Adventures in the world

Craft Project

Craft Project

I’m not a crafty person. I could reiterate, but it’s ok, you can take my word for it. Lately I’ve had the urge to make stuff. Not food stuff, though I’ve been doing plenty of that, too. It started with some alterations to a dress. […]

Summa

Summa

I can’t admit how much it saddens me that summer is almost over. Hold on, yes I can. And I’ve been telling everyone for the last week. So rather than focusing on how dark it’s getting in the mornings/evenings, and how much I hate being […]

Hump Day

Hump Day

It’s no secret that I read a lot of blogs. Like, a lot. Like, opening Google Reader after a vacation is pretty scary. I just like to learn! And I’m fascinated with other peoples’ lives. And people take extraordinary pictures. One of my favorite blogs […]

Spring Rolls and a Promise

Spring Rolls and a Promise

So yesterday was my birthday. I wish I could tell you that I made myself a cake.  Or cupcakes.  Or these! But I didn’t. Honestly?  I was feeling lazy. Like, oatmeal for dinner lazy. That’s ok, right? I did win at ping pong, and I’m […]

Not so much a recipe…

Not so much a recipe…

More of a “why have I not been doing this for years?” post. Remember back when I made caramel sauce? For some strange reason, I haven’t made it since then.  I know, right!? The other day, I decided to make caramel sauce.  I had no […]

Skillsets

Skillsets

Yep. Yep.  Mmmhmm. Yeah. I’ve made cakes before. Delicious, moist, fluffy cakes. Sometimes with frosting, sometimes glaze, sometimes with just a dusting of powdered sugar. But I’ve never made a layer cake.  And we all know that presentation isn’t my strong suit. I’ve always wanted […]

Catch Up

Catch Up

Hello! Oh my gosh, it’s been so long! You *look* fantastic! *I can’t really see you, but knowing you, I can assume. What have I been up to?  Oh geez, where do I start? Well, we’ve been moving.  And that’s seriously hectic. Have you ever […]

Exciting Stuff Indeed

Exciting Stuff Indeed

I really do mean to post with some kind of regularity, so I apologize for disappearing. I promise that soon I will post more often. It’s just that, things have been happening.  Exciting things.  Like, big, awesome, things. We’re moving! Before you freak out, we’re […]

Content

That’s not me. But that’s how I felt all weekend. You see, Farmer’s Market is back. And it was Brew Fest. I don’t drink beer (still. Shocking, I know), but I got to people watch, and dog watch, and kayak watch. I got to hear […]

The Un-Burrito

The Un-Burrito

We’re still not eating much chicken around here.  I’ve decided that’s a good/bad thing. Bad:  because sometimes I just want to throw something together, and I know about a million ways to prepare and flavor chicken. But some people in my house (i.e. Nick) have […]
