Objects and Objections: Irish Soda Bread Revenants

Sing with me, to the tune of Greensleeves:
What slime is this, quite chauvinist,
into my lap is creeping?

Berry Berry Go Kickass | Omega-3 Powerhouse Muffins

“I am my own leader” read one of the affirmations I received this week from The Virtues Project.

Muffins as a Creative Outlet

As Julia Cameron wrote in The Artist’s Way, paraphrasing another artist, when you’re out of the studio for three days, by that third day, you’ll do anything to get back to your art and nobody better stand in your way. I came home from my first week of work on Friday (a yearlong fellowship [ed. note: NOT!!]) and made muffinz. Zucchini muffins.
