Eating and Road-Tripping to Maine

Last weekend, my friend and I went on our first trip to Maine.  I’ve always wanted to go and now that I’m back on the East Coast, there’s so much for me to take advantage of. Most of my trip revolved around eating.  I’m going to have to work out twice as much now that…

Spring. Finally! Well after tomorrow.

It’s the day before spring and this is what it looks like outside the window at work.  It’s been snowing off and on all morning, but I hear that it’s going to be 60 degrees tomorrow, so our first day of spring may actually arrive with spring weather. During the week I post recipes on…

A special note to my WordPress.com followers

To all of my followers, some who have been with me from the beginning and some who started following me just a week ago, I have a bit of news. As of April 9th, WordPress.com will no longer direct you to my self-hosted site. I hope that you have enjoyed my recipes and I invite…

Merry Christmas!

  Wishing you and yours a very Merry, and yummy, Christmas!          

DIY Book Christmas Tree

This has been a tricky year for planning the Christmas holiday. My son is going to spend the holiday with his dad and I was planning to go to my parents’ house in Michigan. Unfortunately scheduling issues got in the way and I’m going to be spending Christmas at home and my parents are going…

Saturday Morning Coffee and Links

Last week I started Favorite Links Friday, and I’ve decided to change it already!  It’s really all about the Saturday.  I wake up early on Saturday mornings and have a little quiet time.  I make a little coffee and think about all the things I want to bake for the next week.  I also like…

Old Recipes

One of my favorite people in the office just turned 90 years old the other day.  We had a party at the office in her honor.  She’s like my office “bff”.  Her office is just outside of where I sit, so we tend to chat a lot.  I call her my office “best friend forever”…

Fanny Farmer Cookbook

I’m making hoe cakes this weekend and I’ve been having trouble finding an authentic recipe. Hoe cakes go by many names and depending on the region, different recipes.  I was having this discussion with my 89 year old BFF coworker.  She’s from Texas and has never heard of hoe cakes, johnny cakes, hot water cornbread…

Race Car Peeps

This is happening in my office.  Right.  Now.  If we’re playing with food at 8am, I can only imagine what the office is going to be like at noon.

My Kitsch-en

I’m not sure if I should start with an apology for the pictures, or to say that this is my ode to Julia Child (definitely pictures, you’ll see when you scroll down).  I recently transferred all of my photos to Google +, or as I say, “Google + or: How I  Learned to Stop Worrying…

Busy Baking

  Hello All!!  First I’d like to say thanks so much for following me!  Blogging has been such an interesting experience.     Right now I’m going to need your patience.  This is the beginning of my busy season for edith + ethel (working on a Squarespace site as I type), my cookie business.  At…
