Decorated Owl cookie

I've mentioned before that I have been making cookies. A lot of cookies. I perfected an awesome shortbreadish recipe and fell in love. And then came the awesome brownie cookie recipe. The dough tastes like a Tootsie Roll and the finished product? Chewy, chocolaty awesomeness...and I don't even like chocolate. After that, I created an Orange-Cardamom shortbreadish cookie based ...

A few months ago I got on a cookie making kick. My experience in cookie making up to that point was basically...welp, I had no experience. I also didn't know how to make royal icing or even what goes into making royal icing. Piping bags made me shudder and why would you want to frost a ...

Simple Syrup recipe

Even though I have a whole category dedicated to Food and Drink, I haven't posted a recipe for Simple Syrup (It's included in a lot of cocktail recipes so I'm a bit chagrined to have overlooked this.). Simple Syrup isn't just for drinks. It's used in all sorts of recipes and comes in handy for sweetening cold ...

Homemade Instant Pancake Mix

Believe it or not, your pancakes won’t stick to your pan if the pan is hot enough. Promise. I made 12 of these bad boys Saturday and not a one stuck. I didn’t think it was possible either but I listened to the wise man who is Alton Brown and he didn’t let me down. Here’s ...

Dr. Wyches Yellow Tomato

Last year's garden was all that awesome. The soil an idiot at Lowe's recommended to me was essentially softwood and "wood products" mulch which caused weird deficiencies in the plants and when paired with me planting all of my seedlings too early...well... Eventually the garden got its act together and the plants started to rally; that took ...

Easy Chocolate Yogurt Cookies

I'm not a big fan of sweets or chocolate; bacon and ribeyes are my idea of comfort food. Something tells me my "girl card" is in danger of being revoked. But I could eat these cookies all day long. They're a little crisp around the edges and gooey in the middle and are heaven when they're ...

Personal Sized Crustless Quiche Recipe

One of the many things I stressed about as I was preparing myself for Cara to start kindergarten was breakfast. I wanted her to eat something more than sugary cereal--which I worried wouldn't keep her full--but I didn't want to have to wake up any earlier than absolutely necessary. Enter make ahead and freeze breakfast stuff.

2012 has come to a close and now we're on to 2013. I can vividly remember it being 1990. I feel quite old all of a sudden. We've been in the house a year now. Cara started school. Tucker's almost done with his. I got offered a job. I found my biological mother and siblings. ...
