Bake Like a Rock Star

Make Kurt Cobain’s no-bake cookies and his mom’s shrimp pasta salad

Laura of Eating the Beats stumbled across two recipes in Kurt Cobain’s journals — no-bake cookies and his mother’s shrimp pasta salad (Note: Where is the shrimp in the recipe?). Laura's verdict on the "insanely sticky" cookies: "They were really good! Tasted like any other no-bakes, except without the peanut butter." She suggests leaving them overnight in the fridge.

See below for photos, courtesy of Laura, and transcripts. Especially awesome: the king of grunge’s doodles of what looks like a mushroom and a clown named Chris.
