Sugar Plums

Sugar Plums

‘Tis the season.   I admit that I’ve been feeling frazzled lately. I’m not entirely sure why, but since coming home from Disney last Tuesday night I’ve just been running from one end to the other and am finally looking ahead with a bit more […]

Pumpkin Galette

Pumpkin Galette

We made it to Friday and with that comes the end of our Thanksgiving ala France. To remind, we’ve made: Homemade Green Bean Casserole Sourdough Leek Dressing Mustard Thyme Roasted Turkey Breast and might I suggest and oldie but goodie to tie it all together, […]

Drunken Irish Hot Chocolate

Drunken Irish Hot Chocolate

It’s that time of the year. We need the hot chocolate. And, just in case, to make sure we stay nice and toasty warm from the inside out, we need some booze in it. While it means the loss of my glorious post-work outdoor tennis […]

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

News flash!  It’s fall, and dammit we can only hold ourselves back from pumpkin and stews and boots and cozy sweaters for so long. I wore a sweater and boots last Friday and, yes, I was so hot that I wanted to die, but I […]

Toasted Coconut Ice Cream

Toasted Coconut Ice Cream

Yes, another ice cream recipe. No, I’m not sorry. The point of this blog is to show you what I eat, and I’m honestly telling you that I do, in fact, eat this much ice cream (actually, I lie. The point of this blog was […]

Palmiers

(A lot of) years ago when I was in law school, a group of classmates and I hit up all the EU hotspots on a ten-day trip right before Christmas. As Lettuce and I, roommates for the trip, entered our hotel room, we were greeted […]

Brown Sugar Pound Cake

Brown Sugar Pound Cake

One of my favorite things to do when I go home is to page through Mom’s old, decrepit recipe box.  I don’t do it more than maybe once a year, but sometime I’ll go home and she’ll need something from it and I’ll find myself looking […]

Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo Bars

Canada, this one’s for you. Tomorrow, ICYDK, is Canada Day! And, being half Canadian myself, I like to commemorate the day with a little themed treat (see this Maple Walnut Dip and this Bacon Infused Caramel Coffee Sauce). This year, Nanaimo bars, which I always […]

Island Spice Mango Rice Pudding

Island Spice Mango Rice Pudding

I’ve got breakfast on my mind. Not really because I’m bored with mine; I’ve been religiously eating granola + berries + Rice Krispies (seriously) for the past…3 months? And I show no sign of slowing down that crazy train anytime soon. BUT, I have had […]
