Batten down the hatches! Frankenstorm is coming!
Is anyone else creeped out that the biggest storm of the season is also coming just in time for Halloween? I think what I’m most concerned about is losing power. Talk about First World Problems. But how am I supposed to whip up delicious treat for you Smart Cookiers if I can’t use my craptastic electric appliances? Let’s hope for everyone’s sake that we don’t get hit too hard in CNY. Otherwise, how can I bring you another week as delicious as this one was?
Let’s review, shall we?
- Monster Whoopie Pies
- Vodka Blush Pizza
- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies
- Sweet Potato Pepper Jack Soup
- Fudge Filled Brownie Cookies
Try and tell me this week wasn’t one of our most delicious yet! Not to mention, it was packed with fall fare. On Halloween, I’ll bring you guys a round-up of all the awesome Halloween recipes we had this year. That’s going to be one spooktastic collection!
Speaking of spooky things, how about these nails? They were super easy, but certainly festive.
If you like Smart Cookie on Facebook, then you might’ve seen my poll asking you guys to pick the name for my baby kitten. (S)he was originally named Winnie after the witch in Hocus Pocus…until we found out that she was actually a HE. I had the hardest time picking a new name out, hence why I asked you guys to weigh in. Your choices were Jack (as in Jack Skellington, or Jack-o-Lantern), since I wanted something Halloweeny, or Loki, as tribute to the late Thor (Loki is Thor’s brother). I know you must be curious to find out which name I picked. Ready?
Neither of them.
I know. You probably hate me. All that fuss over voting, and I didn’t even pick one! You see, Loki won by a landslide on Facebook, so I spent a good day or two calling him that. But the more I did, the more awkward it felt. He just isn’t a Loki, and the name didn’t fit. Instead, I went with what I originally wanted, a Halloween-related name: Edgar Allen Poe. We call him Poe for short, or sometimes Gar. And you know what? It just fits. He’s an Edgar all the way.
And just so we’re clear, Mina is still Mina. Now, they’ve both got names from Halloween literature.
Before I go, I’d like to send a BIG thank you to Reese’s for sharing my Little Owl Cookies this week. Because of them, I went from 580-something likes on Facebook to 1,375 likes! I am ecstatic. Thank you so much to those of you who liked my page. Let’s keep those new likes coming!
I hope everything has a Happy Halloween filled with sweet treats. Hopefully Frankenstorm doesn’t impede your celebration.
