The Problem with Leftovers

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

Well, not so much leftovers as bits of ingredients. A few egg whites here, a handful of walnuts there… A bit of honey and a dash of cardamom later and I had some delicious, slightly exotic cookies. So what’s the problem?

The Law of Shortages

Saturday, January 30th, 2010

Remember back in October when everyone was freaking out over the supposed pumpkin shortages? That was a little scary. I remember thinking to myself, “hm, better go get some pumpkin so I can make my annual pumpkin cupcakes, plus a little extra.” So I bought two cans. Because I am poor and have very little [...]

What Resolutions?

Friday, January 1st, 2010

You know what happens when you set out to make all kinds of ambitious, delicious, adorable little Christmas treats to send out to everyone, and all but one of them completely fails? You remake them. What do you do if you’re REALLY busy with school and life in general and don’t have the time to [...]

Mull the Cold Away

Monday, December 28th, 2009

Recently I got an email from the radtastic people at POM Wonderful. Gee, I wonder why they chose NOW to email me? Could it be…*looks up at header* Hehe! They wanted to send me some juice. And who am I to refuse sweet, tangy pomegranate juice?

Daring Bakers December 2009: Home for the Holidays

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

So! I still haven’t found the time or energy to really get a coherent blog post together (and the majority of my holiday goodies have been failing MISERABLY) and things aren’t looking good for January either (can you say nearly a month of exams and multi-day projects?) but the other bakers are a-posting. Since I’m [...]

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 [...]

A Very Tasty Date

Saturday, November 21st, 2009

One thing I don’t really bake often is quickbread. I generally wait until I have some bananas or zucchini or something to use up before I start pouring things into loaf pans. And then – even if the results are REALLY good – I don’t bother sharing because they don’t photograph that well and I, [...]

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 [...]

Pumpkin Cupcakes, Part 2

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

These might look a little familiar to anyone who has bothered to read ALL the way back on this blog…back to when the pictures were horrible instead of slightly-less-than-horrible…

Chewy Inspiration

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

Like most people who are strangely addicted to making up recipes and experimenting in the kitchen, I occasionally get hit hard by inspiration.  So hard that an idea doesn’t even make it into my notebook.
