It’s time to announce the winners for the November Giveaway Hop!

 

Thank you to everyone who entered!  What a popular event!  We wish we could give copies of our books to everyone, but sadly, only two winners this time around :(

 

The winners were:

Iris of Witchmag’s boekenplank

and

Demijel of Breaking Bookshelves

Drop by these blogs and say hi!  Look forward to seeing a review posted maybe?

Audrey here!

It’s Tuesday and time for our weekly study tip!

The tip today is to START.

Many of you have trouble getting started on a project.  You may not be sure that you have everything you need.  You are nervous about the topic and do everything else but that topic.  You may be needing more details,

 

You don’t know anything until you start.

Once you get the job underway, then you can make a list of outstanding questions – maybe your instructions are not clear; you may find that the assignment isn’t as difficult as you thought.  If you leave homework, or an assignment to the last minute and you discover you don’t understand the instructions, you are screwed, so to speak.  If you open your books and START right away, you will leave yourself time to get questions answered, get some extra help from the teacher, etc.

 

So my study tip for today is to START!  Come back next week to see what pearls of wisdom I have for you!

 

Welcome to the November Giveaway Hop!  This hop is sponsored by I Am A Reader Not A Writer and Tristi Pinkston.  This hop is open til Friday November 11th and the winners will be announced shortly after that!

Since this is a giveaway hop, after you enter the giveaway for this blog, find the list at the bottom of this post and wander around to the other 200+ blogs offering giveaways and win some books!

We are giving away 2 e-copies of each of The Sanction Chronicles – Year One Volume One – Welcome to Sanction and Year One Volume 2 – And So It Begins.  This is a serial novel that will span 3 years of time in a paranormal high school in Sanction, NH.  One book is released every month of the school year.

And So It Begins: The Sanction Chronicles Young Adult Series, Year One Volume 2

Blurb:

September in Sanction is one thing, October is a whole new battle of fur, fangs, and magic. Wind Haven High School is getting too crowded now that the Witches have been forced to switch schools by a mysterious fire. The Werewolves are at each others’ throats, and the Vampires have caused enough trouble to bring the Big Bad Hell Hounds to town. When the bodies hit the floor who will be left standing?

Welcome to Audrey’s Study Tips!

 

Audrey here!

Today we are going to talk about the order in which you do your homework or your assignments.

If you are like me, you do Math last :)   Nasty subject!  Usually I would put off Math until I was so tired I would fall asleep on the book.

 

Do you do that?

 

In reality, you should do the assignments or homework from your hardest subjects first! That way you are at your freshest – using your full brain power – doing things you find the hardest.  Another way you can look at this is that you can reward yourself by doing your favorite subject last – finish off on a happy note.

 

Give it some thought – maybe it will work!

Until next week……

The West Coast Werewolf

Tells ALL

The BEST of the Oh, My, God Food Moments

If you have been following my reviews you know that I have been gorging on delicious food in my search to find the best Werewolf eats on the West Coast – of Los Angeles really.

I have been covering food trucks, diners, bakeries, and food trucks and after a month on the food trail there have only been a few Oh My God moments. Followed by some very close highlights.

I have decided to share where I am at starting with a tie for the two items that had me saying those three words again and again.

WINNERS -

The Patty Wagon - Burger, the straight up BEEF

The Cheeseball Wagon – Hot Ham and Cheese Slider

I am not ashamed to say that I am a werewolf and I would hunt these trucks through the streets of Los Angeles shifted and in danger of exposing the entire supernatural community to get my teeth into these two items.

For the Baked Goods – the Sweets – Ice Cream and Cakes 

Winners -

Auntie Em’s Kitchen – Cupcakes

They battled others who specialized in this area and arose victorious while still making kicking food!

CoolHaus – Ice Cream and Ice Cream Sandwiches

The divine has come down to earth in the form of a mix and match ice cream sandwich.

Fresh made Ice Cream that drives around offering 10 flavors of creamy goodness and 5 cookie options. It is too much awesomeness really. PS. Can be found in Some Grocery Stores near YOU!

SO FIND THESE GUYS FOR YOURSELF!

Sophia On Ghosts

Is there something wrong with being a ghost and liking to watch ghost movies. Obviously some are better than others.

Best Ghost Movies:

1. Ghost: A classic and the movie Whoopie Goldburg won her Academy Award for. It is a timeless Hollywood tearjerker that easily gets under one’s skin. I have a soft spot for this one for sure!

2. Poltergeist: What a combo! Tobe Hooper, the director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, teamed up with family-oriented producer Steven Spielberg to make Poltergeist. The film is about a haunted suburban tract home in a development very much like the Arizona one in which Spielberg was raised. It even came out the same summer as Spielberg’s E.T!  Though as frightening as Hooper’s  A Nightmare on Elm Street, Poltergeist is one of the smartest and most entertaining horror pictures. I watch it with the lights on…seriously.

3. Thirteen Ghosts : Cool sets, gory make-up, in a haunted-house chiller. And it has the actor from Monk! 13 Ghosts grows is loud and sometimes silly, getting yucky. It’s just fun, I cover my eyes periodically till some of the movie is over after which I’m just exhausted.

4. Ghostbusters: Bill Murray gets all the best lines and moments in this one. Who you gonna call? Well actually I would prefer you didn’t call anyone.

Worst Ghost Pictures: 

1. Goosebumps–Headless Ghost: The first episode is entitled “The Headless Ghost”. Duane and Stephanie are frequent visitors to Hill House; an old mansion that is rumored to be haunted. During a visit they stumble across the ghost of a young boy who lost his head. Now, he’s come for one of theirs! Zombies wanting brains would be more interesting. Yawn.

2. Ghost World: It has ghost in the title, but there are no ghosts. Don’t be fooled.

3. Ghost Ship: Scary abandoned ship. Totally gross and an interesting take on not being greedy.

4. The Haunting: Be careful of giant fire places, you might loose your head. Houses that come alive to trap you are just dumb.

I did not even find it funny and I like Owen Wilson. I would have been out the door right away, or maybe through a wall.

Welcome to Audrey’s Study Tip

Audrey here!

Each week I try to suggest a tip that might make your studying easier.

I always suggest that students take some time at the end of each week to review what was covered in each subject.

Pick an evening – I suggest Sunday – clear your desk and work on your review.

Have a look at what was covered in each subject.  Go through your notes and make study cards if that is something that works for you.

Make sure that assignments are on a calendar or in your daytimer.  Try to organize your studying as various deadline approach.  Should cut down on last minute cramming!

That’s my pearl of wisdom for this week!  Come back next week for more helpful hints.

Once Upon a Time?

The West Coast Werewolf

Truck Review: The CheeseBall Wagon

I want to preface this by saying I LOVE cheese. So lets get the ball rolling.

I will start with the highlight. The best thing I have had off a truck so far – Hot Ham and Cheese Slider.

HOT HAM AND CHEESE SLIDER: A+

BOOM! Yes that was the most delicious cheesy-salty-garlicy bomb to ever go off on your tongue. Cheese dripping down your face after the first bite, “Oh my God.” Flying out of your mouth in disbelief of the awesomeness.

I don’t particularly even love ham! But they put it on the grill, browning the corners, cheese so hot it melted to liquid dairy gold. A garlic kick and I mourned the lose of the slider in only four bites. It left my wolf tummy ready for four – okay more like 10 – more. I will track you down yummy truck – I will eat your sliders if I have to huff and puff and blow your truck down.

WORLD FAMOUS CHEDDAR CHEESEBALLS: B/B-

Cheddar makes everything- taste like cheddar. So what are these small balls of cheddar like? There is not the stringy gooey-ness of other cheeses. The cheddar gets soft and hot, but eat them fast. After a few minutes they are greasy, breaded chunks of regular old cheese and the cheddar is not sharp enough to have a lot of bite. More a bland variety that will not offend any of the weaker cheesies.

Dipping Sauce: Homemade Ranch – Creamy, Mild, which would be fine if the balls were a powerful punch of flavor. Together this was not my first choice when I could get another slider, but worth a go.

CHEESECAKE CUTIES: C

Cheesecake is a hard one. If you like a sweet cheesecake then the cuties are a decent match. If you like the graham cracker crust the most and the cheese part less, again a good match. For me, too sweet, too much graham cracker, and a little too soft.

Dipping Sauce: truck-made wild maine blueberries simmered and pureed with a pinch of sugar.

Yum, but not being a connoisseur of the fruit sauce in general I suspect I fail to truly appreciate the work that goes into making this so yummy. It tasted like really good jam to me.

Conclusion:

Find them – Eat their food – Spread the word – Be prepared to crave their delicious Hot Ham and Cheese for days and weeks afterward.

Sugar Babies Cupcakery

It may not be manwolf-y or wolfman-y, but I love cupcakes. They are small cakes, tightly packed with delicious goodness, or they should be… 

With that in mind I set out to taste some cupcakes, even if the only size option is mini at places like Sugar Babies Cupcakery. Unfortunately good things coming in small packages did not apply here. The package is small, the baking lazy, and expensive too.

So how does one be a lazy cupcake baker? I was told to come in on a Sat when they had all of their flavors, yum right? A tasty selection right? Nope. My first question was which cupcakes had a different cake. There are a lot of types of cake out there. At which point I was told they only bake two, TWO kinds of cake. Chocolate and Vanilla. There are not different cupcakes there are different frostings!

They have eliminated one of the key components in enhancing flavor and making the experience limited when you try different ones. Lazy. Maybe if the cake had been the most amazing cake ever I would have let it go. No. They were dry, they had little flavor, and though some of the frostings were good they all lacked fillings besides two.

To be fair I went to another cupcake place before writing this review. They are a place that serves food as well as baked goods. They make five, FIVE different cake flavors, Their review is coming next Wednesday.

I may be a werewolf and once a month I do burn a lot of calories, but in between I have been starting to watch my calories a bit. Reviewing food is hard on the waist line. So of the 6 mini cupcakes purchased I did not finish 1. Buy a mix and make your own.

Cupcakes Tasted

Pancakes ‘n’ BaconMoist vanilla cake, maple cream cheese frosting, brown sugar candied bacon.

Grade: C

All My HeartRich chocolate cake, chocolate buttercream frosting, milk chocolate candy heart.

Grade: D – no Heart on top

Mint Chocolate ChipNot listed on the menu – Chocolate Cake  Frosting made with fresh mint.

Grade: D+

The PBJVanilla cake, rich grape preserves filling, sinful peanut butter cream cheese frosting.

Grade: D

Red Rose – Classic red velvet cake, sumptuous cream cheese frosting.

Grade: F – EXACTLY the Chocolate Cake recipe dyed red.

Breakfast at Tiffany’sMoist vanilla cake, sweet vanilla buttercream frosting, candied pearls.

Grade: D – Boring

Conclusion:

It is not worth going into great detail when the final statement is – There are better, cheaper cupcakes all over. The grocery store comes to mind for better cake though Sugar Babies Cupcakery does have better frosting.

The Poutine Truck

 Poutine: Something you might never have heard of unless you have been to Quebec Canada.

I am serious about that. Never heard of the stuff till I saw the truck and thought, GRAVY. I’m a wolf what do you expect!

I got the classic – Frites

It has a whopping three ingredients – Fries – GRAVY – Curd (Cheese)

If you have never heard of the item before then you may be intimidated, it comes out of a truck after all. GO AND EAT IT! Wait, let me match words to ingredients. GO EAT IT!

THE FRIES -

On their own some of the finest I have enjoyed. The square tipped edges and uniform size made the experience consistant from beginning to end. That may not sound like the biggest compliment, but it is. NOTHING is worse then one too big and under cooked, one too small and dried out. Hand Cut and Awesome

Made From Kennebec Potatoes – Didn’t know what those were so I looked them up.

“The Kennebec is a large potato, and it looks very pretty with its light tan skin, nice uniform appearance (it usually doesn’t have large ‘holes’ like many other potatoes), and attractive white fleshy insides. The skin is thin so it peels quickly (and is fine to use even unpeeled), and it’s a nice oval potato so it is more attractive on the plate than some other irregularly-shaped ones.” – Taken from http://www.kennebecpotato.com/ 

- Lets be honest. I love to eat, but never thought of a potato as attractive, even when all dressed up.

THE GRAVY – Homemade  

Thick, rich, the natural meat juices just calling to the tongue. I refrained from licking the last spots of this masterpiece off the cardboard tray, but it was close. I had the classic once again, Veloute made with chicken broth. Yummy feathery little beasts.

THE CURD – Made Locally

Well not too locally to North Hollywood where I found the truck but I like when a place that is using up their carbon footprint traveling around does not make their ingredients travel far.

Plain – Garlic Herb – Fire House

It was recommended to me that the Fire House would stand out against the gravy, but old dogs, new tricks, foolishly did not listen. THERE are NO mistakes cause it is all good. Just a miscalculation. The plain was a fine cheese, it was lost in the gravy, becoming more of an enhancement to the flavor than a stand alone element.

CONCLUSION

This stuff is good! Every element start to finish was a delight to enjoy. Mine may not have had meat, but I was reasonably full after a serving. – Keep in mind, werewolf here – Normal person might be close to exploding and yet unable to put the fork down.

Advice: Stalk them like a deer in the forest, tackle them to the ground if you get close and eat until you are ready to burst.

Laugh with your Scare?

Shaun of the Dead –  2004 – Not to be missed, this thing is Fu-unny. I became a Simon Peg fan right there. - There comes a day in every man’s life when he has to get off the couch…and kill some zombies. When flesh-eating zombies are on the hunt for a bite to eat, it’s up to slacker Shaun (Simon Pegg) and his best pal Ed (Nick Frost) to save their friends and family from becoming the next entrée. Novelist Stephen King gushes Shaun of the Dead is “a 10 on the fun meter and destined to be a cult classic” and Newsweek calls it “a bloody hoot!” It’s a screamingly hilarious zomedy that will have you dying with laughter.

Director: Edgar Wright Writers: Simon Pegg, Edgar Wright

 

 Zombieland - 2009 – The cameo in this film was the bomb. Plus Woody is fan-#&%*ing-tastic!  Nerdy college student Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) has survived the plague that has turned mankind into flesh-devouring zombies because he’s scared of just about everything. Gun-toting, Twinkie-loving Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson) has no fears. Together, they are about to stare down their most horrifying challenge yet: each other’s company. Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin co-star in this double-hitting, head-smashing comedy.

 Director: Ruben Fleischer  Writers: Rhett ReesePaul Wernick

 

My Boyfriends Back - 1993 - Teenager Johnny Dingle will do anything to keep his date with the hottest girl in school — even come back from the grave! You see, Johnny had the perfect scheme to win the heart of Missy McCloud, the town beauty. Unfortunately, Johnny’s scam goes sour and he winds up dead! Even so, Johnny’s determined to keep his date — unaware of the hilarity waiting for him upon his return! See for yourself why everyone’s dying to see this outlandishly funny comedy!

If you want to laugh with your flesh eating films…

 

Cole the Vampire –  Horrific Cinema Lover

Well they aren’t a restaurant…

 Freshly Baked

Gourmet Cookies with Attitude

Okay Readers - 

Best part of this review is you can get these guys ANYWHERE – they ship. So no need to be in LA with me. – Freshly-Baked.com

I came across these guys at the Taco Cook Off – where I managed not to eat a single taco, but other yum stuff instead. Like every cookie on the Freshly Baked menu. Over all, very good. If they are there buy them. On the whole moments of greatness but not every one so choose wisely…

So – top to bottom on the favorites.

YOUR MOM – Oatmeal Coconut Chocolate Chip

The chocolate, the texture of oatmeal and the chewyness of coconut that stays with you as you chew makes this one the big winner. A MUST have and a must try. Perhaps one of my favorite  Oatmeal Cookies ever, but adding chocolate doesn’t hurt.

Kiss my Rosie White… – Strawberry White Chocolate

General Rule: Strawberry flavored items are weaker tasting. Cherry Rules! – Not so here. If this was not hurt your teeth deliciously sweet it would have taken top rank. Even hungry as a wolf I would max out at about 2 while Your Mom, give me 10!

To the Cookie! The flavor is subtle and mouth watering. It hits the tongue with a burst and the white chocolate just smoothes the whole thing out to complete the experience. I am not a white chocolate fan so that this one is so high on the list tells you just how good it is.

Demolicious – Chocolate Cherry

As stated rule above, Cherry Rules as does this cookie. Really fabulous and a repeater. The cherry flavor infuses the whole cookie perfectly complimenting the dark chocolate. The mix is pretty flawless.  Not really anything more to say. Yum…

Mexican Arm Twister – Chocolate Chip with a Twist

If you like KICK this is not the one for you. This is your niece kicking you in the back of the leg. If you want it hot like a donkey kick to the groin look elsewhere. This is a mild, subtle flavor mix maybe why they say twist. Too subtle? Maybe. Can anyone give it a try? Yep. There is nothing to offend the palate, just a warm tingle in the after taste.

Nutty Bavarian Love Biscuit – Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel 

A solid PB cookie, mild on the PB and with a nice move in adding the pretzels. The salty – peanut butter mix of ingredients was nice. Unfortunately the chocolate seemed to dominate the pairing. If PB is your thing though, give it a go.

Monkey Nut Blast – Banana Walnut Chocolate Chip

Sad Monkeys. I didn’t taste the banana either. Say banana, I think BANANA. It was not the dominate flavor I expected based on the description. More of a chocolate chip with nuts and a light banana air about it.

The Foamy Homey – Root Beer Float

This cookie goes to show you how AMAZINGLY talented this baker is. First you taste vanilla, count down, one-two-three and the flavor changes like magic in your mouth. Root Beer! Add to that the unbelievable, no idea how he does it, tingle it leaves on your tongue and this is a masterpiece. I didn’t care for it, but I fully appreciate it.

Anger Management – Peppermint Chocolate Chip

I have been really hungry before – I mean hungry, BUT I have never been tempted to put chocolate chips in toothpaste and eat it.

In closing:  Am I chasing them down like a werewolf after a tasty rabbit? No, but I know other eaters who do. A lot of highlights here and good stuff. Make them into a sandwich with a little ice cream and you would only want them more. – More at Freshly-Baked.com

- West  Coast Werewolf

Okay so lets go with really horrific influences and add the word Nazi.
Yes you heard me right. Films with Nazi Zombies. Some are actually not bad.

Dead Snow - 2009 – I really like this one - A ski vacation turns horrific for a group of medical students, as they find themselves confronted by an unimaginable menace: Nazi zombies.

 

Director: Tommy Wirkola  Writers: Tommy WirkolaStig Frode Henriksen

The Frozen Dead - 1967 - A crazed scientist keeps the heads of Nazi war criminals alive until he can find appropriate bodies on which to attach them so he can revive the Third Reich.

 

Director: Herbert J. Leder   Writer: Herbert J. Leder

Shock Waves - 1977 - A crazed scientist keeps the heads of Nazi war criminals alive until he can find appropriate bodies on which to attach them so he can revive the Third Reich.
