This past weekend, Americans and (I suspect) many others got together and watched the Super Bowl. Some of us hosted parties in honor of the last football game of the season. Some of us got a little too ambitious with the food planning and ended up in tears on the kitchen floor. This, friends, is my story. The details: Continue reading →Pin It

The short story on why there is no Farmers’ Market Monday this week? Failed recipes. I tried new things, they were fine, but they weren’t good enough for you. And that’s important to me; I want to give you crazy good things, not “well, this isn’t bad” things. Besides, just this morning I made a pear dessert which will blow your mind. More on that later this week. Also, I was in the middle of writing this post, and the how-to’s are a doozy. My mind was on buttermints, not farmers’ markets.
I’m backed up on posts anyway; I don’t mind admitting that. I tease you with things on Facebook, only to not post them until a month later. That has to be some sort of blogging sin; there should be rules against this sort of irresponsible behavior. Looks like it’s time to play “post catch-up,” a fun little game in which i take all my backlogged things I’ve made for you and let them finally see the light of day. First, we do buttermints, because I know a certain someone named Carol Anne may lose it if I don’t tell her how to make these. Continue reading →Pin It
So, we had this little state fair birthday party yesterday. You know, the one I’ve been telling you about, for the (now two-year-old) Wee One. I’ve been stringing pennant garland and fashioning felt animals for three solid weeks now. And if you think I have a Farmers’ Market Monday post today, you’re wrong; because unless you want my recipe for buying pre-made broccoli slaw and adding matchsticked fresh carrots to it to make it look classy, I don’t have anything for you. What I do have is a little recap of how the day was spent, and some of the other food I made for the party.
Today is also my blog birthday, people. It’s been one year since I started working on this, and I’m happy to say it’s been great. To celebrate, I’ll be rolling out a few new sections on the blog over September, and I hope you like them. I’ll be back in a few days with more recipes, and we’ll be back to our normal fun around here. Right now, I have some felt animals to clean up.
Enjoy the party, and thank you for coming. Continue reading →
My contribution to the Skewer-verse. It’s fitting, right? Superbowl coming up, parties all over the place, people gearing up for loads of finger food, the whole bit. Everyone’s been asking what I’ll be making for that Blessed Last Sunday of American Football, and I’m sad to say, not a whole lot this year. If you saw my party spread any other year, it would be a sight to behold. You would think I was having fifty people over, when in actuality it would be more like ten. But I use it as an excuse to make every cute appetizer I found in magazines/books/Pinterest throughout the year. Like it’s the last ever day to legally make adorable, tiny food.
