I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional sandwich cookies. I know that probably makes me a weirdo in your book, but two dry cookies sandwiched with a dreamy filling doesn’t make an ideal cookie to me. I’ll eat the filling, leave the dry cookies, thank you.
But wait! An oatmeal cream pie? Now there’s a different story! There you have two soft, hearty oatmeal cookies AND the dreamy filling. Um, yes please, I’ll take the whole thing…and an extra for the road.
That’s how I came to my Cookie Butter Oatmeal Sandwich cookies. I took the amazing cookie butter that I love (dreamy filling) and sandwiched it between to chewy but substantial oatmeal cookies. This just got serious. The perfect combo.
If you haven’t tried cookie butter… get in your car and drive to the store NOW! If you’re at Trader Joe’s grab a jar of their Cookie Butter; if you’re at Target, Walmart, Kroger or wherever you happen to shop, grab a jar of creamy Biscoff spread or Speculoos spread! Now, drive home and get ready to bake (oh, go ahead and eat a spoonful to start…and resist eating the whole jar).
With its insta-social, insta-vintage snapshot-sharing network, Instagram would be the ideal way to keep up with the lives of your favorite authors... if it weren't so biased to authors who are still alive, that is.
Fortunately, with a little imagination (and Photoshop), we've whipped up some perfect pix to flesh out the feeds of a few dearly departed literary darlings.
Ah, one of the most compelling and, well, dangerous of literary characters – the femme fatale. Love her or hate her (probably both), she’s a staple in many stories. Here’s your guide to the lady (usually) in black.
It’s very likely that for most of your young adult life, you are going to have to deal with the character-building experience of living with roommates.
In today’s tough economic times, it’s just not financially practical for most people to live on their own in their twenties. Living with another person can be tough—people never let on about how gross, irresponsible, loud, or lazy they are, so choosing your roommate can be a shot in the dark. So, how do you deal with a bad roommate? The easiest way is probably to be passive aggressive with the roommate instead of direct and to-the-point. I would guess that such an approach would yield better, faster results.
This venue was PERFECT. A number of posters featured in Swissted were hung up around the venue, and looked so great in the space. Mike gave a talk before signing books (see the fistpump photo below!), and it was just a wonderful event. We can't wait to work with powerHouse again for The Resurrectionist in June! Thanks to the crew at powerHouse, Svedka, and everyone who came out.
In Brooklyn? Stop by powerHouse. The posters will remain up until April, so you've got time to check them out. And Mike is going to stop by powerHouse this week to sign all the remaining copies in the store.
Check out a few more snaps below.
And if you were there and took some pictures, send them on over (firstname.lastname@example.org)! We'd love to see them.
