Brief Encounters

I’ve always really loved Brief Encounters shows. If you aren’t familiar with them, they take artists of different disciplines and pair them up to create something together for one show.

February 23rd I get to be one of the artists. I will be paired with Jenny Magenta, a burlesque dancer.

Come check us out! 9PM at the Railway Club in Vancouver Feb 23rd.

Oh I’m the Worst

I’m the worst at updating my news, which is not, in itself, really news. I’m adding a media page for interviews and articles I’ve not posted, and am going to endeavour to update this more often. In the meantime, here is a recipe.

Chocolate Caramel Sparkle Cookies

 

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 48 chocolate-covered caramel candies (such as Rolo®)
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar**
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

 

  • Mix flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda together in a small bowl. Beat 1 cup white sugar,
    brown sugar, and butter together in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract and eggs; beat well. Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture; mix well.
  • Lightly flour hands. Shape about 1 tablespoon dough around 1 chocolate-covered caramel candy, covering it completely (sometimes this is easier with chilled dough). Repeat with remaining dough and caramel candies.
  • Place 2 tablespoons white sugar in a small bowl. Press one side of each ball into sugar. Place balls, sugar sides up, onto a baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookie is set and slightly cracked, 7 to 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for about 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

 

Makes 4 dozen

 

**this is for rolling the cookies in. 2T has never been enough in my experience, so just put some in a bowl a quarter cup at a time so you don’t waste any, but use as much as you need.

 

BONUS: These are also nice with a touch of sea salt sprinkled on them before baking.

I’m excited to announce I won Best Actress in a Short at the Macabre Faire Film Festival (NY) for Bruised!

Interview on Adventure Amigos

An interview I did with the fine fellas at Adventure Amigos on Wednesday night. You can hear the song I chose to open the show, which doesn’t fit most of what they do at all:)
