You Had Me At Coconut Cream

I used to bake a lot of pies. I have a crummy oven now, so I rarely make them any more, but I always loved making my own pie crust, then filling it with something yummy. Toasted coconut flakes atop a pale vanilla custard, brimming with more of those delicious morsels – no meringue – in a buttery, flaky pastry shell. I can taste it now, if I close my eyes and shut my mouth (to prevent drooling down my chin).

I was so excited to see the latest release from {what next} for Collabor88. The “Patisserie” Kitchen Decor set is a baker’s delight. As usual, each item comes with texture-change options and unbelievably, each one weighs in at only one Land Impact each. I remember the days when a single table setting gobbled up 20 or more prims. With this set you can get your bake on with the full set for a grand total of only five LI!

If you need a place to display all of these goodies, head over to the Kuro main store for this pretty and practical kitchen. The timing couldn’t be better.

I may just whip up a batch of pie crust later. Writing about coconut cream pie is causing my tummy to growl. More likely, though, I’ll just see how well my memories satisfy my craving…then head to the bakery for a second-rate version I can critique with the hauteur of true Baking Queen.

Christmas Comfy

1-christmas-comfy-sm

This is that moment everyone dreams of during the Christmas holidays; when all of the gifts are wrapped, all of the decorations are up, the house is clean, the groceries are tucked away in the kitchen until Christmas morning. This is the moment when you just flop down in your most comfy jammies and breathe a sigh of contentment.

While technically not jammies, the Willow Jumpsuit from *Just BECAUSE* is definitely comfy. And cute. And perfect for the holidays! This version, which comes with four holiday textures, is the the group gift from Annie for Christmas. Everyone loves getting presents at Christmas and this is simply a wonderful bonus from one of Second Life’s best designers.

Give yourself a gift by joining the *Just BECAUSE* group. If you’re already a member, you can just kick back and enjoy your Christmas, comfy style.
