Another Treat for Mom

Sunday, May 10th, 2009

It’s a little late (almost 11pm here) but happy Mother’s Day to all the awesome moms out there. I made my mom something tasty for Mother’s Day. Something that I’ve been wanting to make for a little while, too.

Crepe Wednesday, Anyone?

Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

I really wanted to post this yesterday, a.k.a. Pancake Day, a.k.a. Fat Tuesday, a.k.a. Mardi Gras.  But, unfortunately for me, I live in Maine, and we got hit with a big, stupid storm on Sunday night (that absolutely NO ONE seemed to see coming) and had our power knocked out from then until early this […]

Back to the Kitchen

Friday, January 9th, 2009

I managed to make something yummy to eat last night!  I think I’m pretty much back to normal, and am now not afraid of yogurt…because it turns out to not have been the yogurt.  Because now Z is sick.  So I guess I caught something somehow…that didn’t have any symptoms at all up until the […]

Christmas Morning Breakfast?

Thursday, December 25th, 2008

Merry Christmas, if that’s your thing.  Happy halfway-through Hanukkah, if that’s your thing.  I don’t even have a tree, and due to my self-imposed unemployment couldn’t afford presents.  If you’re getting anything from me, I made it myself.  In most cases, this also means you’ll have delicious sugary treats coming…tomorrow.  Due to the weather, we […]

It Might Be Time for a Tea Party

In my quest to use more vanilla beans, I created another yummy cookie based on a really basic, easy recipe.

Big Fat (Vanilla) Beans

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Though I’m glad I was able to acquire a bunch of lovely, fat, juicy vanilla beans relatively cheaply online, I’ve been trying to come up with vanilla-filled goodies to make.  Since I had more egg whites left over from the wine buttercream, I decided to try some vanilla bean meringues.

World Peace

I made World Peace Cookies!  Yay!  They were fun and turned out yummy.  Not too sweet, and kind of sandy-textured, with nice gooey chunks of chocolate complimented by fine salt.

So I Noticed…

Saturday, December 20th, 2008

Christmas is only a few days away…and I’ve been intending to make edible goodies for people (and a couple non-edible handcrafted items).  Soooo I started last night.  I had egg whites left over from making the wine frosting the other night, and had been seeing a lot of super cute little peppermint meringues on others’ […]
