Back up for air

Aloha, friends. I’ve been swamped with non-blog-related projects lately, and I expect to have something for you very soon. I’ve been really hot to get sewing again, and I can’t wait to share projects and bounce some ideas off of you. If it’s any consolation, I really miss this place, and I think about it […]

I put a cupcake in Snuggie

Yup, that’s a cupcake in a Snuggie. Now you’ve seen it all. I did it, guys. I think I may have crafted the most ridiculous item, ever. Well, it’s at least the most ridiculous craft I’ve personally ever concocted. Most ridiculous item ever is a pretty tall order. Have you checked out Regretsy.com? Sheesh. (FYI: […]

Eats of Eden: Out of season

Apple-cranberry pie appears in a back copy of Cook’s Illustrated. The genesis of this entry has roots all the way back to Thanksgiving. It was a small-scale feast for just me and MVH, and it was delicious. MVH grilled a turkey breast (a first for him), and it was smoky and moist. I made mashed […]

Time out, time in

Slabs of delicious quick bread are a pretty good reason to get up in the morning. Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker” suite was my baking soundtrack recently. I made quick bread between pirouettes, MVH dropping by from time to time to join the dance. It was relaxing and silly, everything you could want a baking experience to be […]

Eats of Eden: Apples to oranges

Surprise! There’s a cupcake in my orange peel. I relish the contrary. Maybe it’s the Gemini in me. I strive to be unpredictable and to challenge and expand what I know. When the November IronCupcake:Earth Apple Challenge was announced, I put on my thinking helmet to come up with a way to turn baking with […]

East meets West meets Erin

The Biscevic Turkish House, built in 1635, overlooks the Neretva River in Mostar. The Franciscan Church’s spire, the tallest in Mostar, stands across the river. When I was on vacation in September, I visited Mostar, a city in Bosnia-Herzegovina. It has become one of my most memorable travel experiences. Light streams through the windows of […]

Eats of Eden: Smothered and covered

Apples are piled high with butter, brown sugar, and spices. In case you hadn’t noticed, I love food. And, honest to goodness, I am not a food snob. Yes, I appreciate a gourmet meal. My recent anniversary dinner at Restaurant Muramoto was a four-course culinary adventure; I had potatoes I can’t even explain. But I […]
