Candice’s Kitchen – Banana Bread

Candice here, taking over for the week! Okay, so while this feature was not necessarily enjoyed in the ambiance of an exquisite restaurant or cafe, we thought we would take a moment to share it on the blog because it looked just too picture perfect. Fine...maybe I thought this maybe a tad more than Chris...... Continue Reading →

Rejection

Ahhh, Rejection. Such a negative word. So negative that we devise many ways throughout life to not say it, even more ways to not feel it. "It's not you, it's me." "I'm just at a different part of my life." "We've decided to go in a different direction." Yes, I thought I heard it all...... Continue Reading →

The Taste Test – Bliss Kitchen

If someone were to ask you about what comes to mind when picturing a burger, what Image pops into your head first? Something on the grill, in a restaurant, or handed over to you in a drive through?

Point of View – Unreliable Narrator

Are you into thrillers? Stories where someone is taken hostage, a stalker ups his game, or a private eye takes on more than they bargained for? This genre is very popular, and its also where you'll most likely run into an 'Unreliable Narrator.' Basically, an unreliable narrator is someone whose storytelling credibility has been called...

Forgiveness

This one has been on my to-do list for quite some time so I might as well get to it for this week! While less to do with writing and more to do with just being human, hopefully you'll still find it interesting. Anyone who is around on this planet long enough will eventually have...
