Pride Enjoy Radical Rainbow Cookies

We had more than our fair share of fun at the July shop-up at Pine Box Rock Shop, but one of the best moments was when I was chatting with the owner/baker from Pride Enjoy.


There I was, minding my own business whilst winding my way through a surprisingly busy summer shop-up when these radical rainbow cookies caught my eye. Much like when the woman working the adoption event when I first saw 89 immediately handed her to me and that was that, Janel noticed the look of love in my eyes and immediately offered me a beautiful sample of her gluten-free, vegan version of what is possibly my favorite cookie.

While I was mmming unabashedly, I managed to impart how much I love rainbow cookies and that, because they're so much work, I've only made them once. Janel understood and responded that there was a blogger who had written a blog called Rainbow Cookies Should Cost a Million Dollars a Pound.


So cool.

As it turned out, my Pride Enjoy rainbow cookies suffered through about 6 hours of heat as we were having so much fun in the new outdoor seating section of Pine Box that we didn't want to leave. While I wouldn't recommend such treatment of these luscious cookies, it does explain why they didn't look as pristine when I ate them that evening as they had upon purchase. However, the taste was not affected!

By their own account, Pride Enjoy is "an alternative baking company that specializes in all-natural, plant-based, and allergen free cookies." I can't seem to find an explanation of the clown on the packaging (clowns!), but I'm willing to overlook it if they keep churning out these delicious cookies.

89iversary #3!

This week we celebrated our third 89iversary!


We've been having a ton of summer fun of late, so the universe threw us a curveball with a dreary day full of clouds and intermittent rain. Since we couldn't go swimming or even for a walk without getting soggy and necessitating a bath, we decided to chillax at home and make the best of it.

Chloe's Kitchen has a great recipe for peanut butter dog treats that I've been meaning to make. It was so easy; I don't know why it took me so long.


In between eating tons of cookies, 89 made time for other important things.
Paper towel rolls.


Even old toys (this is Puffy #2 #3).

Then she received a slew of new ones to terrorize (HK already lost an ear and stripy dog has a hole in his abdomen; the unicorn is just soggy).

There was also a delivery of treats! Wagatha's is great because they make a lot of vegan options and always put a snack in the box for impatient nerds.

 It was a good day to be 89.

And a great day to be me.
