A Savory Pumpkinny Twist

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

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. […]

Daring Bakers August 2009 – Is My Dobos Burning?

Thursday, August 27th, 2009

The August 2009 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Angela of A Spoonful of Sugar and Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella. They chose the spectacular Dobos Torte based on a recipe from Rick Rodgers’ cookbook Kaffeehaus:  Exquisite Desserts from the Classic Caffés of Vienna, Budapest, and Prague.

Iron Cupcake: Herbs I

Monday, July 6th, 2009

This is the first of I don’t know how many Iron Cupcake entries I’ll get to this month. I’m hoping at least two more, and one will (hopefully!) be entered in the first Iron Cupcake: Midcoast Maine (which happens to be occuring three days after my new lease starts, so basically while I am moving…I […]

Iron Cupcake: Summer Berries IV

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

I didn’t think I’d have time for this final entry, but I was at the grocery store the other night and noticed that the raspberries weren’t THAT expensive…and it all went downhill from there.

Happy Birthday!

Hooray! It’s my birthday!

Iron Cupcake Earth: Savory II

Saturday, May 23rd, 2009

My entire life, I’ve dreamed of the day I would move away from Maine, preferably to a city. I don’t like being relatively isolated, having to drive significant distances to get to anything interesting or unusual, and being years behind trends in food and fashion. Luckily within a few months I’ll be in The Very […]

Iron Cupcake Earth: Soda

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

This month, I was a little “meh” about the theme for Iron Cupcake. I don’t really drink soda (I’m a tea and water kind of girl), and considered sitting this one out. But, it wouldn’t be a challenge if I didn’t do it, and besides, I was able to make something for the coffee challenge, […]

Adding to the Confusion

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

I feel fairly confident in saying that every single person (at least in the US) who has ever made, eaten or even mentioned macarons has had to explain themselves. No, they are NOT macaroons. So stop looking at me like I sprouted a third eye when I go on about how delicate and finicky they […]

Iron Cupcake Earth: Coffee I

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Don’t let this recipe color your opinion of me.  Yes, it is the fifth Iron Cupcake entry of mine in a row that contains alcohol.  I promise I am not an alcoholic!  In fact, I rarely even drink anymore and would generally much rather bake with any alcohol I do have.  The only reason this […]
