof positive that everyone is equal in the kitchen whether male, female, pro or home cook. It is the passion inside that counts!

Smoke King, vindication is sweet, isn't it?

However, I wouldn't rest on my laurels. Wow them again! Different cookies, different presentations!

Thanks everyone - Couldn't have done it without you! (does it sound like an awards show?)

As far as whats next, I'm still pondering. LPBier mentioned a Pumpkin/Choc chip cookie to me, so I googled that recipe, and it seems fitting for the season, and it sounds really good.

I do want to step out of my "comfort zone" a little, but then I realize that theres a reason Toll-house cookies have stood the test of time (that is to say properly made toll house cookies-thanks GRK)

So I'm not exactly sure just yet. Going to be 50 degrees tomorrow, so Mrs says I have to finish the Christmas Lights and caulk the windows

So I'll think it through while performing these menial chores, shop on Wednesday and bake on Thursday. Oh, and report back on Friday!
Thanks everyone!!
