Busy, Busy, Busy!

It feels like forever since I’ve posted something.  Maybe it’s because it’s been almost two weeks!  I certainly didn’t expect my hiatus to be this long.  I typically go into hiding for a couple of weeks around Thanksgiving to begin my holiday baking for edith+ethel, my little cookie company, but I suffered another setback by…

Butternut Squash Pie

Omg, I can’t believe I’ve been home sick for a week! And so close to the holiday! I’m really bummed because, in addition to not being able to post last week, I was unable to try version four of an apple butter pie recipe that I was really looking forward to posting for Thanksgiving and…

Liege Waffles

I’ve only made Liege Waffles once before, using the most authentic recipe I could find.  I absolutely loved them, but I wanted to make them again trying a different recipe.  The previous recipe required the dough to sit overnight and I wanted them right away.  Honestly, I was curious to know if there would be…

Friday Things

Don’t worry, this isn’t a political post.  If found that after living in DC for about 5 years, I’ve become slightly more patriotic and wanted to acknowledge Veterans Day.  I’ve thanked a few already this morning. What a week’s it’s been with the election!  Ok, that’s all I’m going to say. I’m continuing to focus my…

Old Fashioned Mini Glazed Yeast Doughnuts

What do you do when you’re watching a tense election and have nervous energy to burn?  Make old fashioned mini glazed yeast doughnuts!  I can’t think of a time when I’m not in the mood for doughnuts.  They’re quietly becoming their own food group for me.  Since I making doughnuts occurred spontaneously while watching the…

Skillet Biscuit Cinnamon Rolls

Welcome to entry 1086 of neurotic baker’s breakfast posts!  I’m really starting to feel like a breakfast blog.  Well really part breakfast, part I-never-went-to-the-store-during-the-week-and-what-do-I-have-in-my-cupboard-to-make-for-breakfast-and-hopefully-be-able-to-post, post. In this case, I was down to biscuits. Miles wasn’t really in the mood for scones and if I’m going to have biscuits, I have to have honey (which we…

Friday Things

As I walked to the Metro this morning, I could hear the leaves crunching beneath my feet while wearing my headphones.  Although it was in the 70s yesterday, it’s finally looking like fall.  I love walking through crunchy leaves and watching the colors change.  The picture above is from a day trip last year when…

Swizzler

I love food trucks. Correction, I love the concept of food trucks. I even thought of starting one myself, but I don’t eat at food trucks. Until now. Thanks to all the foodies on Instagram, I saw the most mouthwatering hot dog and tracked it down. It belonged to Swizzler. A food truck. I followed…

Pretzel Dogs

I’ve really been into hot dogs lately and pretzels, so I decided to try to make my own pretzel dogs.  Honestly, I really wanted to make pretzels but didn’t want to sit around just eating bread.  So I thought about adding a super nutritious hot dog!  Actually, you could use any type of dog or sausage…

Kinship

During my mother’s visit, we were lucky enough to have a girl’s night out.  Miles was invited to a birthday sleepover, so it was time for us to hit the town.  We must have spent an hour on Yelp reviewing menus trying to decide where to go.  We both had particular tastes and they didn’t…
