It’s Getting Nutty In Here!

Written on January 21, 2008 at 8:06 pm, by

I must admit it took me quite awhile to begin writing this post because I kept having fun with the title. It’s amazing how many witty (or not-so-witty depending on how you see it) pun-filled titles one can create using the word “nuts”. And enough said about that. Okay, so here we are with a  Continue Reading »

Lazy Days

Written on December 31, 2007 at 10:49 am, by

With all the tidying up that’s been going on lately, I decided it was time for a bit of a break. Cold winter days make for the best lazy days and in between bouts of cleaning, I’ve been luxuriating in afternoon naps. I’ve also made time for a bit of baking. These days, when I  Continue Reading »

I Hope Santa Likes Butter and Cinnamon!

I hope Santa likes butter and cinnamon. Because that’s what he’s getting this Christmas Eve. Not wanting to miss an edition of Magazine Mondays, I decided to prepare these Cinnamon Spritz Cookies for Mr. Claus. The recipe comes from the December 2007 issue of Martha Stewart Living. Now I have a tendency to be a  Continue Reading »

While I will very likely be making this showstopper as the grande finale of holiday desserts, it certainly doesn’t hurt to give other desserts the opportunity to show their sweet stuff. I like to call this the Cream Puff version of holiday dress rehearsals. For this edition of Magazine Mondays, I decided to try a  Continue Reading »

You Devil You!

After a three-week hiatus, Magazine Mondays returns! I’m happy to put another magazine that has been languishing in what I now affectionately call, “the basket where magazines go to die,” to rest. When it comes to recipes, I am nothing if not melodramatic. This time around it’s the December 2006 issue of Food & Wine  Continue Reading »

Eat It and Weep!

For this third edition of Magazine Mondays, I bring you what is quite possibly one of the most sinfully delicious things I have ever made. Why I waited so long to try this recipe from the October 2004 issue of Food & Wine magazine is beyond me. Beyond me. Cream cheese. Caramel. And a hint  Continue Reading »

Magazine Mondays: Food & Wine, November 2006

Written on October 21, 2007 at 9:00 pm, by

For the second edition of Magazine Mondays (oooh – this is so exciting!) I decided to finally put the November 2006 issue of Food & Wine magazine out of its misery. This particular issue has been languishing in my magazine basket for almost a year thanks to two recipes that I’ve wanted to try, but  Continue Reading »

Introducing … Magazine Mondays!

Written on October 15, 2007 at 7:00 pm, by

Before you start fretting that this is yet another food blog event, not to worry. Don’t get me wrong, I love food blog events but sometimes I have difficulty keeping track! Magazine Mondays is more of a self-help tactic than anything else. A few months ago, I wrote about taking a huge step in letting  Continue Reading »
