“CONSIDERATE means, I waited until you got home so we could lick the bowl together.”
‘Tis the season of cookies!
Put on your aprons so we can mix up some butter, sugar, flour, eggs, vanilla and baking soda in our blue striped bowl. See, I waited for you to get here so we could lick the bowl together and sample some of the heartwarming cookie-centric definitions in Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s brand new book, Sugar Cookies: Sweet Little Lessons on Love (HarperCollins, 2009)!
Just released in October, Sugar Cookies is the third installment in Rosenthal’s New York Times bestselling series, following Cookies: Bite-Size Life Lessons (2006) and Christmas Cookies: Bite-Size Holiday Lessons (2008).
I love all of them (I like to keep my cookie jar well stocked). In Sugar Cookies, Rosenthal defines 22 words that are associated with love — all its little nuances, and some of the different ways people show it.
