The Boy (2016)

This movie was full of promise and good intentions and actually started out really well.  It had the right elements of creepy and had my attention from the start.  I have a soft spot for horror movies featuring dolls anyway so this one is admittedly right up my alley. Greta (Lauren Cohan) starts a new…

Cinnamon Glazed Pork and Pears

I have always loved pork and apples, it is a winning combination so much so that I am disappointed when a pork dish does not come with an apple side.  But I found some good looking pears at the grocery store and was inspired to try something new. Not least of which because you can…

Good Luck, Bad Luck, And A Little In Between

When I think about luck, good, bad, or otherwise, I think back to the day I met my two roommates, D and M.  They are my best friends, and if it is possible for a person to have two soulmates then these guys are definitely them.  We are crazy, dysfunctional, but whatever it is that…

Lemon and Garlic Baked Sole

It’s been a busy couple of weeks and with that I seem to have lapsed back into my too much take out pizza bad habit.  There have been stages in my life where I have basically lived on pizza and turning into the next drive-thru I come to and calling it dinner, that stage was…

Silver drop Infinity Scarf

I’ve been knitting quite a bit lately, I discovered the testing pool group on ravelry and have been working on quite a few projects by testing out patterns. It’s a lot of fun and slightly addictive, but since none of the patterns have been officially released I can’t really talk about them on the blog…

As Above So Below (2014)

I am not a huge fan of found footage movies, I mean initially I kind of liked the concept but then for a while everything seemed to be a found footage thing and it became overdone. There is just something about the wobbly camera angles that I just don’t enjoy unless the movie is very…

Tea Cakes

Have you ever been in that situation, you want to bake, choose the recipe sure you have all the ingredients and start only to find out part way through that you actually don’t have everything?  I had the oven preheated, my cupcake pans greased and ready to go, the butter, sugar and eggs in a…

Heather Vest

I have recently been struck by the desire to add a few made by me garments to my wardrobe.  I’ve been seeing people wearing some pretty nice looking store bought knits and wondering if maybe I could make that.  So I am going to give that a whirl. I headed over to Ravelry and searched for…

2017 Reading Challenge: March Update

I embarked on the reading challenge to try to find some new books, to shake up my usual taste and take me out of my reading comfort zone.  Hopefully finding some new favorites along the way.  Since I started this challenge in January, I have definitely stepped out of my comfort zone, I’ve picked up…

Cheshire Cat Cowl

When I went looking for this particular project I set out to challenge myself, try something a little bit new.  I had some of the Patons Astra yarn in the All That Girl colorway and I wanted to use it up on something that wasn’t just another hat, I wanted a challenge. What I found…

The Mockingbirds by Daisy Whitney

This was a hard read and even harder to actually sum up my thoughts about.  So much so I had difficulty knowing what to say at all. The basic premise is that a boarding school student is date raped and a secret society within the school called The Mockingbirds steps up to help her out. Thankfully…

Maple Cupcakes

I don’t know about you but I find baking to be incredibly relaxing. There is just something about taking a few cups of flour, sugar and butter and turning it into something else.  And even better, it always results in yummy treats at the end. But not just the deliciousness it produces but the process…
