Punch Pops

30 punch pops 02

Neil and the boys got me a few fun things for Christmas: The book and ice pop molds were on my wish list, but still, they’ll never convince me that they weren’t selfishly-motivated with these purchases. It reminds me of the year I got Neil an answering machine because I wanted one. Or the year […]

Pumpkin (or Banana Maple) Muffins

296/365 October 22

I just put a batch of hooks in the oven to cure, and I figured I would take this opportunity to share with you something else I recently put in the oven that is not polymer clay, but actual honest-to-goodness edible food. This time of year, there is always a little bit of buzz in […]

17 cupcakes 02

Today is Neil’s birthday. After the summer he’s had, I wanted to do it up big for his birthday.

Spaghetti Dogs

01 dogs 4

I first saw this on Pinterest with no source given.  I found it repulsive in a can’t-avert-my-eyes kind of way, and so I google image searched my way to the original.  I showed it to the one person in this house (other than me) who likes both pasta and hot dogs, and he was all […]

Pine Nut Salad

365 day 123 - Pine Nut Salad for lunch

Libby saw this salad in my Flickr photostream last week and requested the recipe, and since it’s been entirely too long around here, recipe-wise, I am gladly typing it up and sharing it right now. I found this salad years ago in one of my old favorite books, Vineyard Seasons by Susan Branch (used copies […]
