Some Cool Things

Some cool things....

First, my friend's band just released their album on itunes! Check them out, they are great. They are called Sea Fever and their album is called Go Find Your Love. You can also check out their myspace page.

Next, is another band I found called Castle Lights. They have a five song EP out right now and I can't wait for more. My favorite song of theirs is called Maze of Love. So great, you should definitely check it out as well.

Yesterday, I went to Bubblecakes in Roanoke. It's another one of those trendy cupcake places that sells overpriced cupcakes that aren't very good. At least that is what I was expecting. Instead, I found something completely different. The place is so cute, but most important, the cupcakes they sell are to die for! They are amazingly delicious. I had the Tiffany cupcake which is vanilla cake with almond icing and a Brownie Souffle, which is basically a cupcake brownie....yum. Need I say more. So if you are ever in Roanoke, check it out.

Now, I am going to make an apple pie. Still have yet to find an amazing recipe for that. If anyone has any suggestions, let me know.

The one I am trying today uses these ingredients:
1 1/2 pounds Granny Smith apples (about 3 medium)
2 pounds McIntosh apples (about 4 large)
1 tablespoon juice and 1 teaspoon zest from 1 lemon
3/4 cups (5.25 ounces) plus 1 tablespoon sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 egg white, beaten lightly

You'll find out how this went next time!

A cool gift idea. I am obsessed with this. I hope that my dad and my brother don't read my blog because I want to get this for them. I saw this and thought it was so cool and its great because you can just buy a ton of them and give them to every guy that you know. It's called, "The Beer Stick."

Lastly, but not least(y), a cool picture.
