That Time I Rode a Roller Coaster on a Cruise Ship...

Guest column: Riding Bolt, the First Roller Coaster on a Cruise Ship

And I also have a video on YouTube! (Watch it now! I mean it! NOW! or don't... that's okay too...)

On my cruise on the Mardi Gras, I was so excited to ride the onboard roller coaster. Until I found out that it cost $15 per person and per ride. I was ready to boycott it due to the price, but decided to do it JUST SO I COULD MAKE YOU A VIDEO AND TELL YOU ABOUT IT... and get to go on it also.

I did actually love it and just wish it was a bit more affordable. Check out my video above and/or ready about it on Cruise Radio.

That Time I Made Pumpkin Pie Parfaits...

For Christmas last year, I decided I wanted to make a dessert with my parfait cups I'd specifically picked out to replace different parfait cups I had that took up too much room in my cabinet... and then never used. I held off on posting this until this fall, because it would be an excellent mini-dessert for Thanksgiving or this Xmas.

And, no. I'm not going to make you scroll past paragraphs and paragraphs of I-don't-even-know-what sprinkled with photos and ads, making your phone practically freeze from all the memory use it takes, till you get to the recipe (I may have a beef with recipe bloggers who do that. They are the worst.)...
