this is very midsummer madness

July 9, 2015

SO HOT! It is hot. The kind of hot that clings to you. The air hardly moved today, and when it did, it brought no sign of relief. Struggling to make headway, squeezed into the lower level guest bathroom with sometimes two plumbers and one of the GC’s guys. When the sky finally released some […]

mocha cupcakes with vanilla buttercream

“So, terrible thing about the apartment, I guess, huh Julia?” I looked past the very tall lady standing at the counter who was being ignored by all salespeople, “How’s that?” I asked, wondering just what gossip these guys had been spreading about me. “Well, if the stove doesn’t work, I guess you’ll just have to […]

cake or death?

A few years ago my entire family (cousins too) got on the T together (a rare occasion indeed) and after pushing our way through the crowded subway stations and across the heart of Boston, we lined up outside a theater downtown. We had tickets to see Eddie Izzard. He is quite possibly one of the […]

gooey butter cake

This theme-y cooking stuff is for the birds! I’ve lost two weeks in a row now at fantasy football, and I blame it entirely on my wanting to be all matchy-matchy with London and fish’n’chips, and that the Pats played St. Louis in London, so I made this gooey butter cake. I really shouldn’t be […]

Applesauce Coffee Cake

October 16, 2012

I saw this recipe on one of my favorite food blogs, and I knew I had to make it. It looked delicious. I was a bit confused as to how the crumb topping ended up being on the bottom. But as long as there was a crumbly sugary part, really who cares if it ends […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

September 11, 2012

This past Saturday I turned 28. It’s been a pretty good year, overall. Busy, at times crazy making, and exhausting, but all in all not too shabby. I woke up, made some coffee, watched the news. Waited for what seemed like an eternity for my Auntie to call me to sing happy birthday. She usually […]

Father’s Day Cake – an in depth look

June 25, 2012

I feel like I have described, ad nauseam, how much my father likes chocolate, cookies, desserts — things that involve sugar, or most combinations of the aforementioned with chocolate. He’s the guy who used to lick the cake so that his sisters wouldn’t want to eat it. Then when we were kids, he would threaten […]

Father’s Day Weekend pt 1- 1/2

June 17, 2012

In order to try to make tomorrow less hectic, and include more sleeping and laundry. I have tried to prep things in a way that I’ve never attempted before. I have a few things to do tomorrow, but I’m hoping the majority of them can be done while cleaning the house and doing laundry. This […]

Father’s Day weekend part 1

My dad loves chocolate. Loves it. L-O-V-E! I wonder, at times if we are truly blood relations, given my general dislike for the stuff- unless of course its covering the inner, peanut butter part of a Reese’s. But seriously, who can say no to a Reese’s?! Last night I decided we could start off the […]

Tiramisu : hold the eggs

I was listening to the radio on my way to work and they said they had a survey that said that 80+ % of mothers don’t like their mothers day gifts. Great way to start out the week, no matter what I get her, she won’t like it. In the spirit of life handing me […]
