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 […]

A Savory Pumpkinny Twist

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

This month’s Mystery Box theme is the color orange. Totally appropriate and delicious. The recipe I decided on could have been made with sweet potato, squash or pumpkin, and since I decided against sweet potato and couldn’t find canned squash in my neighborhood, I went with good old pumpkin. Oh, pumpkin. I do adore you. […]

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.

Daring Bakers April 2010: Steamed Pudding

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

The April 2010 Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Esther of The Lilac Kitchen. She challenged everyone to make a traditional British pudding using, if possible, a very traditional British ingredient: suet. I wasn’t terribly excited about this challenge at first, and didn’t bother with the whole suet thing, choosing instead to substitute butter (of […]

Red Varrrrrrlvet

Wednesday, February 24th, 2010

I postulated about a month or so ago that I wondered if one could make red velvet mochi cake. I have absolutely no idea why this popped into my head (I’m not even really a fan of red velvet) but I decided it would be worth a try. How hard could it be? A little […]

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 […]

Ps & Qs

Wednesday, November 25th, 2009

I am totally in love with the Union Square Green Market. Well, not every day. Some days I don’t find anything inspiring and all the tourists and snobs there (standing in my way) just make me angry. But other days… I find exactly what I’ve been looking for. Like a gigantic crate of quince. Or […]

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…

Now in Glorious Color

Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

One of the few – VERY few – things I miss about Maine is my parents’ garden. There’s nothing like veggies fresh from the garden to make dinner awesome.

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.
