Crazy for Crazy Eyes and the Five Best Binge-worthy Netflix Offerings.

tell me, tell ME, TELL ME…Did you watch season 2 of Orange is the New Black?

I’m having severe withdrawal symptoms. I’m feeling dizzy. I’m seeing orange jumpsuits in my periphery. I think a gorgeous and tall black woman was following me, giving me bits of wisdom in my dream last night. (I think it was just Erica. I read her killer post right before bed.) Truth be told, I’d not last ten minutes in prison. So I keep my Martha Stewart tendencies limited to organizing my books and making cookies.

Make cookies, not shanks.  (I’m not against shank-shaped cookies.)

Season 2 did NOT let me down. I can’t help how much I love Crazy Eyes, and wish I could be her bff/perhaps have her as a case study. It felt like as soon as I pressed “play” on season two, it was 3 am, I was starting to smell, and I’d watched every episode. I think I may have eaten an entire bag of Trader Joe’s popcorn as well. I cannot be held responsible for things that happen when I’m in a Netflix K-hole. In honor of my love of all-things binge-watchy. I compiled a list of the five best binges on Netflix right now!!!

Five Best Binge-worthy Netflix offerings.

Now? The food.

In honor of The Paradise, I’ve made a Britishy breakfast cake with an American twist.
