Welcome to Brown Eyed Baker Unplugged

Since 2007 I have been blogging about everything and anything food. Mostly desserts, because I love few things more than a creamy piece of cheesecake or a rich square of chocolate. I started a Saturday series on Brown Eyed Baker where I would ramble on about random life and sports, but I found myself wishing I could update it much more frequently than only once a week. So, I figured why not add another blog so I could do just that! Over here on Unplugged I share life outside of the kitchen with you. Random musings. Rants. Music. Books. Travels. My dog. Holidays. It’s me, outside of the kitchen. Pretty much anything you can think of.

In putting together this site, I came up with two bucket lists of sorts that I thought you might enjoy checking out (also accessible from the top navigation bar):

My 100: Books. In the My 100 list on Brown Eyed Baker, I list 100 of the recipes I hope to someday conquer. In the Books version of the list over here on Unplugged, it’s a list 100 of the books I want to read, hopefully working through at least one a month. Check it out and feel free to share your book recommendations!

Day Zero. 101 things I want to do in the next 1001 days. A short-term bucket list, with a massive variety of things I want to do, places I want to go, goals I want to accomplish, and things I want to learn. I look forward to sharing my adventures with you!

Me: The Basics

These are a few of my favorite things (a la The Sound of Music):

♥ Hockey. Specifically the Pittsburgh Penguins.
♥ Football. Specifically the Pittsburgh Steelers. And fantasy football.
♥ Reading.
♥ Eating pizza. Especially while watching hockey and football games.
♥ Crossword puzzles.
♥ Watching a movie and eating popcorn at home.
♥ Rainy days.
♥ Playing video games.
♥ Thunderstorms.
♥ Snow. Blizzards are even better!
♥ Christmas.
♥ Board games.
♥ Live music.
