It’s a Cabin Goddess #MamasKitchenMonday post with a side of ribs for #MondayBlogs

Posted by on May 2, 2016 in Cabin Cooking, Featured Posts, Mama's Kitchen Mondays, Pork | 2 comments

BOO! Guess who is going to be making an active effort to be back. I am available for graphics work again, I am going to be loading your virtual taste buds and feeding you foodies with tantalizing recipes again, and discussing books! I have had a hell of a year, which is coming up in another blog post, and I am now no longer living in the cabin anymore. I will always be the cabin goddess, as someone I hold dear told me, “You can take the girl out of the cabin, but you cannot take the cabin out of the girl.” After 11 years of living in a dry cabin, lost in the woods of Alaska, I finally took a huge leap. I left 98% of everything I own, including every book I own, unless it was on my kindle, and stumbled into the arms of pretty tolerant individual. Though I am realizing I really didn’t need all of those teefury t-shirts, probably should have grabbed more skirts and really should have insisted my former partner help me dig my cute shoes out, but I made it!

What’s in your Snack Pile? – Bacon Popcorn

Posted by on Jul 14, 2012 in Authors, Bacon, Cabin Cooking, Guest Posts, Pork | 2 comments

B is for Bacon: Bacon Popcorn (reblogged from Daily Dish Recipes)

Totally re-blogged from Nicole Cook, who I consider to be my favorite Maven of the Alphabet this time around, despite the fact my ass grew at least a size during the A to Z challenge! So I saved this post from Day 2 of the A-Z Challenge this past April. The letter is  B. And what better food than bacon! )

This weekend The Indie Exchange is hosting #SundayShorts with Harlow Drake’s book Life in Death and we are having a read-a-thon. All of us are stocking up on snacks in preparation and since we are having a Twitter Chat over at (check out the rules and all the particulars HERE) we want to have to have to stay stuck to our reader and computer! I am making a big ol’ pile of this tonight to be prepared and bagging it in paper bags. I have a gallon of sweet tea, some iced coffee and Geoff also brought me home Sea Salt and Vinegar Kettle Chips and a big ol’ thing of Cottage cheese!

Making Bacon with Stephen Zimmer

Posted by on Jul 3, 2012 in Bacon, Books, Guest Posts, Humor, Pork, Seventh Star Press | 6 comments

I want to say a special thank you to Stephen Zimmer and Seventh Star Press for letting me host during this EPIC virtual book tour for the release the third book in the Fire of Eden series,  Spirit of Fire. Also for attempting to talk about epic fantasy writing. Yes I say attempt for apparently there should be a disclaimer when dealing directly with me for to long.. something perhaps like:


Exclusive Artwork by Matthew Perry

*shaking head* Seriously, am I really that scary? Perhaps occasionally I stand on the hill in my snowbound fortress, gazing at the roaming hordes of carefully maintained stripper zombies as they keep the perimeter clear of the militants from up on the ridge and eating the mutant squirrels before they get to the rafters to eat all our insulation. The breeze rippling through my homespun sun bleached woolen robe, embroidered with thread made by the Inuit’s in tribute with the shed fur from their prize sled dogs. Thread which is woven through with gold, edging my robs in a unique Athabaskan pattern…What can I say, the Unifier had awesome taste in outfits!  Maybe I can be a bit scary,  I will direct the mice to prepare BiPolar Pumpkin to deliver to you a few cases of our prized Bush Town flavor Monster Energy Drink as a tribute from my lands!

‘Zombie Candy’ by Frederick Lee Brooke – Zombie Candy Pizza by Me (review & a recipe)

Posted by on Jun 14, 2012 in Authors, Bacon, Books, Cabin Cooking, Giveaways & Contests, Novel Publicity, Pork, Review & a Recipe, Reviews, Zombies | 10 comments


In conjunction with Novel Publicity and it’s Whirl-Wind Tour, I am reviewing ‘Zombie Candy’, An Annie Ogden Mystery. Honoring the flavor of the book, and the cilantro free-zone for the author, Fredrick Lee Brooke, I created a pizza I am naming Zombie Candy Pizza.. don’t worry no brains OR Cilantro were made during the creation of this dish!

I know what you are thinking, of course I am reviewing this book, it has Zombie’s in the title, well before we go on, I want to make something clear, this is not a zombie book in the sense of what many of my blog readers expect. Yet, as I sit here and type that this is not a post apocalyptic tale of survival, I realize this is a story of survival just not one after a zombie apocalypse. Then I start typing, this is not a tale about the crazed undead running around obsessed with eating brains and I realize, wait, it is about obsession. In Zombie Candy there is a lot of focused and mindless obsession sprinkled throughout the novel. But I will repeat, though this book is not about Zombies it includes the obsession of zombies in today’s pop-culture as a plot device.
