Oatmeal Breakfast Bars

September 13, 2015

Where did August even go?! I feel like each year the time between my little sister’s birthday, at the very end of July, and my birthday (Labor Day weekend) keeps getting smaller. This year, it seemed to pass in the blink of an eye. Even with all the miserably humid and hotter-than-hot days, all the army crawling through […]

getting back to normal

July 20, 2015

The past year has been a chaotic mess. This past Saturday I was able to close the door on something that was on my back burner for years.     I got the highest level license available in my field of work, the level of anxiety I allotted as preparation for the exam went above and […]

this is very midsummer madness

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 […]

biscuits (in under 20 mins)

At my parents house, you’ll find a copy of the Joy Of Cooking. The pages are kinda stuck together, and have some old dollops of batter staining the paper, making it look prematurely aged when it gets to the 600s. This is where you will find all the scones, cakes and biscuit recipes. While my […]

spicy banana bread

I have to admit, I’m a bit of a banana hoarder. I don’t buy them as often as I probably should (my life could probably do with a bit more potassium in it…) but then I’m so picky about consistency when it comes to fruits and vegetables that once they look or feel a bit […]

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 […]

Run for the Roses Cupcakes

Is this my 200th post? I think it might be… Today I did a few things that I didn’t think I could manage in the kitchen. It’s been a while since I’ve tried to push myself to try to make things that I usually wouldn’t even think about, but today seemed like a good day […]

everyday as valentines day

Valentines day is not usually a big deal in our house, it’s usually acknowledged, but doesn’t usually find us as excited participants. This year was no different, really. I made it home early, well, before 7pm. I decided I would shower, relax, and order in some dinner as a gift of no dishes for myself. It was […]

I may be more interested in making chocolate things, now that I have an outlet for them. I’ll try a bite here and there, but I still don’t search out chocolate things (save my absolute favorite candy that is hidden inside this cupcake) but most of the things I bake get packed up and delivered to people […]

We were lucky, tucked up on a hill here in Boston, so close to the the water -link to picture is 1-1/2 blocks away from my aunt and grandmother’s house! Watching the tarps on the Tobin Bridge being battered by the whipping winds, streets already flooded and trees coming down around me as I headed home […]
