Happy New Year!

Published by under Food,Sewing

Happy New Year! It’s taken me a while to get back to blogging since the holidays due to travel and other activities. I’ve been busy making but sometimes the path from camera to blog is slow. And now when I finally have time, the Lightroom->Flickr plugin is down 🙁 so my other posts will have to […]

So much has happened!

Published by under Food

I did not miss macaron day

Published by under Food,Quilting

Although it may seem that I did, I didn’t miss Macaron Day — or Jour Du Macaron as the French call it — on March 20. I made vanilla (see above) and raspberry macarons, trying out some new flavor options with the filling. My husband was sorely disappointed that there was nothing chocolate, but the […]

Food Friday: Chicken Tikka Masala Cook-Off

Published by under Food

So there’s a bit of a back story to this one. My husband loooooves chicken tikka masala. But not just any chicken tikka masala. Specifically he liked the chicken tikka masala (CTM) from a local restaurant (Godavari formerly known as Sue’s). We were supposed to go there for his birthday last year but they had […]

Food Friday: Black and White Cookies

Published by under Food,Recipes

My friend Coco loves Black and White Cookies (aka the interracial cookie). Recently (okay, it was like months ago, but that’s my how my timeline is) she came back from New York raving about them and how she can’t get them here. So I told her I would make her some. I’m going to give […]
