I know it’s only started to cool down outside, but fall is undeniably coming. For some people, this is a huge relief. Others are kicking and screaming as they cook out one last time this holiday weekend and try to catch a few final rays at the beach. Though I’m not much of a cooker-outer […]

After I made rhubarb pie, along with what I considered to be a very disappointing attempt at a fruity ice cream (though it went very well with the pie), I got to thinking what other ice cream flavors would be nice with rhubarb pie. Strawberry ice cream is the obvious answer, but when have I […]
You know what’s awesome?
This was supposed to be an entry about some delicious pavlovas I made. Unfortunately, the weather is horrible and cloudy and rainy this week, and by the time I was able to get them all assembled and take some pictures it was too dark and they all came out grainy. It’s all very sad and […]
It was surprisingly easy for me to come up with a first concept for this month’s Iron Cupcake challenge, even though I clearly walk on the sweet side of things.

Apologies if this is a little disjointed…meandering…non-linear…et cetera. I am sitting down to some of the most delicious leftovers ever after three or four hours of intense kitchen activity. Between the baking and the poaching, the skin on my face is tight and fresh (from all the steam). The poaching isn’t quite finished – that’s […]
