Fudge Cupcake Murder | Joanne Fluke

Nice quick read and it took me awhile to figure out the killer.

I didn‘t forget you, @4thhouseontheleft I swear! 😊 Here is most of my salt-based Christmas from @brandybear22 😍 She‘s also taking me to the local salt cellar for a couples salt-air breathing treatment 😂

Christmas Cake Murder | Joanne Fluke

This was a flashback one with a flashback in story form while they plan a Christmas ball. It‘s weird it‘s just on the middle of the series. It should have been a prequel.

Oof audiobooking and working out. Can‘t wait for the weekend- I‘ve hit my people quotient for the week 😂 We‘re going up north to ice fish this weekend away from the world. This also means I get to spend all night reading too. Come on Saturday!

Avanders Lol your water bottle 😂 And enjoy the weekend!! 2d
BethM @Avanders it summarizes my personality well 😂 2d
Avanders 😂 I think it‘s important to be clear about these things 😂 (I have this mug at work that I only bring out in protected, limited circumstances, but I love it: https://www.amazon.com/Salty-Bitch-Ounces-Coffee-Willcallyou/dp/B01DV73ADW ) 14h

My first time overcoming my anxiety about baking in my new(ish) flat! I hate shared kitchens, I‘m not sure why, and it‘s so hard making myself cook. I‘m lucky my boyfriend doesn‘t mind cooking for me as I do all the laundry but I really hope this one going so well will mean I feel able to do it more in future. It‘s a practice for his grandads birthday cake at the weekend.

I‘ve finished my first complete read through, but I will be coming back to this book often in 2020! I have already begun to use what I learn to enhance all of our meals.

Would anyone be interested in me sharing some of the meals I prepare using the tips, techniques and recipes in Samin‘s book? It definitely has a new, prized place on my cookbook shelf! 👩‍🍳

Jerusalem: A Cookbook | Yotam Ottolenghi, Sami Tamimi
post image

I've made four recipes out of this book over the last two days and they all came out great. Some ingredients are listed by lb/oz, which can be annoying, but overall a great #cookbookclub read.


I don‘t like the vehicular homicide story arch. This one is partially in Vegas, and I didn‘t enjoy that part as much.

When dinner happens to coincide with the section of the cook book I am currently reading! Hubby picked dinner tonight:

Him: We‘re having Irish Stew
Me: Yay! I just read about the correct way to brown meats and make stew. We‘ve been doing it all wrong.
Him: Ok
Me: You‘re doing it incorrectly right NOW
Him: Do you want to make dinner tonight?
Me: 🤐🤣

ljuliel Doggone ! You‘re married to someone who cooks ? If my husband made supper, we‘d have pop tarts. 1w
Nebklvr Bless your hubby. Sounds like you two have a good time! 1w
4thhouseontheleft @ljuliel 🤣🤣 Yep! We share all household duties. And we each have dishes that we make better than the other. He does lamb, beef, seafood and pork really well. I make the vegetarian, chicken, soups, curries, international dishes, and one pot meals. And eggs. He does not do eggs well. 😁 1w

eanderson 🤣 This sounds like a conversation in my house. 1w
4thhouseontheleft @Nebklvr We do. 🥰 @eanderson 🤣🤣 1w
ljuliel That is NIFTY. When the Hubster retires ,we will split all the household chores 50/50 .I‘m not sure 🤔 how they will be designated yet, but if he gets to retire, so do I. I highly doubt he will cook . In 42.5 years, he has made himself hotdogs once. He waited for the water to boil before placing them in the pan. He made Mac and cheese once and put the macaroni into cold water, THEN sat it on the stove to cook. CRUNCHY. He can have dishes.I‘ll cook 1w
Crazeedi @ljuliel my hubby would cook if I let him, but I would have a big mess to clean up so I do the cooking, unless I'm sick. 🙄 1w
4thhouseontheleft @ljuliel sounds like he needs to sign up for a cooking class. 😄 Don‘t be an enabler! 😇 It‘s not rocket science. When my mom was diagnosed with BC and started treatment 2 yrs ago, I had a come to Jesus moment with my dad. Told him he HAD to learn some basic cooking skills, or else. He did. 😄 1w
ljuliel @Crazeedi Well, I‘ll give him a gold star for trying. 🌟. You should tell him whoever cooks also does dishes ! 1w
ljuliel I‘ve already told him ANYONE can cook. Especially in today‘s world. Directions are on everything ! Even frozen pizzas say : remove plastic before placing in oven. Do not eat before cooking. . *I have yet to meet anyone who would start gnawing on a frozen pizza straight out of the freezer * 1w
Crazeedi @ljuliel have you seen his attempts to "clean up" the kitchen? I have and it's not pretty! Lol 1w
ljuliel And good for you for giving your dad a talking-to about helping out ! ♥️ 1w
Crazeedi @ljuliel I have to say when I dont feel like cooking hes fine with finding something to eat! 1w
ljuliel @Crazeedi Gosh, it must be bad. I‘m wondering how he makes a worse mess by washing dishes. Does he flood the kitchen sink ? 1w
ljuliel @Crazeedi My husband has said that a few times, but then he either doesn‘t eat , or he eats a sack of pretzels. 😱 1w
Crazeedi @ljuliel he just doesn't see everything to wipe up! But I appreciate that hes willing to feed himself!! 1w
4thhouseontheleft @ljuliel honestly, he didn‘t have a choice. I live 9 hrs away. It was either step up, or step out. 💪🏼 1w
ljuliel Yes, we‘ll give him a gold star for that 🌟 @crazeedi 1w
ljuliel @4thhouseontheleft That‘s great that you‘re such a good daughter. Most couples our age ( 60s) , that I know of, the Little Woman is still the housewife, while the man is a bit like Archie Bunker. Comes home, sits down, and waits for supper. My husband isn‘t that crabby ( in fact, I‘m more like Archie 🤨) , but I‘m a combo Archie and Edith. Although I can sit wherever I want and don‘t allow him to boss me around . I DO sing like Edith. 1w
