I’m BACK! #AtoZChallenge & more!

After a renewed cyber-bully attack based on a review I did in September I took a break which began on March 5th. I focused on healing and my graphics and went through blog tour withdrawals.

I am back with a bang & with the #AtoZChallenge (third year running). Click on the image to check out my theme! I also will be posting a few other things!

Late Night Reading & Latkes – Shadows of Fate by @AngelaDennis #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 14, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Bewitching Tours, Books, Breakfast, Cabin Cooking, Mama's Kitchen Mondays, Review & a Recipe, Reviews | 0 comments

L-is-for-Late-Night-Reading-and-LatkeOne of my favorite things, other than bacon, are potatoes. I love potatoes, and corn ya I love corn too but this is about potatoes. I also adore pancakes so blending pancakes and potatoes? Latke! My grandmother use to make them out of Sweet Potatoes or Yams (yes there is a difference but that is for another time) I am sure you have figured out by now that the majority of my recipes are not ones for your diet journal. Not because I eat like this all the time but they just happen to be some of my favorite tried and true recipes. Today is Mama’s Kitchen Mondays so I paired with a book review and my #AtoZChallenge post.

K is for a Kriss Kitchen Classic – Southern Fried Chicken Pasties #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 12, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Bacon, Books, Cabin Cooking, Poultry | 2 comments

K-is-forOne of my projects is a couple of cook books. One of which I am calling “Duct Tape and a Ketchup Packet“. The basic premise was even if you think you have nothing, there are still things to create a gourmet meal out of even if it is just a couple of liberated condiments and dips. In this instance I found a lonely KFC BBQ sauce in the deli drawer which happened to be on top of a package of pie crust. This ended up be orgasmic, seriously I thought Geoff was going to.. umm well you get the picture!

I is for Irish Cake Bombs – #AtoZChallenge #Recipe

Posted by on Apr 10, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Cabin Cooking, Dessert | 8 comments

cakbomb-buttonIrish Cake Bombs! More commonly known as Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes because they are based on the fancy bar shots and considering that I have a bit of Irish blood in me, these are a favorite for a big treat in the house. They take a bit of work but are not difficult. I love ganache and Geoff is in love with the cake itself. I usually end up with only 16 or so to finish because the man insists on eating the hot Guinness chocolate cake. Stout is a lovely thing to cook with and like Bacon it can be used in sweet and savory dishes, dessert and meaty main dishes! I hope you enjoy my COOKING portion of my theme today. This particular recipe was shared to me from Amy Del Rosso of Lady Reader’s Book Stuff, because she loves me lots!

D is for a Dry Cabin… this is how I roll in #Alaska – #AtoZChallenge

Posted by on Apr 4, 2014 in #AtoZChallenge, Alaska Living | 21 comments

D-is-for-Dry-CabinDid you know that over 40% of the people who live in the Fairbanks and Ester area have no running water? Those that have taps and some heaters also still have to haul it in because they basically just have a water tank and a small water pump with a small heater. It is more convenience than anything but it is better than what I have. We have what technically is called a grey-water cabin because we have a sink which we drain our wash, pasta water etc… into a five-gallon bucket that we dump into a our grey water drainage tank (one of our two tanks, outhouse and grey-water which we have pumped). It is a real cabin too! With logs and everything! Don’t worry I will include photos, but first…. lets talk about being dry!
