I think of several things to fill in these yummy homemade cookie bowls! YUMM!
The dream of enjoying cookies and milk—or cookies and ice cream—at the same time is real, and all you need to do it is cookie dough and a muffin tin. Flip the muffin tin over, form the cookie dough around the cups instead of inside it, and bake the tin upside down. When the dough is cooked through, you’ll have cookie cups, ready for any delicious filling.
You don’t have to use pre-made cookie dough for this trick: cookie maker Wilton actually has the recipe for these sugar cookie bowls on their site. They also happen to sell cookie bowl “pan,” but you can use any upturned muffin tin and your own favorite cookie recipe to make this work.
What do you think, delicious-looking or crazy? What would you fill the cups with?
Thanks to John for sending in the tip!
I can see why its competitors are freaking out! Is Facebook taking over your life??
The overhaul Facebook rolled out last week is meant, first and foremost, to keep users sticking around. But, hyperbole aside, Facebook is already crushing the rest of the Web when it comes to stickiness.
Check out this engagement chart, courtesy of Citigroup’s Mark Mahaney. It’s a neat illustration of the Web 2.0 era, and does a nice job of explaining why Google is so freaked out about Facebook, and why AOL and Yahoo seem to be in eternal turnaround mode. (Note that just a couple of years ago, someone might have thought to include Myspace in here. Remember?)
And from Gizmodo:
Facebook started out as a fun distraction, then it became something integral. And while it’s currently trending towards being an essential part of our lives, will it someday become inescapable? If these graphs are any indicator, then it’s very well possible.
Citi Research conducted a study of the amount of time Americans spent on Facebook. In 2007, Facebook only occupied two percent of people’s days. Fast forward to the present, and it takes up around 16 percent, good for an eightfold increase. Though unlikely, if Facebook’s increase in engagement were to continue at this rate, it would literally consume our entire lives by 2015.
And equally important, as All Things D points out, is how substantially Facebook is outpacing the other major internet players in this category. Microsoft, Yahoo and AOL sites have all been flat or dipping in the amount of time they hold visitors attention. Google’s properties show overall engagement growth, but not nearly as impressive as Facebook’s. The question is, will we come to love and accept Facebook as our central hub for everything internet? Or will they commit some Netflix-esque blunder and cause us all to flee in droves?
Very creative! This is a cool style.
Great fullscreen and HD:
Amy Shackleton is a 25-year-old artist who paints without paint brushes. No, silly, it’s not finger painting or graffiti or spilling paint and calling it a day, it’s real masterpieces that look amazing. She uses squeeze bottles to make them.
Shackleton has recorded a 30-hour paint brush-less painting session that’s been shrunkified into two and a half minutes. Watch the paint streak down as she guides it by spinning the canvas around. I can’t believe she can create her pieces by just using the laws of gravity. [Amy Shackleton via Reddit]
I will have a post soon on passwords in general, but the list of banned Twitter passwords is interesting. And not all bad tweets are from hacked accounts (ala Weinergate)!
Twitter‘s biggest users are no strangers to hackers. Whether due to malicious email attachments or weak passwords, everyone from Lady Gaga to Barack Obama to Ellen DeGeneres has been a target.
Having your account hacked is invariably embarrassing, but the stakes are far higher when malicious messages are sent from a high-profile user like Justin Bieber, who has some 12+ million followers.
The worst hack on record was a Jan. 5, 2009 takeover of some 33 tweeters’ accounts. In efforts to reduce the phenomenon, Twitter has banned more than 400 passwords deemed too “obvious.”
Among Twitter’s top 11 users, Taylor Swift and Shakira are the only two to never experience a hack.
This Vercode infographic explores some of the biggest hacks.
Summer might be over, but nothing is funnier than a couple of videos of a face getting hit by a water balloon (or two)! Check these out:
Summer may be over, but it’s always the season for water balloon fights. Especially when those water balloons don’t pop — and are captured in super slow-motion.
The crew at Smarter Every Day made this video over the weekend at an art festival in Alabama. Using a Vision Research Phantom camera, they managed to slow down the point of impact enough to calculate the frequency at which the target’s nose was vibrating.
And as an added bonus, what’s cooler than a water balloon to the face in slow-motion? Answer: Two water balloons to the face in slow-motion. They don’t pop, either.
