I could tell you where I’ve been or what I’ve been doing. I could make a thousand excuses. But if we’re being honest, you don’t care to know and I don’t care to tell you. You came here to see cakes, cookies, and pies…AND SEE THEM YOU SHALL. So, here’s a year in my kitchen. [...]

When I was younger, Thanksgiving was a wonderful time where you didn’t do anything of note all week in school, save crafting Indian garb (we were taught “Indian”, not “Native American”…I’m really dating myself here) out of paper grocery bags, until finally you arrived at the big day only to find yourself  impatiently waiting through [...]

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 [...]

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).
