Making Improvements

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

This was supposed to be an entry about some delicious pavlovas I made. Unfortunately, the weather is horrible and cloudy and rainy this week, and by the time I was able to get them all assembled and take some pictures it was too dark and they all came out grainy. It’s all very sad and […]

The Return of Guava Girl

Friday, May 1st, 2009

Over the last week I’ve definitely been feeling the effects of the warm spring weather. I’ve been revelling in the greenery and the growth of new life.

Just Because

Thursday, April 9th, 2009

I’ll be writing up my trip to New York in the coming days – I’ve got a lot of pictures to edit and a box of the most gorgeous macarons to eat. But in the meantime, here’s a little something sweet I put together before I left.

I Love Risotto

Friday, January 16th, 2009

Apologies if this is a little disjointed…meandering…non-linear…et cetera.  I am sitting down to some of the most delicious leftovers ever after three or four hours of intense kitchen activity.  Between the baking and the poaching, the skin on my face is tight and fresh (from all the steam).  The poaching isn’t quite finished – that’s […]

Photography is Hard!

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Every time I cook something halfway interesting, I try to take a few shots of it, some for use but mostly for practice.  My camera is nothing incredibly special but it isn’t bad, albeit totally clunky.  It has a sweet flip-screen, though; you can see yourself while you take a self-portrait…Anyway, I find that, much […]

A Few of my Favorite Things

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

The cupcakes will have to wait as I don’t know if I’ll even be topping them tonight (they are in the oven right now).  So, tomorrow, writing about my absolute favorite cupcakes.  I intended to make some of them tiny to take to a wine tasting I’m attending tomorrow night with my mom but I’ll […]
