Doctor Who Party {Part II}

New mouth. New rules.

The latest Doctor has been around for awhile, but I always like to revisit the episode where the Doctor meets Amelia Pond for the first time. He has just regenerated and that makes him very, very hungry! The problem is, he has no idea what he likes to eat. So he has Amelia search through her cupboards. She offers him yogurt, beans, bread and butter, bacon; none of which he is even remotely fond of. He finally settles himself on fish fingers and custard. Ew! Gross. I know. Luckily, when I thought about recreating this unusual dish, I decided to make a fish finger look-alike.  Instead of actually fish fingers, I made tea-infused shortbread.

"Fish Sticks" and custard

The tea infusion itself is actually very simple. Whenever you are baking with tea, steep approximately 1 1/2 teaspoons of loose leaf tea per tablespoon of butter. It is also a good idea to use unsalted butter, so as not to alter the flavor of the tea.

Tea Infused Shortbread - "Fish Fingers"

I used crumbled Biscoff cookies for the “breading” of my fish sticks. Just pulse 10-15 cookies in your food processor and then roll your “fish sticks” until coated.

Tea Infused Shortbread - "Fish Fingers" & Custard

Recipe by Carrie


  • 2 cups, plus 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 cup, plus 3 teaspoons loose leaf tea
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • Package of biscoff cookies


  1. In a small saucepan over low-medium heat, melt the butter until it just becomes a liquid.
  2. Add the loose tea leaves.
  3. Continue heating the mixture for about 5 minutes on low-medium heat.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow to stand for another 5 minutes or until the color of the butter is slightly tinted by the tea leaves; it will have a hint of green.
  5. Pour the mixture through a fine sieve, pressing hard on the tea leaves and then discard the leaves.
  6. Let the butter come to room temperature.
  7. For the "breading", pulse 10-15 biscoff cookies in your food processor, until they become a fine crumb mixture.
  8. In your stand mixer bowl, cream tea infused butter, brown sugar, and honey until light and fluffy.
  9. Add flour, 1 cup at a time and mix well.
  10. Your dough should be pulling away from the bowl at this point.
  11. Roll and shape tablespoon portions of dough into "fish finger" size; about 3-5 inches long.
  12. Roll each "fish finger" in the biscoff cookie crumbs to give it the "breading" effect.
  13. Place 1/2 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets lined with parchment or silapat.
  14. Bake at 325° for 15-20 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.

Tonight marks the Season premiere of Doctor Who 7.5. We have a tradition in our house that before every new episode, we make homemade popcorn. It kind of makes us feel like we are at the movie theatre. This season, I thought I would step it up a notch with my Geronimo Popcorn Mix. Geronimo is the Doctor’s favorite catch phrase. Every Doctor has one or two.

Geronimo Popcorn Mix

I love the sweet and salty in this snack. York Peppermint patties have always been one of my favorite candies, but these minis, along with the gold and silver stars make it cool.

 The Doctor would never go anywhere without his sonic screwdriver, so I thought I would make it into a drink for tonight.


I am in love with my Soda Stream and it came in handy for this drink perfect for any Doctor. The mango energy drink gives the ordinary screwdriver, a sonic kick.

Doctor Who Party {Part I}

  Doctor Who Party

It is no secret that I am obsessed with Doctor Who. In fact, I have been waiting for the TARDIS (Time And Relative Dimension In Space) to show up in my backyard for some time now. The way I see it, the Hubster and I could just pull a “Rory and Amy” and fly off into space and time with the Doctor any day now…

Annnnny day now…

Mr. BNP and I are fairly new to the Who scene, considering it is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. We jumped on the Whovian train a few years back and I have since caught up by watching the reruns on Netflix. By far, my favorite Doctor is David Tennant. He was the Tenth Doctor and coincidentally, played Barty Crouch Jr. in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (my favorite HP movie.)

There are currently Eleven Doctors total, with the marvelous Matt Smith playing the current Doctor. Why so many Doctors? Well…it’s a bit of a long story, but  to avoid  any confusion to all my non-Whovian readers, I will try and make it short. There really is only one Doctor. He is the last time lord from the planet Gallifrey.  The Doctor is around 900 years old and every time he “dies”, he actually regenerates into someone “new”. New face. New look. New likes. New dislikes. New tastes, even. But inside it is the same old wonderful Doctor. Get it?

The Doctor travels in a big, blue police box called the TARDIS. It is bigger on the inside and is able to travel through space and time.  He typically has a companion or two with him. That’s what I am not-so-patiently waiting for…

Once they step out of the TARDIS, the Doctor and his companions are always faced with a new dilemma that could change the course of history as we know it. He is often seen battling Daleks, Cybermen, Weeping Angels, or any other alien life force with his sonic screwdriver in order to save the world. In short…BEST. SHOW. EVER.

March 30th marks the mid-season premiere of Doctor Who 7.5!!!

There are not many Whovians in my little town (I know a total of 5), so I thought, why not have a virtual party to celebrate? There has got to be a TON of you out there in cyber world!

 So to kick off our Who party, I made you guys a TARDIS cake!

Doctor Who Party

 I wonder if its bigger in the inside…

This cake started out as a 9 x13 vanilla cake. I used a cardboard TARDIS pattern to cut out the shape, crumb coated it, and then covered the cake with the first layer of blue fondant. For the second layer, I cut out the squares using a square fondant cutter and carefully laid it on top. Finally, I cut out the white squares, added the yellow light on top, and glued it all together.

I dyed the fondant myself and had blue hands for a week!

Doctor Who Party

I found edible stars to make it feel more spacey wacey!

How about some Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Push Pops?

I used my mini muffin pan to make these cute little cakes and then squished them together with yummy blue buttercream!

Doctor Who Party

Bow ties are cool! Especially when they hold the key to the TARDIS! I am so in love with them! I found the keys at my local craft store and I cut mini bow ties out of blue sparkly foam paper.


Did you notice the gold and silver stars? And the blue asteroids? Ahhh. I die. I mean…I regenerate.

Doctor Who Party

I used my basic vanilla cake recipe and added a bit of cinnamon spice, but you could choose whatever flavor you want.

Doctor Who Valentines That Will Melt Even the Doctor’s Two Hearts {Free Printable}

I love the fact that as a teacher, I get to participate in the yearly Valentine’s Day exchange of candy and cards.  At the beginning of February, I take to the local card shops and try to find the best valentine that represents me and my favorite things. Last year it was totally Harry Potter all the way. I thought this year I might do something Hunger Games related, but lately I have been really into catching up on all of the old Doctor Who reruns. So last week I finally decided I wanted to pass out Doctor Who valentines to all the kiddos. When I couldn’t find any, I thought why not make them?!?

Here is my take on how the Doctor, Oods, Daleks, and the TARDIS would celebrate Valentine’s Day…if they could…


I am so excited on how my TARDIS came out. I only had to draw it once (unlike my Ood) but I think it turned out brilliant!


Here is my Ood…I changed his second brain into a heart for Valentine’s Day!


My Valentine Dalek has chosen to say INFATUATE instead of EXTERMINATE!


I have my bag packed in case the Doctor ever shows up with the TARDIS…
