Rey of Sunshine

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… I started my Resistance Rey build. I was excited for this build mainly because it was my “wouldn’t it be nice” cosplay that magically came true by like 85% when Wendy of Chic and Geeks hooked me up with the vest, gauntlets, arm wraps and […]

Oh Hiiiiii! This week has been rainy, and we never get rain here in Southern California, so we celebrate. We celebrate by bundling up, sippin’ on a hot beverage and pretending it is winter. Finally finished a book this week… Anyone ever read a book for like 3 months, when you realistically could finish it […]

I have always wanted to learn how to make multi coloured style pasta so when I got invited along to Pasta Evangelists latest masterclass to learn how to make rainbow pasta it was like being gifted a pot of gold. Pasta Evangelists Who are Pasta Evangelists? Pasta Evangelists was founded in 2017 and is led […]

Stitch's Media Mix

  One half of the ship is a down and out reporter who’s having a hard time of things. The other is a hungry-for-brains symbiote, an extraterrestrial blob that thinks violence is both the question being asked and the answer it deserves. I’m talking about Eddie Brock and Venom, a ship made for monster fuckers […]

As 2018 has been and come to a close, we thought it was about time to finally round up our Australian road trip (apologies we have honestly been meaning to post this for weeks…) and give an update on our lives since moving to Melbourne! We arrived in Melbourne 53 days after first arriving in […]

My World

With doctor’s offices busier than ever, you’re lucky if you get 20 minutes with your M.D. Which is why it’s not surprising that even when it comes to your most vital organ, the advice you receive can sound somewhat boilerplate: Exercise regularly, watch your diet, don’t smoke, and limit your drinking. But how can the […]

Je serai très heureuse de lire vos réponses dans les commentaires ou sur vos blogs (donnez-moi le lien vers vos blogs dans mes commentaires)!

The Quilled Sister

The Story The doorbell sang the arrival of another customer. Preston looked up from the cupcake he was icing. “Good morning, Mrs. Linton! In early today, come on over.” “Morning dearie! Yes I am, lots to do today!” The middle aged woman strolled in wearing her neon-green t-shirt that read ‘Mommies of Vista Middle’ and […]

Prozac & Faith

I woke up this morning to snow outside, a chill in the air, and canceled church. Instead of packing to move into my new apartment next week, I decided to give in to my craving for cinnamon rolls. But, since life happens so quickly–a blink of an eye, really–I didn’t know last night that I […]

January 6, 2019 Episode 1, Signature Challenge: Madeira Cake What is a madeira cake? I think the biggest annoyance with this project will be that there is too much British baking which is totally incomprehensible to my American sensibilities and cookbooks. According to Wikipedia, madeira cake is traditionally drunk with a glass of madeira, but […]

There is a coffee shop near us that does the best carrot cake I have ever had, it is moist and sweet, comes with the most amazing frosting and is vegan, yep vegan, no animal products at all are used in the making of this cake. I am not vegan, not even a tiny bit, but […]

The Barney Bakery

This week I tried out two new recipes. I think I was just in the mood to bake. It gets my mind off other things and tends to help me relax. It was a crazy week at work. I swear there must be a full moon around the corner. But aside from that these recipes […]
