5 Fandom Friday: Favourite Fictional Foods

If you follow any geek bloggers on social media you might have noticed '5 Fandom Friday' posts. It started about a year and a half ago by the incredibly talented Megan and Kristin. It's a weekly link up with prompts planned out ahead of time. You can check them out here.

Since I'm late to the party I might go back and do some past ones when I have some time or when my brain is on the fritz and I need help brainstorming blog ideas.

Today is Favorite Fictional Foods!

1. Butterbeer

The Harry Potter universe definitely delivered some amazing sounding food and treats that I wish were real. But mainly, Butterbeer! Yes, there are recipes everywhere for it. But I want the actual butterbeer from the books.

2. Senzu beans

In the world of Dragon Ball, Senzu beans have rejuvenating powers. They fulfill your health and restore your energy. This would be an amazing bean to have in our world!

3. Beer Batter Cupcakes with Maple Bacon Frosting

Yes, these are the cupcakes from 2 Broke Girls when Max and Caroline go on 'Spring Break'. I know I could find a recipe online for this type of cupcake, but I'd like to reach through my TV screen and just take one that Max bakes.

4. Marshmallow Mermaid Pie

Another food I could try to replicate in my kitchen, but I'd rather just take the entire pie that Keri Russell's character in Waitress makes.

5. Applejack's Cider

The cider from the Sweet Apple Acres must be pretty amazing considering how many ponies line up for it. I can't watch this episode without craving it.

What are your favourite fictional foods?

  1. The Marshmallow Mermaid pie is one I would really like to try and make. It sound yummy

  2. Yay, I picked Senzu beans too *virtual high five* Though I kind of wish i'd added Maple Bacon cupcakes! Nice choices..

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
