Book Review: Unstoppable Moses by Tyler James Smith

Is there any better way to kick off book reviews on this blog than by reviewing a debut novel by an up-and-coming author? Perhaps reviewing a debut novel by an up-and-coming author that I’ve known since I was a small child? I’m writing this review from a completely unbiased perspective, so I’ll get this littleContinue reading “Book Review: Unstoppable Moses by Tyler James Smith”

Books I’ve Read & Plan to Review

This is just a list for my own mental clarity that will help me recall which books I have read (and need to re-read) and intend to review. Find a list of books I have already reviewed here. Then, novels I have read and am in the process of reviewing: The Sky is Everywhere byContinue reading “Books I’ve Read & Plan to Review”

Cooking: Fried Zucchini Discs

On the same day that I made Fish Tacos & Churros with my dad’s help, we made some fried zucchini! We are up to our ears in zucchini over here. The batter was very simple- flour, salt, water. Next time around, I would add more salt and maybe some other seasonings, because it truly hasContinue reading “Cooking: Fried Zucchini Discs”

Cooking: Fish Tacos and Churros

I love fish tacos. Love. Seriously, if I go to a restaurant that sells fish tacos, I usually get fish tacos. I wanted to make some fried fish tacos with some of those flavors you associate with mexican food- although I have to say, it was much weaker than anticipated. I used a batter madeContinue reading “Cooking: Fish Tacos and Churros”

Cooking: Fruity Pebbles Cereal Treats

Today we made cereal treats out of fruity pebbles. These are delicious, but also very pretty. I just used the basic Rice Krispie Treat recipe from Kellogg’s and substituted Rice Krispies with Fruity Pebbles. First, we melted 3 tablespoons of butter on the stove. Then, we melted in an entire bag of mini marshmallows. Next,Continue reading “Cooking: Fruity Pebbles Cereal Treats”

Cooking: Tuscan Creamy Butter Salmon

Let me preface this by saying that I absolutely will (and must) re-shoot these images. They are not my best work. While ordering groceries a few weeks ago, I knew I wanted to make salmon. But I didn’t want to make salmon the way I’ve always made salmon, because although it is delicious, I hadContinue reading “Cooking: Tuscan Creamy Butter Salmon”

Cooking: Banana Bread Pancakes (+ Crescent Roll Egg Bake)

Because I love to put bananas on my pancakes, and because I love the song “Banana Pancakes” by Jack Johnson, I made banana pancakes. Banana bread pancakes to be specific.  I followed this recipe which calls for bananas, buttermilk, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, brown sugar, butter, egg, and salt.  First, my little helperContinue reading “Cooking: Banana Bread Pancakes (+ Crescent Roll Egg Bake)”

Cooking: Simple General Tso Stir Fry

Tonight I felt like making a stir fry, and I’m far from good at it, but it was okay nonetheless. First, I chopped up bell pepper. I used about 2 peppers worth, but from 3 different colors (I set about 1 pepper worth aside to use in a cheesy Mexican skillet later in the week.) Next,Continue reading “Cooking: Simple General Tso Stir Fry”

Peony & Peach Photography | My Portfolio

If you know me, you know I’ve been doing photography as a hobby for about 12 years. I had various point-n-shoot cameras as a middle and high schooler, and I had a decent eye for a teenager. I got my DSLR with my graduation money after graduating high school, when I was 18, about sixContinue reading “Peony & Peach Photography | My Portfolio”
