I miss +Capin Chip​ and his cookery. I also miss +Kyla Myers​, but Chip is obviously starring in this exposé. Well...he's a supporting actor, Pizza is the star.

New cookie project. I thickened up the icing this time and I definitely got a finer line but I may need to thicken it up a bit more because it still came out of my super tiny tips a bit fast for very delicate lines. Still, I think I'm making progress.

I did a bit of painting on this for shading and used a bit of edible lace for the shawl, as well.

Cookie inspiration based on art by Catbox Art Studio:

What is the price of sexual violence, and when will society start to realise how comprehensive this debt is?

Second attempt at Kai Winn cookie went a bit better. In spite of using super tiny 00 tips my lines are too thick. I think perhaps my icing is too thin. I'm going to try making a thicker batch for the next cookie. Time to try something different, I think.

You should!

I ponder off and on doing a cookie thing simply because of better transportability. I have a really good idea for a special techniques display (that you would love) but transport is scary for that idea...

I know everyone would just be so happy if you finally got a chance to enter. <3

Something about fall always makes the thought of maple baked items sound good to me. Add in bacon and you've got a sure fire winner.

There's a place in town that makes a maple bourbon bacon doughnut with big pieces of bacon on top for ultimate visual impact.
They. Are. Divine.

Good for these girls. Now if we could just get the rest of the US to stop objectifying our girls.
Portland Public Schools' new policy could be a game-changer.

Tell me again how peaceful protesters are disrespecting our nation. TELL ME AGAIN.

Tell me what you think he could have done differently. How the cops were right. How this wasn't summary execution for being black.

Can we talk about racism in this country now? No more "I don't see color" bullshit with a blue lives matter hashtag after it?

Fuck this victim-blaming, truth-avoidance culture we have.
The videos seem to contradict the department’s initial explanation.

My friend, +Akiko White makes amazing cakes. She calls herself a Cakelustrator because she illustrates her books with cakes. She's a wonderful artist and took first place at our show two years ago with a fabulous pied piper cake.

She also makes some of the most adorable and amazing cakes for book signings and events for other authors. She recently did one for Captain Underpants that was just adorable. If you follow me for cake postings be sure to follow Akiko's posts, too.

This sounds yummy.
Seasoned stock keeps this meatloaf juicy and flavorful. A doctored ketchup delivers just the right amount of tang, spice, and sweetness. And the bacon? We think it speaks for itself. This is part of BA's Best, a collection of our essential recipes.

Story
Introduction
I am silly, fun-loving and tactile. I wear glasses. I have freckles across the back of my shoulders.

I am stubborn, loyal and creative. I like Monty Python.

I am a geek, a traveler, a food snob, a reader, a woman, a child, a lover and a gamer.

I love to travel. I love to stay at home. I am ambitious, I am a dreamer, I am a visionary, I am lazy, I am unmotivated. I want to live off of the land and be wholly self-sufficient, and yet...I love technology.

I can't refuse chocolate. I want to be thin and healthy but I don't need to be a Barbie doll.

I am sarcastic, witty and I like puns.

I love to read. I read sci-fi, fantasy, mysteries, classic literature, suspense, biographies, poetry, satire, editorials, and anything else that catches my eye, including the back of the cereal box.

I love music.  I was raised on musicals, classical and Queen. Some favorites include Warren Zevon, Robert Earl Keene, King Crimson, XTC just to name a few.

I like movies, and have fairly simple criteria for what makes a movie good; either it makes me cry, it makes me laugh, it makes me think, or it hits so close to home it's painful. And then there's the occasional things that just grab me for reasons I can't even pinpoint, like Goonies, The Princess Bride, Unbreakable and RHPS. And, of course, the Lord of the Rings movies and the Harry Potter movies.

I don't watch a lot of TV. Most of the things I've loved are no longer showing, things like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, X-Files, Angel and Dollhouse. If you love something don't let me watch it. I am the death knell to good shows.

I like Iron Chef, and most anything on the Food Network. I'm a Food Network, History Channel, and Discovery Channel junkie. I dare not even watch those channels for fear of getting sucked in for the entire day!

I love the theater, ballet, and opera. Shakespeare in particular.

I love power tools.

I believe in faeries, dragons, integrity, friendship, beauty, honesty, open-mindedness, laughter, equality, pride, education, self-responsibility, animal rights, magic, embracing your inner child, introspection, loyalty, and love.

I love thunderstorms, candlelight, sushi, oysters, the ocean, music, flouncy dresses, Cherry Dr Peppers, rain, bonfires, Europe, intellectual stimulation, hot showers, full body massages, bookstores, nonconformists, gemstones (especially garnets), huge fluffy bath towels, women not afraid of their own intellect, tea, genuine people, and coffee.

I loathe willful ignorance, Microsoft (okay, I just get frustrated with MS, I don't really hate them), habitual cattiness, betrayal, meanness, pretentiousness, censorship, dishonesty, animal abuse, trendy boy bands, repression of minorities, conformity, Bush (the "president," not the band or the body part), shallowness, misogyny, hypocritical Christians (redundant?), intolerance, stupid prejudices (race, religion, gender, sexuality), pettiness, organized religion, duplicity, cowardice, supposition, blatant hypocrisy,reality TV and the fact that I've read every Xanth novel ever written.

Phil's Icehouse is a really great place to go when you want to sit outside and enjoy the nice weather or when you have kids who will need to blow off a little energy. The Icehouse is conveniently sharing space with the fabulous Amy's Ice Cream so you can eat your delicious hamburgers from Phil's then trot next door and grab an ice cream. The playground has a big outdoor playset complete with slides and spinning flowers and cows. Yes, cows your kinds can climb. There is seating inside but it's limited. They have a great selection of burgers. I particularly love their mini burgers. You can even get a basket of 3 mini burgers so you can try more than one burger at a time. They have some of the best sweet potato fries in Austin but you can get a mixed basket of regular and sweet potatoes or even onion rings which are thin and lightly coated.

Brunch at Stubb's is a bit of an Austin institution so of course, when we had visitors from Scotland, we made reservations. The brisket was just fabulous and although we couldn't get seats near the band, the music wafted up the stairs to provide a lovely backdrop to our conversation. The fruit was fresh and tasty and they have a wonderful Bloody Mary bar. I let them make mine and it was spicy and delicious. I'd highly recommend it, especially if you have visitors from out of town!

Elizabeth Street Cafe is an adorable little restaurant that shares a parking lot with the amazing Gordough's. While I wouldn't go here for very traditional Vietnamese cuisine, the food was an excellent fusion of Vietnamese, French and American. The eggrolls were very tasty and the Grilled Marinated Pork BÁNH MÌ I had was wonderful. I think they really excel at their French pastries and desserts. We had a small variety and my favourite, by far, was their macarons which are only made with natural ingredients. I'd definitely go back. And I did! We sat down for brunch at Elizabeth Street Cafe yesterday. I was intrigued with their breakfast Bahn Mi. I had mine with pork belly and it was just divine! My husband had the Singapore Noodles with a poached egg and he was not disappointed. It was a mild day and we sat outside with friends for a very enjoyable start to the day.

I visited the Brick House Tavern for lunch today along with my husband and two friends. It's really very nice inside and it's large enough that seating was not a problem. They have a nice big fireplace which adds to the cozy ambiance. The wait staff is very pleasant and the menu looked pretty good. I had the Fish & Chips which wasn't bad but it was overly salty. Otherwise I would have loved all the bits of batter flakes on the plate. My husband had the prosciutto wrapped meatloaf which he enjoyed but found a bit one dimensional and quickly got bored with. My girlfriend had the Zucchini Curls which were apparently delicious and her husband had a burger which he quite enjoyed. I think we'll give this another go and try a few more options before writing it off.

In general, I love Tapas bars. It's nice to step outside of your day to day likes and dislikes and try something new without having to order a big dish. Barlata is a bright, noisy place on a Saturday night but not so loud that you can't hear your dinner companions. Our waiter was wonderful. He looked a bit like Anthony Bourdain and was very conscientious of our friends who have allergies and made sure every dish was safe without being overly dramatic about it. We probably ordered one of everything on the menu and we were not disappointed. From olives to mussels to short ribs, everything was prepared and served beautifully. Our out of town dinner guests were delighted. The cocktails were also delicious and my friend from Scotland was crazy about the Bee's Knee's.

I was out delivering a cake today at Avery Ranch with my husband as the muscle. As it was lunchtime and Z'Tejas was nearby we decided to stop in for some lunch. The restaurant was only moderately busy (at 12:30ish) and there were three people badly trying to seat people. It was a bit of a cluster. We got our seats and my husband chose the Scrambled Eggs & Jalapeño Bacon Stuffed Relleno. For those of you who don't know, the word Relleno means stuffed. When the dish arrived it had the scrambled eggs under the pablano which was covered in sauce. While it tasted good, it was by no means stuffed. The menu title and description was hugely misleading. I had the Z burger which was quite good as well as the sweet potato fries, which were perfect. Our waiter was very nice and attentive.

This is our second year visiting the UK where we had dinner on multiple occasions at The Roebuck. At all times the staff is wonderfully attentive and the food has been both visually appealing and delicious. Their fish and chips are fantastic and their pies have the most beautiful crusts.They even have options for vegetarians! Their portions are huge so don't be afraid to share with a friend!
