Earlier last week I had an extra passenger whom I unknowingly at first hitched a ride with me. Now before you jump to conclusions no there wasn’t a psycho murder waiting for me in my car to take them to where they wanted to go. Instead I had a passenger who hung six on the hood of my car the entire drive into work. My … Continue reading Hanging Six All the Way to Work
You know that old saying; “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!” I am there. I am not going to divulge what it is that has me frustrated and discouraged and feeling like….uggh, but after reading an article on LinkedIn on my lunch break this afternoon, I now know that I am not the only one out there in this same predicament. I know that … Continue reading Oh, Lemons!!!!
Last Sunday was one of the scariest moments for me as a parent. At 1:42 am I was awaken by the most strangest sound coming out of my cell phone. It wasn’t part of the normal symphonic sounds that would normally chime from my phone. This sound was hard to describe but foreign enough to wake me out of my slumber. As looked over on … Continue reading Too Close
Life in my world of writing has been a little bit uneventful. Truthfully when it comes down to it, I don’t want to be burned out on the blogging thing.

All last week the biggest … Continue reading To Be Fair…

Towards the end of fall semester of 2018 I had a rather large marketing assignment in my sales class that involved writing a skit and preforming the skit (I asked TW to help me with this part) via video selling Stubb’s BBQ products to a fictitious restaurant in San Diego, California. The skit was well written however, TW and I will be keeping our day … Continue reading Oh Stubbs, You Are For Real!
Last weekend TW and I went to a sound system debut hosted by TW’s friend Jim. The same Jim I asked to play Don’t Call Me Al by Paul Simon on New Years Eve. Then absolutely caught him off guard with my song request. What? What do you mean, don’t call you Al? Your name is Alexandria after all! Yep, that friend Jim! The new … Continue reading Shed Ivy
The Flag Cake is a cake that most of us have come accustom to having on the table at Fourth of July get togethers. It really is unmistakeable with its raspberry stripes and the blueberry star background all nestled in a cream cheese frosting. This ingenious creation was given to us by Ina Garten from the Barefoot Contessa [cookbook: Family Style] which was first featured … Continue reading The Infamous Flag Cake
When I entered into the world of food service I had some knowledge which was taught to me by my mom of how to cook and prep. My very first job is where I picked up almost all of my skills that I carry with me today. Such as don’t put a metal pan in the microwave (oops! At home we didn’t have metal pans) … Continue reading One Core, Two Core
I have seen the hoopla of what some folks go though to make their ice coffee. I will hand it to them and give credit where it is due. I’m going to be honest, I really don’t understand all the fuss of making ice coffee the way some folks do. Is there some kind of mysterious scientific process that happens that I am just not … Continue reading My Version of Ice Coffee
