health(ier) spaghetti carbonara

health(ier) spaghetti carbonara

Okay, so the only time I’ve ever had pasta carbonara is at my desk in the form of a lean cuisine. I think it’s because I always quickly wipe the drool off any menu that describes a dish as “creamy” and use all the will in my power pocket to get something that I supposedly … Continue reading

Honey Wheat Bread Part 2

I’ve been a bad blogger. Bad blogger! Bad! Sorry for the delays. I’ve been busy, what can I say? But not too busy to totally forget that I wanted to make honey wheat bread again. I admit, this one came out more crumbly (and not in a good way) than the first. But it tasted … Continue reading

Roasted Beet and Potato Salad

Lately I seem to have some time on my hands. My new job, while it pays well, is boring to the point of tears. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on who you are) I spend a good amount of time trying to figure out what to make for dinner, and that time has been well spent … Continue reading

cedar plank it!

I had been doing some reading and stumbled upon a list of “7 of the healthiest foods you should eat but aren’t.” Among the items on the list were sardines, for their “heart-healthy, mood-boosting omega-3s” and I was surprised (although it makes sense) that because of their low man on the whole circle-of-life-totem-pole-thing-status, they don’t … Continue reading

learn how to braid…bread, kinda.

I’ve recently become a fan of pinterest, a horribly, disgustingly, ridiculously addicting website. Just check it out and you’ll hate me instantly. You’re welcome. Aaand I managed to find yet another place to find inspiration. This time (and not surprisingly) in the form of food. So then I made this… …and just like it looks, … Continue reading

ooops sorry & perfect cookies.

I’ve been gone so long, that wordpress logged me out : ) Sorry I’ve been gone, kids. The new job has taken a bit of a toll, and even though I get every other Friday off, I’m exhausted. Well I’m still working at the wine bar on Saturday nights, just to help save more for … Continue reading

I made pizza and it was amazing.

I made pizza and it was amazing.

So as usual, I got a wild hair up my butt and decided to make something from scratch for dinner. This time, the new jar of tomato sauce I’d been wanting to try, the fresh onion, basil and mushrooms from the farmers market, and my recent adventures in bread land all came together and made … Continue reading

Honey…Wheat Bread. Or, Honey Wheat Bread.

After being (pretty much) successful at brioche bread, I decided I’d try my hand at wheat bread. But I like the honey wheat bread from the store. So then I decided to try making honey wheat bread. And awaaayyy I went : ) Let’s begin… Ingredients 1 (.25 ounce) package rapid rise yeast 1 teaspoon … Continue reading

Ignore This Post.

I have several draft posts set aside for myself, one of which I added just last night. Several are from this time last year, when I started  my blog. They have to do with my family and my childhood, and were largely my efforts to piece together what I know from the snippets, memoirs, white … Continue reading
