I made soda bread the other day. It’s such an easy, delicious recipe, I don’t know why I don’t make it more often. I mean, I called this recipe ‘easy’, but the fact is, that’s what Irish soda bread is…easy. That’s the wonderful thing about it! This time, I got creative and put the dough […]...

This year, I have the second best Christmas tree ever, thanks to my sister. The first best Christmas tree was because of her, too, though, so I don’t feel bad saying this one is second. We got home from England last night, late. The first thing to greet us when we opened the door was […]...

Happy Thanksgiving today to all of my American friends around the world! I don’t know about you guys, but we’re taking things pretty easy around here. No turkey this year – just some homemade chicken and dumplings. Well, the dumplings are going to be sweet potato dumplings, because I couldn’t find sweet potatoes for sale […]...

I’ve been up to my elbows in packing paper and cardboard boxes this week, which is excellent for me, but pretty boring for you, I’m sure. I haven’t posted since last Tuesday. I’m not even joking, I’ve been feeling like I lost an arm or something. It’s totally weird for me to go so long […]...

Last night, I dreamed about baking cupcakes. I actually dreamed about baking cupcakes. I mean, I knew I loved baking, and that I’ve been missing it, but even I’m surprised that I actually dreamed about it. I’m relieved, though, because I fully expected hideous, giant spiders to plague my dreams. Because they do after I […]...

I realize it has been over a week since I posted any new recipes, but you guys, my mom was visiting me last week! Before this latest visit, I hadn’t seen her in two years. That’s just stupid. So I was a little busy and distracted last week. It was fantastic. We ate a lot […]...

You know what are not nice? Geese. When I was probably 14 or so, I didn’t know they were so territorial. There was a flock of them…a gaggle? Anyway, a lot of them on the hillside by the pool at the church camp I attended. I was all, “Heh heh. Watch this.” I ran at […]...

I have writer’s block today. I’m pretty sure it’s just a simple case of these pretzels having been so dang tasty that they’ve driven all other thoughts from my brain. So why fight it? Here. Have some cinnamon roll pretzels. Lose your mind for a while. It’s kinda nice....
