Oatmeal Cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

To toast nuts: Place nuts on a baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool and then chop into pieces.

In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), beat the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth (about 2 - 3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat until incorporated. Stir in the nuts, oats, and dried cranberries or chocolate chips.

For large cookies, use 1/4 cup of batter (I like to use an ice cream scoop) and space the cookies about 2 inches (5 cm) apart on the baking sheet. Then wet your hand and flatten the cookies slightly with your fingers so they are about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick. Bake the cookies for about 12 - 15 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges but still soft and a little wet in the centers. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 20 - 24 large cookies

Oatmeal Cookies:

1 cup (110 grams) walnuts or pecans, toasted and chopped (optional)
3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (210 grams) packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup (105 grams) all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups (260 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries, cherries, or raisins or 1 cup white or dark chocolate chips

...“Sorry sir, our hospital can’t cure Ebola… We recommend you to go to another hospital.” “But.. but I can’t, I’ve already been to many other hospitals. Please, please doctor…” “I am really sorry sir. All we can do is keep you quarantined in the hospital,” the doctor replied with a deep cold voice. This is 11th hospital that had rejected me, and they all rejected me since I have no money. My friend, Peter, also suffered from Ebola, but he had the best doctors in the world to cure him. The only difference between him and I is our wealth. I thought that people could not judge other people by money. How come this society is still judging people by their wealth.

A Fortune

...A Fortune The short story A Fortune is written by Joy Monica T. Sakaguchi. In the short story A Fortune the reader acquires knowledge about a first-person narrator, a young boy who shares the same destiny as the little boy we hear about later in the story despite of differences in social status. They both hunger after acknowledgement from their fathers, they have both been ignored and mistreated by their fathers; they both suffer from the same privations and both are searching for redemption. The short story A Fortune begins in medias res and is written in past tense and is told through a male first-person narrator, which leads to an understanding of the narrator’s inner thoughts and feelings. The narrator’s appearance is superficially described as rather unattractive, but his name remains unknown for the reader which creates anonymity. Through several flashbacks the reader gradually understands the narrator’s childhood, personality and social status in society. His social status is emphasized by the writing style in the short story as well – his usage reflects his social inheritance. By using contractions, slang and everyday language the reader gets the impression that the first-person narrator belongs to a lower social group in the society. This finds expression in sentences like: ’Boy would he yell at me’ or ‘My ma tried to raise me well’ where the narrator uses slang, or for instance the sentence ‘Hey, kid, you lost?’ where the verb “are” is omitted. However, the......

...VORA AND COMPANY* Understand the Concept of Marketing Mix In December 1963, M.C. Vora, proprietor of Vora and Company manufacturers of Blossom Quick-Cooking Oats located at Lucknow, sought counsel from the Small Industries Service Institute at Lucknow regarding steps that might be taken to increase the sales of his company. The company had been organized in 1959, had started to sell its product nationally in 1961, but by December 1963 had failed to attain a profitable volume of sales. Mr. Vora’s family had been in the group business for several generations. In 1959, some four years after the Government of India had stopped the importation of packaged cereals, Mr. Vora and his family decided to enter the business of processing and selling a product similar to Quaker brand of quick-cooking rolled oats, a product of the Quaker Oats Company of the United States. For some years previous to the Government’s embargo, this product had been imported into India by the firm of Muller and Phipps, which acted as sole selling agents. The firm had advertised the product in many Indian cities and reportedly had attained at least a moderate volume of sales, particularly in South India, in the states of Kerala and Madras. In 1956 shortly after the embargo on Quaker oats, the Ganesh Flour Mills of Delhi started to develop and market a quick cooking white oats under the trademark Champion. After some three years of experimental marketing in nearby areas, Ganesh Mills extended its...

...cookie-making process: Me Mixer Me Spoon and tray Roommate Oven and tray Oven and tray INPUT OUTPUT Roommate Oven and tray Tray Roommate Roommate Remarks: Since it does not consume any time, the first step, that is to take an order, is here ignored. Inventory is not kept at any time as the cookie dough is continuously being processed by the dozen to fit the bottleneck's capacity and only produce fresh cookies according to placed orders. 2. We assume the following: The minimum amount of cookies per order is one dozen cookies (the case states that the process produces “cookies by the dozen”). There are at least two trays and spoons, as the case mentions “cookie trays” and “spoons” Since the amount of time necessary to unload the oven is considered “negligeable”, it can be done during the same minute used to load the next batch. In this view, the first order takes 26 minutes but each following batch only requires an additional 10 minutes (see Gantt chart 1 attached). Capacity of resources (dozen cookies per hour): | Me | Roommate | Mixer (1) | Trays (2) | Spoons (2) | Oven (1) | Cycle time | 8mns/unit | 4mns/unit | 6mns/3unit = 2mns/unit | 15mns/2units = 7.5mns/unit | 2mns/2units =1mn/unit | 10mns/unit | Capacity | 7.5/hour | 15/hour | 30/hour | 8/hour | 60/hour | 6/hour | Since 4 hours = 240 minutes, the team can fill up to 22......

Essay of a Fortune

...the story is described from his point of view. As a result we can quite easily relate to the “I” and thus we almost immediately sympathize with him, because we know his each and every thought and feeling. The “I” is the kind of person who yearns for people, his father in particular, to recognize his worth and appreciate him. We see this in lines 13-14, where he talks about his father: “(…) I just didn’t want to know how much Pop thought I was worth.” After his father leaves the “I” keeps doing pickpocketing, because he wants to prove himself to his father by giving him all the money, when he comes back. The “I” is for that reason focusing on the future all along, which probably lies at the root of him being so excessively fond of fortune cookies, because they tell you about the great things, which the future holds in store for you. In addition to the main character we have the young boy Jeremy, who is almost the very picture of the “I” as a child. Jeremy isn’t like other kids at his age; he is quiet and keeps his eyes down, so that he won’t upset his father, who only sees all the things Jeremy does wrong. You can clearly see how the “I” empathizes...

A Fortune

...A Fortune How would you define wealth? Is it when you have a lot of money stored in the bank? Or is when you a feeling of joy in your stomach every time you see you family and friends. Are such famous quotations as “enough is as good as a feast” true or just empty word for those who aren’t that fortunate? This large debate, provide a basis for the short story “A fortune” by Joy Monica T. Sakaguchi. In the short story we meet a young man, who lives on pickpocketing. Mainly because he grew up in a less fortunate environment, with a dad who wasn’t caring, and a mother who only focused on the problems and worst things in life. But after all the times the father had let his boy down, the boy still came to him every time, he had snatched a wallet. This was a boy who was seeking the feeling of presence and love from his parents, this might be the the reason why he started pickpocketing for his father; because when he did that he felt like he had something in common with his father, and by doing it he (sometimes) made his father glad. But he was still worried about his father’s view on him; this is obvious where he thinks ”I should have counted the money I just didn’t want to know how much Pop thought I was worth” (p. 1 l.13) The mothers influence on this kid has not been much better, I guess that it must have been......

...minutes to fill a rush order of one dozen cookies because it takes 1 minute to receive, read, print, and send reply to the customer order; 6 minutes to place all the ingredients of the order into a mixing bowl, up to three dozen cookies worth, and mix; 2 minutes to spoon the cookie dough onto a tray, a dozen per tray; 10 minutes to put the cookie into the one tray capacity oven, set the timer, and bake the cookies; 5 minutes to take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool; 2 minutes per dozen to take the cookies off the tray and carefully pack them into a box; and 1 minute to accept payment for the order. The overall process takes 19 minutes per dozen and a constant 8 minutes for every order under four dozen cookies because of each order under four dozen will always take 2 minutes to receive and accept payment for the order and 6 minutes to mix ingredients up three dozen cookies worth. So for a rush order of two dozen it will take 46 minutes and a rush order of three dozen will take 65 minutes. 2. How many orders can you fill in a night, assuming you are open four hours each night? Assuming all orders are only one dozen, we could fill 24 orders in a night because the bottleneck resource of the process, which determines the capacity of the whole process, is the baking in the oven. Baking takes 10 minutes giving it the lowest capacity of all the steps and the capacity of the whole process, 6 dozen cookies per hour thus 24 dozen cookies each four-hour night. The......

Fortune a

...A Fortune Essay The short story ”A Fortune” is written by Joy Monica T. Sakaguchi and was published in the year of 2000. It tells the story of a man who is pick pocketing and then discovers a little boy wandering the streets alone. This is the same boy, whose father’s wallet he stole just an hour earlier. When taking the boy back to his house, the narrator feels an urge to let the kid know what he is worth. The narrator of the text is a young man, maybe in his mid-twenties. He is the only son of the stinking, rotting, “loud-of-a-man”. Well at least according to his mother, the lady with a black wig, using most of her time crying, because she fears the narrator will grow up and be like his father. Growing up in a trailer park, the family didn’t have a lot of money. This is one of the reasons for his father teaching him pick pocketing in the age of five. This pick pocketing is still a part of his life, even after his old man left town without leaving a note or a phone call. The reason for him still pick pocketing lies in the hope he has, of his father someday returning: “One day Pop will show up again. I’ll hand him the boxful of money, he will throw me some bills, and then I’ll just stow them away without counting them. That’s what I think.” (Line 31) It’s not that he needs the money. In fact he has a job. But he is longing for the recognition from his father. As he says himself, when arguing why he didn’t ever count the money his dad gave him: “I just didn’t want to......

Home Style Cookies

...Home-Style Cookies Jane Smith BUS644: Operations Management Professor Ben-Gourion Mestman February 6, 2012 Home-Style Cookies Production Processes The batch processing system begins when orders are received from distributors. Production schedules are based on the orders received. Each day, a list of cookies to be made is given to the person in charge of mixing. The ingredients needed are activated through a master list containing all the ingredients to ensure accuracy. After all ingredients are mixed, the batter is then poured so the cookies can be baked. Once the cookies are finished baking, they are cooled and then placed in the boxes manually by staff who removes the broken or deformed cookies. The boxes are then wrapped, sealed, and labeled automatically. The company has increased productivity by cutting the non-filled individual cookies on a diagonal so more cookies can bake at a time. In addition, automating the ingredients helps cut back on human error when mixing the ingredients. Increasing the length of the ovens made it possible to bake more cookies at one time. This increase in addition with cutting the non-filled cookies on the diagonal, makes it possible to be more productive. When one uses the machine productivity measure, it is evident that the number of units of output divided by the dollar value of output per machine hour is higher increasing the length of the oven. The company is making the right......

Cookies for Shelby

...Lindy Ward February 19, 2013 ENG 110 Process Analysis Cookies for Shelby Baking cookies with my five-year-old daughter Shelby is quite an event. I love the mess and the chaos involved. She is my only child, and she won’t love baking cookies with me forever. I should probably make more time for baking. After all, the end result is always a success. The hardest part for me is to remember to set the butter out at room temperature the day before. Surprisingly, Shelby is always more excited about the process than the end result. I remember baking cookies with my mom as a child. I only remember the Christmas cookie event, because there probably was not mid-year cookie baking taking place. I hope Shelby holds on to our baking memories as she grows up. The beginning of this cooking fiasco is putting on the proper attire. There are two beige aprons that hang in our kitchen. A red and black swirl design screen printed on the front surrounds the word “Mommy” on mine, and “Me” on hers. They were a gift from one of Shelby’s schoolteachers. She typically hands me mine, we both put them on and she waits for me to tie hers behind her back. Shelby would cook every meal with me if I let her. Unfortunately, cooking with my child is not conducive to efficient meal preparation, or edible meals for that matter. Now that we are properly dressed, we collect all of our ingredients. We get from the pantry, the flour, white and brown sugar, salt, and baking soda. Then we......
