Meet Shaunda Wenger one of the “MAKE MINE AN ORANGEBERRY” Nine Women of Indie
Welcome to my 8th
victim guest and also part of Orangeberry’s Trick or Treat 2012. She really took a chance with me, but she is a great sport, and I adore this interview. November has really shaped up to having some extremely high quality interviews, and they are still coming. I have three great reviews coming this week too.
This weekend many will be partaking in Easter feasts, celebrations and rituals. I am not Christian and I honor the paths of the Old Ones, however like many of you I also worship the great and mighty Goddess of Chocolate (say it with an accent people) Yesterday I posted about the needless buying of cute things for Easter. Instead of a squirming and fluffy rabbit, buy a chocolate one. I wholeheartedly support this! From the curls of my head to the curl of my toe each time I place a creamy smooth and sexy piece of chocolate past my lips and indulge in the safest sex possible… the eating of sin.. the eating of chocolate.
Almost twenty years ago at DragonFest I witnessed this incredible and festive ritual being done. I do it in some way each year. I used to be part of a clan so it was done during our Osetra celebration, but since moving up here I am a solo practitioner. So this is usually a quietly contemplated ritual involving reading this and muttering, calling the guardians and shoving some form of chocolate in my mouth.. this year it will involved a few large bags of Cadbury Mini-Eggs! *GRIN*
Materials required: On the altar are brown candles, a Tootsie Roll (the
great big one- as the athame;) a large glass with milk in it (the chalice;)
a small dish of Nestle’s Quick and a spoon; a small dish of chocolate
sprinkles; a plate of cupcakes and some Yoo-Hoo along with a goblet

Some days a bowl of slow cooked chili is just what the doctor orders…
…and the cat thinks she can eat!
I really screwed the pooch on this one. I keep promising everyone (YES you Justin Bogdanovitch! ) my chili recipe and my daughter Amanda had her 19th birthday back on January 25th and has been reminding me ever so sweetly that her favorite dish growing up
AND THE WINNER IS…
Before any of you go “HEY that is not G-rated” I want to give you some of the reasoning behind the choice, I feel I need to because I insisted after MOST of you sending in your naughty names. I realize by giving you such a sexy cookie to name it was going to be difficult, which is why I decided to make the contest a bit of a challenge by making the G rated aspects a precursor. (Psst, all you naughty name contributors? I did add all of them to the list so he could choose though. Let’s face it they were pretty dang funny, well SOME of them.) So though it may not be totally G rated, this is why he chose it a the winning name! I felt guilty so I kept talking it over with Geoff, but he listed many good reasons why his choice was what it was, after all I did give him the power in this little soiree.
”instantly funny and catchy“… “Literally, it is the name that Tollhouse could come up with and everyone would titter but they would get away with it“… “Great Alaskan cookie naming jokes that would make a great cookie title, but don’t apply to this particular cookie” …”Kriss, I believe I am the one that gets to CHOOSE the name, stop bugging me and get on with it!” (spoken by the man-beast himself)
OK EVERYONE! The time has come, yes it has.. to NAME THAT COOKIE! Why you ask? Well I created these puppies from scratch because:
