How the Grinch Stole Christmas Max Macarons

The Grinch Max Macarons

“Here’s your motivation: Your name is Rudolph, you’re a freak with a red nose, and no one likes you.”

– The Grinch

From the whimsical pages of Dr. Suess’ picture book, to the colorful 1966 animated short, The Grinch has been a staple in the Christmas season for fifty years. In fact, the original book was published on December 25th, 1956. The original Grinch wasn’t green, but instead just black and white with pink eyes. He gained his green color in the animated movie, and that aesthetic decision carried over to the 2000 live action film.

Starring Jim Carrey, How the Grinch Stole Christmas played a major role in my childhood. So much so, that my twelve-year-old self decided to be Cindy Lou Who for Halloween- right at the peak of my awkward stage (I will burn every photo). However, those cringe-worthy pictures won’t stop me from quoting the classic movie all year round. With a combination of improv and excellent writing, Jim Carrey brings the begrudging green giant to life in the most hilarious way.

Bob’s Burgers Macarons

Bob's Burgers Macarons

Through seven burger-slinging seasons and counting, the Belcher family has won over the hearts of viewers everywhere.

It’s all too easy to route for Bob and Lisa as they struggle to simultaneously run a burger joint and keep up with their three rambunctious kids. The show finds its success not through the absurdity that many animated shows embrace, but rather with the undeniable relatability and hilariousness of a dysfunctional family.

Bloody Scream Macarons

Scream Macarons

The Movie

The groundbreaking 1996 slasher film Scream was the first gory flick to successfully cross over into the mainstream, paving the way for future films in the genre. The film lead to 3 sequels and an MTV episodic remake. Most importantly, it created one of the most recognizable killers- Ghostface. The mask for Ghostface, reportedly found by the director when scouting for locations, is a simple Halloween store mask. To be honest, it’s not even that scary looking! However, the success and scares brought by Scream make the black and white mask an iconic and unforgettable image.

Homemade Circus Cookies

Keeping with these month’s theme, here is the obligatory “Do you remember these?!?!”
But really, do you?? They are so tasty, and addicting, and it’s very easy to eat far too many of them. I have not had them in many years, so I was exciting to do a homemade recreation.
Now, I didn’t have any animal cookie cutters. I could have easily invested in some, they can be found here on Amazon if you are interested in baking up some A+ replicas. As for me, I had a set of tiny cookie cutters of different shapes, and as a poor college student I figured they would more than suffice. The hearts and stars were just as delicious to eat!
