My apologies dear readers for the delay. This season has been a busy one, but with Christmas only a week away, and all of my gifts now safely in transit or arrived at their various locations, I am able to finally breathe and get back to a more normalized schedule! Oh, and did I mention … Continue reading On Baked Apples (aka. Rainy Day Away Apples)
With the change in weather now in full effect, the sweaters have come out, the scarfs have been arranged, and there's usually a cup of tea in my hand while I'm cooking in my comfy pants (oh yes, I am more or less cooking in my yoga pants and pjs because I like to be … Continue reading On Roasted Chili-Lime Cod
Okay, I lied. No chocolate cake this time, but I had had so much chocolate the last few weeks, I needed a reprieve. So I turned to fruit, and one of my FAVORITE desserts of all time: Crumble. I LOVE CRUMBLE. The tart sweetness of the fruit, with the crunchy, sugary top? I mean, you … Continue reading On “Just Get Off Your Butt & Bake” Apple Raspberry Crumble

I'm telling … Continue reading On Chocolate Chip Cookies: The Final Chapter [OR IS IT?!]
So, I wasn't expecting to expand my cookbook shelf so soon, but as I was perusing Barnes & Noble for a couple copies of Goodnight Moon for a couple of couples I know who are expecting (it's my most favorite children's book ever, so it's one of my go to gifts), I figured I would check … Continue reading On Fantastic Finds & Mini Cheesecakes
It's baking time! Last week's brownies were a big hit, so I thought this week, since Frankie was craving them just a little, I would make Oatmeal Raisin cookies! Not the most complicated thing to make, but I'm working up to it! My hope is, one day, I'll be making adult birthday cakes (or Funfetti … Continue reading On Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
And I started those aforementioned brownies around 9pm...yeah, I did that, AND I cooked, because we needed dinner too, but I late night baked, which I now believe is the best kind of baking! There's something really satisfying about ending your day on a sweet note, the feel of flour soft on your hands in … Continue reading Wednesday Night Delight: Brownies from Scratch!
