    Agreed with Shannon. I’m a senior in HS and I’ve been bogged down with a lot of college app stuff lately, but that last link made me feel much better. Thank you <3

    I’ve made something very similar to that cookie recipe a few times. They’re very tasty, but make sure you *chill the dough*. Do not skip that step. I gave my version of the recipe to a friend, who skipped the chill step and wound up with one very large, very thin cookie. Still tasty, though. However, you can shave off some time by portioning and filling the cookies and sticking the whole cookie sheet in the freezer for around 10 or 15 minutes.

    Those milkshakes look delicious. I recently made a coffee malt, which for some bizarre reason I’d never thought to do before, and it was *amazing*.

    And finally, if we’re talking coming of age stories, I have to plug Ray Bradbury. Any of the Greentown books are great and fit the theme–I love them so much I’ve read Dandelion Wine every June and Something Wicked This Way Comes every October since middle school, and usually reread the others yearly also–but I’d go with Dandelion Wine if I had to pick just one.
