I apologize for my absence. Here is what I’ve been doing:

Hot Chocolate with dashes of Cinnamon and Chili Powder.

‘Nuff Said.

Oh Costco. I don’t know what to do with you. You take such good care of me. But just when I think we were meant to be, you rip my heart apart with your impulse purchases (or are they mine?). Sweet Costco. Last week I read a fascinating article about your pumpkin pies. You know [...]

I feel like crying as I write this. My oldest is turning 12 this Sunday. 12. Twelve. 1-2. If you know Ellie, you may know why I’m now officially crying. She’s a great girl. And now she’s going to be a great lady. The birthday cake below is what she has requested for her special [...]

It is that time of the year. Can you believe it? Time for costumes, cinnamon sticks, orange leaves, and oh so much more. I thought we’d ease in to the beauty of autumnal life with an oldie but goodie. I’m sure many of you already have a pumpkin cookie recipe. But who doesn’t love these [...]

I’ve been told that one of my greatest talents in life is my ability to invite myself to anything. It’s true. I have a knack. Cringe worthy, yes. Useful? Depends on the circumstance.

Well, I have invited myself into an actual family. Yes, a family. The Tueller sisters. If you don’t know a Tueller, you [...]

On September 18, 2011 By admin

I have to be honest with you about this recipe. And don’t be mad. After talking to several friends about our doings this summer, we all agreed on one thing: We gained weight. Ouch. But, I’m here to tell you why I’m a bit chunkier now than I was in June. It’s because of the [...]

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 [...]

Drink: Caramel Apple Cider

On October 22, 2009 By admin

It’s a shame how long I’ve gone without posting anything. Life has taken over. Last summer, as we drifted about enjoying our free time, I looked at my growing girls and suspected that Fall would be crazy nutty. And although I usually don’t write much about my family online, I must say that this Fall [...]

Dessert: A Keeper Cupcake

On September 3, 2009 By admin

Long story short–I was looking for a keeper cupcake recipe and I found it here. Print this one out, it’s a keeper. Just one note on the frosting–when I made it, it was not chocolatey enough for me. So, I dabbed the middle of each cupcake with pure melted [...]
