I gave some serious thought as to whether or not I was really up to baking these cookies this week. Sable cookies are not my favorite type (too dry, not gooey enough) and I’m still having a difficult time finding a new sense of equilibrium to get me through the next several months (read last …
*Updated 1/31/09* Somehow I’ve fallen into a temporal anomoly and tomorrow just didn’t arrive until today.  That sounds somewhat nonsensical, I know, but when you get right down to it, does tomorrow ever really arrive? Anyway, thank you all for your patience with my unexpectedly extended delay.  It might make things easier all around if …
Here we are, another Tuesday and, I’m sorry to say, another rather short post from me. This week Mary Ann of Meet Me in the Kitchen chose Berry Surprise Cake on pages 273-275. I can’t say I was terribly excited to make this one – I’m not much into berries and I left it until …
I’m feeling a little under the weather this week so I’m going to keep this short.  This week’s TWD challenge was selected by Rebecca of Ezra Pound Cake; she chose Savory Corn and Pepper Muffins on page 6 of Dorie’s Baking:From My Home to Yours. Luckily this was a quick and easy recipe to throw …
Today is the very first TWD of 2009 – how exciting! Well, to be honest, I wasn’t terribly excited.  “Prince Charming” and I arrived home in the wee hours of Saturday morning and there wasn’t much in the way of fresh food in our house after our nearly 2 week absence and I was feeling …
Welcome to the final TWD installment of 2008.  I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season; I know I am!  I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to participate this week since I am still out of town visiting family, but my mother graciously permitted me to take over her kitchen …
Merry Christmas (or Happy Holidays if you prefer to be politically correct)! This Tuesday we are making (or at least presenting) Real Butterscotch Pudding found on page 386 of Dorie’s Baking: From My Home To Yours and our holiday week hostess is Donna of Spatulas, Corkscrews & Suitcases. This week’s TWD post is going to …
Here we are on Tuesday again; this time of year time compresses and I can’t explain where each week went.  This week’s TWD assignment is Buttery Jam Cookies selected by Heather of Randomosity and the Girl.  This is another one of those recipes that I wouldn’t have dreamed of picking myself – no chocolate and …
Welcome to the latest installment of TWD!  I’m doing my very best to keep on track with my TWD commitment despite the continuing holiday insanity.  This week Ulrike of Küchenlatein‘s selection is Grandma’s All Occassion Sugar Cookies.  At first glance I wasn’t too terribly excited about this recipe; just your basic sugar cookie.  But, the …
Welcome back!  It seems like I just did this, oh wait, I did – maybe relaxing the rules isn’t always such a good thing, I feel like I’ve lost time somewhere.  I’ll let you know if I find that time anywhere, but in the mean time let’s talk about the TWD pick-of-the-week chosen by Dennis …
