On January 12, 2012 By admin


Winter is settling in and we may as well get used to it. My sister called me a few days ago enraged that I hadn’t posted this little beauty. It is my favorite pancake recipe from my dear friend Mindy H. She gave this to me years ago. Enjoy.

Breakfast: Canned Peaches

On November 4, 2011 By admin

Oh what’s that? What did you ask? What are we doing with our mountain of canned peaches? For one thing, we are putting them on french toast. We call it “Quick Peach Cobbler Delight.”

Don’t laugh. It’s totally working for us.

Today is a favorite Aunt’s birthday. In honor of E, I am posting a recipe she gave me long ago (like 20 years long ago). As with all recipes from E, these cinnamon rolls are unique, simple, scrumptious, and full of character. My girlfriends and I made them all through college. I’m still making them [...]

If you’ve ever had a baby and someone has brought you dinner, you never forget what they bring.

I remember some postpartum meals being the very best thing I ever placed in my mouth. This [...]

Baking: The Perfect Cinnamon Roll

On November 14, 2010 By TandO

Ahhhhh, winter weather. It is here. And unless you live in a little place I call MagicLand (aka Berkeley, CA), you will know what I am talking about. When I see storms brewing, frost forming on windows, snow flurrying, I want one thing and one thing only: cinnamon rolls. Okay, maybe I want two things [...]

Have you seen the movie Spanglish? There is one scene where Adam Sandler is making the most beautiful sandwich you have ever seen. Well, it turns out that Sandler apprenticed under Thomas Keller in preparation for his role as a chef in this movie. Watch the [...]

I believe in a lot of things. I believe in being nice. I believe in forgiveness. I believe in Hot Breakfasts. As my daughter G used to say, “for real life, I do.” However, mornings are tight at our house. The bathroom is in heavy demand, people are practicing instruments, almost all major appliances are [...]
