Granola Recipe

As a home cook and frequent baker, I like finding recipes I can alter to fit my pantry. Here is a great  from  .  I use combinations of wheat germ and flaxseed meal or almond or coconut flour as my “something else” dry ingredient.

How to make granola without a recipe.

Storing cilantro

This cilantro stayed in the fridge for weeks in a cup with water & covered by a bag. Most of it is still good. Without the bag & water, it goes bad in a day. It is also very difficult to grow in my area. I will keep my cilantro this way from now on.

Too weird not to share

This is a link to an article & video made by Johnny Depp after he was taken to court over not declaring his dogs when he entered Australia.  As a recent traveler to the country, I can attest to the importance of keeping pests out of Australia.  They have a delicate ecosystem, & it needs to be protected.


Premium Life

I broke down and signed up for Crunchyroll Premium.  It looks amazing.  I watch almost all of my anime on their site, so it makes sense for me to use it.  Also, I can save some money on new manga by reading titles I might not purchase on their website.  I also feel guilty when I use adblockers–I’m in advertising but hate ads; go figure–and want to make sure the artists, translators, and hosts receive payment for their hard work.

I didn’t want to do it too quickly, but I think I may go ahead and buy Helter Skelter by Kyoko Okazaki.  I resisted for a while, but it looks excellent.  I find different manga and other books very inspiring.  Even though I’m saving to revamp add to my recording studio and computer system, I think it will be worth it.



I love beautiful lingerie.  It has to be more than sexy.  It needs to evoke a mood and achieve a certain level of comfort.  Unfortunately, the best underwear can be more expensive than the outfit covering it.  I have managed to restrain myself on some occasions; other times, my bank account wasn’t so lucky.  Today, I purchased some excellent additions to my wardrobe.  I think they will look fantastic.
