17 Aug The Fanciest PB&J Cake Ever

Plus a Recipe For The Best White Cake Ever     I love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I always have. I’ve been around for nearly thirty years and in all that time, I’ve found myself munching on the sweet, nutty sandwich for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, desserts, and often, simply, out of pure boredom. It’s a universal fact that carbon is the keystone for life. I think it’s the PB&J–ok, not really. But you…

14 Aug Your Weekly Internet Spoils: S’mores Edition

I can’t even keep up with all these “holidays” anymore my darlings. I simply saw a lot of people shoving s’mores on into their faces on Instagram on Monday and decided that all of us could use some marshmallow-based treats to take us into the weekend, even if the “official” day was over. (It was apparently also National Lazy Day on Monday, and I for one am offended that we were not all notified in time to…

07 Aug Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Simple Edition

Darlings it is the first week of August, the week that hangs heavy and slow over that gradual drop from the oppressive heat of late summer into the gentle coolness of fall. (Then depending on where you live things barrel into an unforgiving winter that lasts decades.)   For that reason alone I’ve kept things nice and simple this week.   Shall we?   To consume and imbibe   I have for you this simple,…

31 Jul Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Ice Cream Sandwich Edition

I do not know, my darlings, what mysterious shrouded council sets all of these National Food Days, but I have to say I am very much enjoying using them as excuses to indulge in delicious themes every week. I hope very much that you are also (feel free to voice your praise or displeasure at any time, and it is likely that three weeks later I will remember to check the comments and respond because…

17 Jul Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Ice Cream Edition

National Ice Cream Day is this coming Sunday, my darlings, and obviously we must prepare ourselves with all manner of frozen, seasonally appropriate goodness.

10 Jul Your Weekly Internet Spoils: Bastille Day Edition

How terribly convenient, darlings, that Bastille Day happens so soon after our own Independence Day and that our flags share the same colors.   So break out those red, white, and blue recipes you didn’t get a chance to use last weekend, but pair them with a beret, striped shirt, and whatever other gross stereotypes of France you can think of, and let’s commemorate the beginning of the French Revolution!   To consume and imbibe…

03 Jul Your Weekly Internet Spoils: America Edition

It is America’s birthday, my darlings, and so I have the inevitable torrent of red, white, and blue related things to share with you that frankly you could pretend were British or French or Australian or Cambodian one of the many other flags on this earth that uses the very same color motif.   Oh dear. I suppose I better finish this post before the America Police come for me. I’ve compared us to France…

The summer solstice happened and so the tyranny of the calendar declares that it is OFFICIALLY SUMMER.

Just bookmark this for your weird Summer-in-December thing you have happening six months from now. Wait. Do your…
