Busy working on Black Friday specials! Just finished making 7 “Kadan” whipped soaps. It’s got a hot chocolate scented creamy base and topped with super whipped marshmallow/cream scented soap, then dusted with cinnamon and cocoa and finished with a real cinnamon stick!

If you or anyone you know love The Iron Bull be sure to check this listing out on Black Friday! The sale goes live at midnight EST on 11/24 until I sell out. 8oz of this goodness for $15!




If you only knew how easy it was to make your own real stuff, you’d never buy that mystery-substance commercial crap again.  So here goes:

See this thing?  It’s called a pastry blender.  Some have plastic handles or are solid on the sides.  No matter.  They’re under $5 at a big box store and they’re ONE of the specialty kitchen items worth owning.  Get one. Love it.  Pass it down to your grandkids.

Easy as Pie Crust

  • 1 cup of flour (if you’re GF, don’t worry. Use the flour of your choice. You’ll just have to press the crust into place instead of roll it out and transer it)
  • 1/3 cup of grease of some kind.  Shortening makes a good pie crust.  So does leftover bacon grease, lard, butter, even oil.  Different fats for different tastes.
  • 1 teaspoon of salt.  This will keep your pie crust from tasting flat.
  • ¼ cup ice cold water (not yet though)

Put the flour, salt, and grease in a bowl.  cut the greast into the flour with a down and over motion with a pastry blender, or hold 2 table knives together  and cut, cut, cut into the bowl untl it looks like small peas, rice, or really coarse grain.
Add the ice water and stir with a fork until it *just* holds together.
Roll dough out on a floured countertop with a rolling pin, or a 2-liter bottle filled with water. Roll in every direction from the center until crust is about 1/8″ (2-3cm) thick.
Fold crust lightly in half.  Place it in a pie tin with the point at the center of the pan.  unfold it. Trim edges 1/2″ wider than the pie tin.  Moisten the edge with a finger dipped in water, fold the extra in, and pinch it all around.  

TADA!! Pie crust that tastes better than anything you can buy at the store.  Seriously you will be ruined for life for those terrible, crumbly, store-bought pie crusts.


All the creamy high-fat sweet goodness without the undentifiable-to-your-body plasticity.

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • 3 T sugar

Put your bowl and beaters in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Put the whipping cream in the bowl and begin to beat it on a medium-low speed.  Too fast and you’ll make butter (not kidding).  
As you beat the cream, add the sugar a little shake at a time.  
Turn the speed up a little and beat until soft or stiff peaks form (be aware that whipped cream will stiffen more as it is spread or served, which may cause it to be too stiff or separate if you overbeat it)

That’s all folks.

Have a happy and better-tasting and better-for-you Thanksgiving

Why the Jungkook GCF Tokyo video is important !

🔹 The fact that Junkook used this Troye Sivan song. It’s no secret Kook loves Troye, but he loves this song SO MUCH that he used it despite copyright claims. He could have chosen any song, any of their own songs for no copyright, but he chose this song and as a result, the video is not monetized. Meaning they’re not making money from it. Jungkook uploaded the vid solely because HE wanted to, not to get money at all

🔹 He filmed, directed, and edited this amazing video because he just loves Jimin so much. He spent all that time for Jimin alone when he didn’t even give the other members birthday presents. He treats JM differently, he clearly cares a lot for JM whether as just friends or lovers.

🔹 The video is all Jimin from Jungkooks perspective. Every scene had something to do with Jimin, he barely even showed himself. It was the literal definition of “he thought the view was pretty but I thought he was prETTIER” jk is whipped. When you love someone, it doesn’t matter where you are as long as you’re with them. This was JM through JK’s eyes.

🔹 The fact that SO MANY comments were saying they feel like they’re on a date with Jimin.

What does that make Jungkook then??? All these fans who can see the romance in the air but like to put it on themselves since they wanna be with Jimin is fine, but it showed the video was extremely date-like, as if Jungkook himself was on a date with Jimin. If jungkook treated a girl like that, everyone would lose their minds. But since it’s a guy, it’s just a friendship.

🔹 People even have the audacity to say JK made the vid so army could have a dating sim with JM??? Are you fucking kidding me? JK made the vid for HIMSELF. That’s why he used copyright music. If he was doing it for fans, he would have used their own music to make profit and he would have told Jimin about it

🔹 Since Jimin DID NOT KNOW JK was gonna post the video. He said he would have acted differently. If the video were a “dating simulator” Jimin would have been his stage persona but he was real, raw, and as pure as we will ever see him. It was the real JM that only JK gets to see. And he was so happy. He was truly happy with JK at his side.

🔹 Dreams do come true, kids. JM since 2013 wanted to go on a vacation with JK, just by themselves if they ever had time and they finally were able to, in the happiest place on earth. I don’t care if jikook is real and I don’t know but it’s obvious that they definitely love each other, romantically or platonically.
