Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Clafoutis

By |April 24th, 2014|

If you’re noticing some technical difficulties around here, you aren’t alone. Just bear with me please and don’t freak out if things are looking weird. (Like recipes missing…..)

This is advice I could have really used last night after an enormous tech-related meltdown. I just feel so inept when I can’t fix issues with my site […]

Caramel Apple Calzones

By |December 27th, 2013|

I hope everyone had a relaxing and joyful holiday!

We spent Christmas Eve and Day at the in-laws’ house, which has become our tradition.  They have a family party Christmas Eve night, then we sleep over and open presents on Christmas morning.  In earlier years, we would then shove off to another relatives’ house for dinner, […]

Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond Clusters

By |December 20th, 2013|

It’s been great working with walking distance of a mall.  I can go people-watching during my lunch break and join the cohort of elderly mall walkers when it’s raining out.

Right now though, it’s a bit of a nightmare.  I had to run over there yesterday to deposit a check at the ATM, and nearly got […]

Brown Butter Pear Crisp

I am writing this post on a chilly Sunday evening in Vermont, snuggled up by the fire in our B&B room.

So far, our trip has been wonderfully low-key, and we’ve amused ourselves by putzing around to local shops and eateries.  You do not want to know how many “specialty Vermont products” we have purchased in […]

Vanilla Bean & Sea Salt Caramel Apples

By |October 21st, 2013|

Mondays need a little something sweet.

Now that I’m back at work full-time, I’m finding myself flying into food blog panic mode on the weekends.  And I don’t like it.

While my new job isn’t nearly as stressful (thus far…knock on wood) as my last one, I want to make sure I don’t fall into the bad […]

Chocolate Strawberry Pavlova Trifles

By |September 16th, 2013|

Last Friday, I talked about what sometimes happens on the reverse side of the pretty pictures.  About how frustrating and hectic life can be despite the serenely manicured photos you see here.

The story behind today’s recipe falls kind of along the same theme—turning a kitchen failure into something new and workable.

A few weekends ago, we […]

Nectarine Crumble with Sesame

By |September 6th, 2013|

You may notice a pattern developing.  It’s called unload-all-those-recipes-about-stone-fruit-in-a-hurry before fall really gets here and posting about peaches becomes, well, strange.

Or nectarines.  So please excuse the back to back peach/nectarine business, but this recipe is too good to put in the archives until next summer.  I didn’t make many fruit-centric desserts this summer like crisps […]
