I have a few drinks in mind (from recipe book) that remind me of Ms. Pam-Pamela Swynford De Beaufort! She is one of my absolute, hands-down favorite characters. Her very existence makes the True Blood world sexy, cool and hilarious. Those one-liners kill me!
I need to take some notes from this great page for my next shoot/vid: Dress Like Pam-de-Beaufort Kristin Bauer van Straten rocks! She turned Pam into her own creation and changed the course of geekdom! I may be getting a little dramatic but hey...it's Pam. Definitely my woman crush!
Here are a few of my fav pics and/or quotes:
OMG...there are just so many gems to pick from! lol I also love this one...hits home a bit ha ha!
It is going to be hard to say goodbye to the show...maybe her and Eric can have a spin off!? Cheers, Bunny
This weekend I will be making one...maybe two...new drinks and a dish.
I can't decide on what delicious meal to make but I do know that I will be dressing in a very fairy-licious dress! Now I need to find some glitter and a stripper pole LOL! Thank you faye night club for the inspiration.
Howdy! Okay I made a real delicious treat this time. Out of the Maenad Feast section by Maryann, there is a great recipe for Ginger-Raspberry Muffins. First start off by setting the oven to 400 and line 12 muffin tins with papers.
I apologize the next video featuring me pouring each mixture (exciting stuff he he!) and cutting up the raspberries and candied ginger was lost. Boo! For this part you will be making two bowls then mixing them together.
First bowl: flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Second bowl: buttermilk, vegetable oil, vanilla and egg. After, you want to add in the fresh raspberries and candied ginger. I am not a huge fan of ginger but chopped up and baked the flavor is subtle. Also adding in fresh raspberries really makes this muffin pop!
They were such a nice treat to have, and I say 'have' because I believe Craig has finished them off! Fluffy, warm and each flavor can be tasted without being over powering. I would definitely recommend! Nom nom nom!
So each week I usually make some cookies for Craig...out of a Betty Crocker bag...a bit of a cheat but they are yummy! Today it was oatmeal chocolate chip, one of my favs! They are quite simple, just an egg and a stick of butter. Mix well and divide up onto a cookie sheet. I like to add in walnuts, dark chocolate chips and M&Ms.
Hey y'all, This recipe kind of scared me at first...I have never cooked anything with so many ingredients but I was up for the challenge. First I started off by finishing my Dead on the Beach then began chopping up all the onions, pepper, celery, garlic and meats. I figured it would be easier to have everything I needed ready to go. Once the oil was nice and hot I added the pork, ham and sausage. You also add bacon fat (later on) and I found it funny that all these came from the same animal...but looked so different.
After the meat is cooked, drain the oil, then add fat, onion, bell pepper, celery and garlic.
Cook until soft, 8 to 10 minuets, then add broth, green onion, rice, tomatoes, parsley and bay leaves.
This jambalaya turned out GREAT! Really flavorful and hardy, perfect for a big family dinner. Delicious!
And of course here is me chasing Jack down to introduce him. He spent the entire cooking experience underfoot and then the moment I try to grab him he runs away LOL!
Getting ready for a fun Saturday and True Blood Sunday making some cocktails! Here is the Dead on the Beach by Longshadow This is a really yummy drink that is quick and simple to make. The orange juice really adds a refreshing quality as well.
Happy 4th of July weekend everyone! How about some fresh lemonade? I started off with the simple lemonade recipe for Gran's Lemonade, involving sugar, warm water and lemon juice. It does call for a lot of sugar...I would suggest adding some (1 cup) and then more later on if needed. On the next page there is the option to turn this lemonade into a Killer Lemonade via adding pureed strawberries and raspberries. This took it to a...whole...notha....level! Delicious and perfect for summer!
Now Jason is one fine piece, so to honor his sweet ass I am making a Sloppy Jason! This was pretty simple once I got all the ingredients. Make sure to brown the beef and then drain all fat/oils. Then add the garlic and onions. After a few mins add the other ingredients: tomato paste, tomato sauce, red wine vinegar and brown sugar. Stir and cook until well mixed then time to serve!
They turned out great, much fancier than any Sloppy Joe I have made in the past. Craig ate the first one so fast...make sure to let it cool off a bit! LOL
Here I added in the Corn Bread of Life by Lafayette! Delicious!
"You put some love in your food, folk gonna taste it."
Alright Truebies and food lovers! Just made a very delicious drink and Sloppy Jason from the TrueBlood Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps. The Necromancer by Marnie Stonebrook...by far the yummiest drink around. Glad I picked it!
One of my favorite shows, True Blood will be ending soon and what better way to celebrate and immortalize this wonderful campy lust filled vamp fest...than to go through their drink and recipe books, courtesy of True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps AND True Blood Drinks and Bites -Gianna Sobol Stay Tuned Trubies!
