Oh man. You guys. This fkn recipe. I swear if I didn’t know better, I’d consider myself an actual dessert chef after turning a simple vanilla cheesecake recipe into a goddamn cookies and cream sensation. You can also easily ditch the cookies and cream related ingredients and replace with whatever you like!Continue reading “No-Bake Cookies & Cream Cheesecake”
As promised, pray4kates is back in action.
It’s been a while, I know.
As a writer, finding motivation, sourcing inspiration and avoiding procrastination are my worst enemies. I’m working on finding ways to sort my shit out. I promise there will be regular posts in future.
As a socially awkward introvert, the very thought of partaking in any kind of role-playing activity generally has me ducking for cover. Instead, with some thorough coaxing from friends, I decided to give Dungeons & Dragons a go. I created a character who is a socially awkward introvert, therefore I am completely within my element.
It’s safe to say that I’m D&D obsessed. The narratives, the characters, the backstories, the hilarious highs and the downright soul crushing lows. The stories involved in this seemingly simple game are absolutely astoundingly awesome!Continue reading “Why Everyone Should Play Dungeons & Dragons”
Winter. The bane of my existence. It is almost upon us and I am far from prepared.
Let’s quickly delve into a few reasons (there are so, so many) as to why I feel like Thanos really dicked things up by not including this foul season in his ‘sit down, be humble snap’.
I turned 26 this week.
My little sister turns 23 this year.
My 5 year old nephew is almost taller than me.
In 4 years I’ll be 30.
I think I’m having a quarter life crisis.
Hello. It me. Your friendly neighbourhood Kates.
Welcome back to this severely neglected blog. I didn’t mean to treat it so badly. I’ve been lazy over the past few months, but no longer! It’s time to revive this poor, half-dead beast to its former glory. Granted, its former glory is basically the equivalent of a tame little kitten who just wants to be loved, not at all comparable to a fully grown leopard out hunting shit and being a total bad-ass.
Except when it doesn’t.
See below a blow by blow account of a winery tour the bf and I embarked on whilst gallivanting around Adelaide a while back.
I’ve posted this on Facebook in the past so if you’ve already read it, more power to you. If not, buckle up. You’re in for a wild, alcohol fueled journey through Adelaide’s wine region.
Oh, before you read any further, you should know that neither the bf or myself are avid wine drinkers. This tour was booked on a whim and we were flailing about trying to be prim and proper, upstanding members of society the whole time, to fit in with the crowd. We failed. Miserably. But it’s the thought that counts, right?
Anyway, without further ado, let the tour begin…
In the kitchen justice system, dishwasher based offenses are considered especially heinous.
In Sydney, Australia, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Kitchens Unit. These are their stories.
Welcome to the third installment of this blog. There will be many gifs. Prepare thyself.
Today we’ve been graced with some minor precipitation. It’s been raining and, true to form, I just slipped on the lip of the gutter as I stepped out to cross the road.
Welcome to my humble abode. Come in. Make yourself at home.
I’ll put the kettle on. We may be here a while.
What you’ll see below is my attempt at an introductory blog post. It’ll probably get weird. But whatever. That’s likely why you’re here. Continue reading “An Introduction of Sorts”
