Not in love. I suppose I can feed it to the crows instead of throwing it away. It’s a terrible burden to figure out what to do with 15 lbs of freshly picked Golden Delicious apples. I made apple fruit leather, failed at making apple-peach-mango fruit leather, made a potful of applesauce and realized I… Continue reading Martha Stewart Applesauce Cake
Tiffanie pan fries a bug and decides to talk in third person. She feels queasy and decides to eat carrots and blueberries the rest of the day. Washing dishes was out of the question. All the pans were dirty (trust me, there are a lot of pans) and the only pan that was left was the… Continue reading Unmentionable.
Sweet + Sweet != Yumminess This is a repost as the current theme I’m using only allows for one picture per post :( Creativity struck. How about adding fresh oranges and nutella in a crepe?

From allrecipes.com Have I grown prissy or does the taste of breadcrumbs leave an odd taste in meatloaf or meatballs?… Continue reading The Meatball that Fell Off the Table

AHA! Yes – crepes can be frozen! (The third try works like a charm – see the noticeable improvement?) Being a newbie at making crepes, I was extremely lucky in finding and making a fantastic, french-bakery quality crepe. Flipping the crepes took a little work but after the third one, no problemo. Note: This recipe… Continue reading Crepes – and the Experimentation Commences
