Weekly Poll: What's Cookin', Good Lookin'?

It's Wednesday and I'm eating cold, leftover soup for lunch. That seems appropriate somehow. Which brings me to my question of the week...


Do you know how to cook? If so, what's the dish you're most confident in making? If not, what do you wish you could make easily?


I know how to make a lot of different stuff, but one thing that never seems to fail is lentil soup - I've yet to meet a single person who didn't like it. Not that exciting, but a crowd-pleaser for sure. This was on my mind because I was showing my boyfriend how I make it yesterday - his somehow came out a totally different color than mine usually does, but it still tasted good, so high fives for him.

If I had to choose something I didn't already know how to make, I'd say an angel food cake without eggs. For a long time I didn't think that was possible, but then I read this blog post about making meringue with flax - mind blown.

Another day, another subscription box. Back to the sample-opening grind. It's tough work, I tell you. (OK, maybe not. But ripping open tiny packets can be hell on the fingernails.)

The box of the day is Vegan Cuts Beauty, which was my overall favorite of all the beauty boxes I received last month. Will it achieve the same high standard this time? Only one way to find out...

#fmsphotoaday April 2014 Challenge - Photo Roundup 3/4

Another week has passed, so it's time for more silly photos. Can you handle it?


I used my BlackBerry for all of them again this week, which I guess means that I've been more concerned with creativity than actually enhancing my photography skills. Oh well! The experience has been amusing, at least.

FORK IT: 5 candies I wish I got in my Easter basket

Happy Easter, everyone who celebrates!


Easter is not a holiday that I really have much personal experience with, but I appreciate that people use it as an excuse to give each other candy. Candy is nice. And given today's holiday, what better subject for my weekly food post than Easter candy? Not that I got any in my nonexistent Easter basket, but if I were to, these are the things I'd want.
