Raisins never go in cookies.  If I wanted a raisin, I would eat granola or something.

I mostly feel the same way.

Raisins should only ever go in one thing - the garbage.

Pretty sure chocolate is higher on the power food list than raisins...Plus, it just tastes better, and should never be included in a recipe for cookies.

I'll buy that for dark chocolate. But not regular, much too high sugar content. Though I can't stand the taste of either. <_<

That's because your taste buds have become accustomed to that leather that you like (or as you call it, turkey 'bacon').

I don't mind raisins, but in cookies, I do prefer chocolate. But hey, the carrot muffins that I've made twice in the last month needed raisins. The only ones I had on hand were these black maroo raisins, and holy moly, these are the sweetest, juiciest raisins I've ever had. And they're big! They are so good!

You know what juicer and bigger than a raisin?  A grape.  And they taste infinitely better than raisins.

Raisins don't go in muffins or cake either...

Maybe trail mix, however, as Tex Jr. likes to say, "Trail mix is made up of M&Ms and disappointment..."

I like grapes too. But I don't think they would have worked as well in baked form.

Mmmm. Cap'n Kirk.

And that just reminded me that it's Weds. Shoot.

I want to be like Captain Kirk
Get up everyday and love to go to work
Don't want to be like Mr. Spock
Want to kick out the jams and rock the block

This Wednesday is so slow.

Also, I recommended White Claw to some coworkers, one of whom who had never heard of it before.

I've also been introducing it to friends and family at various gatherings. Usually tends to be a hit! :D
