The Spill

WARNING: This week’s spill is serious.
It is something from a list of things I want to address and an incident happened online and I felt I should be writing something.

This post is against bullying.
Bear with me

I believe bullying is unacceptable.
We should teach those we have an influence on to be kind and not to be bullies. At the same time, we have to teach them to grow thick skin to face the remaining bullies in this world.
The world will not be bullying-free (I don’t think it will happen soon), but at least we can be prepared to face it and keep going. That’s what we get from stories from successful people who faced bullies at some point in their life.
This isn’t addressed at children only. The online community (of adults) can be pretty savage sometimes. We have to learn to let it slide like water off a duck’s back than get the best of us.

Banana Pancakes

My love for pancakes is UNDENIABLE!!!

But I can’t be eating pancakes EVERYDAY. As mentioned before (hello long-time followers of the blog who know of this) pancakes make me feel secure and comfortable. It is a comfort I created for myself after bad times. Not like the pancake plot in the series YOU where it was a comforting reminder of Beck’s father who made them for her as a kid. The best pancakes I’ve had are my own and let that be clear! (no cockiness here)

As I said, it’s not a good idea to have pancakes every day. It’s like dipping bread and sugar munching on it. It’s made worse when paired with high fat high sugar toppings. HELLO NUTELLA (I’m so glad I am not a fan of Nutella, bu t I would scoop Biscoff cookie butter by the spoonful into my mouth). So I had to come up with a trick! Continue reading

  • The habit was to share a photo of me licking something I spilled. But this week I spill some gorgeousness with this hot haircut. What do you think? Delusional? 😂
  • Recently read an article about a Tinder nightmare. That guy who fooled a girl into believing he’s filthy rich only to start asking her for money on the promise that he’d return but he never did. This is some scary shit. No, not the money thing. But being fooled that someone is deeply in love with you only to turn out to be all fake.
    Oh wait… that happens even without a scammer. Damn
  • I am not on tinder…anymore. Or any other app. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have my share of DRAAMMMAAAAA.
    I AM THE DRAMA, mamma!

Tagliatelle al Limone with Jumbo Shrimps

Here we are again. Meeting over a recipe. I’m behind a screen drooling over a dish I prepared some time ago between the past two weeks and five years.

Kidding!

I will be using, though, some recipes I shot in the past few year, and in love with, yet I never shared. But I will try to get this “blogger” thing going by shooting, editing, writing, AND publishing as soon as possible.

I don’t know how they do it.
