Gluten Free Pantry: Bob’s Red Mill GF Oatmeal w Flax & Chia

Breakfast is undeniably my favorite meal.  Its the only food type that has no restriction on time for me – but Celiacs has robbed me of the ability to feast on all of the delicious gluten that usually accompanies it. Enter alternatives.   I have always been a fan of Oatmeal.  I usually buy it…

Watch Worthy – Hannibal Takes Edinburgh

Hannibal Takes Edinburgh is a refreshing approach to a comedic documentary that is surprising and funny.  Hannibal has always been fascinating to me; from his deadpan delivery to his seemingly perfect mix of friendly and aloof. Shot in 2012 at the world-famous Edinburgh Fringe Festival that features hundreds of shows in 25 days – Burress would perform…

The connection to Sebastian, the “Butler” in Black Butler is immediate; he’s gorgeous and obsesses about etiquette and taking care of the young Master Ciel who comes off as a whiny brat in the first few episodes.

*Please note, there are some spoilers in this review, if you haven’t watched the movie yet…you know the rest* This movie was almost being force fed to me; it showed up in most of my horror related lists so, I finally gave in. It’s important of me to note, when I first noticed the movie…

Shadowshaper – This is not a review, not really.

If you haven’t heard of Shadowshaper by Daniel Jose Older then I clearly haven’t been doing my job as an advocate. It’s a YA novel that features an Afro-Latina protagonist from Brooklyn, who finds her self, her magic and her light with the help of her curiosity, reasoning and amazingly delightful group of friends and family…

Scribblenauts Unmasked

Since Aden got me a 3ds last year to play Pokèmon X, I’ve only played one other game on the hand held, the Adventure Time game.  I realize that I’m far from adjusted to old school platformers so didn’t want to invest in a game that would make me mad…so here we are. It’s got…

Polar Loop

I traded up my Fitbit Flex for a Polar Loop so I will use it for a few weeks then give a full review here are are the basics so far: I love that I can use the loop to tell time. The Flex didn’t have that feature. While the loop is larger is is…

The Color Complex

Snapped while reading. I really always have a problem with the insistence that Jesus would have been white but that’s not my battle to fight. The Color Complex: Kathy Russel, Midge Wilson and Ronald Hall. This is my second read through and it was less devastating this time around. I could take the emotion out…

The Goddess Chronicle – Natsuo Kirino

I’ve been a fan of Natsuo Kirino for some time; my first run in with her was with Out. A fellow voracious reader recommended her when I said that there were no female mystery writers. I read Out, twice, back to back and then moved on to Grotesque and The Real World. I was mesmerized…
