I am a 20 year old girl... I think.
I'm a cook, baker, giver and taker,
Writer, reader, troublemaker.

My original posts usually consist of recipes, poems, quotes, song parodies, short stories, or cute animal pictures.

My reblogs are usually just me spamming posts about my favorite fandoms.

Whenever I feel unconfident in my baking abilities, I try to remember that one time when I made 200+ cupcakes for my sister’s wedding.

To make your Funfetti from scratch like I did, make white cake batter and fold in rainbow sprinkles just before baking. Use 1/2 cup for each batch of 24 cupcakes, then frost and garnish with even MORE sprinkles. I multiplied the recipe by 9, so I used 4 1/2 cups of sprinkles. %D

Will They Melt? Testing Walmart Ice Cream Sandwiches

"Walmart told the station that ice cream with more cream will generally melt at a slower rate— and they say that’s the case with their product."

Uh, no, that’s definitely not it. I’ve made enough homemade ice cream to tell you that’s a load of codswallop. It’s all the guar gum they pack into them to make them hold up better in manufacturing and shipping… and eating. Still, I’d rather have a messy natural ice cream sandwich than a pristine over-processed one.

I mean, guar gum isn’t exactly bad for you, but it doesn’t exactly belong in your ice cream, either… And I’m not sure whether it is the guar gum that does it, but let’s face it, Walmart ice cream tastes funny. I’ve noticed that it has a bizarre, plasticy, greasy texture even when (not) melting in your mouth.

His preference was rather for illumination than for conflagration. A conflagration can create an aura, no doubt, but why not await the dawn? A volcano illuminates, but daybreak furnishes a still better illumination. Possibly, Combeferre preferred the whiteness of the beautiful to the blaze of the sublime. A light troubled by smoke, progress purchased at the expense of violence, only half satisfied this tender and serious spirit.

My Perfect Coffee

My sister just got a new espresso maker, so I’ve been having a little fun with it. ;3  This is the combination I’ve decided is my favorite.

2 shots (1/4 cup) espresso

2 Tbsp. maple syrup

10 ice cubes

1 cup milk

1/2 tsp. cinnamon (opt.)

Combine all ingredients in a sealed bottle (I use a blender bottle) and shake until combined and frothy. Inhale that sweet coffee aroma and drink deeply.

That was the price of human civilization— to create it, they had to close the door on their true selves. And so they are lost.
