From the Editor...

Until four years ago, Warren Becker was busy saving the world, spending much of his adult life working for various nonprofits. When he'd saved as much of it as he could, he decided to follow a dream that had gradually gathered steam over the last 20 years. That dream: to bake cookies, for you. So, he got certified by the state, opened a commercial kitchen in his home, and baked sweets that he'd then deliver to your house. That dream is still alive but it’s got a new home downtown, where office workers and passersby can stop in for cookies, cakes, scones, and granola. Names like the Mocha Mud Flap (a chocolate-coffee-walnut cookie) and the Gearbox (a chocolate chip-banana Bundt cake) reflect the Wisconsin native's blue-collar upbringing and Midwestern work ethic. Your orders can be carried out or delivered (if you live or work downtown), but you might want to grab a seat, relax and order a shot of espresso or a glass of milk to dip your cookies in. Hours are 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, and 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday. Chad Walsh, 3/6/2012
