Time to make the donut holes!

I recently purchased a Babycakes Multi Treat Maker as a reward to myself for doing really well at my day job. This little baby can make a dozen cake pops (or donut holes or Aebleskiver) OR eight mini cupcakes OR 7 mini donuts! Just swap out the plates and...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 4/14/19

A few things happened this week that made me think of where my life has been and where I hope my life is headed. I’m making positive changes to my relationship with food and my body. I had a follow-up appointment with my doctor on Wednesday, only to get...

Sunday Evening Tea Musings

I missed my Sunday Morning Coffee post. Today I went back to my old hometown with a couple of errands to run. I have finally accepted that while I bake fantastically tasty cakes, I really don’t have the time to keep up with cake decorating, and I have a...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 3/24/19 – Fails

Health issues – I had some. I’m better now. Winter sucks for me. Moving on. Recently had an experience that made me rethink my writing a blog, and a cookbook or three. More of a nudge toward doing it, with a strong dose of “You are not an impostor!”...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 10/21/18 – Squirrel Cage is Full

If you have never had to deal with Adult ADD, you may not understand this. It’s difficult some days to keep focused on one thought, project, or conversation from start to finish. Being inside my head sometimes feels as if I have a cage full of squirrels. Think Hammy...

Learn something new every day

I am a good cook. Some people will say I’m a great cook. I think I’m a good cook and a good baker, mostly because saying I’m anything better than that is bragging and I try very hard not to do that. It occurred to me today that I...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 9/16/18 – I’m no angel

Today I want to write about limits. I am also a bit Ranty McRantPants today. I would blame the menopause, but hey – that’s cheating! Maybe I am coming to the time of my life where I have less energy to spend on other people’s foolishness. Maybe I’m just...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings – 7/29/18

I am a morning person. This is a source of distress for my husband, who is a night owl and despises morning people with a passion equal to the heat from a million white-hot suns. He’s just not one of those people who’s brain immediately snaps to attention once...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings 7/22/18 – Mistakes were made

This is ridiculous. How can we be out of onions? We don’t use cumin seed for 10 years, all of a sudden we’re out of it? What the hell happened to the regular paprika? Where are the coriander seeds? It’s the last day of vacation. I decided that I...

Sunday Morning Coffee Musings, 7/15/18 – Vacation

Firstly, this is a Sunday Afternoon Coffee Musing, as I slept in for a change and wasn’t even awake until almost 10 a.m. This is unusual for me, the woman who gets up at 6 a.m. regardless of the day. I’m just hardwired that way. When I do sleep...
