Thirty years after the defeat of the Galactic Empire, the galaxy faces a new threat from the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order. When a defector named Finn crash-lands on a desert planet, he meets Rey (Daisy Ridley), a tough scavenger whose droid contains a top-secret map.

    Now you can recreate this magical meal by making your own version of Rey’s Portion Bread in under a minute. Pour the ingredients into a cup, add liquid and heat, and just like that — you’ve got a fluffy, sweet, portable bread ready to take with you to the junkfields. Happy scavenging!

Free Lariat Coloring Page from Slugterra

Let’s start April Showers and April Fools day with a gooey, loogi, rope spewing slug. Lariats are Lime Green Slugs with aqua bellies and dark green faces. Their main attacks deal with long gooey ropes and loogis. Even Eli finds it sort of disgusting when he uses the rope to climb up an ice wall.

Lariats are a common slug but don’t let that discourage you from collecting one. While they are common, they can be very useful. Not only are they great for getting out of sticky situations, they work wonderful for tying enemies up or even attacking with their disgusting goo. They are also one of the few slugs that can be fired underwater without a slugshell. At the moment. only two other slugs can claim that talent: Jellyish and AquaBeek.

Kitty Litter Cake Recipe for April Fools Day

Kitty Litter Cake

It’s that time of year again. The day where all of us pranksters come out and really make a day worth remembering! After all, April First is the day of pranks and laughs. I know in my house we have to watch for plastic wrap over the toilet seat, crazy sounds, and random doors exploding as they open. Be on guard if you ever visit my house on April Fools Day.



This year I am going food crazy with snacks and treats that look delicious but are disgusting or look disgusting but taste delicious. For example, I am making a Kitty Litter Cake, which will be displayed on the table for an April Fools family and friends celebration. It looks real and disgusting, but the cake is moist and yummy. I wonder who will be the first to have a piece of cake. It is harder than it sounds when the cake is served from a pooper scooper. Even I have struggled with it in the past. However, once you get past the initial disgust the cake is a delicious treat.

The Kitty Litter Cake is fairly easy to make. Simply make two cakes and some pudding, crumble and mix together, sprinkle cookie crumbs, shape tootsie rolls and you are done. I have included the recipe below so that you can make it for your family this year. See who will be the bravest to take a bite.

Kitty Litter Cake


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package white cake mix
  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 (12 ounce) package vanilla sandwich cookies
  • 4 drops green food coloring
  • 5-6 Tootsie rolls

  1. Make cakes according to package directions
  2. Make pudding according to package directions and chill.
  3. Crumble sandwich cookies in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup.
  4. To the 1/4 cup add a few drops of green food coloring and mix.
  5. When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Add 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs, and the chilled pudding. Mix together. Use only enough pudding to make the cake moist not soggy.
  6. Sanitize and line a new kitty litter box with food safe plastic liner and put the cake mixture into box.
  7. Sprinkle the other half of the cookie crumbs over the cake
  8. Put the unwrapped tootsie rolls in a microwave safe dish and heat until soft. Shape the tootsie rolls too look like cat poop.
  9. Randomly half bury 3 Tootsie poops in the cake and sprinkle 3/4 of the green cookie mixture over the top of the cake.
  10. Place 2 tootsie poops on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with some of the green cookie crumbs. Hang one tootsie over the side of the litter box.
  11. Serve with the pooper scooper.

Voltron: Legendary Defender is Coming to Netflix

Voltron Legendary Defender Coming to Netflix

Let me just take a moment and be the geek that I am as a scream for joy about the fact that Voltron is entering my life once more! The 1980’s cartoon was something I loved to watch as a kid. The fact that five lion robots became an even bigger and better robot Titan was something that connected with my Sci-Fi side. The original show will always have a special place in my geeky heart.



Now, June 10th, a whole new generation will get to fall in love with these five heroes when Dreamworks Animation’s Voltron: Legendary Defender arrives on Netflix with 13 epic episodes! Check out the epic teaser below. I guarantee you will start geeking out as well.

FRIDAY, MARCH 25, 2016 – Live from the packed WonderCon 2016 VOLTRON panel, executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender), Co-Executive Producer Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra), and writer Tim Hedrick (The Legend of Korra, Avatar: The Last Airbender) sat alongside newly unveiled cast members to showcase never-before-seen artwork and footage of DreamWorks Animation’s all-new Netflix Original Series Voltron: Legendary Defender, debuting June 10, 2016.

Dos Santos shared “As children of the 80’s who grew up with Voltron what was there not to love? You had 5 awesome lions, piloted by 5 awesome heroes who combined to form a giant, sword wielding Titan! It unapologetically married Sci-fi and Fantasy in one incredibly over the top, bombastic package. Fans of the new series [Voltron: Legendary defender] can look for us to keep all those elements but also expect a much more fleshed out universe with a rich backstory and characters who will evolve over the course of the series.”

Also joining the panel were cast members Tyler Labine, Josh Keaton, Jeremy Shada, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Kimberly Brooks, Rhys Darby and a surprise video greeting from Steven Yeun. Attendees were treated to a sneak peek of the epic journey five friends embark upon as they are thrust into a sprawling intergalactic war, and only through the power of teamwork can they unite to form the mighty warrior VOLTRON!
