I love cookies. Seriously, I have a problem. I’m pretty much Cookie Monster without the blue fur, but not for lack of trying. Christmas and Girl Scout Cookie time are my danger seasons, but I’m pretty much a menace all year round when it comes to the little round circles of joy.
Wait. Did I say round? Because here’s something to change things up: a state of Louisiana cookie cutter, which is pretty amazing.
While I worry that some of the fiddly bits around New Orleans might be hard to get out of the cookie cutter intact, it doesn’t really matter. Eating a cookie in the shape of our great state would be a fun time, even with bits broken off here and there.
The only question is, what kind of cookies should I make with it? Does Louisiana have a state cookie?
Are you a Louisiana native who moved away from the Pelican State for some inexplicable reason and now you’re homesick for the bayou? No problem! This candle will sort you out.
Scented with “magnolias and a hint of Sugartown melons”, the There’s no place like home Louisiana Scented Candle can whisk you right back to the land of good food and good times. And good smells, too.
Louisiana, more than any other state in the country, is known for its cuisine, so if there’s a better way to prepare your food than on a cutting board shaped like our great state, I don’t know what it is.
In a book about a fictional version of Louisiana he called Genua, Sir Terry Pratchett once described our cuisine more accurately than anyone I’ve ever heard:
The point was that a good Genuan (Louisianan) cook could more or less take the squeezings of a handful of mud, a few dead leaves and a pinch or two of some unpronounceable herbs and produce a meal to make a gourmet burst into tears of gratitude and swear to be a better person for the rest of their entire life if they could just have one more plateful.
Ain’t that the truth?
If there’s one thing anyone who has ever lived in Louisiana loves more than our food, it’s LSU. Now you can take the magic of a really good Tigers cheer with you wherever you go, thanks to this unique Barbie doll.
She comes dressed in her team uniform, and even has purple and gold pompoms to really get you in the winning spirit.
Why not buy one to sit next to you on the couch while you watch the game on TV? Your team spirit could very well be the tipping point the Tigers need one day.
Don’t let them down.
Have you ever wanted to hang a photo of legendary burlesque icon, Blaze Starr, on the wall of your man cave to remind you of just how amazing Louisiana is? Well, now you can!
Blaze Starr famously had an affair with Governor Earl K. Long, which isn’t really very shocking in 2017’s scandal-a-day world, but it was a pretty big deal back in the ’40s and ’50s.
Now you can own a piece of our scandalous history with this signed photo of the most recognizable mistresses of one of our former governors.
And people say history is boring!
