I love having a food blog. I’ve always adored experimenting with recipes, writing is in my blood, and I’ve been huge into photography since the beginning of time (though for me, food photography is much more of a challenge than landscapes, pets, or portraits). Oh, and I love creating spaces on the web – I’ve been drawn to the internet since its inception, shaping my career first around web design, then development, then focusing more on writing professionally for corporate websites, and then finally, this blog – such a perfect intersection of so much of what I love.More
Pure evil. These cookies are pure evil.
I made them, taste-tested them (naturally and thoroughly), photographed them, and packaged them up for my guy to take to work the next morning, lest I shovel them one-by-one into my mouth all day long.More
Let me just disclaim right off the bat that I really hate these photos. But I love the cookies – or, I should say, loved the cookies. They’re long gone, and only these crappy photos remain. And is “disclaim” even a word? Never mind that. Cookies.More
Yesterday was the perfect day.
I got out of the house early and took my little one to a “Baby and Me” story time session at the local library. At three months, she’s too young to get too much out of it, but when she looked around in awe, smile plastered on her face, I knew I’d made the right choice.More
Raisins are one of those super-divisive foods that can bring out the passionate opinions in even the most placid of folks. See also: olives, cilantro, avocados, mushrooms.
I actually like all of these foods. Especially raisins. Those silly raisin-haters don’t know what they’re missing. A bowl of oatmeal is incomplete without ‘em, for instance. Okay, I’ll admit I don’t really like them (or much of anything) in my carrot cake, but I find plenty more places for them than not. And Raisinets – chocolate-covered raisins? Yes, please. I would like to find them just about anywhere.
Like in these cookies, for instance.More
