I would highly recommend purchasing the album For Madeline by Seinabo Sey. Her EP is $4.74 on iTunes, and seriously, money well spent! Each song has a great vibe, and Its very easy listening. The perfect car music. Check her out!!

Quail eggs?

Yesterday I was making one of my favourite comfort food meals – baked breaded eggplant topped with a thick tomato sauce. Basically, its an eggplant Parmesan without the cheese (lactose life). I usually add meat to the tomato sauce to add a little extra substance to the meal, but unfortunately I forgot to grab some at the grocery store. It still tasted amazing vegetarian, I just find that its a little more filling with meat. I like to play around with protein, meat, beans, eggs, I eat just about everything. I thought something that would look very pretty and taste delicious would be to add a fried quail egg on top of the eggplant rounds. It is the perfect size for the eggplant, and I already love the combination of eggs and tomato sauces. I will need to get some quail eggs the next time I shop to test out this theory! Just imagine a nice stack of baked eggplant, a thick rich tomato sauce and then a perfectly fried mini egg on top. Wouldn’t that be perfect? I’m definitely testing out this theory.

Dear winter, can you relax?

I really don’t appreciate the winter creeping up on me so quickly. I am making a silent protest by refusing to bust out my winter jacket. However, that leaves me freezing to death – Ive made my decision though! My winter jacket will not surface until December! Unless absolutely necessary. Until then, I will live in denial land pretending that it is still fall. But hey, at least I added some boots and a scarf. Im at least a little bit sane…

Cookie Monster

My best friend just celebrated her 25th birthday, and we splashed out on the most incredible cake for the occasion. I’m not the biggest cake fan, but put a plate of soft cookies out and they will be gone. The cake we bought was layers of two types of thin soft cookies and buttercream icing. One cookie was cookies and cream, and the other was a standard chocolate chip. They used hot pink frosting to add a beautiful contrast, and it tasted as good as it looked! Seriously, I almost went into a sugar coma, totally worth it. If you’re looking for something different and delicious to serve at a party, cookie layer cakes are the way to go!

Porn staches

It’s that wonderful time of year, where men grow out some seriously questionable mustaches, all in the name of prostate cancer research. While I’m not a fan of the look, I’m a big advocate of the cause. For the ladies, I wouldn’t advise rocking a stache, but there are lots of ways to get involved! For instance, support, donations, and non mustache fundraising. My friend from work made some delicious sugar cookie mustaches, she got donations and is helping the cause in her own way ๐Ÿ™‚ So get out there in the sea of porno staches and embrace a good cause ๐Ÿ˜‰ย image

Makeup magic

Despite my limited artistic abilities, I have to admit that my skeleton face painting came outย pretty decent! My friend and I got lots of compliments at the party we went to, and i feel like I spent 15 dollars very wisely! Now I’ll just have to work at topping this costume next year ๐Ÿ˜‰ย image
