I had so many kind emails and comments and tweets yesterday;  your support of my upcoming book is overwhelming.

giant cinnamon bun with brown butter icing

Monday, October 5, 2015

I apologize for the space in between posts. I’m sort of stumbling through life right now – my manuscript is due shortly, and I’ve been working on a few side projects as well that have kept me very busy. The second my littles get on the school bus until the moment they get home, I am baking, writing, testing, re-testing, panicking, reassuring myself, still panicking, photographing, typing, and…

iced lemon almond bread

Monday, June 22, 2015

Happy Monday, dear readers. I woke up this morning to thunder, lightning, and two littles climbing in my bed, sort of scared but mostly using the storm as an excuse to play games on my ipad. Yesterday was 85 and sunny – our first perfect summer day, filled with a family BBQ, swimming, and so much laughing I’m still smiling. Autumn may be my favorite season, but summer…

lemon white chocolate scones

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

I still have a bags of lemons and blood oranges in my refrigerator. Maybe it’s the Minnesota in me, but I never quite believe spring is really here until April is over and done. After years filled with brief moments of blissful warm followed by weeks of dreary cold rain mixed with snow, I don’t trust this ‘second’ month of spring. So the citrus stays a little bit…

“I do think you have to change with the times in a way that renews your core essence, not abandons it. To change for the sake of change—without an anchor—that is mere faddishness. It will only lead you further astray. -Richard C. Morais, The Hundred-Foot Journey A few days ago DreamWorks approached me to create a post inspired by their new movie The Hundred-Foot Journey. I eagerly accepted…

rhubarb blueberry apple pie

Monday, June 9, 2014

Last week I received my copy of The Homemade Flour Cookbook by Erin Alderson in the mail. I’ve been a fan of Erin’s site Naturally Ella for a long time, and last September had the pleasure of meeting her (and photographing her wedding). Erin is a hardworking, go-getting woman, and one of the most generous souls here in blogland. I’ve been terribly excited about her book. The premise…

‘Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby- awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.’ – Lemony Snicket If you follow along my Instagram account, you know that I’ve been baking a lot lately. I’ve been enjoying all the likes and new followers my cakes and muffins and cookies have been getting, but after spending a few days in reflection, I’ve…

frangelico + coffee no-churn ice cream (and ice cream sandwiches)

Thursday, May 30, 2013

A while back I made a delicious concoction involving Frangelico and coffee. Soon after I was contacted by the nice folks at Frangelico to create a recipe, which I said yes to immediately, because I love baking with their liqueur. Prior to my frozen drink, I had actually only used Frangelico in baking and cooking, and worked at a coffeehouse that made a delicious Bundt cake involving the…
