It was worth the wait. This cake has been on my list to bake for so long and finally I got around to baking it……well, that’s not quite the whole truth. My son made it! He made it for a class project for school. This is the classic foreign language project where you make a […]

It has been a less than stellar week. I have a cold. It has prevented any amount of productivity that I had planned for the past week. I have some articles that I need to write, but when I have a head cold my brain slows down and words just seem to get stuck in […]

I love fall. It is my favorite season. September is when I come alive and cook and clean and get all organized. Maybe it is the whole back to school thing – a new beginning sort of; I’m not quite sure. Maybe it’s the cool, crisp mornings that seem to get me motivated. Whatever the […]

It’s getting crazy here. Lots of lists, lots of shopping trips and last minute preparations as we prepare two children for college. The dining room table is disappearing under the load of dorm essentials that must be bought for the freshman boy. Sous Chef needs little assistance as she stores most of her items off-campus […]

It won’t be easy. Sending my second child off to college. It doesn’t matter that I have already been down that road with Sous Chef. My oldest child, and only daughter, left for college three years ago. I cried before she left, I sobbed when I had to tell her goodbye and I quietly wept […]

I am camping out…. ..on the couch watching the Olympics. I am not alone. Our whole family is sitting on the edge of their seats as we cheer on Team USA. All this cheering and yelling requires a lot of energy, so we need to have the proper snackage. I love snack mixes and snacking […]

Sous Chef here, back home for the last bit of summer! I had a great experience at my museum internship, but I really lacked the right equipment and stock ingredients to bake while I was away. That being said, ten whole weeks without baking was both gloomy and inspiring! I made up for it by […]
