It’s been an interesting week at home to say the least, with two kids suffering from stomach flu (three if you count the furry and whiskered middle child who had a couple of non-projectile episodes) and two adults fighting off something, including one who’s in varying degrees of undiagnosed pain at any one point (i.e. […]
I’m going to try this or this blog will never be updated ever again: tapping away on the iPad (mini, which is perfect for typing with my small hands) at 2am in the morning with what might turn out to be… a post! I already finished drafting the recipe on Evernote earlier, as a gift […]
It’s a cake, that’s a pie, that’s a crisp– light, moist cake underneath a generous layer of sweet apple chunks and cranberries, sprinkled with the crunchy and buttery cornmeal streusel.
Whew…last minute! I had my Daring Bakers challenge in my to-do list last weekend but there was a slight change in plans. What can you do, eh? So last night, after making a dinner of tuna beet salad with homemade mayo (because I ran out!) and already invested on a lot of elbow grease for […]
Thess’s Nana’s Banana Bread is sure to be a next hit on your next friends or family get-together or even just to yourself.

Yumm. Okay, okay… we’re back! Missed us? :-) We apologize for the unannounced sabbatical. Life just got in the way and whenever we think of updating, boy we just wish the brain could just blog for us on its own. We’re back in business, so to speak, except that I can’t really speak physically because […]
Let me tell you now that these are by far THE BEST CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES I’ve ever made and tasted, even better than the full-fat ones. And I really wish I have myself to credit for the recipe, but alas, no. It’s from Cook’s Illustrated Light Recipes. This is the 2nd recipe of the two […]
I’ve always daydreamed of making pretzels. Then as soon as I visualize the work involved, I just go on with my day. I don’t know what I’ve been afraid of now that I’ve made my first batch. It was so fun to make, too. Plus they’re cute. [Dan laughs at me when I describe any […]
Last March, in the midst of my Cinnamon Roll baking frenzy, I picked up a copy of Cook’s Illustrated Light Recipes when I saw the recipe for Guilt-Free Cinnamon Rolls [which I haven’t tried, of course]. What I ended up making first from the magazine were the Healthier Oatmeal Cookies, and let me tell you […]
