Bacon Waffles

I’m beginning to think that I should change my blog from baking to all breakfast.  That’s all I seem to be doing lately.  I’m not going to lie.  I’ve been extremely busy recently (and my budget’s been a little tight), so I haven’t done anything too fancy.  But if there is something I always have…

Friday Things

What a good start to a Friday.  Last night Miles played in his first fall concert.  He joined the jazz band this year and is playing the saxophone. I should clarify,  Miles picked up the sax for the first time in June and now he just finished his first concert and his first solo.  Talk about…

Honey Pumpkin Biscuits

Ok, so this is my last pumpkin recipe of the season.  Promise!  I just had half a can of pumpkin left and couldn’t let it go to waste, so I whipped up these honey pumpkin biscuits.  I also have to say that this recipe is more of a review than a thoroughly tested, good to…

Alpha Pie House

A couple of weeks ago, on my way to a food truck, my friend and I spotted Alpha Pie House.  We thought it was a dessert/pie shop, but as we got a little closer we discovered it was really an authentic Greek pie shop.  I went in to grab a menu, but they didn’t have any,…

Pumpkin Waffles

I actually thought I was done with pumpkin until I found another can in the cupboard, so get ready for two more pumpkin recipes!  So far out of everything I’ve made with pumpkin, I never use more than half a can, so I automatically have to make two recipes. This time I decided to make…

Friday Things

By Friday, I’m impatiently waiting for 5pm, and looking forward to one of these with my friends after work.  Right now I’d like to say “make it a double”! It’s been quite a week. One that is testing my personal strength and will possibly shape the person I will become in the future. That’s a lot!!!…

French Frychos

A few weeks ago I tried tater tot nachos for the first time.  I literally thought I died and gone to heaven.  There were so many of my favorite things in one bowl.  Tater tots, beans, sour cream, cheese, and bacon. It was like magic.  When I came home and told Miles about it, he…

DGS Delicatessen

DGS Delicatessen is my favorite deli in DC. Ok, so it’s the only deli I’ve been to and I use the term deli loosely because it’s more of an artisan deli. There isn’t anything on the menu that I’ve tried so far that I haven’t liked. Their corned beef and pastrami are cut differently from…

Chocolate Babka

I’m taking a little break from my new found pumpkin obsession, but I’m still really into baking with yeast right now.  I think it may have something to do with fall, although it is going to be 80° today!  This weekend  I  tried my hands again at chocolate babka.  I thought it would be the…

Friday Things

This stromboli was the highlight of my week.  It came from a wonderful woman who is headmaster at a private school.  The students wanted to support breast cancer and my company lit our towers pink for the month of October.  In addition to thank you flowers and chocolate, she also made homemade stromboli.  12 of them!…

Mango Tree

Since my office moved approximately two blocks from our original location, it’s become increasingly difficult to find a place to eat for lunch.  Walking back to our old area seems too far (no judging) and the food trucks are just beginning to discover the park across from our building as a great place to camp out. …

Classic Pumpkin Bread

One of my dear friends sent me a text the other day asking if I had a good pumpkin bread recipe.  I had to admit that I didn’t.  For years, I’ve been buying Trader Joe’s pumpkin bread mix.  It’s the only mix I’ll buy.  She also uses it but wanted to make something from scratch.  Of…
