Day 7: Katie and Cherry, Pistachio, + Oatmeal Cookies

Today, you go on an adventure.

Katie has been my dearest friend for most of my life. She pops up on the blog every once in a while in stories [1] (and sometimes pictures [2]). She is the coolest person ever. She has taught in Chicago Public Schools for the past ten years, which leaves me in awe of both her and her commitment to educating young people. Katie is also one of my favorite writers. Writing comes more naturally to her than to anyone I have ever met. It is a real gift. She recently started an awesome blog which she hasn’t been sharing with anyone. That seems like a shame and so I want to help change that today.

It is called The Fundmentalist [3], and is her space for trying to figure out the things she doesn’t understand in this world, fundamentals that she somehow missed. The list is diverse and includes things such as sponges, Madeline Albright and the G-spot. Each post brilliantly written and each topic explored through a range of methods—interviews [4], experiments [5], musical numbers [6]. As usual, I am totally impressed, my favorite post, so far, is this one [7].

One of the items on her list was cookies. She had never made cookies, and so she asked for my help. I’ll let her tell you the rest and share a recipe for some very tasty Cherry, Pistachio and Oatmeal cookies that we baked together a couple of weeks ago.

Post and Recipe HERE [8]. See you back here tomorrow! Say hi to Katie for me. ; )
