18 Dec Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Christmas Prep Edition

It’s hard not to notice a holiday that screams at you starting in August and doesn’t really let up until January, but somehow you always feel that you have all of this time and then, very suddenly, the days have melted away and you’ve bought maybe three presents and thought a little bit about a cheese you want to get for your Christmas menu and. . .OH NO IT’S NEXT WEEK?!   Never fear.

04 Dec Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Hanukkah Edition

  In case it’s not on your calendar, darlings, do know that Hanukkah starts this coming Sunday and that latkes are a perfect delicious food because potatoes are a perfect delicious food (note that I have thrown you off by picturing apple fritters above, instead of latkes).

30 Nov Caramel-Filled Cranberry and Orange Mallowmars

So often, boss lady will make something at the bakery, and I will step back and think to myself, why have I never tried that–the perks of working as a pastry cook lie far beyond never-ending access to pastries, afterall. I’ll come home, tinker with some recipes, try and put my own twist on it, and then finally bite in. And then I share it here.   I think Rebecca has caught on as one…

30 Nov Fiskars Project Orange Thumb 2015

This year, I have had the honor of being a part of Fiskars Project Orange Thumb. A grant organized to help communities build, cultivate, and maintain a usable garden.

An initiative that fosters relationships within the community, while promoting wholesome living, is a…

20 Nov Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Thanksgiving Prep

The world can be a pretty terrible place when it wants to be, my darlings.

Hush up and enjoy your maple syrup and new Prime Minister.)  …

06 Nov Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Nacho Edition

Ah yes, it is fall here in the Northern Hemisphere, and with the recent time change to remind us that we’re no longer famers (and that the true rulers of our lives are our children and pets to whom a time change is meaningless) nothing embraces the season quite like. . .nachos?   Happy National Nachos Day, darlings!   I’m sure I can find some fall-themed nachos out there and also some regular ones for…
