christmas cookery

December 22, 2012


I'm plowing ahead with menu-planning this year, and I've come up with too many things to make for 2 meals. I've been asked to contribute just one side dish and dessert, which is actually harder than just planning a whole meal because I want them to be THE BEST and there are so many great options to choose from:

thanksgiving 2012

November 22, 2012


Happy Thanksgiving! This year, I took a different approach to Thanksgiving. I didn’t host anything, I barely made plans at all and I decided that if I did cook, I wouldn’t be too ambitious about it. As you can see from year’s past, (2010, 2011) I tend to go overboard on planning and cooking. There […]

Adventures in Ice Cream Making

Not only did we endeavor to make six kinds of baked goods, but we also doubled each recipe – resulting in hundreds of cookies […]

thanksgiving menu-planning

November 22, 2011


This year, I’m hosting Thanksgiving by myself. Sure, my guests are responsible for bringing dishes to round out the menu, but to be completely honest, sometimes I don’t like eating other people’s food. That’s why Heather and I took on the entire spread last year, and probably why I started out making only 3 dishes […]

recipes of the week

November 10, 2011


There is an absurd amount of food in our refrigerator right now. On Monday we hosted the EPIP Seattle steering committee for a potluck in which we made Spicy Dr. Pepper Shredded Pork  Tacos  and a fresh spinach and feta salad. The guests heeded my plea to bring something other than just wine or a dessert […]
