Avatar the Last Airbender: Air Nomads: Chocolate Oreo Pie

January 15, 2016

By Shannon Moloney Suggested song to play while cooking (refrigerating?): Lost in my Bedroom by Sky Ferreira The Air Nomads. Interestingly their title describes the people rather than a sovereign state. If you hadn’t guessed from the anime’s title, the main character is an air bender, the last one in fact. Talk about an endangered species. The air nomads were peaceful monks. Stately beings in touch with their spiritual selves….


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…


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…

Earl Grey Tea Cookies

What’s better than a fresh cup of tea? How about pairing a nice cup of tea with cookies made out of tea? We’re toeing the fine line between “meta” and “mouthwatering” with this recipe, so it’s definitely worth a shot. Truth be told, this is more of a technique than an actual, legit recipe. So long as you have the all-important kitchen accessory—a food processor—you are pretty set to blend…

National Nutella Day!

Yesterday was my one of my favorite national food days this month, third only to National Pizza Day and National Margarita Day. Whoever invented Nutella is forever my hero, right behind George Washington, Tina Fey, and my mom (naturally). I dropped the ball and completely forgot to celebrate yesterday because I was in a head cold haze, but rest assured, I will find a way. Really, if I hadn’t resolved…
