Nature’s Pride + FoodBuzz Entry: Triple Chocolate Orange Bread Pudding

October 1, 2010

Last November, I spent a whole weekend steeped in jealousy as I read about all the fun that was going on at the first FoodBuzz Blogger Festival.  I regretted not going and decided I would try my best to go this year. I’m still going to try my best and I’m trying to cover all […]

3 for 3

July 12, 2010

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I had one of those awesomely lazy ones — lots of TV watching, some reading, and yes, some cooking. Something got into me Sunday for sure, because I ended up cooking something for every meal.   That’s huge for me, considering I’ve been in a cooking funk for a […]

Weekend highlights

January 24, 2010

Bidding adieu to 2009

December 29, 2009

I don’t know about you, but I am READY for 2010 start. 2009 hasn’t been the easiest year for me — not so good job news for both of us and family health scares are some of the biggies.  But enough harping on bad stuff.  Plenty of good stuff happened on this blog, so that’s […]

Mini Nutella Swirls

June 28, 2009

What’s the best way to win over a group of people you’ve never met before? I think I discovered it yesterday when I experimented and made these. A former coworker of mine has been trying to get me to come to Bunco night for the longest time, but I always seemed to have something going […]

Recipe Review: French Yogurt Cake

June 24, 2009

This cake is so French — simple yet elegant. There, I said it. I’d heard of French yogurt cake before and found a recipe for it in Dorie Greenspan’s book Baking: From My Home to Yours that I had intended to try, but I ended up finding an even easier version on Recipezaar. Why I […]

Something sweet, something savory, something sweet

June 24, 2009

That pretty much sums up the rest of my eats for today! I had some errands to run this afternoon and was hungry when I got back. Cereal sounded quick and good. I had 3/4 cup Cinnamon Toast Crunch, 1/2 cup Fiber One (to try to pretend to be healthy), and 1/2 cup fat-free vanilla […]
