I love peaches. Just the word "peaches" makes me think of summer orchards in the country, full of plump, sweet peaches, ready to be picked and eaten. I consider myself one lucky girl when it comes to peaches, since I live in Georgia and near South ...more
When I was little girl, my mum baked a lovely cake the day that we put up the Christmas tree at home. She continued this tradition from my childhood to this day.

day 39 I had errands and holiday shopping to do downtown so I listened to Serial while popping in and out of stores. I walked by the art gallery and saw the latest exhibit in the window: dried flowers tied up in bundles and hanging by strings, flower bundles set out on a tall butcher block, along with petals scattered on the floor. I stopped to get a closer look just as a twenty-something couple walked by ....more

As many of you know, I have had the privilege to play around with a new SousVide Supreme water bath over the last couple of months! I have worked in many fine-dining restaurants that use sous-vide to cook proteins for … Continue reading → ...more
Day 12: Flourless Monster Cookies. I just finished up making all of my dough for next week’s holiday baking. This is the first year that I’ve done it in my apartment (usually, I prepare and bake everything at my parent’s house, where they have ample counter space and a double oven) ....more
