GenCon 2015 - July 30 - August 2, 2015
Hi!

So, I'm not at all a big board game player or a big gamer at all. I play a ton of League of Legends and some small mobile games and that's about it. Oh I guess there is Hearthstone too. Yeah, I went to a table-top game convention with the intention of trying out a bunch of board games and spending time with my friends.



I had no idea how big this convention was going to be. Sure, I saw statistics and heard comments about last year's. But I never actually been to the location. Oh yeah, first time being in Indianapolis much less Indiana. It was a huge occasion, but it had its dense and not so dense areas. There were a few conjunctions where it was hard to maneuver. It wasn't so bad though. ;) My friends were a bit annoyed at me for always taking the stairs instead of using the escalator.

Recipe Review #1 - Biroche Dough from Bigger Bolder Baking

Hey guys!

Sorry I've been so MIA lately. I'm taking one small summer class and have been using all my lazy points during my free time. So hopefully, I'll be more productive in the future, right? I've been watching a lot of old shows like Inuyasha and Yu-Gi-Oh(don't judge me.) I've also been reading a lot of W.I.T.C.H. comics as of recently. Then, there is YouTube and League of Legends, which take up too much of my time. Don't worry, I swear I don't have a problem yet.

While I was on YouTube, I came across Gemma Stafford's channel - Bigger Bolder Baking. If you ever go on Youtube, Facebook, Pinterest, etc, you have probably seen her videos or things inspired by her videos. I discovered her about a year ago. I fell in love with her recipes and her videos. Her videos are spectacularly clean and crisp. It inspires me to make my own cooking YouTube channel, but then I'd get all frustrated about how my videos aren't clean. ;) But the only way to lea…

Las Vegas - Butterscotch Cinnamon Scones

Hi everyone!
I went to Las Vegas from last last Monday night through Wednesday night. Not being of drinking age and not interested in random partying, I just hung out with my sister, eating and walking our way around. Before my trip, I went shopping. Maybe for a cute blouse or swimsuit.

We stayed at the hotel, Paris Las Vegas. It was very nice. I really enjoyed seeing what I should've learned after taking French for three years in high school. Whoops.  I saw many different French pastries and goods at the cafes just in the hotel's area. I did like some of the different desserts that I tried. However, my favorite was this orange colored macaron with a chocolate filling. On a lollipop stick. I thought it was cute, but not the best way to serve a macaron at a buffet. The buffet was the Le Village Buffet.
When we got home, I was craving to experiment in the kitchen. I don't know, I really like trying to replicate something or just make some thing tasty. Before I went to Las Vegas…
