Blog Hop and Follow Friday!!!!

Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by our dearest friend at Parajunkee's View

And this weeks questions is:

What do you do besides reading / reviewing as a hobby??

Well... I love to cook and bake.
I also like to be creative, especially during this time of the year... an example is, I've got 2 nephews and 2 nieces who are all under the age of 7, and this year I hand painted T-Shirts for them with their own 'branding' on it, and for two of my cousins I made White Kitchen writing boards with a personal touch to it.

With the cooking, I love cooking without a recipe, but with baking I follow it to the T!

Tell me what your hobbies are????
I'd love to find out...

Now to the Book Blogger Hop!!!!

This weekly meme lasts from Friday to Monday and is hosted by our awesome friend at Crazy For Books

This weeks question that is being asked is:

"What very popular and hyped book in the blogosphere did you NOT enjoy and how did you feel about posting your review?"

Well, Before I fall by Lauren Oliver. I did enjoy the book but it didn't live up to that major hype everyone was going about.
I must admit that I didnt do a review about it because generally I'm not the best reviewer, but when I do a review I try to be as honest as possible...

So go ahead and answer the question, also be sure to enter you linky at the host site!!!

I LOVE baking too, I just made banana chocolate chip muffins this week that were delicious. I need to find some healthier but tasty recipes though so I can do it even more often.

I agree with you on the baking the first few times I tried to bake and not follow the recipe, the results were absolutely disastrous heh~~ Something about baking just needs more science and only with time can there be art I guess.

Stopping by from the hop to say hi ^^

Thanks for hopping by my blog! Actually, I have to agree with you on Before I Fall - I enjoyed the book until I reached the ending, then I was really disappointed! I just don't think I 'got' why it had to be that way.

Hope you have a great weekend :)

I can't bake :-(! But I love to eat anything that's baked! Hehe! Happy Friday!

Niecole said...

Sonette, I'm a food junky!
No wonder I struggle to loose weight... (not that I'm fat :))
I love biscuits and rusks with coffee, I love cheesecake and yummy chocolate cake, I just cant help myself!

Hi there! New follower hopping through :) Have a great weekend!

Susan said...

I love to bake, too, but I HAVE to follow a recipe. I just don't have the knack for throwing in this and that and making it taste good :)

So glad to have found you via the Hop!

Niecole said...

Hey Susan!
I'm way to scared to bake without the recipe. The one time I did that (adding a bit more of one thing to substitute another) I ended up with very small but very HIGH biscuits... the puffed up like balloons

Lu said...

Lekker naweek vriendin!

Alison said...

Hopping through. Painting T-shirts sounds fun. And I love cooking and baking.

My tastes are so eclectic I'm not usually reading popular fiction while it's still popular. You can my full answer here. Happy Blog Hop.

The Shrinking Violet said...

Hey Niecole!
I'm just like you; when it comes to cooking I just throw in random things that taste good but when it comes to baking, I triple check the recipe.
Have a great weekend!

Hi Niecole - I don't like to cook or bake, so besides reading and reviewing, I like to travel, go to the theater (Broadway-type Columbus, OH!), watch TV and movies and I'm trying my hand at writing a novel.

I'm a fan of your site. Come at visit me at

GREYZ said...

Reviews should remain honest regardless of what is written and how it sounds like and this just shows that loving or liking a book really depends on a person preference and type. that's why we have a wider range of genres and authors to choose from.

Dropping by via the hop. I would love to see you over at Clandestine Sanctuary and read my answer to this question. I am an old follower.

Have a great weekend!
