A Perishable Surprise in the Mail for the One-Legged Gal
I’m currently on Day 11 of the 42 days I have to be completely off of one foot, due to the most recent surgery. (I’ll be fine, don’t worry, just no more high heels, ever. Which is a “first world problem,” if ever there was one.) On Day 5, I had a wonderful surprise in the mail from The Girl Who is Always Hungry, AKA my bonus daughter (daughter-in-law).
From Cookie Hustle 254: “Feel a Latte Better!”
This was such a touching and thoughtful get-well gift. Custom, handmade, individually double-wrapped sugar cookies in two styles, a cheery, bright summery ice cream cone, and the cheeky “Feel a latte better” coffee cup. She’s got talent! And she has just started a new cookie business in Waco, TX, called Cookie Hustle 254.
Not Our First Cookie Hustle Rodeo
Of course, we already knew she had talent – you remember the Christmas cookies, right? The Girl Who is Always Hungry brought us 5.5 lbs. of homemade Christmas cookie goodness. Not a crumb was left.
The Cookies Were Divine
Back to my Get Well cookies. They were not only works of art, they were GOOD: moist, rich and more flavorful than regular sugar cookies. And even after their time with the US Post Office, they were solid; only one tiny blue sprinkle was out of place.

Photo Shoot Outtakes with Cat and Orchid
I tried to take great pictures of these amazing cookies, but I have so much to learn about food styling and food photography. Here are a couple of outtakes, just for fun.
More to come as The Girl Who is Always Hungry continues to make cookie magic. And just for fun, here are pics of a few more of her cookie triumphs (all photos by Megan Glover on Cookie Hustle 254).
