As someone who cannot stand to watch baking/cooking shows, I must say, The Great British Bake Off is rather nice.  It’s not annoying or filled with unnecessary drama, I love the casual abbreviation of puddings to “puds” and of baked goods to “bakes.”  There are oven drawers that slide into the wall, and proofing drawers for bread!

And though I usually don’t care for fancypants baked goods, the food doesn’t seem stuck up like it does on American baking shows.

A cat rice bowl I bought for not eating rice (but for wet cat food, of course).

A few dinner recipes I’ve tried:

Velveting chicken will make it more like soft, juicy take out chicken!  It worked, though maybe cook the chicken in only the oil (the water made it spit dangerously).
- I used the chicken for Cashew Chicken, though with a bought stir fry sauce.
- Baked Zucchini Fries.  They were good with melted cheese on top!

DIY Chocolate Robots Tutorial from Handmade Charlotte. At first when I saw the thumbnail on Bloglovin for this DIY I thought, “Oh no. Another DIY that needs expensive molds.” But no - this is made up of easily available candy and candy melts. Fun tutorial.

These should have been called “Choco-bots”
