|Despite it's mascot's undeniable lovability and cuteness, you won't find any Pillsbury ready-to-bake cookie dough here.|
|This cookie dough is made from scratch (mostly).|
|For he last few days, specific groups have ventured into the cafeteria during free swim to learn basic baking techniques like mixing.|
|The activity is led by Linda, the head of Centenary College's cafeteria, who is responsible for providing Campus Kids' meals.|
|Butter, sugar, vanilla, flour, baking soda, and salt have all been measured out for campers to homogenize.|
|And let's not kid ourselves, not all of the dough goes into the oven.|
|But the dough that does gets placed onto the rack and put into the oven.|
With some time left at the end of the period, Linda leads a food trivia contest.
|For instance, did you know that potatoes and lettuce are the most eaten vegetable in the US?|
|Or how about the origin of Hackettstown's own M&M: made for soldiers so that they wouldn't melt in the trenches (hence their tag line).|
|White Castle was the first fast food restaurant in the US, obviously dating back to the United State's Medieval era. (Trivial note: there's a new White Castle under construction in Hackettstown as we speak.)|
|And for some reason, the people who walk out to snack with a turquoise and white box, now known camp-wide for it's sugary contents, become the most popular. Whooda thunk it?|
