SOS Kitchen Challenge for April: Asparagus Recipe Roundup!

This past month, Kim and I chose Asparagus as our SOS Kitchen Challenge key ingredient, and set out a true “kitchen challenge”: could anyone actually come up with a (tasty) sweet asparagus-based recipe? Well, I’m thrilled to report that several of you rose to the challenge quite admirably!

The asparagus recipes […]

We received a dozen fantastic, creative recipes to try that all highlight the super-healthy leafy green. And yes, a few desserts are included as well!


Getting Those Five to Ten a Day: Green Monster Muffins

[Totally unrelated note: ever wonder how people find your blog? Well, ever since I wrote my post about our holiday in Florida, the number one search term that leads people to my blog is. . . “Alligators.” Yes, indeedy: folks looking for reptilian, steel trap-jawed people-eaters are sent to. . .

Almost-as-Awesome-as-George-Clooney Muffins

I know; nothing is as awesome as George Clooney. (Well, at least according to George Clooney). But this is still one heck of a stud muffin, nonetheless! (*groan*).

Vanilla Versus Vanilla

[That’s our little Vanilla, in the middle]

So, I heard somewhere that it’s hockey season now. Oh, don’t look so surprised: despite having been raised in Montreal (a hockey town if ever there was one), I am indifferent to the sticks-and-pucks revelry. Personally, I’d rather read about the latest face-off […]


Lucky Comestible II (2): Almond-Quinoa Muffins

[I thought it would be fun to run a little series over here at DDD: I’ll profile one one of my favorite foods, or a food that I’ve recently discovered and enjoyed, over several days. For this second entry, I’m focusing on Quinoa. The series is presented on an occasional (and entirely arbitrary) basis, before […]

Sweet Ending

Today was an odd day, as I had to return to the old place to meet the cleaners for their final go-through. Standing around as they swept, wiped, polished and mopped made me feel nostalgic for the past, yet kind of weird at the same time, being in the near-empty (except for […]


Back to Baking: Orange-Oatmeal Muffins

After a rollicking time last evening (it was my Human Honey’s birthday, so we splurged ridiculously at one of our very favorite restaurants), I woke up, late, this morning and decided that it was time to return to the pleasures of baking. After all, I haven’t baked anything in seven whole days! […]
