Dear Spark Recipes,
Each morning I log into my email and am greeted with a message from you. Typically these messages have yummy ideas for salads, chicken or healthy makeovers. However the majority of the recipes I've been greeted with this month are cookies.
The first few were lower calorie makeover cookies and I thought "Thanks for the alternatives.". But here we are a few days later and today's recipe for the 911 Emergency Cookie is well....too much! You are starting to rival the Food Network's 12 Cookies of Christmas. And I don't think that is a good thing.
If you would, please consider featuring other winter recipes such as soups, stews, crock pot meals and the like through the holiday season. As it is now, I'm starting each day with an insane craving for cookies that seems to be triggered by these emails. And with cookies, candy and treats being at every desk, party and function, I could use a little less temptation.
Thanks so much for listening. I truly appreciate the recipes and tips I've learned from you over the years. But please, back off the cookies!
