Almond Thumbprint Cookies

My baking mojo has been lacking lately. I think this is part because I have been: a)busy; b) trying not to eat as much; and c) disappointed with the results because of my crappy crappy oven. #firstworldproblems Anyway, yesterday I felt the urge to bake, and also wanted to use up some of the random […]

Baking for guests: Gluten-Free Banana (and Chocolate Chip) Cake.

This weekend I had the last of our visitors for a while, two of our awesome friends from Bristol, one of whom I used to work with, and who we had a reciprocal cat-sitting arrangement with. I think they were just as excited (if not more so) to see our cats as they were to […]

Cherries and Cherry and Almond Pie

Each time we drive to Tahoe, we go past all these fruit stands by the side of the road. The benefits of living in Northern California I guess! GIVE ME TASTY FRUIT! Anyhow, this time around on the way back we actually stopped off and bought some stuff from the Dixon Fruit Market. Oh. My. […]

Chickpea and Spinach Pie

This is my […]

Coconut, Ginger, and Banana Pancakes.

This year is slightly different, as we don’t have oodles of people to […]

Banana, Chocolate and Ginger Softies

After seeing I think the 20th place, we have finally come to a decision on places to live. Hurrah! No more endlessly looking for places, touring around places…… It gets kinda dull after a while. One of our things we were looking for was lots of storage, and a nice big kitchen for me to […]
