Christmas Cookies

We had some really truly terrible rain this past weekend. It was like the opening to The Cat in the Hat in that Eric and I didn’t know what to do when we couldn’t go outside! The gray skies and horizontal rain were just beggin’ for some bakin’. Not bacon. And since we are now officially in the holiday season, I thought we should do some of those cute little spritz cookies everyone likes. The… (more)

Kiwi Ideas

The box that came last week was pretty fun. We got: 3 pears 2 apples 4 Kiwis Carrots Garlic Lettuce Kale Golden beets The kale turned into kale chips that same night which I enjoyed, but Eric did not. He said they were no different than eating a dried leaf off the ground. Thanks. The carrots and fruit have been snackers all week, although I’m saving the kiwis for some special idea. Perhaps something for… (more)

I just don’t like their peppery nature. But they’re a root vegetable and they… (more)

Dark Chocolate Lemon Brownies

So apparently I’m not very good at keeping up with this blog thing. The beets from the last box were roasted and eaten in salads with goat cheese and walnuts exactly as planned. Eric did not like the beets so I ended up eating all 4 of them myself. They were pretty tiny though. All other contents of the box became snack items. Delicious! I also baked some brownies that went to Apple last weekend…. (more)

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

For the last couple weeks I have been baking regularly again. I used to bake fabulous cakes all the freakin’ time! I loved it so much, it is a favorite hobby of mine. Unfortunately it isn’t healthy for any one person, or couple in our case, to eat those types of things multiple times a week. I stopped baking because I didn’t want to eat it, and I didn’t want to waste it. What a… (more)
