Brownies are my favorite. I’ve already shared a couple of brownie recipes here in the past, but there’s always room for one more, right? Continue reading
Let’s not mention the little fact that it’s been, uh, exactly three weeks and two days since my last post, okay? Sorry guys! First I had that broken lens situation, and then I came home (!!!!!), and all of that adds up to no blog posts for you. (See here and here if you’re unfamiliar with how this has looked in the past.)
I’ll try to make up for it by sharing [what I think is some of] the best coffee ice cream ever. Continue reading
Watermelon lemonade will always be a favorite. Also cherry limeade. Iced coffee is great too, even if it isn’t fizzy. I’m looking forward to exploring even more fun flavors this spring/summer. Continue reading
As far as I’m concerned, the only way to even think about serving crêpes to more people than just yourself is to make them well in advance. Follow this advice and you will enjoy a peaceful existence. Disregard it and suffer. Okay, maybe it’s not quite that bad, but seriously. Have you ever tried to make crêpes in real time? It’s stressful!
Here’s the proper approach: Continue reading
It’s been too cold to photograph anything to share on here lately, and I’m not just saying that. I would seriously get frostbite, and that fact can be corroborated by the national weather service, or whoever it is that gets to state “truth” about the weather.
So today is the perfect day to share a recipe that I made a few weeks ago but never posted! These cute little things are from this month’s issue of Bon Appetit magazine, and when I came across them on the first read-through, I ran to the freezer to see if I still had some hazelnuts on hand. I had the exact amount called for, and if that’s not a sign then I don’t know what is. Continue reading
It occurred to me that a brief perusal of this blog would lead you to believe that I basically only ever eat sweet things and carb-y things. I mean, 1/5 of the first page of recent posts fits into either or both of those categories.
Simply- that is not all I eat. In reality, I practically eat my weight in salad each week, and then I eat my weight again in miscellaneous fruits and vegetables at breakfast and dinner. I eat a lot of tacos too, but that’s irrelevant for our purposes today. Continue reading
But really, there’s a lot to love about this time of year. Continue reading
So cold that I had to wear socks with my Birkenstocks three days in a row.
So cold that I’m legitimately scared to Google the 10-day forecast.
So cold that when I went outside to shoot the photos you are currently looking at, my fingers went numb, my camera lens frosted over, and the caramel hardened on the plate. It’s all so wrong.
I racked my brain and came up with five positives in the midst of this gloominess:
Positive 01 / Socks and Birkenstocks can actually be fun.
Positive 02 / Coffee is good and coffee is hot.
Positive 03 / Dad makes really great fires.
Positive 04 / There’s no shame in leaving the oven on forever (read: bake your heart out).
Positive 05 / I don’t have to worry that ice cream will melt on the way home from the store. Continue reading
Two Saturdays ago at the farmers’ market, Micah and I picked up a delicata squash, among other things. As I was preparing it to be roasted one night, I decided to set the seeds aside. I had just read an article on Food52 about things to do with them, and I hate throwing away edible food. Continue reading
