Almost 25 years ago I married Matt Coleman and his huge Irish Catholic family! Over the years I have enjoyed many family dinners and listened to many tales from his parents and siblings about growing up in their crazy family! I thought we need to document these stories and share these recipes so everyone can enjoy them. So with the help of my Sister-in-Law Melissa Coleman, we created the Make Your Own Damn Cookies cookbook as a Christmas present for the siblings.
Just to be clear…My Mother-in-Law would never say that to anyone, in fact she wears herself out at family dinners making sure everyone is taken care of. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever seen the woman eat a hot meal in the 25 years I’ve known her.
Make Your Own Damn Cookies is really a call to action to create your own happiness, family traditions, and crazy family memories!
I really hit the jackpot when I became a Coleman and I hope you enjoy the recipes and stories as much as I do!
Eat, drink, and be Mary!
