All things Bush gets me so agitated that I cannot stand it. So munching one of Nancy's Own Cookies soothes my fevered brow and makes my heart sing. I like my Nancy's Own Lemon Ginger Shortbread cookies with a cup of fair trade and organic Earl Grey. Delicious! Nancy Newman the baker of these delectable cookies will be offering them in the Vaboomer Book Cafe and Tea Shop in early August when Vaboomer expands. Here is a bit about her.

She has also been the Executive Chef for corporations in NYC and NJ. She has also spent over two years substituting in public school system in grades K-12.

She bakes and sells cookies called Nancy's Own. They are: Lemon Ginger Shortbread, Cheddar Shortbread with Spiced Pecans, Crispy Chocolate Chip and Almond Crisps with Chocolate Mint Kisses. She attended La Varenne in Paris and worked at Peter Kump's and the Institute for Culinary Education in Manhattan for 15 years.
She was with King's in New Jersey for eight years. Her experience includes a stint at Ladies Home Journal and with an interior design firm in Manhattan, L.I., and Connecticut for two years. Nancy’s Own Cookies Lemon Ginger Shortbread cookies are a delectable 2-bite delight. Melt-in-your-mouth texture with a delicious ping of lemon and a back hint of ginger. Try with a steaming cup of Earl Grey. As a technical note for lemon ginger cookies-they are made with a coarse Caribbean "spiced" lemon sugar and crystallized ginger. This makes them extra flavorful, and crispy.
The Crispy Chocolate Chip cookies are made with a "secret " ingredient to make them richer and with organic chocolate chips. They would go fine with a steaming mug of fair trade organic java!
The Almond Crisps are topped with a chocolate mint kiss and are studded with chunks of almonds. The Cheese Short Biscuits are meltingly fine with aged Cabot cheddar and topped with spicy pecans. Rich and delicious with a tickle of heat.
The Homemade Healthbars are nutritionally packed with Irish
oatmeal, applesauce, orange zest, and raisins. At only 103 calories, 3 g.
fat, these bars will add fiber and be a good energy source.
I'll be on the road for the next 3-4 days on our way to MICH. I'll try to post from the road. That will be a new one for me.
In the meantime think sweet cookies--not Bush and his waning days of presidency.
