Thursday Recipe - German Pork Roast
This is a semi-traditional one-dish meal that riffs off the German dish choucroute. I think. I've never made the traditional dish because I've never had all the ingredients in the same place at the same time. It requires sausages, pork ribs, other smoked me...

Thursday Recipe - Blueberry Muffins
Muffins are tasty. And easy. And a little bit tricky, unless you make unfrosted cupcakes and let them masquerade as muffins. That's what most bakery muffins taste like to me. To get a nice, tender muffin, be careful not to overmix them. That's what makes th...

Game Reviews
I spend way too much time playing games. It's my way of dealing with stress. The game landscape has changed, though. It used to be that you would buy a game in the store, bring it home, unpack the disks, spend several hours installing it and setting up your...

Ten Random Thoughts
1. It's Monday. 2. It's raining. Good for the drought, bad for my fibromyalgia. 3. It's spring! Finally. 4. Daffodils are blooming. I love daffodils. 5. Children are annoying. 6. I'm a broken record - "Do your chores and homework" is the only thing I know h...

I Finally Crawled Out of the Dark Ages
I have a smart phone. A cheap, burner smart phone, but it's still a smart phone. I have to say goodbye to my undependable pain-in-the-butt brick that basically just made phone calls. I've been dragged kicking and screaming into the present. No, I'm not a te...

Why I Do Giveaways
It seems like the internet is just a giant steaming pile of spam some days. I hate to feel like I'm adding to it. "Buy my book," I scream as I stand on the street corner in my trenchcoat and hat, flashing book covers at people glancing my way. I'm a book pi...

Thursday Recipe - Man Cakes
Manly enough for a man to make, but tasty enough for a king to eat. Okay, forget that. Too many bad jokes trying to co-exist in that sentence. I realized I haven't posted a basic pancake recipe. They are really easy to make and tasty. Make a good basic panc...

Thursday Recipe - S'more Quesadillas
No, not "some more" quesadillas. S'more quesadillas. Sort of. More like s'more buneulos, but not quite either. My command of Spanish is limited to names of foods and a few numbers and simple things like "buenos dias". Buneulos, according to the all-knowing ...
