Make Cookies Not War

“Think what a better world it would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap.”
–quoting Robert Fulghum in 1987 at Middlebury College

When I wrote the "Armed and Dangerous" post about my new cookie gun, both Allison of The Lark and Potty Mouth Mama posted "Make Cookies Not War!" in the comments. I like that slogan.

Okay… I'm not one to get involved with very many big causes. Taking care of my own family is really about all that I'm capable of. However, if I can use Sugar and Meringue to promote peace and friendliness without being too pretentious about my own less than charitable ways… that'd be pretty cool!

I've started a "Make Cookies Not War" flickr group where you're welcome to post your own homemade cookie photos or ideas about "baking for peace", and (in an effort to be more charitable) I'm going to sell vintage cookie cutters with "Make Cookies Not War" tags attached in my etsy store (as soon as I get some cute tags designed). I'll donate the profits to Save the Children.

Great idea for a flickr group. I've now signed up and hope to post some yummy cookie photos soon.

LA, sorry, I don't ship cookies right now. Maybe someday!

I absolutely love that poster. Is it a poster? If it's not you might as well make some and sell on Etsy! What a pitty we don't live close! Do you think you could ship to Greece?!
Oh and I know the perfect accompaniment to your efforts: a nice glass of lemonade, perhaps? I have one waiting for you to pick up over at my blog!

Well, if you were making the cookies we'd all just sit and smile, all day, every day!
We are in love with your owl here in the kitschen!

That's funny - sheesh, I should read comments before I comment myself. Love that you've started up a flickr group, I'll have to go over and check it out girl!
