Tough Cookies (Food Network) TV show hosts
"Tough Cookies" (Food Network TV show) is reality docu-series that heads down the shore to follow sisters Susan Adair and Linda Blank and their loving, squabbling, multi-generational family as they run Crazy Susan's Cookie Company in Ocean City, New Jersey. Crazy Susan's isn't your average bakery—Susan is a mad genius, cooking up crazy new concoctions every day, and their cookies are as popular as the beach in this town. They have their hands full with lines out the door and phones that never stop
ringing—all while baking and managing their employees, who are mostly family members.

In the premiere episode, Susan and Linda gather the family together to plan a celebration for their father's 88th birthday party and create a new cookie to honor their dad. Everyone has an opinion, but Susan's decision rules—so baking begins on a banana split cookie. Using their construction background, their brother Johnny and nephew Michael come up with their own twist on a banana split and hit the boardwalk to see how it sells.

Susan is the owner, creative force and uninhibited head baker at Crazy Susan's, always developing new flavor combinations and experimenting in the kitchen—but she admits running a business and managing staff isn't her strong suit. As her sister and co-owner Linda says, "Susan is great at baking, but she has no idea how the cookies get from the cooling rack to the customers." So Linda handles the business end of the store, and keeps everything on track—from ordering and scheduling, to bossing employees around. "We have a nickname for her—the Godfather," says Susan. With niece Stephanie on the register, cousin Lori selling cookies on the boardwalk and Susan's son Barry palling around with nephews Sammy and Mark—a family member is never far away at Crazy Susan's.

Crazy Susan's Cookie Company opened in 2006, and has since become a destination at the Jersey Shore. Their cookies have been featured on Rachael Ray as "Snack of the Day."

The "Tough Cookies" TV show is produced by Sharp Entertainment.
