A Frozen Birthday Toast

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

It’s still September, isn’t it? Barely? Good! September marks the anniversary of the release of one of my most very favorite books, The Flavor Bible! Last year I did a post about it and this year Karen and Andrew (the authors) were kind/terrifically sweet and generous enough to send me a copy of The Flavor [...]

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 [...]

Rethinking a Least Favorite

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Recently I thought to myself, while building an apricot-raspberry tart at work, that raspberries were my least favorite berries. Strawberries are sweet and seductive, blueberries (wild ones, anyway) are tiny and tart, blackberries are big and inky and juicy. But raspberries? Really not my thing, unless of course you count one of my favorite summer [...]

You Tart!

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 [...]

Fear of Meltage

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

Currently, I’m sitting here in a pool of sweat, consuming as much icy deliciousness as I can. Sorbet, iced tea, iced coffee, you know. What’s that you say? It’s hot where you are, too? And you’re afraid that the ice cream you want so badly to cool you off will melt on the trip home? [...]

Gray and Yellow

Hi! Remember me? No? …Reeeeally? Maybe this will jog your memory.

Humble Beginnings

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

This is the first post in what will be an occasional little project I’m starting on this blog. You see, as much as I love cupcakes and coming up with ways to make them weird and wonderful, I think I bake them too much. Certainly for someone who has been working at a REAL restaurant [...]

In Which I Excitedly Throw Fruit at the Reader

Monday, December 7th, 2009

Well hello there. As you can see, I’m still a little…casual about updating the blog. Part of this is due to the ridiculously early darkness that prevents me from getting pictures on weekdays. Part is also due to the general feeling of “blaaahhhh I’m going back to bed” that the early darkness brings on in [...]

Long Time No Recipe

Monday, November 16th, 2009

Hi! It’s been a little while, hasn’t it? I’m terribly sorry about that. I’ve been awfully busy. I finally got an internship! It’s at a very fancy, new-ish little restaurant and I’m enjoying it immensely. Even though it’s only twice a week it is, unfortunately, cutting severely into my free time lately. Not to mention [...]
