Oh hey there! Yeah, it’s been a while- nearly a year actually. I could easily go on about how various components of life got in the way of cooking regularly (let alone blogging) but isn’t that always the case? I think it is, so let’s just jump back in: I spent most of this summer doing not so fun stuff (medical tests, job hunt, bleh) but in August, my dad and I took a road trip up to Maine. It was pretty great, the weather was lovely, we ate lots of fresh produce and seafood (I may have gotten a little carried away over wild blueberries), took a boat ride (I learned so much about lobsters!) and best of all, took a LOT of photos. …
Last installment in my Ultimate Chocolate Cake nomcast series airs today! We’ll be covering assembly and frosting, check it out here on Thursday 9/15 at 3pm EST.
It’s me, Zoë, again, writing to let you know about this new thing I’m doing over on Nom (ya know, that other place where I ramble about food/baking?): weekly series on recipes, mostly ones that are a bit on the complicated side and benefit from being broken down into segments. This week I’m revisiting an old favorite, crack pie! The post/recipe on the site can be found here, and the part one of the “series” can be found here (warning: it’s long, and I ramble, aka the usual) and today at 2:30pm EST is part two. Tune in on my nom channel, Baking Without Pants (yeah, same name) for the rest!
For the full recipe, instructions and tips, click here to view it on my Nom channel. Happy Independence Day!
Hi all! If the title of this post wasn’t clear, this is to promote my first Nom-exclusive recipe, Strawberry Rhubarb Basil Syrup (no, I couldn’t come up with something shorter). As of now I haven’t worked out how to automatically sync my Nom posts on here (aside from the link in the menu on the right), so until then you’ll just have to put up with me promoting it here.
Apologies / Enjoy
So yeah, it’s
March May now. [Like most posts on the site, this is belated] That’s weird. To the point where I’m still not fully used to writing down 2016 in my notebooks. Plural. Yes, because despite the fact that computers and the internet have all but replaced traditional journals/diaries, newspapers, calendars, etc, I still still do that arcane thing where I hold a pen over a piece of paper and write down crazy things like appointments and to-do lists. I don’t want to scare anyone, but sometimes I even write down texts or emails and then MAIL them to people. In an envelope. With a stamp. [To be fair, currently my stamps are Harry Potter themed, so who wouldn’t feel like a baller sending those out?]…
