Mini Baked Alaskas

"Baked Alaska" has been on my cooking bucket list for some time, but I didn't think I'd ever get around to it, because it's meant for a large group. After all, what can you do with a huge dome of cake, ice cream and baked meringue once you've taken out that single piece to photograph and taste, when you live alone? Until I thought of making a mini baked Alaska.

And, being the good planner that I am (this is a blatant lie, but it SOUNDS good, doesn't it?) I had conveniently made and frozen away a cake round just for the purpose. It came from a mix (butter pecan) and I had used the rest of it for the lemon curd and mixed berry sauce trifles I posted a while ago. I used some of the peach sorbet from a couple of posts back and a purchased French Vanilla ice cream on top of the cake. And the egg whites, for the meringue, were left over from my lemon poppyseed bundt cake.

Economical, easy and very tasty.

Anime - Sword Art Online

If you're into Anime, then I HIGHLY recommend Sword Art Online. I've gotten into the habit of turning something on while I run (in place) and I turned this on yesterday and never stopped watching it!

The plot of the series is that people get stuck in the new virtual game (by the game developer's design,) and the only way out is to beat all 100 floors. If you die in the game, you die in real life. This is achieved because of the virtual reality headgear that you use to sign on, it'll send an electrical pulse to your brain and you'll die. Same goes for if someone tries to take the gear off you. Why? Because the headgear is ALSO designed by the game developer.

It follows Kirito, one of the lucky 1,000 to Beta Test, but he's very much a nomad and intent on going the game alone. So, while we see friendships, it's not always the same people or story. I'm not always fond of this style, but I find it perfect for this type of plot.

If you're interested in watching it, you can watch it for free at the following links:

:) Tree!

This is one of my favorite trees! The colors are some of my favorites and I just love how it came out.

Since the colors reminded me of sea foam, I tried to do some sort of wavey-type things with the arrangements of the beads. That didn't quite work out, but the end result is just as good! You can't tell from the pictures, but the overall shape resembles coral reef.

Also... octopus roots!

Falling In Love With You... | One-Shot

Title; Falling In Love With You...
Fandom; Glee
Words; 2522 Words
Rating; G
Warnings; None.
Characters; Blaine Anderson/Sebastian Smythe, Minor Blaine Anderson/Kurt Hummel
Summary; Because of his status as a non-human, Blaine isn't allowed to fall in love. Unless he meets his soulmate, the one that he's destined to be with. But that will never happen. He knows that. Blaine just doesn't have that kind of luck.
Notes; Written for Day 5 - Paranormal/Fantasy at Seblaine Week on Tumblr.

Fanfiction.net | ao3 | Tumblr

'I'm sorry that they broke,' Blaine says quietly, an automatic response although he can't help but think about what the other boy had just said and he glances around, a prickly feeling sliding up his spine. How many times has he heard words like that? It's the kind of things that people say when they meet their soulmates. Collapse )

38 weeks...

Yeah. I'm super bummed right now, sitting at Starbucks, wallowing in a latte.

Just had my (few days past) 38 week check. Still nothing. Soft cervix. That's. It. Nothing. I was dilated with Ivy by 37 weeks!!! I'm measuring dead on my date but noooothing.

I know I'm whining over nothing. I'm in really good health, I've been taking 2 mile walks EVERY DAY!!! I'm gonna go get evening primrose oil because I hear it helps. I just want my body back real bad.

... Plus, I start school on August 18th, and I have to get a job and start work by a certain date in order to finish my internship so I can graduate in December. A very late baby is gonna put a major wrench in plans.

I also REALLY don't want an induction. No drugs. No pitocin. No epidural. I want to have my natural woman experience, darnit.

... I did agree to an August induction should she pass 42 weeks.

I'm being really pessimistic. I need to relax. There's still plenty of time. Just gotta keep walking. Walking. Walking.

I walked 2 miles to go to the gas station two nights ago to buy a pack of mini powdered donuts that ivy ate half of before I could get one. I guess it was meant to be. I didn't need all the calories. And goodness, she sure does.

Hoping to crack 30lbs by age 3. She's just so... petite. Healthy! But petite. I've been making her black bean protein balls and convincing her she's eating chocolate truffles. Don't judge me! I'm desperate.

I read the new issue of Parents magazine past night and got weepy over all the newborn pictures. :/ *sigh*

Pray for me, my friends. A baby in 10 days? That would be stellar.

I'll leave you with some sweet Ivy pictures, because, well, she's pretty cute.

Guess where I sleep?

Y'know how sometimes ideas sit in the back of your mind and fester?

(Meant to crosspost this here yesterday and totally forgot - oops, so here it is now :))

Well I've had that for a while now and I've finally done something about it.

One of the novels I have written (almost my favourite) is Advent, but it doesn't sell. This has been bothering me and I finally decided that there were at least two things I could change to help with that (I've already tried changing the blurb at least twice :)):

  • the title
  • the cover

Life - No empty subject lines here

So I am massively behind on everything. I've had virtually no time to be online for the past few weeks and then I got super sick. I've never felt as sick as I did yesterday. I was so dizzy I was laying down and felt like I had to grab the bed to keep from falling off. Horrible.

Anyway. So. The cruise line that I applied to a few weeks ago called me back. I spent three days training with a team. And I got a call a few days ago asking if I'd like to work for them. It's a 12 week temporary position. They won't have me back but I don't think that it's something that I'd like to do indefinitely anyway. As soon as I come back, I'll need to go to classes for college. And for my first semester, I'll be doing some online classes (ugh) but I'll manage.

I'll be leaving on Friday and I'm really excited for it. It's good money and a good experience for my resume. The only problem is that I get no days off for that 12 weeks. I'm a bit terrified. But it'll be good for me, I'm sure.

So catching up on everything by Friday (I don't even remember everything that I have to catch up on after being away and then sick) and then hopefully I'll have wifi to be around at least a bit. I'll be taking my computer since I hope to do my online classes on the boat. Although, come on. I'll be docking in some badass places so no promises on being around too much.
