So, the boy’s nearly cooked (I figured a culinary term would work well). Only 2 months to go, so all guns are blazin’ right now between the nursey, breast pump, snot suckers, baby shower and college fund. I’ll tell you what it seems like —  it’s like he’s ready to get out o’ there with […]

I guess my good lady’s baking kick is rubbing off on me — or is it that I’m softening up to her cravings? Either way it seems she’s in a win-win situation, right? Now if I could only convince her that a cake is good enough for a push gift but that’s another story. I […]

Soda bread is one of those classic Irish bread recipes that’s handed down from generation to generation. It’s one of the first recipes I learned way back when. If you’ve been following me for a while you’re probably familiar with my brown soda bread recipe and video and even my sweeter version in the form […]

Hey guys, Let me just say beforehand that I’m passing on this little anecdote to you with the utmost respect for the person who said it but some shit you just can’t pass up telling others…respectfully of course.

First off, let me assure you that I am no baker, but this pregnancy thing has gotten me off my butt and into the kitchen to do just that–bake. And in my world of rationalization if I can’t drink alcohol then why not eat it especially for Paddy’s Day so I’m diggin’ this new leaf […]

When people ask me how to know what’s in season I always tell them the best way to know for sure is to go to your local farmers market and see what the farmers are selling. Eating seasonally for me means eating what’s in season in my region. Some of the Spring veggies are starting […]

As y’all may know I’m preggers and though my cravings have been mild and mostly healthy, I do find my chocolate cravings growing stronger along with the desire to bake, the latter of which I’ve never been that interested in.
