A quick thank you to the wonderful staff at Firekeepers Casino, especially Kathy George, general manager/VP of hotel operations. This weekend I attended a private event at the casino; the food was spectacular, the service was exemplary, and I even won $27. Woo hooo! But I think the showstopper this weekend was the plate of cookies that greeted me when I checked in to my room. The pictures (below) don't really do the SIZE of these cookies justice.  I have to address the pastry chef at Firekeepers directly on this one...

Dear Pastry Chef at Firekeepers Casino,

There are a few great mysteries in the world; the true identity of Jack the Ripper, what happened to the city of Atlantis, and how you, Pastry Chef, could possibly conceive cookies of this size would be considered a single serving. Bigger than my HAND, 3/4 of an inch thick, one did not simply stop there... no, no... each had to be half-dipped in milk chocolate, and then drizzled with white chocolate. AND THERE WERE SIX OF THEM! I do not exaggerate; I had to eat this cookie with two hands like I was a toddler.  And I didn't even finish it! I made it halfway through before I had to tap out. I don't know, Pastry Chef, if you are an angel sent to help mankind, or a devil that needs to learn portion control. Either way, the cookies were ridiculously decadent and completely worth flicking off my diet for.  My future diabetes thanks you in advance.
