[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!


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!

Gif credits in my profile. :)

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!

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*.
