Sourdough Bagels

Print Friendly and PDF



If you know me at all, you probably guessed that I am not the maker of these bagels. Firstly, because I am known to destroy anything that requires the least amount of patience and/or precision and secondly, because you know that Samuel is the master bread baker around here.

Nutella Stuffed Pumpkin Muffins

Print Friendly and PDF



I suppose it's to be expected, since this is the first recipe I made up and photographed since the chub was born, but I was having an awful time getting these muffins right. 

I could blame it on being sleep-deprived or just being rusty from my lack of baking over the past five weeks, but I think instead I'll blame it on the fact that the sun is already starting to set right now at THREE IN THE AFTERNOON. I think my brain must look something like the shriveled cactus sitting on my window sill that died of sunlight starvation.

Racine Pecan Kringle

Print Friendly and PDF



Happy Halloween! As usual, I kind of failed on the posting seasonal/holiday themed recipes thing. No spider web cupcakes or caramel apples here!

I don't know if it's defiance or laziness that makes me do these things, but contrary to what you may think, kringle actually has no relation to Kris Kringle or Christmas whatsoever so it's perfectly fine for me to post it on Halloween. Yes, it actually is!

The Best Basic Burritos

Print Friendly and PDF



Life with a baby is going well. He's still a perfect angel, hardly cries, sleeps like a charm, etc. Not to mention the fact that ever since he had his first bath, his hair is CURLY (most days).

As for me, not only have I gotten back to baking, but I already have gotten back into my pre-pregnancy pants (this triumph is not to be diminished by the fact that they may or may not have an elastic waistband).

The Baby!

He's finally here!!!!!!!

Actually he's been here for almost two weeks (which you probably already know if you follow on Facebook or Instagram). I've just been too busy cuddling the little squish to give you any details.

Well, here I am, still counting down the days until the due date (10 days!!!) and torturing myself with the thought every single day of "tonight could be the night!".

Flourless Oatmeal Apple Muffins

Print Friendly and PDF



Well, you catch me on a lazy day. Guess all that nesting business is a thing of the past. I just hope that doesn't mean this baby is getting too comfy in there, because I'm not too comfy out here.

Microwave Spinach Dip for One

Print Friendly and PDF




We're finally back in Berlin! Many doubted my sanity when I told them I was flying 8 months pregnant, so I'm happy to have proved you all wrong by not having the baby over the Atlantic. In fact all I really suffered from it was a little (okay, major) swelling in my feet.

As soon as I got back, even before my water balloon feet had gone back to regular size (seriously, it was like they were SLOSHING every time I stepped), I went into nesting mode.
