Hallmark Funniest Pet Cards That Will Make You Laugh

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.

To anyone who saw me in Walmart laughing hysterically please don’t be alarmed, I was in the greeting card section and I was losing it over some cards.  Not just any cards, but specifically Hallmark Funniest Pets Cards.  Oh goodness, I laughed so much.  I giggled, I smiled and I pointed to cards as people walked by.    No, I wasn’t crazy, these cards were just too cute!    When I went to check out at the cash register, the woman said “You sure love pets, don’t you?” when she saw my stack of cards.  “Oh yes” I responded.   Then because she couldn’t resist, herself being a pet lover too, she opened every single card, looked at the picture and read inside.  And then continued to laugh wildly too.  Which then caused me to laugh more.  We’re now best friends.

I was able to stop laughing for this picture, there’s happy tears in my eyes though.  Check out those great gift bags down below too!

Then I rounded the corner and saw a second display!  More #FunnyPetCards!

Let’s check out some of the cards I got.  Come laugh with me.

There is something about dogs sitting up that always makes me laugh hysterically.  Especially dogs that look like they are driving cars, I lose it at the first sight of that.  This dog brings me such happiness.

As soon as I saw this card I knew I had to have it.

And this card here… I often have this conversation with friends who’s pet follows them into the bathroom and waits for them after showering.  My FiFi Bofinkles waits for me every single night when I’m in the shower.  When I step out this is always what I see.  “Hey Mom”.

My worry is that she is thinking this!

And don’t you love Orson who will put up with anything?  Putting things on pets is always a fun activity.  Hallmark Funny Pet Cards

On the back of each card there is a little blurb about the pet from the owner.    As you can see here Orson is a very patient pup!Hallmark Funny Pet Cards_1

Chocolate Cake In a Mug

I made this Chocolate Cake In a Mug for Lunch yesterday.   I know, the things I do for you guys.

Chocolat-Cake-In-a-Mug

 

I have been craving chocolate cake the last few days.  If you follow me on Pinterest you might have seen chocolate cake recipes being pinned at hungry speeds, sorry about that, I had chocolate hearts in my eyes.
Follow Brooklyn Farm Girl

When I received the Irish Country Cooking cookbook I basically decided I wanted to cook every recipe in the book.  From Soups, Starters, Main Dishes, Vegetable Side Dishes, Dips, Cakes, Tarts, Pudding and more, every single recipe seems like it was made with such care and embrace.  Have you ever gone to a friends house to enjoy dinner and you can just taste how much energy, effort and pure love it’s made with?  This is how I feel about every single recipe in this cookbook.  I just want to hug every member of the Irish Countrywomen’s Association from passing on these recipes to me as they passed on through families from generation to generation.  I love this cookbook also because of all the romantic pictures shown throughout all the dishes, everything looks rich but at the same time like a real home cooked meal.  They also include tips in the book on how to cook for a crowd, how to cook on a budget and how to cook potatoes (of course!).  If you want to check out the cookbook, you can find out more details here.

(Already picked a bunch of recipes to make!)

One of the recipes I needed to make immediately was the Chocolate Cake In a Mug.  You know how much I love mug recipes so I needed to give this a shot and I’m so happy I did.  Even though this is made in a few quick minutes in the microwave, it still is so chocolaty and rich.  It definitely tastes like warm chocolate cake that will treat your sweet tooth.   I also love this recipe because it’s individual servings. If you’re in the mood for chocolate cake but don’t want to feel the guilt of eating a entire cake (real talk) then this will totally do the trick.   I totally think this would be adorable for serving multiple friends their own mugs, or even making one mug with 2 forks to share with a friend.

Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup

Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup recipe – tastes just like Campbell’s!

How many times have you tried to make a recipe and it calls for Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup so you go into your cabinet and realize you have zero cans?  Don’t let this happen to you anymore!

This scenario has happened to me so many times in life.  Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup is something I use often in soups and casseroles but somehow I always manage to forget to buy a can.  If you have some mushrooms on hand, then I bet you have the rest of the ingredients as well to make your own!

I have to say as well that not only is this easy to make (we’re talking 10 minutes) but it tastes a million times better then the canned version.  There’s something about the fresh mushrooms in this that makes me weak in the knees, but if you don’t have fresh on hand feel free to used canned mushrooms instead. Also I made this with regular milk and unsweetened vanilla almond milk for a vegan recipe and both turned out great!

Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Muffins

Pumpkin Spiced Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe. Easy to make and bakes in 20 minutes.   Makes 1 dozen muffins.  

I’m on a muffin kick right now.  My favorite muffins of the moment are the Fluffy Chocolate Chip and these Pumpkin ones.  I swear they can’t last in my kitchen with me around.   These muffins here make for a happy breakfast.  They have cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg in them combined with chocolate chips so they’re bursting with flavor and some sweetness.

I still have some pumpkin puree left in the freezer from the Fall garden pumpkins.  As some of you know I’m kinda in love with our pumpkins and am known to a “pumpkin dance” whenever I spot the first pumpkin of the season.   

And because you asked me nicely… here’s my pumpkin dance.

Now go enjoy these muffins!

Saturday Night Fever 22: A Recipe Link Party!

Happy Saturday Night Fever Link Party everyone! 

Today was a sunny day in NYC with temperatures in the 50’s.  To me this is perfect weather, not too cold and not too hot, I love the in between where you can get by with a sweatshirt on.  Because of the increase in temperatures it seems like much of our snow is melting as well besides some piles that are going to take a few more weeks.   I’d love to say the weather was going to stay like this, but it’s back in the 20’s later this week with a few light snow showers.  

Because of the nice day were able to enjoy a sunny walk this afternoon, followed by a little garden peeking at the greenhouses.

I Hate My Bathroom

I’m going to repeat the title, I hate my bathroom. 

If you’re a friend you might have received a text or Facebook message from me in the past few days exclaiming my bathroom hatred.  If you follow me on Pinterest you might have seen my inspiration photos coming in at fast speeds.  If you follow me on Twitter you might have read a few bathroom requests for hope and help.  If you’re my husband you have received about 88 texts from me saying we need a new cabinet, a shower door, a new floor and really tell me the truth, do you feel ok with white towels?

 In this post I’m going to tell you all about the things I don’t like our bathroom.  I’m going to tell you what I want in our bathroom. I’m going to post unrealistic photos but still dream about them.  I hope you can give me some guidance, tips or just a nod that says “You are going to be ok”.

We have lived in our apartment for 9 years now.  Honestly not a whole lot has changed in those 9 years.  A new shower curtain, a new bath mat, towels, a toilet seat cover, but nothing dramatic.  No big furniture pieces, no changing of the floor, I didn’t even paint the walls.  And it’s been 9 years. I need a change. 

Here are the problems with our bathroom that causes my heart to break at every glance into that unavoidable room.

-There is no bath tub. I have lived without a bath tub for 9 years.  Can I get some type of spa reward for this?  Honestly, this just sucks.  I’m a girl. I like to just spend ridiculous amounts of time in hot water reading, listening to music, drinking ginger ale with a straw and just doing nothing.   Whenever we go on trips I never get to experience those new cities because I’m too busy spending all my free time using the hotels bath tubs.   When we stayed at the Soho House in Berlin this was our bath tub.  Do you really think I was going to do anything but close my eyes and lay in there? I mean it came with it’s own Rubber Ducky and a cup of tea.  

-I hate the floor.  It’s black and white checkered title (it looks like this).  You might think it’s charming at first but try living with it for over 3,000 days and you won’t be able to take it anymore. It’s overwhelming and I hate to use this word, but I think it’s ugly.   Plus there’s this one tile that is starting to come loose that really bugs me and throws me off the deep end. 

-My bathroom has 2 doors and it drives me insane.  My apartment is a loft space that was converted out of a old factory (used to be a toy factory).  So what was one big factory is now individual apartment spaces.  I am unsure why each apartment has 2 doors but each one does.  There’s the actual front door and then a door that goes from the hallway into the bathroom (I’ve never seen anyone actually use this door to their apartment).  So that means that hypothetically I could install a lock and have 2 front doors, one for the main entrance and one right into the bathroom if you really have to go real bad and can’t take those 8 extra steps from front door to the bathroom.    What this means with the bathroom is there are 2 doors there: the bathroom door and this strange hallway door.  I need to find a way to block this visually as the door frame around it along with the knob just makes me shake my head and ask myself “Why?”

-There is no window in my bathroom.  Like many apartments the bathrooms are usually on the opposite side of your windows which means no natural light. This means my bathroom feels like a cave.  I asked Matthew to move the bathroom to the other side of the room but he acted like I didn’t say anything at all.  Do you think he was ignoring me?

 -Because it is the bathroom, I believe we all should do our business in here, furry cats included.  So the litter box is also in the bathroom.  It’s design has been changed multiple times due to helping a older cat, but now we can go back to something nicer.  What’s happening there now is a eyesore. Also FiFi Bofinkles is a stinky cat, just so you know.  How’s a adorable girl like her do that?  I’ll never know.

 -There isn’t much storage.  

-It’s boring.

Things I already am thinking of changing, or have:

-On Tuesday I woke up and rushed to Home Depot. I had one thing in mind, the bathroom needed color.  The bathroom has 5 walls but I didn’t want to paint them all so I painted 2 of them with Behr’s “Beachside Drive M460-2”.   Here’s the color featured with my hideous floor.

The walls that remained white will be touched up as they’re kinda not the prettiest right now after years of neglect.

-We have a small black cabinet under the sink now but it’s tiny and low to the ground.  I’m really against all dark colors right now so we are going to either build (Matthew prefers to custom build everything) or buy (I prefer to have things right away) a larger cabinet to house the sink with lots of storage underneath.  We really can’t have many (or any) shelves on the wall because we have a crazy Siamese cat so cabinets work best.  We are thinking it will be white or a softer color like a antique white or pale yellow.
I’m not sure if I want to go modern or more shabby chic cottage. I am leaning towards more weathered in this case but I am already feeling the glares coming from Matthew.

-I don’t want a medicine cabinet mirror anymore. I just want a mirror flat on the wall. Everything inside of the medicine cabinet now can go below in the cabinet drawers. Something simple but again I like slightly weathered.

-The whole bathtub is a dream.  Not saying we couldn’t get one installed, but it’s a investment in a home that we’ll never have the option to buy so I don’t know if its honestly worth it.  Will we stay here for another 2 years? 5 years? 10 years?  I don’t know if we’re ready to make a solid commitment (ok “we” is really “me”) so I was thinking if I can’t get a bath tub why can’t we at least make the shower feel a bit more like a spa with a nice glass door instead of a shower curtain.   I think frosted might be better because I’m a horrible shower cleaner and would like to hide my guilt when friends visit. 🙂
(PS.  I just bought that bamboo shower mat as well).

 -I want simple accessories such as mason jars, white towels and flowers.  Flowers in the bathroom are such a simple and calming touch, but I don’t think I ever had flowers in my bathroom.  With no windows I have to find a happy in between for flowers that won’t break the bank but I have some ideas already.  White towels have been ordered to replace my current mismatched ones, a Antique White double light cover is being shipped from Etsy, art work is being sorted to frame for the walls, hooks have been placed on the door and I have plenty of mason jars so this step is being worked on.  I also asked Matthew to build me a simple (light color) wood tissue box cover.

 

Inspiration:
These are some of my favorite inspiration images I have saved this week, the majority being not really possible with my space, but I think I can take elements from all of them.

I love the color of everything here.

I love the idea of having concrete counters.

I would never leave this tub.

If I had a window, I’d have plenty of greens growing.

I really love the blue and white contrast with the tiles here.   Since I already painted the walls blue I think a softer palette like this would brighten the space up.

 

So help me:
The bathroom size is 6 feet wide by 9 feet to put into perspective, with a shower wall already in place that separates the toilet from the shower.  I really want a bathroom that is calming and makes me feel happy to be in there.   

What should I do with the double door situation? How do I block the one door completely – do I put something in front of it and if so, what? 

What should I do with the floor tiles?  I need ideas for tile replacement that is economical as this is a rental apartment.  I think something light would be nice.

Can I borrow your bath tub? Just once a week? Please.

 

 

Homemade Vegetable Chicken Noodle Soup

Homemade Vegetable Chicken Noodle Soup recipe – just like how Mom used to make it!  The perfect bowl of comforting soup on a cold Winter day!

Guys, is this winter just crazy?  

Besides a few wild snowstorms over the past few years winter has been on the mild side.   Sure, we had a record setting snowfall a few times during those years, but that was it for the winter.  This year, it’s just winter, all the time.  We’re talking snow, ice, slush and cold all the time.    It seems to me that whenever I check the weather forecast there’s some type of snowy mix being talked about.  And can we talk about how much it stinks to have to walk in the snow?   Living in a city is great for so many reasons, one being that I can walk and get anywhere that I want to go, but that means walking through the snow and slush  and trying not to fall in the process.  It’s a nightmare.   On every single corner there will be a giant puddle of slush just waiting for you.  

 

The good thing through all this cold and snow is seeing all the creatures the kids (and adults) create on the sidewalks to cause some smiles.  This always cheers me up.
Homemade Vegetable Chicken Noodle Soup recipe - just like how Mom used to make it! The perfect bowl of comforting soup on a cold Winter day!

What else cheers me up?  Coming inside from a super cold day and warming up with a big bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup.  That totally cheers me up.

Homemade Vegetable Chicken Noodle Soup recipe - just like how Mom used to make it! The perfect bowl of comforting soup on a cold Winter day!

The secret I’ve found to some great Chicken Noodle Soup is always to use a whole chicken.   Not only is this going to provide the meat in your meal but it gives you that real rich chicken broth that no bouillon or boxed broth can give.   Pair this with some fresh vegetables and spices and you’ll have one big bowl of soup that will be sure to warm you up.

Quick French Toast In A Mug

 I’m here to tell you about one of my favorite new cookbooks.  Every single recipe in the book is made in a mug, from breakfast to dinner and everything in between.   Are you amazed yet?   

I’m kind of love with mug recipes for many ideas but really the 2 big ones are:
I love eating out of a mug.  It makes me feel cozy, especially in the winter time.
So far everything I’ve made from this cookbook basically just calls for you to prepare it in a mug, that means no dirtying a ton of dishes.   Only a mug to clean?  Yes!  Also many of these recipes are super flexible on location.  If you are having lunch at your office and they have a microwave, now you have a great lunch time alternative instead of shelling out $8 on a sandwich.

The recipe creator and author of the book Camilla V. Saulsbury does a great job at covering a variation of recipes, all quick to make.  In the beginning of the book she does a small introduction informing readers of the increase in popularity of meals in a mug (Fact: An October 2013 Google search of the phrase “mug recipes” yielded more than 40,900,000 hits) and talks about how mug cooking is a great econimical alternative to fast food as it’s almost instant satisfcation.     So next time you are craving quick food, say no to fast food, and make yourself something that will be lower in calories and high fat content – right in your kitchen, in a mug!

FinalCoverMealsinaMug

Flipping through this cookbook, I bookmarked quite a few pages.  Here are some of my favorites:
Tex Mex Migas Mug
Pepperoni Pizza Dip
Bacon and Corn Chowder
Sessae Soy Edamame
Blackberry Crumble

Honestly, I can go on and name a ton more, but my first I needed to make was French Toast In A Mug!
If you’re anything like me you  love French Toast.   It’s one of my favorite breakfast foods.  If I go to a diner, no matter what time of the day it is, I will probably order French Toast (with a side of turkey bacon too!).   One thing I don’t love about French Toast is that if I want it on a lazy morning, well, it’s not happening.  No, French Toast is not hard to make, but it’s not something you can just throw in the microwave while you get your first cup of tea brewing.   Now French Toast in 2 minutes is possible!

Quick-French-Toast-In-A-Mug_4

FrenchToastMealsMug

 This recipe calls for you to gather all your ingredients right there in the mug.   If you want to make it even quicker, you can prepare it the night before, which means in the morning you just pull it out of the fridge and it goes straight into tho microwave.

I also wanted to test this recipe to see how it would hold up outside of the mug – would it fall apart or would it hold it’s mug shape?   This is important if say you only have 1 mug and want to make 4 servings for your family, or if you want to put everything on plates for presentation purposes.   Guess what – it held it’s shape perfectly.

  2. 1 tbsp granulated sugar
  3. 1/8 tsp salt
  4. 1/8 tsp ground cinnamon

Prep Ahead Option
  1. Whisk the sugar, salt, cinnamon, egg, milk and vanilla in the mug, then add the bread cubes; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

Fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins

Fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins recipe.   The muffins are light, moist and full of chocolate bites! 

Oh hello beautiful chocolate chip muffins, come give me a hug.

I’m on a muffin kick right now, it bounces back from donuts and cookies to muffins.  I know, I live a dangerous life.  Nothing says wild like throwing on  your pajamas on a Friday night at 7PM and deciding to make up multiple batches of different flavored muffins.  I live life on the wild side.  The next few weeks you might see a overabundance of sweets here on Brooklyn Farm Girl, but I don’t think that should cause anyone to complain, right? 🙂

 These muffins make me kinda crazy happy.  They’re light, they’re moist and they are full of chocolate bites.  When you rip one open (with your fingers or mouth, no judging here) the chocolate will be soft and just melt on your tongue, causing you to swoon and muter “oh, these muffins”.   I love a breakfast that is there for me ready in the morning, so these muffins win all types of rewards for being the perfect breakfast treat.  They also win love for a afternoon pick me up, a post dinner dessert, or just being there to greet me whenever I want to say “hello beautiful”.

Try these Fluffy Chocolate Chip Muffins, I think you’ll like them too!

Saturday Night Fever 21: A Recipe Link Party!

Happy Saturday night everyone! I feel like every week I have to discuss the snowy weather happening outside my window because every week it’s a brand new storm!  Earlier this week we had a snow day that snowed us in and cancelled all plans, and then suddenly today I woke up and saw we’re getting a few more inches of unexpected snow.  As I write this right now I’m looking out the window and see snow coming down.  I’m so happy I finally bought some snow boots this winter, I can’t imagine the slush puddles and snowy hills without them!

Wherever you are, in the snow or in the sunshine, I hope you are having a great weekend!

Starting to Wear Lipstick at 30 and Revlon Colorburst Lip Review

Since it’s Valentine’s Day tomorrow and I know you’ll be kissing all day long, I wanted to brighten up those lips with some color!

My name is Pamela, I’m 30 years old and I just started to wear lipstick.
Insert Nervousness here.

To followup on my post earlier this week talking about the new Fashion/Beauty/Art section at BFG, I wanted the first review post to be about something that I’m currently learning all about: lipstick!  Why does it all have to be so complicated?  Sure, it’s easy as in you put it on your lips. But what about color? What about lasting all day long? What about accidentally smearing it and looking like a clown as noone tells you out of pity? Girl problems.

I decided a few months ago I wanted to start wearing lipstick.  I sent texts out to my friend declaring “I’m wearing lipstick!” to their confusion (note I did not insert the kissy lips emoticon – I can not bring myself to do that, yet).  I marched out of the bathroom after applying my new lip color, walked straight up to Matthew where he exclaimed “Woah”.  “Woah?”.  Is there a worst response?  What does “Woah” mean?  Is that good? Is that bad? Is that surprise?  Goodness, cut me some slack.  Give me something else to work with.  So after I made him give me 10 other descriptive words for each color, and asked him a million times if it looked bad, then I took a deep breath and stepped out of the house with color on my lips.  Was the world ready for this?

Here’s the thing about lip color.  You’re the only one who really knows it.  Sure, you can tell when someone else is wearing it (sometimes) but you’re the only one judging yourself.  It turns out wearing bright pink lips doesn’t make everyone on the sidewalk stop and stare in horror, they just keep walking by thinking in their head “Now that’s some great color” (or that’s what I tell myself).   If you can live confidently while wearing lipstick, everyone is going to think you wear it well and wear it every single day.    When I first wore my dark red lips outside of the house I was pretty sure people were going to throw things (and words) at me while walking down the street, but noone did.   It’s up to you to rule that color.

I heard great things about Revlon’s Colorburst Lipsticks in both the Matte Balm and Balm Stains so I bought 3 to try out in hopes this wouldn’t be a total disaster.
Each of the Lipsticks were approximately $9 at my local drugstore but online it says you can get them cheaper at Target so try there.   Also I got 2 Matte Balms as they were buy one, get one 50% off so I lived crazily and bought two – which I’m really glad I did. 

I made a video that reviews each, talks about lipstick worries, kissing boys (and cats) and just has a lot of me rambling on.  Grab a cup of tea and watch:

A quick run down on each:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm
Comes in 10 shades
Definitely Matte finish
Made of a Triple Butter Complex of Shea, Coconut and Mango so it does treat your lips as well as colors them.
Does last a long time, but it’s not perfect and will come off some on mugs and kissing partners.

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain:
Comes in 10 shades
Goes on lighter than what the color appears
Feels like a colored lip balm, very light weight.
Does last a long time.  Because they are more balmy, it tends to not leave too much of a color trace on mugs.

Verdict:  Try them! Buy them!  I’m a lover of these lipsticks.  They are great for experienced lipstick wearers or newbies like me.  I would try to buy a few colors, something light and something dark, to be able to try both ends of the spectrum.   

Revlon Review_2

Revlon Review_1

Trying them out:

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Elusive.
This is very Spring pink, think lots of flowers and tea parties in the garden.  It’s a really fresh fun bright color.
Revlon-Elusive

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Standout.
This is the vixen color, it makes me feel like a sexy librarian (check out my Brooklyn Public Library card).  It’s a very rich red and feels like velvet.
Revlon-Standout

Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Honey.
This is just a slight touch of pink, it looks and feels like a natural shade of light pink lip balm.  I tend to wear this every day. * FAVORITE*
Revlon-Honey

 
Tell me – have you tried these lipsticks yet?  Do you wear lipstick? Is there any color that you want to try now?

Homemade Chinese Pork Wonton Soup

Homemade Chinese Pork Wonton Soup recipe, just like your favorite Chinese restaurant makes!

Earlier this week Matthew and I celebrated 11 years together.    I met Matthew during my first few weeks at Art School in Pittsburgh in 2002.   Months later, we were dating.  Months after that, we moved in (with Essy!).   11 years later, we’ve changed locations, added a few furry children to the family and are still doing out art together.  What else do we do together?  We cook in the kitchen.

I would say that I cook the majority of the meals that we eat for dinner, but once in a while Matthew cooks up dinner and it’s always delicious.   One recipe he’s really into and made it his goal to perfect was homemade wonton soup.   Wonton soup is a favorite of ours and is one of the most popular things we order from Chinese takeout, but we wanted to make it ourselves, including making the wontons from scratch.   Matthew was on a wonton kick for a few weeks, where he spent many nights in the kitchen rolling dough and trying different filler contents to add to the wontons.    I have to say this recipe is the real deal and it receives a 10/10 on the “I Love You!” scale.

The World of Urban Decay

Hi guys,

I’m pretty excited to tell you in the next few weeks I hope to expand the new category of Art & Fashion of Brooklyn Farm Girl.    These two worlds are a big part of my life as it’s my job but I think I do a lackluster job at posting about it!    These are things I hope to post more about:

Fashion – I like wacky, colorful clothes and I love wearing sneakers.  Sometimes I just want to babble on about that pastel dress I saw and can’t stop thinking about.
Beauty – I’m 30 and I just started wearing lipstick.  That’s a big step!  More makeup, beauty reviews and advise on how to make your hair rainbow bright if you’re feeling up for it!
Art – I went to the recent Mike Kelly show at PS1 and because it made me smile, I need to share it with you.   I’d like to feature gallery shows, films, books and plenty of cool things happening around the web.
Personal Art – I really want to tell you more about what Matthew and I do for a living, especially because some of you have asked me!  I document everything, from beginning to start so I think it would be a great spot to show you how we product projects from inspiration, to working with our team and picking out clothes/models, to behind the scenes on set to the long part: post production.   I’d love to show you how we do it all, with screen shots along the way.  I’m pretty excited for these posts.

To kick it off, I wanted to review the new book “The World of Urban Decay” by Photographer Martin ten Bouwhuijs published by Schiffer Publishing.

The World of Urban Decay

After receiving this book I already bookmarked (as in real life bookmarks, weird, I know) a few pages for inspirations for our own projects.   If you’re into texture art, this book is going to be a dream for you and inspire you so much.

Living in NYC lots of people except the city to be new and pretty, but honestly New York is pretty old and at times not so pretty.   I don’t mean that in a bad way, I mean that in a great way because I personally appreciate those walls that have paint chipping off, the buildings that haven’t been touched in decades and the factories that people just got up and seemed to disappear.   All that and more is shown in this book.   I think lots of people will appreciate this book.  Those of you who love archicture will enjoy this book.  Those of you who love seeing the beauty in the ugly will enjoy this book.  Those of you who have snuck into a building or through a hole in a fence to take photographs to be kicked out by police (wave your hand proudly if this is you!) will really love and respect the photographer for these images.

Throughout this book you will see the photographer’s regular urban exploration missions throughout Western Europe thhat have culminated in this collection of haunting images made in abandoned hospitals, morgues, monasteries, power plants, schools, factories, swimming pools, and castles. Each location is described in a brief history, so you’ll learn how the building was used and more quick details.

Do you love these pictures and locations as much as I do? I especially love the last one.  We have a upcoming film coming up we’re directing and I’m totally dreaming of that location for a specific scene.   It’s just beautiful to me.

Hope you liked this review and enjoyed the beautiful world of urban decay!

The Best Fudgy Black Bean Brownies

This is the best Fudgy Black Bean Brownies recipe there is!  I’ve won a baking contest with these brownies!

We finished these brownies in 2 days.  I went into the brownie box (what, you don’t have a brownie box?) for one and there was no more left.  My hands started to shake, “Matthew, did you eat the last brownie?!” I shouted.  He said yes.  My night was destroyed.   The next day I made another batch.  These brownies are THAT GOOD.

Fresh Veggies Pasta Dish

This is one of those recipes that I cannot count the amount of times we have had it.  25? 50? 100? 200?  More?  

During the garden season it becomes a staple and we have it a few times a week.  It’s simple, it’s delicious, and you can totally customize depending on the vegetables you have on hand to use.  We usually always have it with carrots and sugar snap peas, but don’t be scared to experiment with your own loved veggies!   Maybe one week you have a bunch of kale left over and some radishes, throw it in!    This pasta dish is known as “Matthew’s Pasta Dish” in our house as he is always the chef of it.   Many times during the summer we make smaller bowls for lunch.  Sometimes we even have a bowl of it at night in bed.   It’s a win win situation all around.

Speaking of carrots,  many of you seemed pretty pumped for the upcoming garden season and are interested in starting your own garden.   If I could recommend a easy vegetable to start out with, it would definitely be carrots and radishes.  Carrots because they are pretty easy to grow, you just kind of plant them and they grow (ok maybe a bit more, but basically).  Radishes are great because the turn around is less than a month, and in gardening some quick satisfaction really makes you feel real good.

The Muffin Disaster and How I Lived To Tell About It

I know the title is so dramatic but these muffins are full of drama.

 A few days ago I decided I was going to make some big ol blueberry muffins for some friends the next morning.   I put together a recipe, threw on my Brooklyn Nets apron and headed to the kitchen to start to put all the ingredients together.  

The batter was amazing.   When the batter reaches the point of a certain yumminess, then you know what you’re making is going to be the best ever.  I took a few tastes of the batter.  Perfect.  I was feeling pretty good about myself.

Chili Cheese Dip and More Touchdown Worthy Dipping

This post brought to you by Sam’s Club. All opinions are 100% mine.

Chips and dip – is there anything better?  In fact right before I made this post I was catching up some reading while dipping some blue tortilla chips into salsa.  It sure is a favorite snack of many, especially around big game day events like The Super Bowl.

I’ve watched The Super Bowl for as long as I can remember and have fond memories of even being young, cheering on whatever team I was rooting for while enjoying snacks.  It always seems that sporting events and snacking goes hand in hand.

What’s one of my favorite dips?  Chili Cheese Dip, made with Hormel® Chili and Velveeta.  I spoke fondly of Hormel Tamales in the past with my Tamale Soup and their Chili is just as good.  And Velveeta? Let’s just say if I’m eating cheese or cooking with it, I will always cut a few extra cubes… just to snack on.   

Let’s just take a minute and admire some cheesy delicious dips.

Chili Cheese Dip

Ingredients:

1 (15-oz.) can Hormel® Chili No Beans
1 (1-lb.) pkg. pasteurized prepared cheese product, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

Directions:
In medium microwave-safe bowl, stir together chili and cheese product; cover. Microwave on High, stirring once, 4-1/2 to 5 minutes or until hot and cheese is melted. Serve with corn tortilla chips, if desired.

Velveeta Spicy Cheeseburger Dip

Ingredients:

1 lb. Velveeta, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 (10-oz.) can Ro*tel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
1 cup Kraft Shredded Low-Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 lb. ground beef, cooked, drained
4 green onions, sliced
 
Directions:
Combine all ingredients except onions in microwaveable bowl.
Microwave on High for 5 minutes or until Velveeta is melted and mixture is blended, stirring after 3 minutes. Stir in onions.
Serve with chips, crackers or a assortment of vegetables.

Dandelion Tea Donuts With Chocolate Frosting

Dandelion Tea Donuts With Chocolate Frosting recipe, including a dairy free option too!

Maybe this blog should be called Brooklyn Donut Girl.   If you haven’t noticed I’m a bit donut obsessed lately…

What else I’m obsessed with? Tea.  The craze started when I was elementary school and my mother started to serve me a cup each morning.  Let’s just say it rapidly increased to me declaring a lot of tea whenever I go through a airport.  It’s a strong love. 

First, let’s talk dandelions. Yeah, I’m talking about those pesky flowers you probably curse under your breath about when you spot them in your garden.  Of if you’re like me, you cut them up, tie a string around them, throw on a garden dress and pretend to have a wedding in the garden.  30 years old and forever a flower girl.    But did you know dandelions are good and healthy for your body?  Dandelions support the body’s natural detoxification process by stimulating the liver (oh lala) and supporting healthy digestion.    It also helps bloating (girl, you know what I mean), water retention, inflammation, upset stomachs, high cholesterol, helps you fight off viruses and boosts immunity, helps control weight control, works well with muscle building programs, great for Type-1 and Type-2 diabetes, amazing  minerals and viamins.  You can even use it as a face wash or use it in the bath tub for a great smelling time.  Did you know that Dandelions are named “the small postman” in Persian because of the thought that they bring good news?   So next time you’re craving a cup of tea,  look for the dandelion variety on the shelf, your body will love you!

Dandelion Tea Donuts With Chocolate Frosting

But you can do so much more with Dandelion tea besides drink it, you can bake with it.  Oh yes, you know I just went there.  Dandelion donuts with chocolate frosting?  Oh I totally just went there.  Grab my hand, let me take you on a ride.

I love these donuts for lots of reason (besides the obvious that I am obsessed with this chocolate frosting and I look like a 3 year old who licked the bowl afterwards).    The Dandelion tea is such a great friend to these donuts in taste.  They add sweetness (which means less sugar, high 5) but also a hint of licorice which is a nice addition.   The dandelion is not overpowering at all, but instead acts like a supportive friend.

Dandelion Tea Donuts With Chocolate Frosting

Here are 2 great Dandelion teas made by Traditional Medicinals.  I really love the Leaf & Root variety for these donuts because it adds that slight licorice taste that I like (again, it’s slight, not overpowering).  Note: I’m actually drinking this in tea form while posting this. Obsessed. 
Dandelion Tea Donuts With Chocolate Frosting

You’ll want to put 2 tea bags with some milk on the stove. Most likely tea will escape your bag during this process.  No worries, just strain it afterwards.  Wait till you smell this.

And then it’s donut time!
