Update

Sorry the blog has been a bit sparse lately. Katie has been doing an amazing job updating it while Ive been more or less MIA the past week or so. I just wanted to pop in and say hi and let you know why Ive been a ghost, first work has been super slammed but thankfully thats more or less lightening up. Also I went on a brief vacation last week and was totally unwired the whole time. Finally Ive been preoccupied with extra stuff at work thanks to some wonderful news. As many of you know, I work for Current TV and current.com. Almost 5 months ago two of my coworkers Laura Ling and Euna Lee were taken captive by North Korea and later sentenced to 12 years hard labor. Well as Im sure youve heard, last week with the help of Bill Clinton, Al Gore (our boss) and many many other people they were granted amnesty and came home. Our office has been overwhelmed with joy and relief as out colleagues and friends are finally back with their loved ones. So, we’ve been busy welcoming them back and setting up tributes to them so my department as well has been slammed. But hey, when its something so wonderful you dont mind working extra!

So thats it, just wanted to give an update and say that I’ll be back in full swing with my posting AND I got a new camera so I can finally start uploading pictures of all my dishes and crafts! Hurray!

Welcome! Would you like some tea?

So its high time I start a blog thats been swirling in my head for a while…Domestic Geek. A blog that serves to prove that you can be a tech savvy hardworking woman (or man) who also loves to knit yoga bags and cook curry. In recent years the word “domestic” has taken on a bad connotation and I want to take back that word as something chic and practical (I wont go into a long rant here and now, Im sure you get the gist). Here you’ll find everything from recipes, to patterns, to tips and links to all around cool domestic geekery. So with a Irish Tea in hand (trust me this aint your grandma’s tea…or maybe it is if shes a lush) I crisen this blog!

Oh and how rude of me, of course I must leave you with a quick recipe on how to make Irish Tea.  I have to give my brother credit for introducing me to this idea of substituting tea for coffee in Irish Coffee, its perfect if you arent exactly a coffee drinker or if you dont feel like brewing up a whole pot of coffee.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 Irish tea bag (or English Breakfast tea)
  • 1-2 shots of Whiskey (something with a smokey mild flavor…I like Cutty Sark or Jameson)
  • 1 shot of Creme Liquor (my preference is Cask N Cream)

Bring water to a boil on the stove and allow to cool slightly before adding the tea (common we’ve all made tea before right!?). Allow the tea to steep for a few minutes. Add a shot (or two!) of whiskey and a shot of creme liquor. mix and serve! for added pizzaz top with a bit of vanilla powder, cinnamon or nutmeg. To put an exotic twist on this substitute a mild black chai tea instead! Bigelows Vanilla Chai is amazing fyi.

Serve and enjoy! This drink is a great breakfast treat if you want to start your Sunday morning off right (not recommended for weekdays) or a nice way to close out a day. Enjoy!
