|Life is good when you can lick the bowl|
Over the years, the whole licking the bowl thing has become tabu and fearful and that's just sad. I mean what's the point of baking a cake or cookies and then not even enjoy the goopy batters of your labor. If Ari could eat the bowl, he would. He basically sticks his whole head in the bowl and laps it up like a golden retriever!
It's a simple pleasure of life, because nothing tastes better than vanilla batter or chocolate chip cookie dough. But even more importantly in the food allergy world...it means that you can be like everyone else. You can have your eggless, nutless cake and eat it too, and in some respects, it probably tastes better.
At the end of the day, licking the bowl is about appreciating the things we sometimes take for granted. And while small insignificant things may not mean that much to you, it can mean the world to others...like being able to lick the bowl.
