In the Test Kitchen

Monday, March 21st, 2011

So I’ve been getting a little bored at home, waiting for the restaurant to get to the point where I can go in and at least do SOMETHING (once the water gets turned on I can go help clean things, wheeee!) and cataloguing recipes and making up menus just wasn’t cutting it anymore. I had [...]

Pomegranate Hearts

Friday, February 11th, 2011

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 [...]

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.

A Little Tropical Action

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Hi! It’s been a while…oops. No cupcake competitions this month. Honestly I just wasn’t feeling the Mystery Box theme (I am not a sentimental person and the things I liked as a kid were pretty boring…ok at one point I had a great idea but it was on the last possible day to enter and [...]

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Oh hey. It’s been like a month. I promised things were going to change, didn’t I? …Well, they’re not. At least not in the way I promised. See, I just don’t have the energy, or honestly, the interest to be as hardcore into blogging as I was a year ago. Priorities change. So instead of [...]

The Spoils of Food Blogging

The 2010 March Daring Baker’s challenge was hosted by Jennifer of Chocolate Shavings. She chose Orange Tian as the challenge for this month, a dessert based on a recipe from Alain Ducasse’s Cooking School in Paris.

The Perfect Excuse

Sunday, February 7th, 2010

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, or if you’ve tried to play catch-up in the archives, you may have noticed that I went crazy for Meyer lemons last winter. With my limited amount of free time (until now) I hadn’t been able to come up with an excuse to buy any. No [...]

Mull the Cold Away

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Recently I got an email from the radtastic people at POM Wonderful. Gee, I wonder why they chose NOW to email me? Could it be…*looks up at header* Hehe! They wanted to send me some juice. And who am I to refuse sweet, tangy pomegranate juice?
