Cheese- Easiest Ever!

This cheese recipe came to me from my gramps and verified by a Romuva member. I grew up with a cheese that wasn’t like anything else I had tried since. It was soft and pale, but my gramps would make and flavour it in many ways. Finally, after searching his cookbooks and getting the information about Lithuanian suris, I’ve finally gotten a good recipe for this cheese. (I’m so excited!)

Updates, Me, and Why Pandemics Suck

You’re probably have been wondering where the posts have been for the past few months. So have I. In fact, I’ve got some I need to edit and start posting. Some are from my old site, some are things I’ve been working on but hadn’t had time to upload. I need to hand them over to the magnificent Crystal Storm to take care of, while I do some work for her. (We do that– help each other out. It’s an awesome thing.) But I miss posting my comic reviews, my witty takes on the moment, and even having regular time

Writing- Things I’ve learned

It’s funny. I write, I edit professionally, I even podcast. Yet, I keep reaching further to do more, to accomplish new things. When I took a break from writing in late 2016/2017, I wasn’t sure I’d write again. I found myself feeling very isolated in the world I once occupied quite happily. I look back at that time & realise just how much stress, anxiety, and fear I lived with. I’m surprised no one else saw it. More, I also realised it was then I honestly believed I couldn’t be myself–my true reader/writer self. The person who loved to review,

Serial Box- Dead Air Review

I am addicted to audiobooks which have an ebook with them. Let me state this upfront before we even get to the review. One of the best parts of Serial Box is that you can indulge yourself as you wish with some of their stories. With this particular one, I was able to get all the episodes at once and I could either binge until I fell apart, or carefully listen episode by episode, scaring myself silly. So, of course, I did both–which scared me even more. Gods, I so love Serial Box!

Happy Days or I have a podcast

            There comes a moment when you realise you must step up and do something new. Most people know me as co-host on Jay Sandlin’s What Happens Next podcast. Thanks to Delvin Cox of The Delvin Cox Experience, Jay, and Crystal Storm- I’ve started my own podcast, Phoenyx Tales.  It’s a heart based show. The idea is simple- talk about what interests me, what touches me, talk about the parts of life that made me become better. Sharing the journey of writer, editor, healer is something I never considered until I was told to give
