Cow Tale Cupcakes

Published by under Cooking

So, I really wanted to enter Cupcake Hero and this month’s ingredient is marshmallow. I love marshmallow which should be obvious. I sat and thought long and hard about something fun to make and came up with a few ideas but a lot of them just didn’t sit with me (or I had done them […]

Cooks Illustrated Chocolate Cupcakes

Published by under Cooking

Well, with all that wonderful ravioli, we had to have some dessert. And since we had all sorts of cool pastry tips and glitters from shopping at the Home Cake Decorating Supply Co, we had to make cupcakes. 🙂 I decided to make the Cooks Illustrated chocolate cake recipe from Bakers Illustrated with their buttercream […]

KitchenAid Ravioli Maker

Published by under Cooking

While I was in Seattle the other weekend visiting B&D, I managed to convince them that they needed the KitchenAid Ravioli Maker. They had some pasta attachment that goes with the meat grinder, but it’s not the same. I show them the videos of Peter Pasta and they were (okay, B was) sold in much […]

Chicken Pot Pie & Brownies

Published by under Cooking

For dinner last night, I made chicken pot pie. Quite delicious. Not really sure how healthy it is given the pastry crust but definitely some good comfort food. For dessert we had No Pudge brownies. They are delicious. Super easy to make and much healthier (or at least lower in calories) than normal brownies. We […]

Dying Silk

Published by under Crafts

This silk started out plain white and I dyed it using Dharma Trading Procion MX dye in teal blue. I learned a lot and kinda freaked out that I wasn’t safe enough although I have stopped freaking out and I think I was and I will just make doubly sure to clean the whole kitchen […]
