So, I found this recipe on Facebook. Amazingly, that’s a pretty good resource for yummy recipes. Here’s the original recipe, with my own notes in parentheses. Homemade Reese’s Squares 1 cup butter (2 sticks) 2 cups creamy peanut butter 1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (one of the packages that come in any box of [...]
A little over four hours ago, I started my day (and week) with a lot of energy. Then, I realized that I was feeling tired, a little cranky, and not too happy with myself. So, I looked at how I’d spent those four hours, and the numbers related to them. I spent most of my [...]
After a very circuitous journey, I’m ready to resume this blog. Fingers crossed, I’ll actually find time to update it regularly. Since my last posts: Life has become more like the fairy tale I wanted to live in. The writing career went from “Why am I doing this when I’m not even earning minimum wage?” [...]
I’m not sure what I’m doing with this website. See, there’s something inutterably cool about owning my first name as a dot-com. I snagged it on a whim, with no clear vision for it, and I’ve never regretted it. I just haven’t figured out what to do with it. I look at the header and [...]
Corn bread is a favorite in my family, and it’s a fairly healthy, affordable snack. So, I was going to make some last night, using my usual recipe: Basic Corn Bread Recipe 1 cup corn meal (I like the organic, non-GMO kind.) 1 cup flour 1/4 cup sugar 1 Tbsp baking powder 1/4 tsp salt [...]
Every year, I seem to hit exhaustion at the start of November. As soon as the hyper-busy Halloween season is over, I’m ready for a nap. For a month or two. This year, it took me a couple of weeks to reach that point. I thought I could pursue fun activities, online, and keep my [...]
Since childhood, I’ve had bouts of really heavy dandruff. In high school, I used to joke that my dandruff was on the wrong schedule; it got worse in the summer. But, it wasn’t just normal dandruff, with white flakes on black clothing — though that was part of it — it was itchy, oily, thick [...]
I’m streamlining my websites, combining and consolidating some of them. After all, that’s what tags and categories are for: to separate articles and posts for people interested in just one topic that I write about. So, the /blog/ site is now here at plain ol’ eibhlin.com… not eibhlin.com/blog. I’ll be posting my news, opinions, discoveries, [...]
For the past 10+ years, this has been one of my favorite salad dressings. It’s based on a recipe from one of Susan Powter’s early books. I rarely measure the ingredients exactly, and the recipe always turns out well. French salad dressing 1/4 cup rice vinegar (find it in the Asian section of the regular [...]
April 2012 has been an amazing month, and we’re barely halfway through it. The catalysts have included: Having an Amazon best-seller in Kindle, The Content Creation Handbook. My younger daughter moving to Utah (end of this month). Several ah-HA! moments. A revisited mindmap as I re-examine my long-term goals, skills and interests. Okay, let me [...]
- Warning: These are my random notes. Mostly domestic. Sometimes (but not always) personal. If you don't know me in real life, a lot of this may not make sense... especially my humor.
My blog about writing -- comments and some how-to info -- is at eibhlin.com/writing.
My less active sites (at the moment):
If you're looking for my earliest, artsy blog/site, it's at Aisling.net.
If you're looking for my fine art (paintings, etc.), they're at eileen morey, the name I wore in high school.
In general, 2013 landed me in the middle of a large, virtual renovation phase. Very cool stuff. Expect fireworks at the ice cream social to follow.
