Welcome to The Pauley Principle!

The Pauli Principle, named for Wolfgang Pauli, deals with atoms and electron-sharing that results in new, stronger bonds. Think 2 parts hydrogen and 1 part oxygen, a shared delectable (!) electron and VOILA! Water!

Similarly, when you prepare whole food to share with family and friends, especially foods you've grown, something amazing happens. Meals become tastier and healthier. Your soul, not just your stomach, becomes fulfilled. You live life more abundantly as a result. During a shared meal, the bonds that people create grow stronger and become something new: GREATER than the sum of the parts! I give you The Pauley Principle.

Janice Poachman's Christmas Sandwich Cremes

My husband and I, married 29 years and counting, still learn about each other. There's still that sense of awe and mystery sometimes. Our recent revelation was about favorite cookies. Little did we know, we had the same favorite! All we could do was describe it, not knowing its name.

My husband thought this would be perfect for Santa.

I slapped the filling on pretty fast. Maybe I'll pipe it on next time for a prettier finish.
I had never before tried to make them. In fact, I couldn't find a recipe since I didn't know what they were called. That's one reason I love search engines! So, here's a recipe out of Ontario, Canada. Janice Poachman was kind enough to send her recipe into Taste of Home. I tried it, and I like it! This will become part of our tradition. But, putting a full plate of them under the Christmas tree? Roll over and go back to sleep, Santa!
Go to this link for her recipe and a mouth-watering photo:


  1. I took these to a cookie exchange and won in the "Most Creative" category! Thanks, Janice!

  2. Hmmm...perhaps I'll try making a gluten free version and post it on my blog :)
