    Please, I must know who wrote the line ‘… exquisite, ineffable epitome of unalloyed bliss.’

  2. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    If I was answering like my inner child -maybe frosted flakes or reeses puffs? But the current my would probably say Annies cereals. And it does help that they are shaped like cute bunnies 🙂

  3. Rach

    Oh gracious, what book is that from?? Good to have such great advice like that. 😉

  4. JohannaGGG

    mmm pancakes – but I didn’t think you liked them – is this a big step or am I missing something? But I can just see you eating the happy star cereal with lots of dark chocolate peanut butter!

    As for the advice on how to kiss girls, how did you happen to find this? Do let us know if you were hunting for the advice because you … ahem … needed it 🙂

  5. veganlisa

    Wait…you cut us off just when it was getting to the heart of the matter. Please…what do I do if the person I am kissing has lips like Joan Crawford?

  6. Catherine

    Oh my. That book reminds me of a delightful tome I found many years ago (in the medical library where I worked, in fact – the librarian liked collecting really old and dodgy medical texts) called “The Ladies’ Guide in Health and Disease”, first published in 1896.

    It had all sorts of excellent and useful advice, including admonishments against corsets (terribly injurious to the spine and internal organs), exhortations against marrying men who smoked (if women would universally refuse to marry men who smoked, then men would soon give up this disgusting habit), and dire warnings against that most immoral of dances, the waltz (many a respectable woman has been Ruined by dancing. I’m pretty sure one is supposed to roll the ‘R’ when saying that.).

    I look forward to reading more excerpts…

    I have dreams about Dark Chocolate Dreams. Good ones!

    I’d just kiss any mouth….or cereal! If it’s extra sweet cereal I’d probably want a clumpy muesli with lots of different bits and pieces. Oh, honey nut cornflakes are pretty good. As a dessert!

  8. Helen (Grab Your Fork)

    Oh lol. Did I ever tell you one of my first jobs was working on a teenage counselling hotline and one poor boy rang me asking for advice on how to kiss a girl? As I recall, I think I told him to just relax and go with the flow.

  9. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    I don’t eat cereal. There, I said it.

    As for that book…. what a cliffhanger! Where is the sage advice that will lead us to this aforementioned unalloyed bliss?!?!

  10. Junia @ Mis Pensamientos

    HAHAHHA oh my goodness. that is hilarious!!! you must post more, b/c i am curious to what it says. LOL.

    and dark chocolate pb will bring me to my happy place too. heehee.

  11. Gary

    My favourite sugary cereal is Frosties

  12. Choc Chip Uru

    Gotta love good Asian sweets and savouries – your pics are fantastic 😀

    Nice one Hannah. I’m not sure what the connection is between sweet kisses and sugary cereals, but I knew a tall guy at high school who kissed so many girls they called him ‘grass-hopper’, coz they reckoned he was a cereal (sic) pest.

  14. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    I vote for more extracts of that book. It seems to hold the wisdom of the ages in there!

    I do not like sweet cereal. Even if there is too much dried fruit in my muesli I get turned off. As a result I cannot eat cereal in South America or Asia because they all seem to be sugar coated. However I do love a sweet breakfast – give me maple syrup soaked pancakes any day. Aren’t contradictions fun?

  15. Lou

    Ha, I love the kissing tips – gold 🙂

    Sugary cereal? Hmmmm Crunchy Nut Cornflakes!!!

    Oh dark chocolate dreams you lucky duck you!

  16. Three-Cookies

    Or maybe the chicken that produced the egg on the right tried too hard and the egg came ahead of schedule:)
    Where the advise? It raises the issue but no advise. Please don’t do this to us. I guess your female readers aren’t fussed

  17. Catherine

    I confess I grew up on coco pops and milk while my bros ate weetbix dusted in white sugar.

    As for kissing different-sized lips a lady must apply herself to the task and put in years of dedication and practice.

  18. whisperinggums

    I protest on behalf of trainee chickens! And that’s all I’m going to say … except crying or no crying, Mecca Bah was nice.

  19. Margaret

    Those kissing instructions are hilarious! Which book is it from?
    I don’t eat cereal; I just don’t find it fills me up. I’m at the other end of the breakfast spectrum and in the dead of winter can be caught eating lamb soup for breakfast. Mmmmmm 🙂

  20. Fatboo

    Oh dear, your comment about the chicken eggs made me crack up! 😉

  21. leaf (the indolent cook)

    I used to eat honey stars growing up, sweet and tasty! That book sounds delightful. I look forward to more pearls of wisdom shared here.

  22. Lauren

    I have that EXACT coconut roll on my desk. Must be from Malaysia! I *wanted* to like durian, buuut…

  23. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I love these posts so much Hannah. Please never stop them! For today, 3 things:

    1. That chocolate peanut butter mix nearly made me swoon.
    2. The picture of the eggs with your comment literally made me laugh out loud.
    3. I have never considered the serious question of kissing different sized mouths but now I am concerned about which size mouth I have. But it’s really not the sort of question you can ask someone. Please reveal the book eventually!

  24. Vien @ We Dare Food

    OMG God bless USA Foods right? I can’t even remember how I managed to get through a day without PB&Co.!
    oooohhh fave sugary cereal.. Does rice bubbles count? They were my very first cereal EVER! Never had cereal before I went to US (about 8yrs old?) and I stumbled upon some magical thing that crackled and popped in my milk! Had them every single day when I was there and still loving them!! 😀

  25. Libby

    The second last pic of the pancakes made me drool while the very last pic made me literally LOL. Hahaha, I also want to know what sort of book you’ve been reading :p

  26. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Lucky I wasn’t drinking because I think I would have spat out my drink at that little handy piece of advice! 😛

  27. Emma

    I want a brother to spin me in circles!! I want a brother. Too late though, by a long shot.

    What are those packets of confectionary? Liquid somethings?

    I’m not a big sugary cereal fan. I was trained not to like them when young and I haven’t really broken that mold. I’ve always had a soft spot for Honeycombs though:)

  28. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    DURIAN-flavored candy?! I’ve yet to even try a real durian. I’m a bad raw foodist. ::sob::

    Omg the kissing, omg. Priceless.

  29. Daisy@Nevertoosweet

    LOL great funny post 😛 I love the difference in egg sizes hahaha ~ HHAAHHAA how to kiss a girl with different mouth sizes? that’s so funny!

  30. Tracy

    AHAHAHA! I just started laughing outloud at work (first at the title being a lie, then the eggs, and finally the book passage), luckily my boss is in a meeting…….. I have to say I have Joan-esk lips, and my fiance’s are smaller and he DOESN’T have to travel around, nor do I think I would like that very much (I wonder who the author was “with” when he/she wrote this book, or if he/she was just imagining what it would be like, lol). PLEASE post more! I am assuming there are juicier subjects in there ; )

  31. Errign

    I laughed out loud at that “advice”…please continue to share those gems of information. 🙂

    I shuddered a bit at the idea of something being durian flavored, since I’m pretty sure I feel like that stuff smells like hot garbage.

  32. Shannon

    Chickpea battered mussels?! How dare you taunt me with such deliciousness?!

  33. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Yeah what gives, chicken? try harder. that egg was pathetic. or really cute. let’s say cute, I’m in a good mood 🙂 Favourite sugary cereal growing up was frosties!!!! it was my mum’s childhood fav too. Or cocoa pops. I HATED fruit loops with a passion as a child. still do. Possibly my least favourite food ever. i do not understand them, i despise them. ok good mood has now gone. that chicken was f****ing pathetic. God.
    Heidi xo
    i kid, I’m happy 🙂

  34. theresa

    I cannot thank you for that book until I know the answer! You’ve left me hanging. The technique is different, of course, but what is the technique? I must know.

  35. Richa@HobbyandMore

    Same here.. i need to know what book is that!:)) and did the author publish a scoreboard of whether those techniques worked! i dont like cereal.:)


    Totally LOL at that piece of advice.

  37. Tammy

    I want some sweet potato falafel!!

  38. ella @ lifeologia

    Just loving how you tied some kissing-wisdom into this post ;D

    Miss Hannah, I would like to invite you to my Potluck Party so you could share one of your fabulous recipes 😉 Hope to see you there. xo

  39. Hannah

    You have excellent taste in peanut butter- The Dark Chocolate by Peanut Butter and Co. is one of my favorites, too. It’s a rare treat though, since it’s more than twice as much as my usual pick, which is such a sad shame!

  40. Sig

    Mmmm…chocolate and PB combined…I think that person was spying on my dreams when they cam up with that!

    And oh my…I nearly spit out my coffee when I read that lovely bit of ‘advice’. Now I’ll never forget it (and it will probably make me look at girl’s mouths just that little bit more creepily)
