Cooking With Stardust Soon Come

If you're a Wonderdark reader curious about the full 'Cooking With Stardust' issue from book one, you don't have much longer to wait. The issuing's been written and illustrated for a bit now (despite a few cover changes). It was meant to post after the public ARC-release of Dara&The Dream Engine (the 2nd book of Wonderdark), but a storm of delays and complications followed that only permitted the one book to reach the merry band of bookeaters awaiting it.

Please accept our humblest apologies with a recipe to tide over your greentongues:

Tof Loaf & EZ Potatoes

(ingredients are in italics)

Thaw two blocks pre-frozen tofu (you can do put them in the freezer the night before – you may also try this with equivalent non-soy bean curd), and squeeze the water out. Crumble the tofu into a mixing bowl, and mix with an equal part of highly seasoned rice flour (or preferred flowyr). Mix thoroughly with a drizzle of organic cooking oil. Form a tofloaf of the dough and place in a lightly oiled bread pan or casserole dish. Place in oven after preheating to 350. Drizzle occasionally with seasoned oil and cook for 1 hour (dependent upon your oven - If you prefer the tofloaf stuffed, make a fold of the dough and add filling before adding them to the bread pan/casserole dish.

While the Tofloaf is cooking, set a pot of water to a boil and add a few rinsed organic potatoes to it. Allow to boil for at least 45 minutes. Once removed, slice open and add pats of Earth Balance, Green Sourcream ( 1 teaspoon each apple cider vinegar and lemon juice in 1 cup unsweetened vegan crème or arrow-root thickened-mylk base) or optionally drizzle in garlic and onion oil. Sprinkle seasalt to taste.

Am I Not Human: Police Brutality and Community Outrage

What is it going to take for concrete measures against police brutality to be taken? Without staunch regulation that acts as a strong deterrent, we can expect more riots like the one that took place in the UK earlier this month to happen again. Community "powerlessness" will soon become communal fury faced with terrors issued from the hands of those who are charged to serve and protect.

Please take a moment to visit the following links and add any word you may have of movements to push for severe regulations that will discourage the abuse of power in uniform (post links in or outside of the states in the comments so everyone can hopefully find resources). At the very least, we all have the power to spread news of resources and organizations who are dedicated to eradicating police brutality.

Let's put our heads and voices together and find a solution.
On behalf of all innocents who deserve to be served and protected without threat or power-abusive beatings, electrocution (tasers), and murder, we ask:

Please Excuse The Absence of July's Post


I apologize for the absence of July's 'Am I Not Human' post. Things have been challenging on this end after a big move and a robbery (we weren't home and are okay). I have every intention to post a bright light for the August 27th campaign.

Unnecessary setbacks be damned. We persevere.

Blissings 'pon your lights.

P.S. There are plenty light-offerings brewing. Opposition can't delay them forever. Soon cometh.
