Cookie exchanges started in the thirties as a way for neighborhoods to come together and share family recipes for cookies with one another and add some sweetness to their children’s lives in a time when so many people had so little.

’Tis the season to be jolly…but you don’t have to let it get to your belly The holiday season is upon us and for a good majority of Americans, this means a two-month period of overeating and indulging in ultra-fatty foods.

Recently I posted a meme on Facebook which listed the “qualifications” of President-Elect Trump’s choice for Secretary of Education.
