Deep Fried Butter, Anyone?

Deep Fried Butter

Deep Fried Butter

As if your doctor has not given you enough warnings about butter! This dessert is the concoction of Chef Simon Robertson, who said that the deep fried butter dessert was conceived with the idea of “adding fun” to their Scottish menu. Also known as “heart attack on a plate”, this deep fried butter is made of frozen butter balls and served with Irn Bru batter. If you like your whiskey, then you ought to go for the Braveheart Butter Bombs. They’re also deep fried butter, but with a splash (or two) of whiskey.

Maybe I am sick, but for some reason, I am not too enticed. Would you try this dessert out?

Practical Guide to Letting Go


Lego! No!

We all have to let go of something or someone at some point in our lives. In fact, I have come to realize that letting go can be described as a regular activity. When we were young, we might have had to let go of a pet. I remember going through this process when our dogs died (not all at the same time, thank God). I may not have thought of it as letting go back then, but it is what it is.

Sometimes, letting go is all about material things. Kids lose toys or break them. There is a kind of letting go in that process.

As teenagers, we let go of relationships – both the platonic and romantic kind. As young adults and young professionals, we might have had to let go of dreams: a promotion, a job that we’ve always wanted, partners, and so on.

Letting go is part of life. There is no going around it. Continue reading



Courage quote

This has got to be one of my new favorite quotes. I used to be a person full of fear, which I thought I had overcome. I guess to a certain degree, I did overcome many of my fears.

Once again I find myself at a stage where I face the need for courage. There are days when it comes a-roaring like the a Mack truck at full speed. There are, however, many days when courage seems to slink around like a hunter stalking its prey. Today, courage just seemed to give up on me.

Then as I lay in bed looking back at the events of the day, this quote came back to me. I think that’s courage whispering in my ear, telling me that tomorrow is another day. I hope it comes to you when you need it most as well.

This Is What the Beatles’ Album Covers Look Like Pixelated

I haven’t outgrown the Beatles, and I don’t think I ever will. I am not the most enthusiastic of fans, but their music never fails to uplift my spirits. Of course, there are certain songs which are just plain boring or silly, but in general, the Beatles are a good go-to band.

Beatles fans would know their album covers by heart. I’ll be honest and say I don’t, but that doesn’t take away from the fun of seeing some of their covers from a different perspective; that is, pixelated.

Flavorwire1 showcases some of the pixelated covers. Feast your pixel-hungry eyes.
