Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies
I do not eat raw bananas but will devour any banana flavored or baked goodies. It’s one of those weird things about myself and my toddler inherited too LOL. In fact, I love baking with ripened bananas. You know when they get so disgustingly brown and ready to smush? So variations of banana breads and muffins are something that I regularly bake for my family. The little one especially loves...

Jason thinks I’m crazy for mentioning...

Damn Delicious: Meyer Lemon and Matcha Marble... →
damndelicious: I love making muffins. That’s just a fact. But do you know what I hate making? Anything that uses a loaf pan. It’s my krytopnite. Seriously, every time I set out to make a loaf, it is an utter disaster. I put way too much batter into the pan so the sides burn up and then the middle doesn’t… I must try this recipe…soon.
Yes…I was delighted today to receive a recipe for strawberry fudge! I’ll share after I make a test trial batch :) stay tuned!
Just cook up my order please.
So yesterday, I'm starving after walking around 10 miles at the Zoo followed by shopping around the mall...in heels.
I'm patiently waiting for my bento box order to be cooked fresh to order when I notice the hibachi cook keeps smiling at me and is speaking Chinese to his fellow cook. I smile back thinking maybe this will speed it up only to be bombarded by cries of "China?! China?!?"
Hibachi cook: *outburst of Chinese*
Me: "uhhhh no?"
Hibachi cook: "You China?"
Hibachi cook: *while cooking away* "Japan? Japan?"
Im not Chinese nor Japanese and I just want my cheap hibachi mall food!!!
At this point, I'm annoyed and about to faint from hunger. To make things worse, he's clearly talking about me to his fellow cook like straight up pointing at me and saying something about "Japan".
So I retorted "NO! My food??? Ready??"
I conclude that a small part of me must enjoy being tortured. Why else would I browse through and fixate upon countless and glorious images of food at this hour? 2am. From sweets, to junk food, to beautifully crafted cuisine- I yearn. It’s not like I’m going to succumb to my cravings at this hour! Instead, I lay here looking at the pictures while I pine away and think to myself...
A Sad Glimpse
I have a habit of noticing small things that in passing that just MOVE me-sometimes evoking happiness and other times sadness. Catching glimpses of someone else’s life based on simple things they say and or reactions in a given situation. Yes-perhaps I could be mistaken seeing that they are based on impressions and assumptions but REAL nonetheless. Today, as I waited for our lunch order at...
Husband: “umm Hunnie u have something on ur eye. What is that sparkly stuff on ur eye? Is that…*pause* glitter?” Me: “yes it’s glitter…sparkles…u know eye makeup. I did it on purpose.” Husband: “ohhhhh. *pause n genuine look of confusion* why do u have glitter on ur eyes during the day though? Isn’t it for clubbing? It’s not...
Sometimes…a million zillion thoughts and ideas race through my head. I fear that if I don’t express them that they will just disappear and become nothing but a waste-only to leave me feeling unsatisfied and somewhat empty. Sometimes…I try to visualize how I will look or what I will be doing when I’m “old”. Old as in 50 yrs and up. I know its not really that...

rescuing broken robots
ive always had a weakness for trying to fix things and rescuing people that are in distress. i guess i feel a huge sense of accomplishment- when i know that i did IT- that lil ole me made a difference in someone’s life for the better- whether it be a small thing or a life changing big thing. maybe its my empathic nature or my motherly instinct, but i like taking care of people and putting a...
Yesterday Dyl refused to eat his dinner. I guess he gets cravings like I do bc I had a feeling he might want pizza. So we took him to local pizzeria n got him a plain cheese slice. Low n behold, he had a huge smile on his face as he exclaimed “pizza!”

She’s actually on her period right now.” Me: “Eww. I bet shes like dying to have sex. It’s only natural- I bet ITS all swollen n purple...
Crafty Shit: Tangerine Candles
fritesandfries: Do you know what you can do with tangerines? Make candles! You don’t need wax or anything fancy — just a couple of matches and a carefully hallowed out tangerine will do. I also used a tiny cookie cutter to make the snazzy cut-out on top… …but you can make cut-outs or designs with a sharp knife if you’re feeling really artsy. Now on to the directions! Read More

crock pot experimentations: BBQ Pulled Pork
So now that I have been living in the North, I am in cold weather-sphere and my lil crock pot has come in handy. The downfall of living up North and coming from the South is that I get so annoyed at all the weak attempts at BBQ and lack of BBQ made properly! So I got an insane craving for BBQ pulled pork the other day- let me clarify- like melt in your mouth- perfectly shredded and sauced BBQ...
why steve jobs may be the devil
The following entry was written by my buddy “who notices weird shit”. but that’s okay because I AM THE QUEEN OF WEIRD SHIT.

The following blog is why I came to the conclusion that Steve Jobs, head of Apple, is the true Devil. First and foremost, I would...

Why having a toddler is like being at a frat party
Saw this posted in a forum. Made me giggle. Why having a toddler is like being at a frat party There are half-full, brightly-colored plastic cups on the floor in every room. Three are in the bathtub. There’s always that one girl, bawling her eyes out in a corner. It’s best not to assume that the person closest to you has any control over their digestive function. You sneak off...
How To Live in New York City →
teresawu: (via theotherjen:thoughtcatalog) Move here when you’re 18 or 22, maybe even 24. Come from somewhere else-the north, south, west, Xanadu- and come to realize that everyone living in New York is a transplant. Even the ones who grew up on the Upper East Side end up moving into a place downtown, which, as you’ll soon discover, is like moving to a different city. Discover the cruel and...

smitten with cilantro
I absolutely LOVE the fresh aroma, refreshing taste and strong palate cleansing flavor cilantro brings. I really don’t understand the disgust of the average Korean when they taste cilantro in a dish. These cilantro haters* always grimace when they smell it and always ask for no cilantro in their pho. My brother in law’s fiance is a perfect example of a cilantro hater. We recently...
