Cooking Tip of the Day
Don't put fresh cookies on top of a stove burner that is still on. Scientific tests have proven that this may cause said cookies to "smoke" and otherwise become filled with carcinogens and do not make for proper eating. If someone in the kitchen does say "why are the cookies smoking", it's usually not best to ignore that comment.
If you do burn them, keep in mind that chickens and rodents will eat burnt bakery items.
