    I have fallen in love with these hanging baskets from Terrain. The 12 Types of Photographs You’ll Find on Instagram. I’m guilty of posting all of them, see above. Man Repeller has put me on The Literaliztion Diet New York Times’ Cooking Techniques. I’m practicing how to hold a knife. Just read, Why Should Cancer Make […]

  • zucchini muffins

    I changed the ratios a bit but the recipe is pretty close to the original. The one thing that I never do when making breads or cookies is add nuts.  No not because of nut allergies but because I just don’t like them in my baked goods. Cranberries and chocolate chips? Yes, please! I added […]

    Yes, I’m still posting!  I know that I haven’t been making much of an effort lately but I’ve been focused on stepping away from the computer after work these past couple of months and focused on creating, traveling and spending time with friends.  I even kicked myself off of Facebook to encourage myself to spend […]

    All summer I have Fridays off and I kicked my first Friday off by sleeping in, making eggs in a basket and sipping coffee on my back porch. Do you have an altered work schedule for the summer months?  If so will you do anything differently with your time out of the office?   ‘The […]

  • pretzel bread

    Until Monday night I thought I was horrible at making anything with active yeast aka bread.  I used to kill the yeast because the water I was using was too hot until the Family Consumer Science teacher explained to me that your body temp is 98 degrees, so you want to barely feel any heat from […]
