thinking about valentine’s + drama drama everywhere

January 9, 2009 |  Category:   the biz


And not because I want to, but because it’s fast approaching and we have to. Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that I never really thought about. It’s pretty cute when you have kids, I guess, but when you’re in high school and your school has this thing where you can purchase a flower for somebody and then it gets publicly delivered to all the recipients during homeroom on Valentine’s Day for all to see, whether you get 1 flower or 5 or 10 or NONE, then yeah, it kinda sucks. In any case, here we are, thinking about hearts and flowers and flavors that are red and pink. This is a pink peppercorn linzer cookie that we’re experimenting on with different jams and Mark’s been trying out marshmallows in the shape of a heart. I also really want to get this idea going that I have for our etsy shop. Now that we sell across 3 different venues online, I’d like to experiment with our etsy store and try listing some non-food things (but still food-related), but it’s just a matter of finding the time.

We’ve gotten quite busy again, and this week has unfolded much drama that we are mulling over and still trying to figure out. Can’t say much more about it here except to say, we just want to sell cookies, why does it have to be more complicated than that?

    Did the “Drama Llama” come to visit? lol

    yeah i totally understand. If you could sell your receipes in your Etsy store for a small price that would be dandy as well. Not your cookie receipes of course! :LOL: I meant like the stuff you see here on the blog.

    I’d totally buy some heart marshmallows. I’m actually ready to buy some more from the store so if these are going to happen I might wait till they arrive ^_^

    And I just want to eat your cookies! 🙂

    These are lovely and I’m sure delicious to boot. I remember those red carnations on V Day in high school – or lack thereof – boo. :p

    do it, just make cookies. I came across your blog when browsing etsy and then etsy linked to this blog…you have great stuff, and speaking from experience, it’s easy to want to do it all, and make it all. but find the best product you have and what the people want and stick with it. try to stay focused and do what you like. and if it is something that other people are already doing, then just do it better. best of luck.

    This valentine cookie sounds and looks delicious! What a drag for high school students that don’t get a flower.

    Did you go to Bronx High School of Science? They did that there! Yeah – it sucked.
