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. …
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?]…
Just as all the research said, succulents propagated from leaf cuttings take a little bit longer to grow- but I gotta admit I did not think it would take a full two years for these guys to actually grow big enough to plant/give away. I’m working on a full start-finish post, with before and afters and whatnot, but in the meantime, here’s some photos- I’m fairly proud….
To anyone who stiill visits this site,
It’s obviously been quite a while since the last post (nearly six months? eek!) and while I haven’t been able to post about it, I’ve been cooking and baking a ton. Okay, maybe not a ton, but a decent amount!
The point is, I’m working on updating this blog, both in adding content and maybe a little spring cleaning, so stay tuned!
And if my empty promises are perhaps not convincing enough alone, let’s just say some of the items recently coming out of my kitchen have been cinnamon chocolate-ganache macarons, lemon ice cream and cappuccino brownies…
