You can’t have a party without Party Rings.

This afternoon I had a little baking session. This little baking and decorating session was inspired by a quick little cross stitch project I completed this week. This was from the June 2013 issue of CrossStitcher Magazine, bookmarked (literally) for (2) years and not yet tackled! On our recent trip home for a wedding we […]

Book Review: Cookie Love by Mindy Segal

I must have at least 50 (ok ok…. maybe more like 100) baking books on my bookshelves, but somehow I always feel like I need more. For my latest selection from Blogging for Books I decided to go for this one: I do love a cookie. Or as I would call them, a “biscuit”, because […]

Book Review: Mastering Pasta by Marc Vetri

I chose this book because having read the excerpt […]

Possibly my finest achievement yet to date, as I really hated it, and forcing myself to learn it all after 15 years have passed since the last time I did Physics? PAINFUL. But one more hurdle overcome in my quest to […]

Waffled Leftovers. With added Cheese.

Well hello! For Christmas this year, this lucky little lady got a shiny new waffle iron. Yup. I had been eyeballing up waffle irons for months after having been indulging in ogling some food porn of various waffled items, mainly inspired by the blog at willitwaffle.com. This morning Mr M made me sweet waffles for breakfast […]
