Easy Coffee Cake Recipes on Sale Now! | December 20, 2015 | 12:05 PM
My most recent audibook, “Easy Coffee Cake Recipes,” is available for purchase! This book was a lot of fun to record, and I got really hungry any time I worked on it. There are fifteen recipes total, and they all sounded so delicious that I couldn’t wait to try them. This book had cakes that are perfect to go with your morning coffee or to eat as an afternoon snack, as well as ones that would be an amazing dessert to finish off your day.
Yesterday I decided to try the Chocolate Bundt Cake recipe, and I was not disappointed!
Having a cookbook in audiobook form is a great idea, because it is completely hands-free. You can put the audiobook on your smartphone, your mp3 player, your e-reader, or you can have it playing on your computer on the kitchen table while you bake! This way you won’t get your book or e-reader covered with batter or flour while making your cake.
I have a tip for removing the cake from the bundt pan that my grandmother showed me. Take a butter knife and wedge it between the cake and the pan, sawing all around the cake. Every inch or so, pull the butter knife gently towards yourself. Then simply place a plate below the pan and turn the cake over.
After sprinkling with powdered sugar, our cake is done! And I guarantee it is every bit as delicious as the pictures make it look.
“Easy Coffee Cake Recipes” by Sarah Sophia is now available from these fine retailers:

My newest audiobook: Vampire Classmates! | March 26, 2015 | 10:24 AM
Hello, everyone! Here is an update on what I have been up to:
I made fake blood and a label for the bottle:
The blood was a hard thing for me to do, since I am so squeamish it is not even funny. I knew that it was just corn syrup, chocolate sauce, coffee, red food coloring, cocoa powder, etc, but it made me feel faint.
It kept not looking right, but then suddenly I felt a sick light-headed feeling, and I knew I’d gotten it right.
Grossest part of all? Thanks to the brewed coffee...it was warm.
But it had the desired look and effect for my video, so I am proud of myself.
Now go watch the video, and make sure to buy a copy of Vampire Classmates!
Aches and Pains in the Winter | January 17, 2015 | 8:13 PM
While I love winter weather, I find that I tend to ache more during these months. Whether it be rheumatism or early arthritis, I notice that my hands (which are weird in their own way and ache really badly if I use them too much–particularly on the computer or lifting heavy things) hurt a lot more in the cold, rainy weather. If anyone is like me, here are some things that I find help me a lot.
This helps my case in particular because the “fatty pads” of my hands (right where the wrist meets the palm) don’t have the little groove down the middle that most people’s have, so the blood does not pump as easily, and the muscles get very tired more quickly than normal. My chiropractor recommended Kinesio Tex tape, because it supports the area without constricting it. This tape can be used on your back, neck, ankles, knees, feet, pretty much anywhere to help support and rejuvenate the areas that ache most. My sister used it when she twisted her ankle, and it really helped support the ankle and speed along the healing process! Fun fact: it also comes in several fun colors!
–Massaging body bars
I got some of these for Christmas! Calgon is a brand that specializes in spa products. These bath bars are wonderful because they have raised bumps that massage your skin, while the soothing ingredients also help moisturize and exfoliate. I particularly like to use these in the bath, but they are also great in the shower! They come in lots of great scents, too. There are also lots of brands that offer this kind of product, so hunt around until you find one you like best.
Which leads to my last recommendation...
This can be the shower, a hot bubble bath, or (if you are lucky) a hot tub! We had a hot tub in my old house. Ah, how I miss it. If you are ever feeling achey, don’t hesitate to take advantage of some warm water!
I hope some of these tips help those who feel aches and pains in the cold winter months. And remember, if you are injured or experiencing constant pain, see a chiropractor! You would not believe the wonders they can do for feet, knees, hips, backs, necks, even hands!
Be well, everyone! 1 2 3 4 5 Older >>
