Super-rich Chocolate Muffins Recipe

Let me digress for a moment, and summarize my love for chocolate... The darker, the better, generally speaking. 85% cacao is my favourite. I love chocolate anything - muffins, cake, brownies, cookies, candy, crickets, coffee, caramel... okay, now I'm just listing foods that begin with C. (Actually, the chocolate crickets weren't that great) Anyway, my…

A Poem to a Foreigner

So, I wrote this poem after I met an exchange student from Europe. He had a great grip on American culture, and English, and all that, but he was eighteen, on a different continent. All my feminine, motherly instincts made me want to tuck him up and comfort him and give him chocolate, and let…

Princess Lullaby (Poem)

Hi, everyone! This is a little ditty I made up for a gal I was babysitting once, trying to get her to fall asleep. I sang it to her, coming up with rhymes as I went, and she seemed to like it, so I wrote it down and polished it to make what we have…

Banana Bread Recipe (No Sugar Added)

I am all about using as little oil, fat, and sugar in things as possible. That said, I LOVE eating sweets. Therein doth my creativity utilize itself. I cut back on a lot of the sugar and oil in my standard banana bread recipe by subbing in more bananas and yoghurt. If you aren't used…

Mountaintop Experience (Poem)

This is a short little poem I wrote when I was in the mountains. I had expected the trip to be a spiritually refreshing time, when I could pray, read, and write poetry; but I was frustrated that all the mundane things of the world had followed me, and I couldn't escape them unless I…

Dragon Demons (Poem)

This is a poem I wrote about how evil often disguises itself as something cool, beautiful, or even friendly, but it just spews lies. For the record, I really like dragons, but I do see them as a symbol of evil in nearly every culture. I think they represent insidious wickedness very well, since they're…

Desires and the Two Pains

I was thinking lately about desiring things, and how when we strongly desire something, it can affect our actions, even if we later regret it. Of course, a strong feeling is not a legitimate reason to do something; just because an emotion or want is powerful doesn't mean we can't resist it. But to return…

Mankind’s Story

Here's yet another poem about darkness/evil/hate/etc. I promise I'm actually I very cheerful and bright person, and not a borderline depressed girl. It's just that when I think about darkness, I get moody; when I get moody, I write poems. And when I write poems, I share them with y'all! 😀 But in reality, although I think…

Movie Theater Cookies

I figured another recipe was due, after all those poems. Not that the poems were bad - in fact, I'm rather proud of them, clearly. Nonetheless, in order to keep up the name Poetry and Pastry, I should share a recipe or two. The cookies are called Movie Theaters because they include the two best things at…

Sometimes (A Freeverse Poem)

Hey, all! This is a poem I wrote when I really wanted to be able to put my thoughts and feelings into a visual form, but I was greatly hindered by my artistic ineptitude. Put simply, I was sad (about something, I don't remember what now), I wanted to get the emotions out in a…
