Has it really been nearly a year since my last update?
Why has it been so long? Well… reasons… Just over one year ago, I chose to continue my education. Twenty-two years after my high school graduation, I decided to go back to school. Insane, yes? In brief, yes.
Full time schooling has taken more out of me than I expected, but I regret not a moment of it. My chosen field is psychology with a focus on alternative lifestyles and non-standard sexuality. My own experiences as a member of a few of the fringe communities both locally and online has given me a greater appreciation for how difficult it can be to find a therapist who does not require a Kink-to-English language course. The decision to pursue an education in psychology and sexuality is based upon my desire to help those who struggle with every day concerns and who happen to be a bit… different… from the average Joe or Jane.
This being said, I am still cooking, though not as often as I would prefer. But with the holidays coming up, I can feel the itch starting in the back of my mind: With what should I inject the turkey this year? Smoked oysters in the stuffing? (Oh hell yes!) Boubon caramel glazed sweet potatoes? Pumpkin cheesecake, apple galettes, and Grandma’s orange dinner rolls pluming in the oven? *sigh* The possibilities are endless!
So to tide you over, give this recipe a try. Your house will smell delightful, and your stomach will love you forever.
