Brie Bites  with Sugared Cranberries |

Oh my gosh!  I can’t believe the holidays are here and that means parties galore. Whether you’re hosting a party or need to bring something to one, why not give this recipe a try? These Brie Bites with Sugared Cranberries will make a stunning addition to any holiday table and is a wonderful accompaniment to the festive cocktails of the season. It’s made with rich and creamy Brie cheese and topped with sugar-frosted cranberries. They make a simple, yet elegant appetizer. It’s  actually quite easy to make, but it requires some planning as the fresh cranberries are best when soaked in simple syrup overnight.

Ode to the Booty…

my booty is so delicious, 

oh yes it’s quite bewitching

full and round and real, 

your hear races when it’s twitching

my lips are a soft enchanting rose, 

so full of captivation

and my eyes are filled with promises 

that hide my excitation…

(side-note: yes, I write poetry about body parts…deal w/ it) 

Hello, world…as Christmas draws closer, I have been thinking about what the Holiday season means to me. 

Spiritually, it means a time to be close to my family, appreciate the life that I have been given. 

I also appreciate my extended family, friends, and pets. My home, and education, my sense of humor and sensitivity. My love of books and music. My memories. 

These are all priceless gifts that have been bestowed upon me, which cannot be replaced. 

More to come, still getting the hang of this blogging thing 🙂 

“Be the  change you want to see in the world” — Dalai Lama


Well, this is my first post, so welcome readers! (if I have any) 🙂

My name is Penny, and my husband and I currently live in Missouri. I have 5 pets: 2 cats, 2 dogs, and a bunny rabbit. We do not have any children of the 2-legged variety, but our 5 adorable 4-legged children more than make up for that. I am currently on a break from my third year of college. At this point in my quest for furthering my education, I am finding myself in a bit of an existential crisis. Who am I? What do I really want to do with my education? What do I feel passionate about? … During this break, I have found at least one answer. I am passionate about writing. I have several creative writing project ideas on my mind. Also, perhaps because of my True Pisces nature, I have an artistic soul. I want to paint, I would like to take my love of real-life photography more seriously, and I would like to get into doing craft projects. 

Well, for now that is all I can think of so until the next time.
