Seedstock Beer and Cookie Pairing!

This week!!! Don’t have anything to do on Wednesday?! Then you have to come to the beer and cookie pairing at Seedstock Brewery. This brewery has been open for a short period of time, but they’re pumping out the beers and making a good name for themselves.

Which is why I’m super excited to have a beer and cookie pairing there!

If you pay attention to me on social media at all you are already aware that Good Sugar Baking’s Kickstarter has been funded!!! What a great time that was. I’m so pumped to get this all going, especially after such an amazing weekend!

I actually found out my project was funded as I was walking out the door to go get on a plane to Memphis. Now try and tell me what makes for a better start of a trip than finding out something you’ve been busting your butt with has been funded!

So I got to Memphis, met up with two of my very best friends, and the rest is history. Or as someone did tell us, “Memphis is like Vegas. What happens in Memphis stays in Memphis.” But really, between going to the zoo, seeing my favorite band, eating amazing food, drinking amazing drinks (not really, it’s all just Beale St Big Ass Beers and whiskey) and spending time being irresponsible before I have to be SUPER responsible…I kind of don’t really want to get to work because of how much fun I had.

But I’m doing it.

And it’s all YOUR FAULT.

Thank you. I can’t wait to put together everyone’s Kickstarter rewards!

Baking to Music!

One of the reasons I love baking is because I get to listen to whatever music I want to listen to (and maybe dance a little while I bake). Music is a great source of comfort for a lot of people and with the wide variety of genres, it’s easy to find something you enjoy listening to.¬†Here are my top 10 for baking:

  1. Anything by The Menzingers
  2. Anything by Social Distortion
  3. Anything by Lucero
  4. Say Anything – Do Better
  5. Against Me! – Teenage Anarchist
  6. Panic! At The Disco – Folkin’ Around
  7. Nathaniel Rateliff and The Night Sweats – S.O.B.
  8. Starship – We Built This City
  9. Dexys Midnight Runners – Come On Eileen
  10. Daryl Hall and John Oats – You Make My Dreams

When you’re doing your favorite hobby, whether it’s baking, writing, reading, skateboarding or whatever else, what do you constantly find yourself listening to? If you haven’t listened to any of those bands (or songs), I highly suggest you do it right now!!
