Talk To Me – This and That

Friends, please share your thoughts, comments, and or opinions on any or all of the following items.

1. Blueberry Muffins.

I am looking for a good blueberry muffin recipe.  I made the one from Ms. Betty Crocker, and well they were not that great.  First, they needed lemon zest.  Second, they were bland.  Third, they were dense, and I want something lighter and cake-i-er.

Do you have a good recipe?  Would you want to share?

2. Books.

I am looking for some good books to read.  GASP!

I know. 

If you know me at all you know that reading for me is skimming through a food magazine or skimming through a child’s book.  However, I feel like my brain is turning to MUSH.  More now than ever before, my brain is failing me and I think that perhaps reading books will help my brain become more active.

So any suggestions?!  What are YOU reading?! 

For the record, I tend to like sci-fi books. 

3.  50 Shades of Red.

So I have been seeing red lately.  Why, because I want to color my hair red and I am trying to figure out what shade to go with.

I know I will go with a semi-permanent color as it fades away nicely without leaving me with drastic roots.  Plus, I am not the kind of person who can commit to one hair color other than my own for a long period of time.

Now I know it all depends on your skin tones, but what are your thoughts on going red.  More so, what shades do you like?

Here are some examples.  I could go more copper, light red, dark red, auburn….so many choices!  

What color do you like?!  If you have an opinion, what color do you like for me?! :-)




(I don't think I am brave enough to go this color red!)







  1. 1. Well Jenn, you know I'm QUITE the baker/cook. So, you will I'm sure be shocked when I tell you that I indeed do NOT have a blueberry muffin recipe. :) Every time I make them they're bland, too.

    2. I'm reading a couple of books right now: The Christian Athiest and Bob Greene's (is that his name) Skinny Rules and also The Happiness Project. (Yes, I read more than one book at a time.)

    3. I LOVE the idea of red. I really like option #1, #2 and #9. :) I think you'd like great with red locks.

  2. I am reading The Princess Bride. They did a really good job keeping the movie like the book, just a little more back story in the book.

  3. 1. Sorry, no muffin recipe
    2. I just finished The Silver Linings Playbook - it's GOOD. I haven't seen the movie, and upon seeing the trailer for the movie, I'm guessing it's loosely based on the book. The book was a quick read.
    3. I love #10! Red! DO IT!

  4. 1) I don't have a good recipe either! How is this possible that none of us do?
    2) I have not read anything in a while! UGH! My last read of Darth Plageius by James Lucero was awesome. It's about the Emperor before he was the Emperor - you know, Sith training and stuff. It's pretty sweet (as in nerdy and would like it).
    3) I vote 1 or 2. POST PICS!
