Lick The Spoon: Nutella French Rolls with Cinnamon Sugar It's been a little quiet around here. I'm always suspicious of silence.

Sweet Potato Soup — Delishhh Monday, October 18, 2010 If you recently started reading my blog you might think that I just post soup recipes. That is not true.

Once in a while I end up with a bunch of vegetables in my refrigerator that I have not used and they might go bad so I take them all out put them on the counter and wonder what I can make with them, 99% of the time I make stock. 50 Things Successful People Have in Common Rating: 8.7/10 (25 votes cast) Self-help books are an amazing channel for finding nuggets of “betterment” for personal development. HOWEVER, the truth is that 90% of ANY self-help book is pretty much worthless. The author has a brilliant concept that is then repeated 2000 times too many until you hit the last chapter and the train ride’s over.

Death By Oreo Cupcakes They are probably the best Oreo cakes I have ever tried. A lot of cake's that I have experimented with before are like a vanilla cake with bits of Oreo in them, which didn't really give them enough Oreo flavor. But these were a lot better. I used a dark chocolate fudge cake mix instead of just a regular chocolate cake mix, which went really well with the cookies and gave the cakes just a little more flavor.

Working Your Network: 5 Ways Networking Can Boost Business Rating: 9.8/10 (9 votes cast) A brilliant CEO said a perplexing thing to me once: “Deals are done on the golf course or at the bar.” Being a fairly new professional, working hard to create my meticulously “buttoned-up” persona to get ahead in the corporate world, I found this statement immensely confusing.
