    So once in a while (or most of the time) life puts the brakes on my blogging and photography. I don't have a long post today, but I wanted to put up something to let you know that I haven't abandoned the blog! I've added some new props to my scant collection and have been attempting to learn a...

    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...

    We left off in part one with brushing the decorted mold with a layer of milk chocolate. By brushing with a silicone brush, I can see any bubbles in the mold and pop them before they harden and show up as blisters. Before the chocolate fully hardens,the perimeter of the mold is scraped clean...

    Okay, it finally happened. I succumbed to the holiday cookie mania sweeping blogs and the web this time of year. I feel guilty… and kind of dirty, like when you fall prey to one of those forbidden pleasures, but these cookies are so good I have to share them with everyone. Rich, chewy...

    Tis the season to be baking. Fa La La La La… This past week both my wife and I got off our butts and did some holiday baking and candy making. One of the items that I made are these tasty little Pistachio Bonbons. I love these things, but you really have to like pistachios to enjoy these...

    Just a quick post for this one. Pretty low on focus and energy reserves these days... Sometimes, all you want need is a slice of something is undeniably chocolate, without being cloyingly sweet. And if you can hide some veggies in it, why not? Especially if those veggies help to make the loaf...

    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...

    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...

    Baby E has had a really rough week with the flu... In other words, my world has been turned upside-down trying to find ways to comfort him when he has been literally uncomfortable. Waking every couple of hours needing to have me next to him has taken its toll on my sanity somewhat. I felt like...

    Just a quick one tonight. We're heading to my SIL's house for a get together tomorrow and I made these up to take along. We signed up to bring guacamole, tapenade, and chips (which we'll still bring) but you know me, I gotta bring something sweet... You can tell it's been a long week by the...

    So I signed up to bring snacks for tomorrow's work meeting, and as I've said before, I would rather be shot out of a cannon than be caught with less than way more than enough food to feed an army... First and foremost, I knew that I needed to dust off my macaron-making hat and give it a...

    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...

    Chocolate. The word itself is tantalizing and makes our mouths water. It is an ingredient that we not only use in a plethora of foods, but is also simply an enjoyable snack. Unfortunately, the origins of our chocolate are, more often than not, much more bitter than we would expect. Major...

    by: Chef Jim Berman The rise of contemporary television chef-dom has done little for the classics. Prime time recipes must fit neatly into their allotted time slots, sans commercial interruptions, but allowing for the back-up bands and viewer questions. What could be a forum for intense...
