Flobots – White Flag Warrior I know we’re more than a week into it but seriously, freaking September?! I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the age we live in now where the world is at our fingertips, but when I was a kid a year felt like a year. On top of that, the month of December felt like a year too. I mean, should I be like retail stores and start with …

Pink – Here Comes The Weekend There are plenty of good things that come out of taking what feels like years to customize your blog the way you want it. One of those things is having a nice chunk of content to blog about when you get to posting again. I haven’t really made something substantial in weeks and yet I have a few weeks worth of stuff that I could write about. I have …

Brownie Points

Alright, before you get all googly eyed and start to develop a puddle of drool on your keyboard, let it be known that I do not like these brownies. When I walked into the kitchen to make them, I had a very different end product in my mind. It consisted of these brownies, topped with salt and a white chocolate butter cream frosting with all sorts of pizzazz on top of them. It was going to …

Sugar and Spice…

IMG_5729

Out of everything I make during the holidays, this has got to be my favorite. I’m a lover of spices and can appreciate the assault on the senses they can do. I think that’s a big reason why I love holiday baking. I get to abuse things like cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice, and no one gives me any lip about it. And you know I’m a cinnamon freak so this time of year …

If Milk Could Dream…

Still the first week of the month and I already feel like I’m slacking. I have quite a few holiday goodies to throw your way so I really should get on the ball here. I mean, here I am, a cookie fanatic missing out on the cookie making season. If this blog has done anything consistently well, it’s making me ashamed of myself.  What? I said cookie and you stopped caring about everything else I was saying? …

Pumpkin Spiced Mini Doughnut Muffin Hole Thingies

So it would seem as if every food blog you go to has these little balls of goodness. Even saw them on TV the other day being sold in a bakery somewhere. The popularity of them is both attracting and discouraging. I don’t really want to be like other blogs out there, but at the same time, man these things are addicting. So easy to make and easy to eat. I swear you’ll have like …

One Cookie To Rule The Fall

IMG_5119

I cannot begin to describe the shame I feel I have brought myself. My disappointment Is the size of Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Why? You know why. Don’t sit there and act like you haven’t been shaking your head at me for weeks. Look at me, here, with this food blog, and I have not posted one thing… not one thing about fall yet. It’s practically November and here I am talking to you about garlic bread …

A Naked Banana Lacks Appeal

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.                                ~Groucho Marx I don’t mind eating healthy. I enjoy fruits and veggies prepared in numerous ways. But I must say – when dealing with bananas, one of my favorite ways is pan fried in sugar and butter. It’s just the way nature intended. This was introduced to me when eating …

Strawberry Sorbet

Strawberries are the angels of the earth, innocent and sweet with green leafy wings reaching heavenward.                                         ~Terri Guillemets Guess what? Summer is creeping up quick! I’ve made it clear that I have a newfound love for spring, but summer and I have a long, weathered past. While I loved it growing up, living in Florida …
