Julia's Afternoon Cake This cake came about around 8:30 a.m. this past Monday, a window of time in which many things seem to get done as it’s when Oliver goes down for his first nap. Sam had made a legendary fried rice with lots of mushrooms and fish sauce for dinner the night before, so I was snacking on leftovers with a cup of coffee and racing around the kitchen trying to finish measuring and whisking before Oliver woke. The goal was to bake something sweet (but not too sweet) to take with me to work the next day, and I knew of just the thing. In no time, the oven was preheating, I was on my second cup of coffee, licking the spoon, and patting myself on the back for pulling together homemade cake batter in under twenty minutes — all while silently deeming Sam the fried rice master of the universe. Or at least, our house.

E visto che sui fashion blog i post non-fashion vanno che è una meraviglia [ironia] mi sono detta ma perché non avventurarmi in qualcosa di davvero estremo? [ironia] Ed eccomi qui con un post... botanico.Visto che (sempre alle Isole Borromee) personalmente mi sono entusiasmata a osservare e fotografare il giardini botanici e quello all'Italiana.
Baked Egg Boat recipe Breakfast is my favorite meal. I like to drink iced coffee and watch the cream climb its way down the chunky ice cubes in a dazy before the caffeine hits. I like to order bacon with whatever I’m eating. I like eating potatoes with ketchup. I like eggs over easy, and fluffy scrambled eggs. Gingerbread Red Velvet Cake When the perfume of gingerbread floats through the air, and you catch a first glimpse of gingerbread men and houses, you know that holiday season is here for real. Gingerbread, in some form, has been a European holiday staple since medieval days, when using prized spices meant that it was a very special time of year. When you talk flavor-packed treats, gingerbread still rules — and once you add the power of cocoa and the bravura of a red cake with cream cheese frosting, you have holiday gold.

How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Using Science In the event of a zombie apocalypse it will probably help to have: a baseball bat, a gun, a chainsaw and a plethora of blunt objects.

It includes every malady, from ghouls’ slow motor skills to terrible amnesia.
