Breakfast has never been my favorite meal. Don’t get me wrong, all the foods associated with breakfast are amazing. I just wish breakfast came later, preferably after I’ve had a good amount of sleep. Just another way to say that I’m one of those people who hit snooze as many times possible before actually being late for … More Berry Beet Banana Nice Cream
In the northern hemisphere we have officially crossed the hump into summer. It’s all baseball, watermelon and eating outdoors from now until September. When the grocer put peaches on sale the other week, I knew grilled fruit was about to commence. I also had this song in my head, which probably played a role in … More Summer grilled peaches.
When I think of pudding I mostly think of pudding cups. You know the ones that come in packs of four and feature the strongest plastic lid glue ever. I swear I learned to cuss trying to open those little buggers. But in an adult world eating those pre-packaged, and likely preservative laden, treats is … More Cardamom Rice Pudding
Haven’t cooked much lately. I did make banana nut scones recently. It seems scones are a big part of my culinary repertoire. I’ve done cranberry, carrot cake, and chocolate ginger. I’ve also made fresh strawberry scones but I didn’t blog about them. Anyway, our propane grill recently completely died and it forced us to dig … More S’more comin’ soon!
Saturdays are many things to many people. For some it is the designated day for errands like shopping, visiting the pharmacy and returning library books. For others it is when they can finally get in that activity they’ve been meaning to do during the week, like a morning run or yoga class. Saturday means freedom. … More Saturday: a day made for good food.
I made a pie in December. It was apple. I’m not a pie person, but I figured I share the photos anyway. I followed Ina Garten’s recipe for “Deep-Dish Apple Pie.” I ate a slice, but it didn’t help that I hate baked apples. It was OK, but I preferred the vanilla ice cream that … More Apple pie from someone who doesn’t like apple pie.
Thursday it was my turn to host book club. My book for “The Classic Challenge” was Thomas Hardy’s “Tess of the D’Urbervilles.” Like Emily Brontë’s “Wuthering Heights,” “Tess” is a romantic tragedy. But “Tess” actually has characters who are likable and have souls. Moving on, the real reason behind this “Challenge” book club – other … More Homemade whipped cream. Enough said.
Over the weekend I listened to Christmas music and watched way too many made for TV Christmas-themed movies. What can I say, I’m a sucker for a good marathon. I can’t count all the times I’ve been pulled into watching hours of “NCIS” or “Criminal Minds,” despite them being repeats from three seasons ago. Moving … More Sharing the love: gifting recipes.
So, it’s October. Holy crap. Time flies when you’re working. It also flies when you’re not working. I’ve graduated from school and now I am looking for a job. But that’s not what I want to talk about. Lets talk baking. Crisp is my favorite way to describe the season we call fall. It’s also … More Baking is in the air.
