This blog is where I will focus on the sweet and not-so-sweet things in life. Everything from adventures in cooking to cultural/spiritual/world issues are subject to discussion. Just remember, THIS IS WHERE CIVILITY WILL REIGN. Enjoy!

I realize that its been a while.
Its been a long journey to and through culinary/pastry school. There have been ups and downs; things have gone sideways. My confidence, faith, and patience have been tried, BUT I am happy to say that as of this post that I have my Associates degree in Baking and Pastry Arts. My instructors have been amazing and amazingly supportive. The same goes for some of my family as well. I have met some amazing and interesting (*cough*) people.
On a different note, I am currently between jobs. As such, this is the perfect opportunity to get my thoughts together on how to best approach the future. My faith and my goals must align, or all this work will be unfulfilling at best. I have also decided to take time to get back to another old love -- drawing. Be on the lookout for photos of my works, both new and old. I would love to hear what you guys think. What do you all think of the new setup? I decided to tone down the patterns; I'm hoping some simplicity will class it up a bit.
I have learned so many new things and I thank all of you who have been keeping up with me on my personal page. Now it's time to sync up all my platforms and get things moving! I have stuff to bake! So until next time, God be with you all. Keep checking back for cool stuff!
Peace and Blessings,

Hi! Kiki here with a blog entry (finally).
To celebrate, I will start simply with one of my favorite subjects....
FOOD! Combined with one of my favorite things...
PInTerEst! Anybody else spend way too much time on there? Please tell me I'm not alone in this...
Anywho, I found this recipe for an amazing Sausage and white bean soup. Here is the original source http://itsmysideoflife.com/2012/06/white-beans-and-spinach.html#.UzFu57YSoy4
The great thing about this recipe is that it's really not set in stone. One can use different proteins, beans, or greenery. I kinda-sorta stuck to the original recipe. I had the kielbasa, fresh herbs (oregano and basil, thanks to my awesome landlord, Leslie), cannelini beans, kale, spinach, and chicken broth. I may have added some diced tomatoes for extra oomph.
This is one of the few soups that I don't grow tired of after the first day. I was genuinely bummed when I ran out three days later.
I hope you'll take the time to try this recipe and enjoy it as I did. Stay tuned for more Blogness!
