I'll Bet They're Crunchy

For several years I've subscribed to the Food Network's 12 days of cookies email, where for the first 12 days of December you get a cookie recipe a day, delivered straight to your inbox, for free.

Day 1 was interesting.  The email's subject line was "Ina Garten's Shortbread Cookies."  I was all, "Huh??" I clicked through and quickly scanned the ingredients list, looking for ingredients like blue cohosh and placenta.  It appeared to be a completely normal recipe, much to my surprise.  Then I realized...

I was thinking of Ina May Gaskin, famous midwife and homebirth advocate, not Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa.

Ina May Gaskin - probably makes terrible cookies

Ina Garten - probably didn't give birth on a farm
But if Ina May ever starts making cookies, I have the perfect cookie cutter for her!

I guess you really can buy ANYTHING if you just know where to look!
