    My baby brother just turned a quarter century recently. Gee. Saying that out loud makes me feel old. My brother grew up watching the movie My Neighbour Totoro . It's pretty safe to say that he was obsessed with it, as only a small child can be. To this day, this fluffy, gentle, forest spirit...

    Bananas and I haven't always had the best relationship, but this gluten-free banana oatmeal muffin recipe will appeal to the toughest critics. Of all the fruit out there that I've tried, it's pretty safe to say that bananas are not my favourite. They're not even in my top 5. I think it's a...

    Well, it was another fun-filled, Fall weekend in our house. On Saturday, my daughter and I had a father/daughter day. We headed down to Milwaukee to see the "Discover the Dinosaurs" exhibit at the State Fairgrounds. My daughter loves dinosaurs so she had a blast seeing all her favorites come to...

    With all the hustle and bustle of holiday meal preparations, it's nice to make a dessert that doesn't require an oven. For Christmas dinner, I made a spice ice box cake to bring to my sister-in-law's. With two babes in the house, this low maintenance dessert was just the ticket. But don't...

    For my brother's birthday this year, I gifted him a birthday cake. I feel that, more and more, handmade gifts are more meaningful and heartfelt than anything that can be purchased. It's also a great idea for people giftees who don't need more "stuff." My brother requested something not too...

    I just had an awesome visit with my friends Sarah, Rosa, and Felicia today. Needless to say, I left Baby E at home with daddy. That's the only way I get a chance to actually engage in any degree of conversation these days. Sarah was kind enough to host, so I offered to bring some goodies to...

    I can't believe it's been four years! Four years since D and I have been married. It sounds long when I say it out loud, but it's just a blink of the eye really. It's amazing how much can happen in so short a time. A new home, a baby (and another on the way), masters degrees, vacations... And...

    For me, cake is an anytime, all-the-time food, especially when it's a chocolate salted caramel cake. With E having turned two this past Friday, it was an especially good reason to make (and eat!) cake. Sometimes I can hardly believe it. We survived the first two years! Some days, I wonder how...

    There are many milestones in life and wedding anniversaries are among the most joyous. It seems more common nowadays to hear about people splitting up, rather than staying together. That's why, when a wedding anniversary comes along (whether it's yours, or someone you know) it's always nice to...

    Every year, I like to make and gift something to some of my coworkers. A long time ago, I made lavender bath sachets and scented bath salts. I don't have as much time on my hands now (gee, I wonder why?) so in the last few years, I've made baked goodies to gift. I'm not sure if you know this...

    For a family potluck at my sister-in-law's house, I offered to bring dessert. At first, I was going to make a layer cake, but when I heard that there were going to be 30 people there, I thought that cupcakes might be a more prudent choice. I knew right away that I wanted to make a cupcake with...

    I know that this isn't exactly "current" but I thought I would write about it anyway... Baby E had his first birthday in June and we decided that we should probably have a party for him. Use it as an excuse for all of our friends to get together... We thought we would do a simple barbeque with...
