***UPDATE*** I’ve figured out how to make these much bigger than previously with a few tweaks. If you tried these and they melted, see if the recipe works better for you now. I’ve been an icky depressed grump the past couple of months (The Spring That Isn’t/Wasn’t is only partially to blame). And much to […]
Hey there. I mentioned recently on Twitter that I’d like to start blogging casually again. Since my computer and camera were recently liberated from my ownership, I have no pressure to make things Tastespotting/Foodgawker-worthy. It’s all about the flavor anyway. I’m not into the tablescapes, carefully arranged heirloom tomatoes and blown-out whites. So, here’s a […]
I love sponge cake. I didn’t know it until I went to pastry school, because I never had it growing up. I don’t know exactly why I love the airy, eggy stuff – I can’t stand eggs on their own but add sugar and I’m all over ’em. The other day I was flipping through […]

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a certain little something…something a little tricky, a little fussy, but always worth it…when it works. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
Although I moved to the Very Big City all by myself (well, I brought Bowser, but he’s the kind of company that just makes a racket until I feed him), I manage to not feel lonely most of the time. In fact, less than a week after I got here, I was lucky enough to […]
I’m back from my apartment hunt and still catching up on basically everything, so this will be short. And sweet, or so I’m told.
