Cherry Chocolate Brownie Cupcakes, BDTK/Chocolate Moosey and Foodie Penpal


Hi folks. I took a hiatus from Burning Down The Kitchen recently. After the vacation of doom I just was not up to doing them. Plus I'm not going to lie, I've had a couple of interviews get forgotten about by the interviewee. So for a while there I was questioning whether I wanted to continue doing these interviews. But I'll be darned if I'm going to let someone else control my world. Yes they are a lot of work to organize but for me the payoff is awesome. I get to know other bloggers so much … [Read more...]

Zesty Hamburger Soup | #SlowCookerSaturdays

Slow Cooker Hamburger Soup | Cravings of a Lunatic | #slowcooker #soup #dinner

Slow Cooker Zesty Hamburger Soup that is super easy to make, and packs a ton of flavour. Perfect for a busy day where you want to set it and forget it! Hi folks. Okay I'm going to be honest with you all. I hesitated to post this. It's so hard to take good photos of soup. So I was unsure this was blog worthy. After much (okay that's a lie, let's say a little) discussion on Facebook with some readers and fellow bloggers I decided to pop this up here. You may be saying "but why Lunie, the … [Read more...]

September Foodie Penpal

Foodie Penpal September 1

Hi folks. Another month has passed and I cannot believe it is already October. September seemed to fly by. Mostly because I was medicated to the hilt and slept through most of it. So it seemed to disappear. Apparently that's what drug induced sleep does to your life. The upside is I'm well rested. And all caught up on the Real Housewives of New Jersey and New York. The perks of being bed-ridden for a while. I love being part of the foodie penpal group. … [Read more...]
