Crispy

Monday, September 3rd, 2012

This is less of a recipe, more of just an update. If you follow me on Twitter or know me personally this isn’t news. That right there is the first thing I’ve baked in a little over a week. “But Anna!” you might be saying. “Don’t you bake things all the time at work? At [...]

A Balanced Breakfast

Saturday, January 29th, 2011

You know what I don’t post often enough? Breakfast foods. Oh sure, there were crepes that one time, scones at some point, then there were those amazing oatmeal clafoutis, and of course the epically wonderful pumpkin gingerbread muffins, but it’s been nearly a year since the muffins and I thought I ought to give more [...]

Pumpkindoodled

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Well, it happened again. I bought into the “pumpkin shortage” in October and am left with an extra can of orange vegetable goop. I love the goop, but it’s hard to think of things to do with it, especially after the holidays and all the baking and cookies and… …Wait, cookies? Hm, maybe not so [...]

Wasn’t it Just, Like, October?

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

Hey, it’s 2011! I sure haven’t been around much lately. This year I’m going to try to work on that. I’m not going to force anything or stress about deadlines, though. Some weeks and months I just don’t have as much free time or energy and nothing bad will happen if I don’t enter this [...]

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 [...]

For Your Health!

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

This is going to be a rather unusual post, one of those rare, non-sugary things that I come up with every once in a great while. Not only that, but it’s flat-out healthy, and came together out of a particularly successful spring trip to the Greenmarket.

Gray and Yellow

Wednesday, April 21st, 2010

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

The Spoils of Food Blogging

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

As much as I enjoy participating in the Daring Bakers, I do run into the same problem fairly frequently – I make some component for the challenge dessert and end up with much too much of whatever it is. This time, it was grapefruit marmalade. Luckily, I only had to wonder what I was going [...]

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 [...]
