***Voting is over and the results are in…I WIN! Thanks to all my readers for the support.*** I know I don’t talk about myself all that much here. I’m more interested in telling you about food. But as this is food related, I figured I should mention it here. I left my job. I know. […]
Hi! It’s almost Valentine’s Day. Do you know what that means for me? Well, in the past it would’ve meant I’d be looking forward to a day (or at least an evening) off, spent snuggling and probably having a nice dinner or something with Z. But now? Now it means I’m gearing up for a […]
You know what I don’t post often enough? Breakfast foods. Oh sure, there were crepes that one time, scones at some point, then there were those amazing oatmeal clafoutis, and of course the epically wonderful pumpkin gingerbread muffins, but it’s been nearly a year since the muffins and I thought I ought to give more […]
A few months ago I got a special gift of a really useful book and some wonderful wines to go with it. I used the red for sorbet, ended up just enjoying the white (a Riesling) on its own (sooo gooood) and stashed the sparkling in my fridge. For the holiday season. That book had […]
Well, it happened again. I bought into the “pumpkin shortage” in October and am left with an extra can of orange vegetable goop. I love the goop, but it’s hard to think of things to do with it, especially after the holidays and all the baking and cookies and… …Wait, cookies? Hm, maybe not so […]
Hey, it’s 2011! I sure haven’t been around much lately. This year I’m going to try to work on that. I’m not going to force anything or stress about deadlines, though. Some weeks and months I just don’t have as much free time or energy and nothing bad will happen if I don’t enter this […]
The giveaway ended last night at midnight and today I randomly selected a winner (using a winner picking program created by my adorable site designer) The winner is #18, Melanie! She has been emailed, thanks to everyone for entering!
Hey guys! Are you ready to do some holiday baking? I’m just about ready (getting my recipients list in order, compiling lists of ingredients I’ll need, making last minute tweaks and overhauls to recipes…basically being insane about it) but first I need to do a little shopping. I’m sure you could use a few things, […]
Time for my latest cupcake! Wheeee! I decided that for this month’s Cupcake Hero I’d try to avoid buying ingredients, and I almost completely succeeded.
This month’s Mystery Box theme is the color orange. Totally appropriate and delicious. The recipe I decided on could have been made with sweet potato, squash or pumpkin, and since I decided against sweet potato and couldn’t find canned squash in my neighborhood, I went with good old pumpkin. Oh, pumpkin. I do adore you. […]
