Praline Sweet Potato Casserole

I know that some may find it blasphemous (*cough*Ashleigh&Michelle*cough*) but I have never been a huge fan of marshmallows. I mean, I like them in ‘Smores and occasionally in hot chocolate… but that’s about it. Because of my distaste for marshmallows and my love of sweet potatoes I am beyond thankful that my sweet grandmother got this amazing non-marshmallow covered sweet potato casserole recipe from her sister-in-law. No one really knows where the recipe originated or how long it has been in the family, but…

Podcast #3: Fan vs. Fangirl

For our 3rd podcast we tackled the debate of fan vs. fangirl. I spend a lot of time teasing Katie for being a fangirl, but truthfully we all have fangirl tendencies. However, we really wanted to talk about whether we are actually fangirling or just being uber fans. We also talked a little bit about Marvel’s Phase 3 announcement and our Halloween adventures.

New ‘Insurgent’ Teaser Will Leave Fans Speechless

Remember when we published a post about how ridiculous the Cinderella (2015) teaser trailer was? Well it has been beaten by the newly released Insurgent teaser which, not only leaves way too much to the imagination, but seems like it is a trailer for a movie that has nothing to do with Divergent or the series of books that inspired the films.

Something to Make You Say ‘That’s Sweet’

About a month ago my sister and I were having our annual post- Texas OU humbling/gloat session (I went to UT, my sister OU) when we ran into a birthday party at our favorite meet up place on Greenville Ave. Being the awkwardly social person that I am, I, of course, had to find out whose birthday is was and, you know, learn everything about everyone in the group. Boy, am I glad that I did. While the birthday girl and I had a Libra moment…

Anniversary Dinner

Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary, which in case you were wondering is the leather anniversary or crystal/glass anniversary (thanks, Michelle!). Three years ago the weather was beautiful, albeit a little chilly.  This year though, it’s been pretty yucky outside so I decided that we would have a nice dinner and night in.  My local grocery store had some lovely New York strip steaks on sale and fresh green beans that I thought would make a fancy-ish anniversary dinner. THE STEAK…

Once Upon A Time, Take 2

A couple of months ago, I wrote a Late To The Party post about how I had tried to watch the hit show Once Upon A Time, but couldn’t get into it. My fellow Tipsies were incredibly disappointed in me, and continued their hounding and teasing until I finally caved. I decided to give it another go… (WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD) The deal was, “Just watch until Belle and Rumpelstiltskin meet. If you don’t want to watch after that, we won’t bother you anymore.” And this…

National Theatre Live and Fathom Events Present: Frankenstein

In the spring of 2011, renowned director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 28 Days Later) and Nick Dear partnered with National Theatre Live to put on a new production on Frankenstein, based on Mary Shelley’s classic novel. Three and a half years later, Fathom Events finally brought the play stateside, and Michelle, Tiffany, and myself got to see it for the first time. While Boyle and Dear kept the setting and heart of the story the same (Victorian-era England and Austria), the production itself was decidedly…

It’s the Great Pumpkin Bake-Fest, Charlie Brown!

Three years ago one of my very best friends, Rachel, called me up and said “Hey, I need to bring something to Thanksgiving. I don’t know what, but I have a few recipes I would like to try out… can I come over so we can bake pumpkin goodies and taste test?” Um, yes please! So she came over to my slightly-larger-than-her’s kitchen, and we baked, and baked, and baked.  We made mini crust-less pumpkin pies, something with pumpkin ice cream and self rising flour, pumpkin…

Leaked ‘Age Of Ultron’ Trailer is Incredible

Marvel wasn’t set to release the Avengers: Age of Ultron trailer for another six days, but some wonderful human being decided that the world needed to see it now. Brushing it off by blaming Hydra, Marvel took the leak in stride and now we can all get a glimpse of the much anticipated Avengers sequel.
