Everything’s finally coming up spring around here, you guys! (Read: I’m totally ignoring the snow forecast for today.) We planted our first herb garden ever over the weekend and hung up string lights on the balcony. We had our first meal al fresco and the husband went for his first bike ride of the season [...]
Obviously this post is just another excuse for me to eat dessert for breakfast. Because I mean, when you think of yogurt, you think of breakfast. When you think of strawberries, you think of chocolate-covered strawberries. So when you think of strawberry yogurt, you think of dark chocolate-covered strawberry crepes. At least, that’s where my [...]
Well, it happened. I officially have a new favorite doughnut. I didn’t think this was possible, you see. For years, my heart and my taste buds were torn between the chocolate glazed cake doughnut and the strawberry-frosted yeast doughnut (with sprinkles, of course). Sometimes, even the Boston cream doughnut would wedge itself in there, as [...]
It’s the final countdown, ladies and gentlefolk — have you figured out your food-related Easter plans? In case brunch is still a work in progress, mayhaps you’ll consider making these pancakes of the rainbow and Easter-shaped variety. Bunnies and flowers and all the colors of the rainbow = win win WIN.
The Easter pancake fun continues! When life gives you pancake batter, you make Easter egg pancakes. Or at least that’s how it goes in my book. Especially because it’s a really good excuse to put frosting and sprinkles on your breakfast.
Oh yes, I totally went there. I turned my pancakes into a bunny butt and it was delicious. And weird. And delicious. And fun. And delicious. When Bisquick and Tablespoon asked me to create a few Easter-themed pancake recipes for them, I was ALL. OVER. IT. Seriously? You want me to make pancakes? Like a [...]
I complain about it from time to time, but I like being an adult. I like doing adult things — like buying and eating ice cream whenever I want to (and getting to choose the flavor, too — bliss!). Or going on road trips whenever and wherever I want to (and not having to sit [...]
It’s about that time of year. It’s about that time of year when I go into hermit mode and don’t leave my apartment for days (unless it’s for the mail. Or ice cream). It’s about that time of year when I wonder if the sun is ever going to show its face again (though I [...]
Make way for my lovely guest poster, Natalie! I might be biased (she is my sister in law, after all) but Natalie makes some of the most amazingly delicious gluten-free baked goods I’ve ever tasted in my life. MY LIFE. Being that I’m a very far cry from her level in the gluten-free baking world, [...]
So… this is not what I intended to make. You know how they say when life gives you persimmons, make chai-spiced coconut pear bread? Oh, they don’t? Well that’s what I heard the other day. Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, I bought persimmons for the first time in my life. [...]
So… this happened. And I am oh so glad it did. You see, for me, the day after Christmas is kind of a downer. All the presents have been unwrapped, Jesus has been born and we’ve already eaten all the delicious Christmas cookies/ham/wine our bellies could handle. The trees and twinkle lights and decked halls [...]
Say you just moved six hours away from your old roost to a new one (with so much light! off the lake! and a weird creature that swims in it that we have yet to identify!). Say you’d recently gone a few days without shaving your legs or painting your nails (this is real talk. [...]
Look at this. Thanksgiving hasn’t even happened yet and I’ve already got leftovers on the brain. Here’s the thing — the holiday is tomorrow. You’ve already got everything planned and ready to roll (and if not, this should help you out). You’re already dreaming of turkey and mashed potatoes in your sleep. You don’t need [...]
So there’s this thing coming up next week. I think they call it Thanksgiving. Anyway, it’s a pretty big deal, when a lot of family and friends gather around the table for gratitude, good conversation and a great meal. And some of us might be hosting it, and some of us not, but we’re moving [...]
