For my Nashville and Middle TN friends: Since my Yuletide cake truffle collection went over pretty well, I decided to have another go for St. Paddy’s. Drunken Irishman are by far one of my most popular flavors and requested year round. These truffles take their queue from a certain cocktail with an off-color name. We start with a Guinness chocolate cake that has booze baked in, as well as brushed on, mix it with a potent Bailey’s buttercream, then dip in a swirl of white candy coating and bittersweet Jameson ganache. Very little of the booze used in these bad boys bakes out, so each bite packs a punch. This year you can drink your booze and eat it too!
Decided to finally do an accent challenge video. I do dumb one eye blinking stuff a lot and ramble on at points but it’s whatevs. Hope it amuses you!

These days it kind of feels like baking is just about the only creative hobby I have that having an injured wrist hasn’t taken away. So, this is happening. It’s going to be a holiday cake truffle bonanza! I’m hoping to find the perfect metal tins to hold 12 cake truffles, including 2 of each flavor. Right now pricing is tentatively $15. I should have more firm information in a couple of days. Currently plans are to only make about twelve tins in total [lest there be a crazy unexpected high demand for more], so if you think you might want one, let me know asap!
P.S. for those who are wary, the fruit cake truffles will be nothing like the holiday abonimations you find in stores. At least, there will be no green cherries in sight. It will be a delicious spiced cake with fresh and bright flavors like cranberry, orange, lemon, raisin, and walnut.
Hi there. I’m Kim. I’m 24. I moved to Nashville a couple months ago and you know you want to be my friend.
I curse a lot. I’m kind of a sarcastic ass. Some of the things I enjoy are knitting things [I will teach you if you don’t know how already!], playing video games, scrapbooking and other arts and crafts, partaking in the occasional glass of bourbon/hard cider, marathon sessions of old TV shows on Netflix, reading books, taking and editing photos with my piece of shit camera, riding bikes, and more than anything else, baking. I could never bake enough. I’m hoping to one day get a job that allows me to do it in some fashion that will sustain me financially.
Things I don’t enjoy: smoking weed, shopping til I drop, using single letters instead of full words when trying to communicate [U is not a word. Ot is a vowel.], small children, homophobia, being politically correct, and people who “hate drama” but seem to be surrounded by it.
So, that’s me in a nutshell. Send me a message and let’s hang out sometime?
Guess who became a little older today? This gal! I am now 24 years old. Nearly as old as a good bottle of bourbon. My family is in town visiting and wants to take me out somewhere but I have no clue where to go.
Any one have some sweet Nashville restaurants to suggest for my birthday dinner?
Second, I got a job! Woo for employment! I can take the bus for the most part but on Sunday I need to be at work by 6 AM and on Monday I need to be there at 5 AM, which is too early to bus. So, I’m looking for someone to car pool with or just someone who could drive me. I live in North Nashville near Brick Church and Ewing and my work is near 21st and West End close to Vandy. I can offer gas money.
Could anyone help me out or know someone who could?
I have run out of the yarn I need for my afghan knitting project. So, no more knitting til I get a job and can buy more. That is unless someone gets me some for my birthday. It’s Bernat Denim Style in Canvas if anybody is feeling generous. ;) Any way, since I can’t knit and my resources for free stitch patterns are pretty used up, anyway, I thought I’d head down to the library tomorrow to scour through some books there.
Also, I’ve been here almost a month and still hardly know any one. So, any body want to veg out at the downtown library with me tomorrow?
