Oh Peanut Butter

Today is a special occassion– Paul’s classmate Caleb is having his thesis show. He’s the first of the grads to exhibit. Hooray! Since it was also his birthday a couple of days ago (and he neglected to tell anyone!) I wanted to make some cupcakes for the opening.
But not just any cupcakes. Mini chocolate cupcakes with [...]

Yum, Version 2.

If there’s one thing I know it’s that I need to eat good food even when I’m busy. We have weeks where almost every meal is eaten out of the house, and they drive me nuts! Yuck. And I daresay that our sometimes strangely stocked pantry has made me get a little more creative.

Tonight I [...]


I made some mac’n’cheese this weekend and baked it in my new ceramic dishes. It was delicious– and something about eating it in dishes I made myself made it extra yummy!

Weekend Cooking

Paul and I have been eating out a lot. And when not eating out, the frozen meals have been gracing our table. I think we’ve both had enough– but I didn’t exactly feel like cooking. But this weekend we went to the grocery store to freshen up our stock and I made some fresh pesto, [...]

Happy Love Day

Here I am, sliding in under the wire (let’s face it: just barely, since most of you are not on mountain time) with my V-day well wishes. I had such good intentions this year. I bought a pack of cards in January, kept reminding myself to send them, and….well, no, it didn’t happen.  I love [...]

Banana Nut Bread

I’ve had a serious hankering to bake lately, probably due to everyone’s lovely blog posts ….and maybe also to temperatures in the tens. This weekend I made some yummy banana nut bread from my mom’s recipe.

In addition to my two bread pans, I scooped some batter into these heart shaped foil tins so I could [...]

Dinner Challenge

I haven’t been participating in Carrie’s Dinner Challenge, mainly because there isn’t any food in the house and the grocery store seems far away. But last night I was really  hungry, kind of bored, and didn’t want to eat another fast food meal. So I came up with “What the heck can I make with [...]

Cheddar Corn Spoon Bread

I don’t plan on doing a lot of posting this week, as one of my best friends is coming to visit tomorrow. Yay! But, I did promise to share my recipe for cheddar corn spoon bread, and I figured I’d better do it before Thanksgiving. The recipe is adapted from Everyday Food – I add the jalapenos [...]

Sewing + Cooking

Today I decided to get down to business. I cleaned. I finished my quilt top. I put the laundry away. I saw my bag of “off to goodwill” clothes and rummaged through it. I have 4 or 5 tops– the same exact top, but different colors and stripes– that are just too short from all [...]

Moose Cake

This weekend we cooked dinner with some friends, so I made a pumpkin chocolate cake to bring along. My original plan was to decorate the cake to look like a pumpkin face, but I mixed the orange frosting first and forgot about yellow. Plus, it looked extra peachy. So I made the impromptu decision to [...]
