“1″ may be the loneliest number, but “2″ (despite being an even number) is an odd number to cook for. Most cook book recipes render at least four servings. On the other end of the spectrum you have microwave, single serve dinners for “1″. When there are only “2″ of you, the choices consist of [...]

Money does not grow on trees. (I know, SAGE advice.) So, I’m of the “waste not, want not” mindset. It makes me ill to throw away food. In fact, we recently had to throw away some peaches that could not be eaten fast enough—that I have been plagued with guilt over. And I vowed to [...]

Welcome Home!

On July 9, 2011 By

The rooms are painted, the boxes are unpacked, and with the exception of our furniture that hasn’t arrived yet, we’re all settled into the new home! The room that got the most attention (naturally) is also currently the only room with seating, so thank god it’s a pleasant place to sit! It was of the [...]

Pipe and Pipe Again!

On June 28, 2011 By

As all of my tools, pans, and the like are in boxes for “move-a-geddon”, I’d like to share some cake fails. If moving has taught me anything, it’s that boxes do NOT pack themselves. (Why that is remains to be determined…) Similarly, cakes do NOT frost themselves. So how do you learn to properly frost [...]

I was tired. Tired of being laid up with my back (I popped a rib head out), tired of feeling helpless, and tired of feeling powerless (both literally and figuratively). I was frustrated that I couldn’t help physically, and simply giving a donation of what little I could afford didn’t feel like enough. I guess [...]

WOW! Can I just say, WOW! The response to the Neighborhood Bake Sale has been so amazing! I am blown away by how quickly the community has come together for some good eats for a great cause. Huntsville, I hope you’re hungry, I’ve gotten responses from about 20 home bakers bringing multiple items from cookies, [...]

I actually did some baking today that was largely successful! Before I get into details, I have two big “thank you’s” to share. 1.) THANK YOU to the army of bakers who are opening their hearts, pantries, and ovens to bake goods for the Neighborhood Bake Sale this weekend! YOU are going to make this [...]

**Calling All Bakers**

On May 4, 2011 By

  Good news: I finally spoke with a rep (Mary Alonso?..Alonzo?…Alonss.. Mary) who was FABULOUS and extremely helpful. It turns out that donating is MUCH easier than I thought. So, I can now confidently say that 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross. WHOOHOO! You might be thinking, “Why choose the Red [...]

  When the fabulously talented Monica first handed over the reigns to my new baking blog, I figured my first post would be related to Easter treats, or Mother’s Day cupcakes, or something fun but mostly insignificant. Then the tornado(s) hit my home state, Alabama, devastating parts of my community, Madison County, and totally destroying [...]
