You might have heard that Lindsay Lohan is introuble again...allegedly assaulting a woman in a NY nightclub Thursday night. Here's a video outside of the 10th precinct of LILO's departure and the other chick. It's a reality show just brewing to be seen.
I was hoping that Lilo would turn things around. Think she can get back on the turn it around to a better Lilo wagon?
Adorable.. Sexy.. are not to words that pop in my head when I see this guy...
North Korean supreme leader Kim Jong-un, 29, has officially been named 2012's Sexiest Man Alive by The Onion. The article has words like macho, charming, impeccable fashion sense, chic short hairstyle... ??? What am I missing? Do you see 'The Sexy'?
The bone china bulldog figurine that sits on 'M's' desk in the movie Skyfall has become a hot desk accessorie. 'JACK' is hard to find. He's a sell out and back order in many places until February 2013!!
Before his Bond−linked reincarnation, Jack had gone out of manufacture. The original Jacks have been selling on the secondary market for about $1,800.The reborn Jack has an ID backstamp − "DD007" (stands for Doulton Dog) − and for $80 comes kennelled in a special "Skyfall" box sleeve."
I tried a new cookie recipe I ran across over the holiday weekend. There are many variations you could do with them. Give it a try and put your spin on it. I call them 'Stuff in a Cookie..Cookie'... also called "Compost Cookies'. Don't be afraid to use the coffee grounds.. the not so secret (now) ingredient!
You could do all kinds of variations. The coffee grounds I dried out using the microwave. The dough is pretty sticky, so parchment paper on the cookie sheet for baking it s huge plus for evenly brown bottoms on the cookies and no sticking to the pan.
1 1/2 sticks butter
3/4 cup dark brown sugar 1 cup of regular brown sugar (what I had) 1/4 cup white sugar 1 cup 2 tablespoons dry, used coffee grounds (dried in microwave) Wet Ingredients
1 egg 2 eggs 1 tablespoon vanilla 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons of Vanilla Cinnamon coffee creamer Dry Ingredients
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour 2 cups 3/4 cup roughly crushed potato chips 1 cup 1/2 cup roughly crushed pretzels ¾ to 1cup 1/2 cup roughly crushed Fritos 3/4- to 1 cup of Cocoa Chex Mix 1/2 cup butterscotch chips 1 cup 1/2 cup chocolate chips 1 cup (My honey Ted thought they needed a bit more chocolate chips, the last batch I added some mini chocolate chips. ) 1 teaspoon baking soda ½ teaspoon baking soda and ½ teaspoon of baking powder
The person that submitted this recipe mentioned their cookies were flat. They should have put the dough in the refrigerator for a while. I had the dough in the frig for about 6ish hours. You can also make it the night before and let it stay in the frig overnight. This seemed to give the cookies a lift. Also the baking powder may have helped with that too! Make sure you have parchment paper lining your cookie sheets. It’s pretty sticky dough.
1. Preheat oven to 350º.
2. In your Kitchen Aid or a large mixing bowl, cream together the creamables.
3. In a small bowl, combine the wet ingredients and whisk together until smooth.
4. Add the combined wet ingredients to the creamables. Mix together until well incorporated.
5. In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients. Using a spatula, fold together until evenly distributed.
6. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the combined creamables and wet ingredients. Mix until evenly combined. (*Optional: Chill dough for 2 hrs or overnight. I suggest doing this!)
7. Shape dough into balls–about 2 tablespoons each.
8. Place dough balls about 2 inches apart on Silpat- or parchment paper-lined cookie sheets.9. Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and let stand for 2 minutes. Then place cookies on wire racks to cool.

You might even run across a wine break while you are cooking, and everything will be done at the same time. Hot, Yummy and ready to eat. I put together a Thanksgiving Turkey Twist for the big day.Instead of using ground beef, you can use ground turkey.. ground chicken. Take a look.
-When you throw a cranberry and it bounces it's ripe and perfect to make cranberry sauce. I'm making cranberry sauce, so I'm ready to toss some C-Berries on the kitchen floor/counter to see if they will bounce.
-Most turkeys come from Minnesota.
- The traditional turkey dinner is around 3,000 calories. It takes about 29 miles of running to burn it off. Guess it's cool to start training for a marathon after Thanksgiving. Although I think power shopping on Black Friday could burn off ALOT of calories too.

(Perez) A Ukrainian singer named Aza who is suing Carly and her manager for stealing from her song 'Hunky Santa'. Aza seems to be upset that Carly's song 'Call Me Maybe' has lyrics that are in Aza's song."I'm shocked and surprised that these people wanted to sample my lyrics on their song. They didn't ask me for permission, they just took it. That's why I filed this lawsuit. When I first heard it on the radio, I was driving and almost got into an accident. I couldn't believe what I was hearing." Does Carly deserve to be on the Naughty List?
I'm not hearing anything similar? Do you?
'Call Me Maybe'
Maybe the use of the words 'Call me'... that 'Maybe' stretching it! But KUDOS to AZA she's getting lots of peeps to check out her strange holiday song just in time for the holidays.
My favorite is Breakfast food. I eat Breakfast for dinner quite often, but I seem to do the same thing a lot. The standard waffle, pancakes, eggs.. that kind of thing.

I got the grocery list that was created for me by CPI.com. If you have a smart/phone/iphone and/or iPad you can also get an app to use CookingPlanIt.com. Easy, fun and yummy! Here's what I'm going for tonight...
I decided to modify the French Toast recipe a bit. Skip the peaches and make the classic Cranberry Sauce. It sounded yummy, and since the holidays are approaching, it works!

Once I start cooking CPI will give me step by step directions on what to do, so the whole meal is done at the same time. Breakfast for Dinner will be warm and yummy. I'll let you know how it goes.

Sitting in traffic this morning, the car in front of me had this bumper sticker on it! I was doing exactly that when I saw it! I do it all the time. Anyone else do 'Car Karaoke' to get through traffic jams? If not, you should start. It really does relieve the tension of being stuck in traffic. If you sing off key, better yet!

Hey y'all, I touched base with Matt again today. Just about a year ago, I was given the 'Matt Glamour Look' and we chatted about his new project at the time 'Face off 2'. This past year has been a busy one since the show. He's got a cool workshop this weekend in ATX with his business Global Fear Enterprises! He's been travelling sharing his scary and uber talented talents.
Today I had the pleasure of chatting with Matt to see what's up. Find outwhat Global Fear Enterprises is all about. What event in his childhood got him interested in Horror and started the road to his passion for special effects makeup and things scary. Plus his thoughts on Face Off 2! Would he do it again if he could? Did he like the changes in Face off 3?
Matt's plans for the holidays..,
What would Matt do if he was President?
(He's kidding right?)
