Changing Seasons

Monday, September 7th, 2009

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 […]

A la Mode

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

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 […]

Making Improvements

Wednesday, May 6th, 2009

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 […]

Iron Cupcake Earth: Savory

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

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.

The Return of Guava Girl

Over the last week I’ve definitely been feeling the effects of the warm spring weather. I’ve been revelling in the greenery and the growth of new life.

A Brief Break From Tea

Saturday, April 18th, 2009

Sick of tea yet? A little? I’m not, but I made something reeeally good for dinner last night and thought the internet might be interested! I saw a yummy-looking dish over at the kitchn, and decided that before the Meyer lemons disappeared for the rest of the year I’d have to make it. So I […]

Lasagne of Emilia-Romagna: Daring Bakers March 2009

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

I was wondering what kind of challenge we’d be thrown this month for Daring Bakers. Last month was easy as they come, and I was cringing in anticipation of some ridiculously complicated, week-long project. Luckily it didn’t take me a week, just an afternoon/evening. It wasn’t particularly easy and it was a crazy day overall, […]

Eating My Vegetables

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

I love carrots.  I have ever since I was little – there are pictures of me as a baby gnawing on gigantic orange things in my high chair.  They’re so fun to eat, and so sweet…yum.  Normally, I keep a gigantic bag of baby carrots in the fridge and snack on them almost daily.  Recently, […]

I Love Risotto

Friday, January 16th, 2009

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 […]
