I am constanstly thinking and worrying about food i eat -any suggestions on how to overcome this?

Question by Rachel S: I am constanstly thinking and worrying about food i eat -any suggestions on how to overcome this?
i know it sounds stupid, but i am allergic to gluten, dairy products, chicken, nuts and coconut. So my diet is already narrowed down to gluten free items, fish, soy products and tons of fruits and veggies. Yet i still feel guilty if i eat a gluten free cookie or something. I work out like crazy too…my family thinks im out of my mind but i just cant seem to be at peace with myself when i splurge on dairy-free chocolate or french fries?

Question by angelkate0110: About how many ounces of frosting/icing would you need for about 3 dozen gingerbread cookies?
I am having a Christmas party soon and I would like my friends and I to decorate gingerbread cookies. I don’t know how many containers of frosting I need to buy! Also, can you just use cake frosting or is it completely different from cookie frosting? Thank you!

Answer by megaan,
It depends on how large the cookies are and how much icing you are using. Just off the top of my head i would go with about 7-8 ounces to be on the safe side, plus if you dont use it all you can keep it for another time. I would not use cake frosting as it wont give the same affect. I would buy or make royal icing or even buttercream icing. Recipes for those are everywhere!

Question about what to charge for my dog cookies?

Question by Cheese: Question about what to charge for my dog cookies?
I have started to make dog cookies and a local retailer is interested in buying them. They want to mark them up 40%.What is the formula I would use to figure out how much to charge the retailer for my cookies. Their price for my cookies would be $ 5.00 retail.

Answer by startingover2011
Well, strictly speaking from the mathematical standpoint given their markup, you would charge ( $ 5 / 1.40 ) = $ 3.57 per pack.

But from a managerial accounting perspective, this is a cost-volume-profit scenario. There’s not really one magic formula. I think you should try to charge more, like say $ 4 per pack. If they don’t want to buy too much (your volume of sales) at that price (cost to them), then you lower your price. If they DO want to buy at that price and YOU are making your desired level of profit, them ‘it’s all good’ (as my close woman friend is fond of saying haha).

If your customer DOESN’T want to buy a lot at that price level, your strategy is to REDUCE the price level and make up for it by doing a higher VOLUME of sales.

Profit can be made at lower prices OR higher prices. It depends on the VOLUME of sales. An example is McDonald’s Dollar menu. High volume, low cost to customer – and McD’s still makes a tidy profit :-)

Question by hahahearts: What are the best holiday cookies that will keep fresh for about 2 weeks?
Looking to bake cookies, and wish to get started now. I want some cookie/baked goods recipes that will stay fresh until after Christmas. Anything but pie’s, cake’s and things like that. Bars are fine.

Answer by Lilina
Ginger snaps or biscotti would be good because they’re supposed to be a drier, crunchier cookie

You can find some great recipes for them on www.allrecipes.com

Good luck!

Q&A: Question about cookie dough and cookie press?

Question by ♥Mommy to 3 year old Jacob and baby on the way♥: Question about cookie dough and cookie press?
Does the press work better with cold cookie dough or room temp cookie dough? So far room temp has been hard to work with and won’t come off the plastic disk easily. I’m snowed in today and planning to bake, but want to know first if the dough needs to be room temp or cold……(one spritz recipie says one thing, and a different one says another.)
