Recipe for green eggs from Storytime


1 box Vanilla Wafers - do not get store brand b/c they are not sturdy enough
1 package Vanilla Candy Coating - in baking section at Kroger (not sure about the brand)
1 pouch Betty Crocker green Cookie Icing - in the ready-to-use squeeze pouch

Spread the cookies out on a sheet of wax paper
Melt the candy coating per instructions - I did microwave, and it was fine
Pour the melted coating over each cookie with a large spoon - the coating will spread out to make the imperfect shape of a fried egg (so, don't place cookies too close together)
After the vanilla coating has dried completely, squeeze the green icing into a yolk shape on top of each cookie and allow to dry

Cookies will come off of the wax paper easily with the use of a spatula

Meet Marissa Meyer

When I started Scarlet, the second book in the Lunar Chronicles Quartet, I had some trepidation. I am not a big fan of the story "Little Red Riding Hood" mostly because I am petrified of wolves but also because I feel that Red is too gullible and unwitting to make a proper story heroine.Well, I had nothing to worry about...the little red riding hood in Scarlet is a Red that the Katniss Everdeen generation can get behind. A heroine with drive, courage, and brains who dives into her adventure with Cinder right by her side. Not to mention by the end of this book I was in love with the Big Bad Wolf.

Androids, cyborgs and all of the fairy tale characters you know and love. Oh my! Meet Marissa Meyer, author of the Lunar Chronicles Quartet and a New York Times-bestselling author, when she comes to sign at Square Books, Jr. on February 14, 2013. I can't think of a better person to spend Valentines Day with than the person who makes some of the books I love best. JB
