Giant Paella!

I love it when my world's collide.  You see, I  am a crafty and I love food.   How perfect is it when watching (and envying) preparations for Maker's Faire, that there is a food tie in?!  I'm not a big fan of Paella, but how exciting is would it be to cook in this huge pot!

Outdoor Cinema

I love living in L.A. in the summer.  Where else can you watch a movie outdoors AND sample food from a variety of Food Trucks?  The Outdoor Cinema FoodFest, that's where!.  You have to buy your tickets before you go, so don't wait until the last minute. I 'll report to after I go on Aug. 7th.

Stay hungry my friend!


There is nothing more that I love than Nutella, ok, maybe a few other things, but Nutella ranks right up there!  If you live under a rock and have no idea what it is, let me tell you: Nutella® (pronounced "new-tell-uh") is a tasty unique spread made from the combination of roasted hazelnuts, skim milk and a hint of cocoa.

I could eat it right out of the jar and have!  It is just  chocolatey, creamy goodness, and now I find a recipe to make an entire cheesecake from it.  I think I've just died and gone to chocolate heaven.

Now if you're intrigued to go out and buy some, I suggest visiting a local Trader Joe's, because it is less expensive than at your local grocery store.   Then, when you've fallen in love with it as much as I have, go to the Nutella site for a chance to WIN A CASE of it!  and when you win, promise you'll send me a jar.

Stay hungry my friend!

Saturday Prompt

Hello old friend, I have missed you! I know you don't believe me, I've said it before, but I have truly missed you and to you dear friend I will tell you the truth. Fear has taken over me. Dreams and thoughts of childhood are burried deep inside my head, hidden behind a dark cloud that has enveloped me for quite some time. It has sucked the nerve right out of me. I need to blame something because it couldn't surely be my fault. Something else outside of me has got to be the cause, because why would anyone do this to themselves on purpose. Cut themselves off from the rest of the world, their true wants and dreams, why? I turn to my other old friend for solice. He lets me watch whatever I want and sits with me as we watch the same old movies time and time again or the pointless reality shows that seem to be on ever channel. He lets me cry as we sit on the couch, munching on whatever junkfood there is, never asking a question because he knows she knows the answer. We sit in silence, each knowing and sensing the fear, but he never nudges, never speaks.
I watch the stories of dreams play out before me, sensing the cloud hovering, why can't I find my umbrella to shield me from the coming rain. I just prefer to stand waiting for the rain. Will it wash all the pain away? Or will it follow me where ever I go, constantly dousing me in a shower of unhappiness?
