waffled hash browns

May 13th, 2014

Ready for the best lunch of your life? All you need is a potato. And an egg. Oh – and your waffle iron…… Ever a fan of the multi-tasker in my wardrobe, I feel just the same when it comes to kitchen tools and equipment. I avoid, at all costs, “one-note” gadgets (okay, except for […]

favor-"ette": scones, revisited (and news!)

January 14th, 2014

I’ve been thinking about scones lately. How much I love them. And about how long it’s been since I posted about them – like, so long ago that my pictures looked like these (and thanks, as always, for sticking with me anyway…). So I thought it was time for another post. Except this time I […]

favor-"ette": new year's morning. done.

December 31st, 2013

As you can probably guess by now, I’m a fan of breakfast-y type foods. Scones, coffee cakes, and of course doughnuts. Last year I posted this do-ahead baked french toast, which I served up on New Year’s Day. Yum. THIS year I’m whipping up these: I know, right? As big a sweet tooth as I […]

banana bread and strawberry butter

October 29th, 2013

And now it’s not there. And there definitely feels like something’s….missing. And please, please don’t tell me to just grab a piece […]

dairy free: carrot bread

January 20th, 2013

Way back when, I found myself with some very pretty carrots from the farmer’s market that I was not planning on using anytime soon.  So in my ongoing campaign to get Noah to eat I decided to look for a carrot bread recipe. This was not so easy – carrot cake, no problem. But I […]

August 28th, 2012

Hi all! I hope you enjoyed my guest posts last week – I missed you! I have so many exciting things planned for my little blog over the next few months, but for now it’s all about transitions. The last few summers have felt like a revolving door at my house. Chelsea comes home in […]
