And now for something a little different.
My mother is superhip and crafty. So crafty, in fact, that she has had patterns in the very popular One-Yard-Wonders books. Their latest offering was just released upon the world Fabric-by-Fabric One-Yard-Wonders book. You are all so creative, I know that many of you dabble in […]Continue Reading →
Inspiration struck yesterday, whilst working away at my desk. Well, I will properly attribute the inspiration to Leigh, who admitted to resisting the impulse to put potato chips on my Hell Yes! Cake Bars. Instantly I thought of chocolate-covered potato chips. Then my mind moved on to chocolate-covered potato chips on a stick […]Continue Reading →
I love making muffins and cookies and cakes. And brownies. And bread. Who am I kidding, if it goes in the oven, I’m in love!
But every once in awhile, an odd sort of inspiration strikes. This week was an example of it and I think I’ve invented my new favorite breakfast treat.
Typically, I’m much more […]Continue Reading →

I love pistachios and I love chocolate and I love chewy, nummy oatmeal cookies. Isn’t […]Continue Reading →
I’m not above bribery to try and excuse my long blog absence.
I’m really not.
So, I come bearing cake. Not just any cake, but a festive, spicy, tastes-so-jolly-you’ll-be-spiking-the-soy-nog-and-belting-out-carols-while-you-bake-it Bundt cake. It doesn’t get any better than that.
I usually revel in the pumpkin run up to Thanksgiving, cramming it into every nook and […]Continue Reading →
Wowie. This month has just barreled along!
I am in Minnesota. Boxes are (mostly) unpacked. Kitties are no longer terrified of being stuffed in a cat carrier and are fat and playful. Flour has been flung. Baked goods have been made. The air is chilly and warm lattes and hot cocoa are being consumed in copious […]Continue Reading →
