dancingdeer.jpgHave you ever had Dancing Deer cookies?  What?  No?!  What are you waiting for?  Tangerine-chocolate cookies have a lovely soft spot in the center of a crunchy treat.  Molasses-clove cookies are chewy every day and twice on Sundays. And the sugar cane-lime cookies.  Can’t talk.  Cookie-dreaming….

This is a company  you can love with more than your taste buds, though. Here are 6 reasons why a package of Dancing Deer cookies, (or brownies, or cake) would be a fabulous way to sweeten your Earth Day gathering, or any occasion large or small:

  • Women-Ownership: the CEO advocates for the advancement of women in business.
  • Employee Empowerment: every employee gets stock options, and the company is run with an “open book” management style.
  • Eco-Friendly Packaging: 100% recycled paper and vegetable inks are used.  Check out their Honest Packaging page for more.
  • All-Natural Ingredients: read the back of a pack of cookies and you’ll see words like “flour, vanilla, eggs, cocoa.” Nothing more.
  • Philanthropy: through their Sweet Home program, your purchase can help fight family homelessness.  Families with children are among the fastest-growing homeless population.
  • Local: …if you live in or near Boston.  Which I do.  Yay!

How often do you get a chance to enjoy a treat and support a company that gives you the warm fuzzies?  Give them a try (they ship), and please share: What are your most admired companies?

Are you a frustrated dreamer? I know I am. I often wake up with fragments of scenes echoing in my mind that seem really meaningful–but then I leap out of bed, start my morning routine, and in seconds they’re gone. I want to linger in that realm and tap into the guidance and insight rising […]

Because I lack an engineering degree and don’t understand why we can’t just stop this thing NOW with a 10-ton wad of gum or giant boulder or massive Q-tip, I’ll share more spiritual wisdom from elders.

“Worry is a prayer for something you don’t want.” – Sharon Gannon I love that. The other day someone expressed concern about my excessive worrying habit, and I’ve been contemplating on it ever since. Doing my best to actually contemplate, rather than worry. I’ve been on a renewed Gilmore Girls binge lately and last night as Lorelai, […]
