scones and other breakfast foods : on vacation

June 25, 2012


This was the view from the deck – 180 degrees of mountain tops, treetops, lots of clouds and green. My dad did a great job finding the house that we rented, in Glover, VT. There was already discussion about returning the next year to rent the house again for a family vacation by the time […]

Blueberry Pancakes, Chocolate Chip Pancakes

June 9, 2012


Finally the good weather is here! My goals for today were to buy a bathingsuit (online, if possible) get a cheap flour sifter, buy some things to help with cabinet storage – especially for herbs/spices. That cabinet is total mayhem. It’s damn near impossible to find anything when I need it – and I hardly […]

bacon cheeseburgers, cooked indoors

June 8, 2012


When I headed home from work today (early, with a headache behind my eyes so bad it turned my stomach – or my stomach, turned itself and this thing is bigger than it seems… I’m a licensed electrician, not a licensed physician…) it felt nice and hot out. We’ve had weather dipping down into the 50’s, […]

poached pear, arugula, fig, and prosciutto pizza

June 7, 2012


I decided that I wanted to make burgers tonight for dinner – then there were hours of rain, including but not limited to torrential downpours. I decided that I wouldn’t make myself, or anybody else stand out in the rain while they cooked, and I figured it would be too hot to grill indoors. I could probably […]

fettuccine alla carbonara

June 6, 2012


Today was fairly tame, as far as Wednesdays can go. Nothing anybody else did at work (which turned out to be not much) was helpful, but thankfully I was left completely alone, to listen to whatever music I wanted to, and I ended up getting more done than I thought I would. This is always a good […]

Blueberry Donut Muffins

June 2, 2012


Waking up early wasn’t something that came easy to me a few years ago. Now? It can’t be helped. I wake up “for work time” even when it’s definitely not a workday. This morning, 5:15. Awake. 5:45? Showered and waiting for the closest grocery store to open*. #grandmaproblems! I was determined to make donut muffins. […]

breakfast in a sandwich

April 29, 2012


Have you ever had the absolutely terrifyingly sinking feeling, when you wake up after a night of drinking to find that there aren’t enough coffee beans to even make a cup of coffee – providing your head doesn’t explode when the grinder starts up – I almost cried this morning. I retreated to my room […]

buttermilk french toast

April 28, 2012


Step #1: Wake up. Realize that it’s not as late as you though it was, that’s the channel being displayed on the cable box, not the time. Step two #2: Get downstairs and start the coffee, asap! Step #3: start to warm griddle, put on a few strips of bacon. Homefries take 1/3 of 5lb bag […]

easter sunday breakfast

April 12, 2012


I would like to kick myself right now. I just spent… Oh, a good 10 mins writing a post on the app and then due to the low level of coffee coursing through my veins currently… I hit “discard draft” instead of “publish” seriously… Reading- it shouldn’t be that hard to do right now. If […]
