Bittman's Banana Bread
I'm finished with grad school. I've graduated, I've got a decent handle on things at work, the house is clean, we're heading to a Philadelphia Union game tonight, and I have a bunch of overripe bananas on the table. Life. Is. Good. A dear friend gave us a l...

Cauldron Cakes
It has been a crazy, crazy couple of months. And not always the good kind. When I made the decision to focus on getting through my semester and spending time with family it meant putting the blog on the back burner.  But the semester is over and I have deci...

Onion Potato Soup
I just couldn't go one more day without blogging. It's been since October. OCTOBER. I have had my fair share of reasons. Reason #1 happened the week of Halloween. I had Paul take a picture to remind me to keep my priorities in check. Yep, that's me! Right i...

Chocolate Crinkles
If baking was a performance, these cookies would be where I drop the mic and walk off stage. People keep asking how my blog is going and it feels awful to say, "Well, it isn't." A new semester has started, a new program year has begun at work, and I can see...

Sweet Potato Oven Fries w/ Blue Cheese Fondue
This pile of naturally sweet, cheesy goodness is just one of the excellent memories from last week. I am very recently returned from an amazing week at the Montreat Youth Conference. I bet there are very few people who attended that will tell you that their...

Chipotle Black Bean Hummus
I don't think there will be any of this left when Paul gets home tonight... My mouth is on fire and yet I can't/won't stop. At least I will definitely get my 8 glasses of water today. We're housesitting again at a house we just love. We are enjoying "playin...
