Fun with family

True to form, it’s taken me quite a while to post another life update. Since an estimated 50% of the readership of this blog is my mom (Hi, Mom!), and I just got back from a visit to Utah, it hardly seems necessary…but I have a lot of pictures to share before they get filed […]

Recipe: Fluffernutter toast

This is practically not a recipe, just a whim inspired by the delightfully-named, almost-official state sandwich of Massachusetts.

Recipe: Choco-mint balls

This uncreatively-titled recipe was something I came across when I was digging through my Mom’s old recipe box (the one full of weird 60’s recipes that she made as a teenager), working on compiling family recipes for my bookbinding project. I didn’t include it in the book because I’d never made them before, but was […]
