Carrot Cake, Take Two

Yeah, to make a simple carrot cake, that I have even made before, it took me TWO tries. Whaaa? It was one of my friend’s birthdays on Saturday, and she loved the carrot cake that I had made for Thanksgiving here – it’s just not your normal run of the mill sort of cake found … 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

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

Hello world!

I’m WAY into the world of food blogs, and am relatively obsessed with baking. So why not start my own blog??
