Jackie’s Story:

I don’t bake. At least, not anything that require fine motor skills and any amount of patience. So, it was with great courage that I embarked upon the journey known as pressed or spritz cookies with the help of this press. And although half of the dough seemed to wind up in my hair or on the floor (what do you expect when you give a 7-year-old a baking utensil that looks like a gun), it did keep us entertained for a few hours. In fact, I may even use it more than once (unlike most of the food-related appliances stuffed in our kitchen).

Denise’s story:

I have a soft spot for Martha and have stood by her, subscribing to her magazine as a show of support when she went to prison. I can’t resist anything with her name on it. Plus this was brand new in the box! I’m sure I will get a lot of use of this (sarcasm with a tinge of sadness).

    I love the stories, very funny and entertaining – keep them coming. I am afraid I had to vote for Denise this time…although I did find the cookie press probably more of a useful item.
