Moving On & Looking Back

Saturday, March 12th, 2011

***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. [...]

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. [...]

What do you get when you cross the desire to use up some extra ingredients in your fridge and the desire to use a slightly neglected favorite pan at the same time?

Healthyberry Blues

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

Since I’ve become so hopelessly addicted to my ice cream maker, I’ve been trying to come up with ways to share the things I make with others. Unfortunately it is very hard to transport and share ice cream, so I was thinking about putting it in paper cups. Which somehow made me think, “huh, I [...]

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 [...]

A la Mode

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

After I made rhubarb pie, along with what I considered to be a very disappointing attempt at a fruity ice cream (though it went very well with the pie), I got to thinking what other ice cream flavors would be nice with rhubarb pie. Strawberry ice cream is the obvious answer, but when have I [...]

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 [...]

You know what’s awesome?
