[personal profile] celtprincess13 managed to hook me up with the shirtless!Sam gifs that I wanted needed! \o/
So, I've added them to my sidebar & like to think that these three tell a little story... ;)

Sam's working out & sees Dean watching him...


Sam's all 'like what you see? Strip!'


Dean doesn't have to be told twice!


*g*

I've had some lovely responses to my 1920's AU McShep art, 'World, far away', &, as I'd mentioned that I felt it could easily be viewed as Lord John & Rodney from my Big Bang story 'Time & Tide', it's been lovely to have a few comments to that, too!
I love the idea that people are coming new to something that I wrote quite a while ago. :)

In completely different news, with the installation of a new window blind our kitchen renovation is finally complete! \o/
It's a whole new kitchen (everything was ripped out) & I absolutely love it!  (I'll take some pics to share when I get a second.)  It's a fairly small area (no room for seating but it does lead into the dining room through an open doorway, so that's not a problem) but the new layout has given me so much more storage space!  I actually have empty shelves! LOL  Although, I've rediscovered my love for baking (after a break of over 15 years) & so I doubt they'll stay empty for long with all the supplies I'm buying. *g*

I'm finding the baking very therapeutic for my depression, funnily enough.
I'm concentrating on fairly straightforward stuff like muffins for now, but I'm loving baking them from scratch, & the measuring, sifting & mixing is weirdly soothing. :)

My lovely [personal profile] xanthe  gave me her recipe for the gorgeous pear & ginger muffins that I always love (& scoff!) when I stay with her, & I'm really pleased at how they've turned out. (Although the first batch was a bit iffy.  Turned out my oven wasn't quite at the temp it said it was - thank goodness for an oven thermometer!)
I'm also planning to try out some raspberry & lemon muffins, & some carrot & pineapple wholemeal muffins.  The recipes sound very scrumptious.
If anyone has any favourite muffin recipes - please do share! :)

Happy Thursday, all!
*hugs*

I like to bake but from a mix. I also bake bread from a mix and in a machine but according to my husband it comes out well.

Are you in the UK?

Who's the dancing red-headed woman on your sidebar?

ooooooooo, muffins :) I can't look at a muffin without thinking of John and Rodney:) There are so many fics where muffins are involved in some way or another. We should have a muffin fic rec list! LOL

I'm afraid I don't have a proper recipe, but my favorite muffins are made with bananas and dark chocolate chips :) Yum!

May there be plenty of chocolatey goodness in your future! And a morsel or two for Buddy (if it's good for him...)

Yay Kitchen-Re-Do! \o/ Can't wait to see what it looks like. My sister made a batch of muffins from this recipe at New Year's Brunch a few years ago and it is my favorite!

http://www.simplebites.net/how-to-make-the-best-muffins/

It offers a variety of flavor combinations. My favorite is dried strawberry/cranberry and chocolate chip. I use a little butter and a cup of apple sauce. It requires more baking time with this substitution but is very yummee. :D

WOOT! Muffins! LOL! The oven thermometer seems to have sorted everything out. All ovens are a bit different I think, so now you've fathomed what's going on with yours I suspect Mr B will be coming home to delicious home baked goodies a LOT *g*.
