Emelie (2016)

Emelie is what I guess could be described as a cautionary tale about babysitters.  Sarah Bolger (known for Tudors and Once Upon A Time) stars as Emelie, a woman who poses as a babysitter to three children – Jacob, Sally, and Christopher.  As the night goes on she becomes increasingly deranged and events unfold from there. …

Paprika Chicken Drumsticks

I have never made chicken legs before, never been brave enough to try it, but I finally decided it was time to try it.  I’ve been cooking for a few months now, so I think I’m getting the hang of this thing.  Both my roommates declared this chicken as awesome so hopefully you guys will…

The Forest (2016)

Okay, so here’s the thing. This movie was almost impossible to track down, finally had to order it online cos absolutely nowhere sold it.  Maybe that should have told me something but when my roommates and I saw the trailer for this last year we were pretty sure we wanted to see it.  It’s a…

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…
