Mini-Episode: Spiced Rhubarb Jalousies

Totally not created out of spite. Nope. Not a bit.

So, as explained in the video, I had made a video of my making Jalousies, and was waiting for AlphaBakes to get to J. They got to T, and I got cold feet. I submitted the video as Turnovers, and that was a thing. Now 3 months later, they have J. It was suggested that I recut the original episode, but I don't do two takes /Calculon. So I got more pastry & more fancy market jam, and I made them again. 

So yes. AlphaBakes, run by Ros (The More Than Occasional Baker) & Caroline (Caroline Makes).

The letter this month is J. Dagnabbit.


Music Notes:

"Immigrant Song" by Trent Reznor, Karen O & Atticus Ross, from "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack", 2011

I did not see The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, either version. Tanja read the books, but I had no interest. I did, however, see this INCREDIBLE fake trailer for an Ender's Game movie. I was hooked on the song and grabbed it right away from iTunes. As I learned later that week, if you're sprinting after the bus with it playing in your headphones, you feel like you're in a Tony Scott action movie.

And also, Ender's Game was so good of a book that as a teenager I stole it from a kindly English teacher who lent it to me. I did not like the sequels, or the Shadow series, more's the pity.

What about you, oh reader? What work of fiction affected YOU so much that you'd steal it from an educator?

Also I am planning some big changes for the blog in the near future, so stay tuned!
