I am not a fan of pumpkin pie or French toast, yet, somehow I ate two servings of this and didn’t hate it. After Thanksgiving I was given a few slices of pumpkin pie to take home. I’m not a pumpkin pie fan — it’s the texture that bugs me, not the taste — but … More Pumpkin Pie Baked French Toast.
Though I did recently make a variation on this Finnish flatbread, my oven and stove haven’t seen much action recently. That doesn’t mean I haven’t had great meals. In the past few weeks I’ve visited an Ohio City staple, Market Garden Brewery, which was exceptional as always; stopped for a kick ass burger at Fox & Hound … More Stove off. Travel on.

Stayed cool for two more, and then more rain. East central Indiana is a soggy, muddy mess. Spring has to stop this toying game. I … More Scones and Lenten goals.
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.
