Blogger of Interest: Renegade Writer Linda Formichelli | Be a Freelance Blogger. Ever read a book so awesome, you told all your friends to read it too?

It’s called Commit: How to Blast Through Problems & Reach Your Goals Through Massive Action [that affiliate link will take you to Amazon]. This book is fantastic. And yes, full disclosure, it’s written by one of my online friends — Linda Formichelli from the freelance writing blog The Renegade Writer. So after reading the first couple of chapters, I emailed Linda and essentially said, “You rock! We decided to get together for a chat so I could tap into the author’s brain via the astonishing powers of the internet.

We believe it as a sign of weakness and can even come to regret ever taking that leap of faith. Well, contrary to this belief, a number of highly successful achievers often credit a failure or two, to their success. Read on as we break down the fundamental reasons why failure should be important to you.

Welcoming Failure “Eventually, we all must come to a decision, for ourselves, about what represents failure; however, the world is very keen to put failure on a schedule, and give you a set of decisive factors, if you allow it. The premise of using J.K. Failure is a type of freedom. The Importance of Failure Okay, it’s clear; we all will face failures in life. When we resist failure, it attaches itself to us. The Business of Failure The United States, SBA, Small Business Administration, states that more than half of small businesses fail during the initial five years in service. Unfortunately, failure in entrepreneurial activity is frowned upon. Plan B. Nancy Baggett's Kitchenlane: Best Fudgy-Wudgy Browies, Plus Bittersweet Memories on Memorial Day. I'm baking these fudgiest-ever brownies for Memorial Day. Partly, it's because everybody loves them, and they are perfect for an informal family gathering.

But it's also partly because because they are an all-American dessert, and they just seem fitting for this holiday of patriotic remembrance and pride. The recipe here is adapted to make a larger batch from one in my popular All-American Cookie Cookbook, which has lots of other tidbits of American culinary history and lore throughout. Though many of our popular sweet treats, like pies, puddings and cakes, actually originated in Europe, brownies are a wholly American invention. The first known recipe for these sumptuous chocolatey bars appeared in the 1906 edition of the classic Boston Cooking-School Cookbook, by Fannie Merritt Farmer.

Unfortunately, cookbooks didn't contain recipe introductions in her era, so we have no idea whether Mrs. Farmer collected the recipe from someone in her school or created it herself. 1/2 teaspoon salt. Nutella Pain Brioche braid – SugarLoveSpices. Happy Women’s Day! This morning I wanted to celebrate with this delicious, energetic breakfast. One that will give my day a kick from the start and will leave me with a smile and a good mood all day long (so that I can forget for a day all the wrongs that women still have to face in many parts of the world). Yes, that’s what Nutella does to me…and a beautiful sunny spring day :-). Anyway, here the Nutella is just part of a bigger wonderful picture that includes a marvellous, soft, pain brioche. Can you smell french “patisserie” here? I do. It is not the quickest sweet to make, it has to rise twice, for a total of good 3 hours, but I can assure you it is worth every minute you spend making it.

Making the dough is not hard at all. There… and the first step is done. During the rising time you can relax and think of how nice it is to make your own pain brioche and how many ways you can enjoy it. While it’s in the oven, the smell in the whole house is incredible, it will make your head spin…. Triple chocolate brownie cookies - in this kitchen. When I found this recipe, the picture is what caught my attention. A crackly, slightly crisp outside of a chocolate cookie, with a super soft, darker brownie-like inside. It looked so good that I immediately had to add it to my to-make list. I got to make it this past week, and it really delivered what it promised: a cookie-brownie hybrid that is super soft and tender, and very chocolatey.

They were originally deemed “brookies” (as a brownie cookie hybrid), but I looked up brookies and that seems to be more commonly associated with a cookie dough/brownie dough hybrid (hello, new addition to my to-make list). So I think it’s safe to call these guys brownie cookies – a brownie, in cookie shape. The original recipe calls for white chocolate chips, which I think would be delicious, but I instead chose to substitute toasted walnuts for them.

I absolutely love walnuts in brownies, so for me it was even better this way. Foodgawker | feed your eyes. » May 2015 Index. Goat Cheese Toasts with Balsamic and Roasted Tomatoes. It seems like every type of food is having a little moment to shine in the spotlight. Toast – it’s a thing. Or is it? Is Toast’s moment in the sun almost over? Are things like tater tots and cruffins taking over the spotlight? Regardless of its popularity (or lack thereof), Toast will always have a place in my heart. Even unadorned, Toast is delicious: the edges get crunchy and slightly caramelized, the golden brown outsides give way to soft and piping hot insides. Are you a toast lover or a hater?

United Kingdom Other Assignment close date: Why I’ve left Teaching | my life. my love. I’ll be totally honest and say that I never thought this day would come. I have been in a job that I have loved for 15 years. Teaching is all I ever thought I would do.

All I have ever done. All I have ever wanted to do. I am sat here, surrounded by the 4 brightly coloured walls, full of colourful displays that I hope I’m remembered for, saddened by the deafening silence of the classroom now that all of my class have disappeared off on their Easter Holidays. This very room has been my second home for so long. For the hour when I am in the classroom, with the class, teaching, I love it. But sadly, that’s not the job any more. The powers that be, the political masterminds who believe they know how children should be taught, have changed the job, beyond measure. The Government’s frequent, rapid changes to both the curriculum and expectations are too dramatic to not warrant consultation. And that saddens me. BBC news have been covering this very story.

Blogging, so much a part of daily lives today, actually took a while to catch on before becoming enormously successful – practically overnight.

Blogging began to rapidly spread in 1999 and shortly thereafter thanks to a few nearly-simultaneous creations of blog tools: Open Diary (1998), LiveJournal (1999), (1999), and (1999). In 1997, John Bargerm, editor of Robot Wisdom, coined the term “web-log” while attempting to describe the daily list of sites that he “logged” onto during his web travels. A few years later Peter Merholz used the word in his sidebar but made the creative decision to split the word into two: we blog. It wasn’t long after that, that Evan Williams at Pyra Labs began using the word “blog” on its own as both a verb and a noun, before finally creating the term “blogging” in association with Pyra Labs’ Blogger product. Today, blogging is more than a familiar term. Many people have chosen to make blogging their lifestyle, and their livelihood. 10. 9.
