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!

Cupcakes and Pilates with @MCDoidge #FourthWallFriday

Posted by on Jan 10, 2014 in Authors, Books, Dessert, Fourth-Wall Friday, Giveaways & Contests | 15 comments

Welcome Meghan Ciana Doidge author of many lovely stories which also include the Dowser Series. (ohh she has a post apocalyptic book too peeps!) You may remember the blast I did for #2, Trinkets, Treasures, and Other Bloody Magic for Book Nerd Tours? Well She decided to have some fun with a Fourth-Wall Friday challenge! Like many authors she needed to get her muse in the groove so she went and did some Pilates, because you know yoga, it always helps the brain flow better. Problem with excersize? It also causes you munchies a bit hungry … perhaps? Oh and if you’re an author, it drags you into your own world of make belief.. or is it? All I know is I want a dozen cupcakes now! Oh and check out the bottom I have a special giveaway for a US winner! (INT winner will be a Kindle version of it). Oh and so here are two out of three of great things… cupcakes and a giveaway.. I am not into bending and sweating. I like my Pilates with wind chimes and a yogi… and a nap afterwards… oh and a cupcake…

Christmas is the season the Gingerbread Café was made for…but owner Lily couldn’t be feeling less merry if she tried. She’s spent another year dreaming of being whisked away on a sleigh-ride for two, but she’s facing festive season alone – again. And, just to give her another reason to feel anything other than candy-cane perky, a new shop across the road has opened… Not only is it selling baked goods, but the owner, with his seriously charming smile, has every girl in town swooning.

But Lily isn’t about to let her business crumble — the Gingerbread Café is the heart of the community, and she’s going to fight for it! This could be the Christmas that maybe, just maybe, all her dreams – even the someone-to-decorate-the-Christmas-tree-with ones – really do come true!

Welcome to the last week of hardcore baking time before the fat man cometh! Mama’s Kitchen Mondays has a special treat! I have a special guest who wrote this lovely little Novelette, Christmas at the Gingerbread Cafe, a sweet and savory contemporary romance. When I saw this I thought how fun to do a review for my recipe feature! After reading the story I knew exactly what recipe I was going to do! Heck they even make almost the same one in the story. On Christmas, heck anytime between fall and the new year, I love Gingerbread coffee. My grandmother introduced it to me and this is a holiday season tradition you will find in my fridge!

Rosettes - cabingoddess.com recipeI love baking for Yule and Christmas! I have not been able to do this year everything I would like too, but since we get to spend Christmas at the Ninja Warming station on Fort Hood (the folks who kept us safe during the winter storm and who I made special Frostie Floats for), I will get to bake more than I expected. HOWEVER, I usually do but these little dandies which are one of my favorites!

You know your life has hit rock bottom when you’re living off cooked rats and showering once every few months—if you’re lucky. But for Jackson Hart things are about to get a whole lot worse. When her best friend, Tye, disappears hunting for food, kick-ass Jackson’s ‘head south to safety’ plan looks like it’s dead before it’s even begun. But then she meets ex-mechanic Luke Granger, who takes her to his bunker, feeds her with non-rat based food, and offers her protection against the zombie hordes—not that she needs it. She knows how to use a machete and isn’t afraid to.

Jackson was tempted to stay in the city with her rescuer. Food, shampoo and the possibility of finally getting laid, what more could she ask for? But the flesh eaters are getting smarter and the bunker is compromised, so Jackson and Luke have no choice but to make the journey south

Luke and Jackson team up to find other humans in a road-trip romance for the ages. They travel for thousands of miles with zombies shadowing their every move. They must utilize every resource at their disposal…and then some. On the way, they discover that even if flesh eating zombies are knocking down their door, there’s always time for sex and even love.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.
