Double Caramel Brownies 1

Well I’ve finished moving. Almost anyway… My apartment is cluttered with half-empty boxes, the fridge and pantry are mostly empty and I have to take baths because I haven’t even hung up a shower curtain yet. So while I’m buried under my mountain of crap I should have considered donating to Goodwill quite some time […]

After weeks of waiting and worrying, I’ve finally had my follow-up appointment after my skin cancer biopsy.  The pathology report form the biopsy showed that all the cancerous cells were removed and after a humiliating strip-search the doctor found no other areas of concern.  I’ll just need to get checked once a year to make sure it doesn’t recur.

Just Like DoubleTree Cookies

Just Like DoubleTree Cookies

Have you ever stayed at a DoubleTree Hotel? They have these cookies that are like the cookie equivalent of crack. I kid you not. See… Since I’m totally the kind of girl who would pick a hotel based on the cookies they serve, it’s a real bummer I can’t afford to stay at the DoubleTree […]

Austrian Raspberry Shortbread

So the first two days at my new job left me wanting to bang my head on the desk. The “training” was so painful I would have rather they just put me to work scrubbing dishes or hell even cleaning toilets! Exibit A: A plate of eggs gets one slice of orange to garnish, but […]

Roast Chicken with Tomatoes and Olives with Ann

Roast Chicken with Tomatoes and Olives

My life seems to have turned itself upside down so many times lately I’m no longer sure I know which way is up. I’m starting back to work today for the first time after 14 years as a stay-at-home mom, I’m moving in just 3 weeks, and I just found out I have skin cancer. […]

Biscoff Cupcakes with Biscoff Buttercream

I have good news and I have bad news. Which one do you want first? Ok, well since you can’t answer, I’ll start with the good news. I got the job I interviewed for the other day! Yeah! The bad news is that is just isn’t my dream job. Not even close to my dream […]
