Addiction [Apr. 3rd, 2007|07:13 am]

So here's the deal. My son has an addiction to cookie. He's going on a hunger strike because I won't give him cookies anymore.

Some friends have suggested I make him a reeeally gross cookie. Either that or cook him vegetable/fruit laden healthy cookies.

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is what kind of cookie would you make a kid to try and cure them of a cookie obsession?

Thaaaanks. :) You'll be helping a little randomling and his Mama.

And I probably shouldn't show this to you, because there's certain to be some aspiring criminals on my f-list. *grin* I know who you are.

All the same, here's a quick way to get into your house if you lose your keys.

Otherwise, it's a good idea to test it just to make sure that you and your loved ones aren't in teh danger.

while we were small children, my sister tried to make my mom some cookies for a road trip she was going on.
not understanding the concept of everything is one = nasty, she just kept dumping everything that SOUNDED good into it.
so, just make a shit cookie. throw in sprinkles to make it look appealing, just make a basic cookie, with like, cream of tartar, itallian seasoning, sugar free nasty chocolate chips, almond flavoring, blue food coloring (blue food is unappealing because it's unnatural. no real blue foods!)
just jumble all kinds of crazy crap and call it a cookie. don't say anything to him, and just leave them out.

oh oh! hot sauce and oatmeal, as well!

Blueberries are real.

And most things you put them in look mighty blue and mighty appealing to me!

Heh. they don't tell you how to make a bump key, but that you can basically google it to find out how.

Hrm...try cooking savoury cookies? Just to expand the palate a bit :P. Or if you're still going for gross, leave out suger and use lots of salt.

I figured you could find the rest of the bump key if it was something you required. hehe. ;)


-- And what's savoury cookie?

mmm I say make your own cookies so you know what's going into them, and then offer him one or two if he eats his dinner (but don't make him over-eat, that's an awful thing to do to a kid)

Oh he eats plenty of cookies I've made, but that's the problem. He won't take it as a reward for eating yummy broccoli and tofu. lol. He's ONLY wanting cookies. He's on a freaking hunger strike!

Vegan cookies! Vegan foods contain nothing that can in any way be construed as coming from an animal - so no dairy products (milk or butter or chocolate chips) and no eggs. No processed flour or sugar. Lots of soy.:)

I'll try to dig up a vegan cookie recipe...I've not made them, so they might actually taste good, but I'm b etting a small, cookie-obssessed child won't want to touch anything you tell him is made from soy bean and unbleacked flour. :)

haha!!! My luck he'd freaking love it, but I guess a vegan cookie would be better then the current kind he's eating. I would love to see a recipe. :)

I was thinking dinner and kids usually like chicken. Behold the chicken cookie http://www.germanshepherds.com/recipes/chickencookies/

mmm and carrot cookies, these actually sound good. http://southernfood.about.com/od/carrotcakesandcookies/r/bl30627j.htm

but I like the idea of making him a whole meal in cookie form.

That would be awesome!! We're vegetarians so I'll have to skip on the chicken cookie, but a carrot cookie is awesome. Dude, a meal of cookies. An idea I have never even considered. I might just have to through a cookie/cocktail party. hehe

C is for cookie, that's good enough for me

He'll eat when he gets hungry enough.


Make cookies YOU like, but he wouldn't... like, if he doesn't like oatmeal cookies, and you do, make those and eat them in front of him! ...I actually don't know how that would help, but it'd be funny. Haha, i'm a horrible person.



I've been hankerin' for cookies HARD the last few days, though... Grrrrr. *dies* Those damn E.L. Fudge cookies... that look like elves... and then you bite off their heads... *drool*

Put out a plate of oreos where 3/4ths of them are "gross"... put thin not-easily detected layers of garlic powder, salt, onion juice, tabasco, fresh ginger juice, (all of these things are strong so a little will ruin the flavor and maybe not ruin the smell.

Also maybe try non-toxic essential oils that SMELL good but taste awful... like just a quarter drop of mint EO on mint oreos... but leave some cookies ok.

Warning: this may cause wet/halfchewed cookies to end up on your floor or table..

Try not to laugh, he'll be on to you;)

Give him a mix of good and bad cookies whenever you give him cookies. He will become VERY untrusting of cookies very fast, methinks..

Depending on his age and stubbornness (his stubbornness seems rather high hehe) he might learn fast or slow...

Then start substituting healthier cookies that are delicious but maybe not so packed with sugar and fat as options which will ALWAYS be good tasting, but a better choice for him.

Ok, honey... you can take your chances with a batch of mostly gross oreos... or you can have a couple gingersnaps (graham crackers, oatmeal/raisin crisps, or these) what do you want?

Um...Emotional Blackmail?

Damn, lady, that kid is playing you like a bass fiddle. Screw 'healthy cookies'. He wants to have a battle of wills and say, "I'm on a hunger strike!" Just say matter of factly, "Okay, Gandhi, knock yourself out."

He'll eat soon enough. lol

Re: Um...Emotional Blackmail?

lol. True, but he's so widdle. I want to make sure he's getting some food in, you know? He's so short! He needs all the food I can get into him, but I think cookies will make him bigger the wider rather then the taller. heh. He is my little Gahndi, except something tells me that mine's a little crabbier.

Well, that's the only time I give him cookies, but he's freeeaking out when I don't give them to him all the time now, and it's been much drama.

But I do try and do healthy cookies when I give them to him. I should look at more vegan recipes though, thank you.

One time my friend and I decided to make a giant cookie. It was the worst thing ever. Rock hard on the outside and goo in the middle.

Oooh, that's kinda dangerous though if the cookie's not cooked, and if it's too hard I'm afraid he'll just try and swallow it and I don't want any choking.
