Laura, Teresa, and the Cookie Cook-Off

From the print version of the Atlantic comes this amusing story:

"Each election year since 1992 the presidential candidates’ wives have submitted cookie recipes to Family Circle magazine, whose readers then voted for a favorite. So far the cook-of winner has always been the next First Lady. Laura Bush’s recipe this year is for oatmeal chocolate-chunk cookies, Teresa Heinz Kerry’s for pumpkin spice. But the predictive effect of the cook-off may not hold this time, because Teresa recently revealed that she doesn’t even like pumpkin-spice cookies; a panicked staffer submitted the recipe on her behalf after Family Circle determined that Teresa’s first recipe (for ’Yummy Wonders’) simply didn’t work."

"Yummy Wonders." I love that. Do you think that might have been a favorite back in her native Mozambique?

So many comments, so little time.

Perhaps "Yummy Wonders" worked before they didn’t. Or maybe, Theresa liked pumpkin spice cookies before she didn’t. Or, well, you get the idea.

So, the Pumpkin Spice cookies that Ter-ay-za threw over the White House fence were not even *hers*?

I guess that’s OK, since Marie Antoinette is so "above it all."

John, take your cookies and shove ’em!

How edifying.......

Now that I’ve quoted Teresa tongue-in-cheek, I’ll refrain from a Dick Cheney quote!
