As I’ve said a million times before, I love all things cinnamon-y, and snickerdoodles are no exception. I had thought about making them here in Spain quite a few times, but almost all the recipes I found had cream of tartar – something which I can’t seem to find here. Maybe it’s somewhere…or maybe it’s … Continue reading

Playing Catch-up

I have no idea what happens to time. It’s like it gets sucked into some vortex, never to be seen again. Such is its nature I suppose! I have been baking and cooking, but now have fallen so far behind, I figured I could use one post to recap and be all caught up. So … Continue reading

TWD: Pecan Powder Puffs

I decided to make these during a marathon baking day in early March – I was baking a making a bunch of things, and somehow in the middle of it all, I neglected to see that flour was an ingredient. I know. It’s listed in the ingredients, it’s referred to in the instructions, and yet … Continue reading

TWD: Chewy, Chunky Blondies

I heart blondies. Me and them? We see eye to eye. We get along. It’s love-love. I made these and took them with me to the beach for a bachelorette party and somehow, in the massive piles of food that got stacked up on the kitchen counter, they got  buried. That is, until 3am when … Continue reading

TWD: Chockablock Cookies

This weekend I had the pleasure of having my mom in town for a visit. We had a marvelous time – did dinner and a show Friday night (for anyone in the DC area, I would highly recommend Little Shop of Horrors), and tooled around for much of the day on Saturday doing the Georgetown … Continue reading

Good Old Fashioned Toll House Pie

It is the Monday after Easter and I have a belly ache. No, it is not surprising…I shouldn’t even be close to surprised that my stomach is totally unsure how to process what I shoveled into it yesterday to celebrate breaking my Lenten sacrifice. I mean, after 40 days, it has forgotten what to do … Continue reading
