All Things Thursday: 3rd Edition


Good Evening!

It’s All Things Thursday…Thursday night, actually.

Yeah, I’m a little on the late-freight this week. It happens. Let’s dive right in, shall we?

So…recently, Sinead O’Connor wrote an open letter to Miley Cyrus where she admonished the young lady(?) about the dangers of making a name for herself through shock value. Really, Sinead? Aren’t you one who ripped up a picture of the pope on SNL? Because I’m pretty sure that was you.

Apparently, there’s a new baking tool out there called the Nibble Pan. It has a tiny side cup that cooks a sample of your cake. It would seem that the tiny part would cook faster, but I could be wrong. Kinda waiting for the first review from Amazon to see what the people think.

My love of peanut butter knows no bounds. Best believe I need the Peanut Butter Comfort cookbook. It contains virtually ever kind of peanut butter recipe out there! Hint: my birthday is in August.

October is here…which means Fall…which means bring on the pumpkin. Could someone make Joy the Baker’s Pumpkin Pie Pop Tarts for me? Extra maple glaze, please! I would be ever so grateful.

That’s all for tonight, friends. Parks and Recreation is calling my name.

All Things Thursday: 2nd Edition


Hello again!

It’s All Things Thursday and I’ve been thinking on things.

Last week, I read about something called in vitro meat. Meat that vegans could consume without guilt. Actual meat made in a lab from cow stem cells. What? Meat that’s grown in a petrie dish? Is it just me or is that kinda creepy?

The father-daughter team over at Herriott Grace make the most beautiful wooden pieces-spoons, bowls, and rolling pins, amongst other things. Personally, I’d like to purchase every spoon they’ve ever made. It’s functional art people. Get into it.

The new Fall TV season is here. I should be super-excited, but here’s what I’ve been wondering…when does season 2 of Hannibal begin?

Does anybody know their way around some Beer Mancakes? Yeah, me neither. Just the title alone has me intrigued. Perhaps, this weekend, I’ll try to whip up a batch from scratch.

I can’t seem to get this song outta my head. If you press play, undoubtedly, you’ll have the same problem. Proceed with caution…What Does the Fox Say?

I think there was more but it’s time for a hot tea and some Nutella-dotted peanut butter cookies. Until we meet again, my friends.


Give me the luxuries of life and I will willingly do without the necessities.

All Things Thursday: 1st Edition

Teal Blue Scarf

Hey there…

It’s Thursday. You probably know that already, but I thought I’d mention it anyway. Welcome to All things Thursday!

I thought I’d take this day and share with you all the things I think about when I drive to school…or when I tune out the boring people I encounter sometimes.

While facebooking the other day I spotted this ad. It’s called PooPourri. Yeah, this is not a joke. You spray it the toilet bowl before you do your…um, business. Supposedly, it traps the funk in the bowl and instead, disperses a pleasing aroma. So, if you’re thinking about dropping a deuce at work, you might wanna cop some of this stuff first.

This Butternut Squash & Chorizo Shells over at Wit & Vinegar looks pretty freaking tasty. Now, if only I can figure out a way to low carb it. When I do, I’ll stuff the whole dish in my face.

I can bake a delicious cake but I do not possess the decorating skills do this. It’s a bit early, but I must have this Jack Skeleton Cake by My Magical Pastries.

I don’t know anything about smokers or brisket, but I’d like to sink my teeth into the Civilized Caveman’s huge slab of meat. Cue the penis jokes.

Replace the pasta with veggies and make Simply Gluten Free’s Gluten Free Eggplant Lasagna. Did you see how much cheese is in that recipe? And it’s low carb? Sign me up!

Did you know that cut-food photography is a thing? Well, Beth Galton made it a thing. Please check out her phenomenal portfolio. She’s truly inspiring.

Those of you who shop there know what’s up. Stop by The Huffington Post and read Kelly MacLean’s article¬†Surviving Wholefoods…then thank her for the laughs.

P.S. Do you like my Bella Looma Scarf? Isn’t it the most perfect shade of blue-green. Yeah, I think so too.


Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
