Smart Mouth Cookie Contest 2018

Send me your cookie recipes!

It’s cookie contest time! I figured December is a great time to eat cookies, so let’s find some new ones. Send in your unpublished cookie recipes that are sure to blow some minds, and I’ll bake them! Three winners will be announced on-air December 12.

Enter your favorite original cookie recipe here before December 4, 2018 at 9am PST.

My co-judges are Josh Scherer and Danielle Salmon, two renowned cookie-heads.


The top three cookie recipes (as judged by Danielle, Josh and me) will win prize packages including King Arthur Flour gift cards, Bringing It Home by Gail Simmons, The Red Rooster Cookbook by Marcus Samuelsson, a cookbook and a tin of cookies from Milk Bar, Over Easy by Mimi Pond, and a collection of cherry-black pepper and tamarind-ginger vinegar drinking shrubs from Saintly Shrubs. (Packages will vary.)

Listen to Smart Mouth for more details and to hear who won!


Contest ends December 4, 2018 at 9am PST.

Episode 55: Thanksgiving with Gail Simmons

Gail Simmons is Canadian, so we compare it to U.S. Thanksgiving, and talk about beans, olives, root beer, her bold licorice choices, the phrase “soup to nuts,” and the mysteries of sweet potato casserole. Check out her cookbook right here.
