Spook Troop Cookies

November 9, 2015

By Shannon Moloney Suggested song to play while cooking: Time Warp, from the Rocky Horror Picture Show Like many others out there, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Once a year, you can literally be anything. A person, a thing, a pun. What an opportunity to really express your creativity, either outright or subtly. I love the costumes, the debauchery, the mystery, and the candy. To get my coworkers…


Eat Like a Gilmore Girl: Rocky Road Cookies

September 8, 2015

Season 1 Episode 8 “Love and War and Snow” About a year ago, I started rereading the Harry Potter series (for the thousandth time) and found myself shopping for more sweaters and blankets. A few years ago, I was more tolerant of the Kardashian clan than I am now and started filling in my already thick eyebrows with black pencil. I was also allowing a camera crew to follow me…

I’m no gourmet chef, so any recipe involving more than four minutes and a microwave is usually a no-go. It takes something major, like throwing a picnic, for me to really get with the spirit of the endeavor, especially when a recipe involves refrigerating something for an hour or more before you even put it in the oven. Like, pick a temperature, dough! It isn’t that hard! It takes a…


White Chocolate Lemon Cookies

I made these for a cookie contest they had at work today. That’s right, this is breaking news! They announced the winners only 5 hours before I wrote this article! Don’t worry, I won’t keep you in suspense. The winner was…not me! Now don’t feel too bad for me, Sporkers. These babies were excellent! If you were hoping for leftovers, well, you are S.O.L. The people at my office cleaned…

The Cookie Monstah

I should preface this review by informing you that Cookie Monster is my spirit animal. So, needless to say, when I encountered a fun-looking food truck paying homage to one of my favorite childhood characters, I had to double back and check it out. Cookie Monster really missed out on dessert diversity when he lived on Sesame Street. We all wanted to be him – uninhibited, a bit of a…

Grandma’s Molasses Cookies

The South has some damn good food. That’s basically this whole post summarized, so you can go ahead and skip to the recipe if you want. When I was a little kid my grandmother had this amazing recipe for molasses cookies. The taste was something special. They took your mind on a road trip through the South’s greatest hits. One taste was enough to make you forget that the Ku…

Just Cookie Dough: Vegan Cookie Dough That Doesn’t Taste Like Sand!

If you have ever bought pre-made vegan cookie dough, you know the struggle. The cookies usually turn out okay but when you take a bite of the raw dough it’s disgusting. The texture is generally sand-like and the flavor is most often chemical-ly. You wonder how the cookies even turn out edible because the dough is so repulsive. Well, I have good news for you. Hampton Creek has made a…

Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookies   

I love cake batter. Cake batter ice cream. Cake batter shakes. Cake batter cookies. Cake flavored anything. But what’s better than a cookie that tastes like cake? A cookie that tastes like cake and has sprinkles! It’s like a slice of birthday cake on the go. And yes, they taste just as delicious as they look. Sprinkles make everything taste better. Just don’t forget to make enough to share. Chocolate Rainbow…
