Pumpkin Cheesecake Brown Butter Blondies

By |October 15th, 2014|

Don’t even ask where I’ve been.

You really don’t want to know.  Between being completely uninspired and perfectly content to eat crackers and fruit for dinner to finding out that the house I love for its immense windows and skylights gets either blindingly direct sunlight or tree obscured shade (neither of which is conducive to food […]

Mini Whole Wheat Blueberry Bundt Cakes with an Almond Glaze

By |September 8th, 2014|

Last weekend I went out to a local orchard with my dear friend KA and her boyfriend Bran.

I was rather shocked to discover that the blueberry bushes still had some little gems clinging for life, even though most of the other pickers that afternoon (an older crowd, you could say) had a lot of difficulty finding […]

Triple Berry Maple Cake

By |August 28th, 2014|

After a little time at home, I’m back on the road.

Thankfully this trip is going to be much shorter than my last stint in Baltimore; I’m in Pittsburgh this time, but only for two days.  The short and sweet trip is definitely more my speed, as being an extreme homebody away from home always makes […]

Miso Soba Noodle Soup

By |August 14th, 2014|

I know I disappeared for a while there.
I always feel a bit guilty letting my blog pages gather dust, but sometimes I’m just not in the best space for creating content, both literally and figuratively.  There’ve been a lot of changes and flux in my life recently, and sadly, Bashful Bao got shoved to […]

White Chocolate Carrot Cake Blondies with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

By |July 21st, 2014|

I’ve heard people say that children grow up in an instant.

You’re cradling your baby gently in your arms one moment, and the next, they’re dashing about on their own, a whirlwind of childhood glory.  Before you know it, they’re all grown up and independent and on their own, navigating the world as young adults.

Or so […]

Miso Infused Carrot Hummus

By |July 14th, 2014|

Over the weekend, Luke and I attended a graduation party for my last friend to graduate from college.  I now officially know absolutely no one still in college….that’s the kind of realization to make a girl feel her age.

My friend has a very large multi-cultural family (of which I am just a pinch jealous) and […]

Banana Maple Sugar Cinnamon Rolls

By |July 11th, 2014|

We got the right dishwasher this time!!

Unfortunately in our backwards kitchen, the old dishwasher could be plugged into an outlet (the new one needs to be hard wired) and the old cooktop was hardwired (the new one needs an outlet).  *Sigh* The saga continues.  I’m hoping all this will be wrapped up by next […]

Creamy Sweet Pea Soup with Za’atar

By |July 9th, 2014|

Does anyone else get frustrated by appliance deliveries?

Here’s a nightmare for you—Sears has been to our house 3 times already.  The first time, they delivered our wall oven, fridge and gas cooktop, but only set up the fridge.  We had to have someone else come and install the others.  (The cooktop still needs electrical work and […]

Blueberry Almond White Chocolate Chip Cookies

By |July 7th, 2014|

I think it’s safe to say that at this point, we are more or less settled in at the new house.

There have been some things to get used to, like not having a working cooktop or dishwasher, finding ants and mosquitoes in really random places and listening to the goats who live down the street […]

Dah House

By |June 25th, 2014|

Hey darlings.

Don’t worry, I’m still alive.  Moving out to the countryside has not led to us being devoured by wolves or ravenous deer; at least not yet.

It’s been peaceful out here, that’s for sure.  We’ve got a friendly bluebird who begs for food, some pretty awesome neigh-bors and a wonderful view to drive by on […]
