Here's how to find Emily's cookies
When Online Editor Emily Donohue came aboard the Good Ship Saratogian, first as an intern and later as a reporter, I knew she knew something about desserts, having worked for Ben and Jerry's during her school years. Plus, I figured anyone who could work for Pat Pipino would have no problem working for me.
She became the Twitter Queen as county reporter, and this fall stepped up to the position of online editor when Steve Shoemaker left for the web world of Ithaca academia.
Little did I know that Donohue was not only a social media whiz, learning, doing, innovating, and training, but she's also a fantastic baker. That's a plus in a place where we work for food.
This morning she had two trays in the cafeteria beautifully arranged with scrumptious cookies — glazed stars, gingerbread men, pinwheels, fat peppermint sandwiches, glazed almond chai bites, signature cranberry and coconut macaroons. They looked too good to eat -- which didn't stop me or anyone else, of course.
Now I know what I'm bringing to the office holiday party -- cookies by Emily.
