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 …
I had every intention of posting this a little closer to Thanksgiving, I planned to post it on Friday, which then got postponed until Saturday and I’m not entirely sure where Sunday went.  I think we all know what they say about “good intentions” and “best laid plans” which is why I’m here on Monday …
Firstly, thank you to Laurie for relaxing the rules this week; allowing us to post Vibi’s (La casserole carrée) apropos selection after our Thanksgiving feasting.  How much more perfect could the recipe assignment for the week of Thanksgiving be than a pie that has Thanksgiving in its very name? This week we are making Thanksgiving …
Every year around this time I find myself going through the exact same thing.  I go to store after store looking for the Heath toffee baking pieces (the ones without the chocolate), only to be disappointed at every stop.  I used to be able to get them easily; they were in the baking aisle of …
