Nerds Gotta Eat: Sassy Pumpkin Muffins

Happy Thanksgiving, Fangirls! Today I’d like to give thanks for my amazing family, phenomenal friends, and rad as heck boyfriend. A little while back, I had the pleasure of meeting said boyfriend’s parents, and I got super freaked out because first impressions are so important, and I can never visit someone empty handed. My go-to for first visit gifts tends to be food, but his mother is gluten free, and he is allergic to everything under the sun! I originally tried making gluten free Pizzelles, but that was a disaster and a half, so I went to Lauren Lopez’s These Treats Don’t Suck. In it, Ms Lopez writes about how she has a princess tummy that doesn’t like gluten or dairy, so I figured it may be a good place to start. I was incredibly right. Lopez had a ton of recipes in there, but most had chocolate or nuts (allergy king would not be able to eat those). Luckily, there is a recipe for Sassy Pumpkin Muffins that was free of nuts, chocolate, and gluten (heck, there’s no dairy either)!

Starkid Takes Manhattan

Hey Fangirls!  Last week was the fifth anniversary of Team Starkid’s A Very Potter Musical.  To me, that’s ridiculous.  Team Starkid is my second longest running fandom (after Harry Potter), so when they announced a concert to be performed the weekend after their anniversary, I lost my mind.  Of course we’d have to go; it was a necessity. So we prepare, and went!

A Starkid Spectacular: Twisted In Concert!

Hello you lovely Starkid Fangirls! “What?! You’re not Emily or one of the other usual writers?! Who is this biddy?” Well, Fangirl, let me quickly introduce myself. My name is Kristen, otherwise known on the interwebz as “Shut Up Kristen!” I’m a 21 year old Content Creator on the YouTubez, a master at the 140 character genre, and a nerd with a tumblr. So basically- your average Fangirl. But enough about me! Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and talk about the fabulous Starkid event I attended this week at 54 Below in NYC: Twisted in concert.
