Best Nerdy Cakes Ever

I’m not gonna lie, I’m more of a pie girl than a cake girl…Mmmmmm…rhubarb….but one thing that cake has going for it that pie doesn’t is it’s artistic possibilities.  Seriously, you can do ANYTHING with cake.  As a Food Network afficianado I know this for a fact.

Cooking with Hot Nerd Girl: Klingon Blood Wine

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 – the End of an Era

Yes, I cried. Quite a bit at one point. And while the scenes were touching and poignant and emotional and all that good stuff, a large part of it was a sense of mourning that this was it.  No more books and now, no more movies either.  The posters and billboards plastered everywhere are clear:… Continue reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 – the End of an Era
