3 journals full of writings later and I was looking for a way to spark creativity in my practice. Why? Well, I was having a writer’s block. I need something to help challenge and spark ideas. I was in my local Barnes and Noble picking up books for a class when I found a little gem on the book self. It was Write the Poem by Piccadilly.
Testing Bao Buns from Little Fat Boy
I came across the Bao Buns recipe from the Little Fat Boy that was featured on King Arthur Baking Company’s page. I thought why not give it a try. I always think the homemade is better than the frozen. So here is how it went…..
Testing Madeleine Recipe from Dominique Ansel
I recently got a Masterclass subscription on a whim to see if the investment to learn from the experts was worth it. One of the first classes I tried was the Dominique Ansel’s Pastry Fundamentals class. He is a famous baker from NYC and France. He is known all over the world and is a true expert. Though, I was still skeptical to take his class. An expert may not be a good teacher since they maybe unable to convey his knowledge adequately.
Korean Street Eats: Snacks and Meals from Korea
A little gem in a strip tucked beside a busy road. A cute shop that sells bites from Korea. They have foods that are authentic and tasty. It is called Korean Street Eats. The menu is full of iconic sandwiches, rice bowls like kimchi fried rice, kimbap, fried street bites, and so much more.
Mini Cranberry Cheesecake Testing: The Endless Meal
The holidays may be over, but my freezer is still stuffed with holiday ingredients. I especially have a ton of cranberries. It still feels like winter outside so why not create winter/holiday treats. I browsed the internet for a sweet bite that used the ingredients I have. I came across a fun recipe for Cranberry and White Chocolate Mini-Cheesecakes by The Endless Meal.
Kurobuta: Bite from Korea
I love supporting local businesses as they help the economy. I recently came across this cute restaurant in my area owned by a local family that served up amazing ramen and comfort Asian food. This treasure was called Kurobuta and located in Carrollton, Texas. You can tell that you have arrived at the restaurant by the Japanese style awning if you have never been here before.
The Language of Tarot: Guide to Reading the Cards

Taskmaster: British Celebrity Game Show
Laughter makes your day better. However, the it seems like there is no new funny programs on Tv. So, I went out to find a new show that was funny to watch. I searched the web and came across a little gem.
Le Bon Temps: New Orleans Treat in Dallas
New Orleans has some of the best food in the country, but not all treats can be remade outside the city. They are only good in NOLA. (It must be something in the water.) As mother’s side of the family is Cajun, I can attest to this as I grew up on it. One of the treats has recently been taken off the only can find good ones in New Orleans list. Which treat? It is Beignets.
Flavorful Origins: Exploring Cuisine From Your Couch
With travel on pause across the world, I have decided to try to explore the world via my comfy couch. I decided to watch different documentary series. Recently, it has been all about the food in the documentaries I have been watching. I love unique foods that come into our lives through various means. It is fun to question how did we start eating that weird shaped fruit, and who figured out how to grow it. I really got into Flavorful Origins on Netflix.
