I’m a sucker for novelty and my children moreso, so when I saw these floating around the internets, I knew I was going to end up making them, despite the fact that they look absolutely revolting. This is something the kids can help with, though mine didn’t. I stabbed veggie pup/hotdog pieces with dried pasta, […]

flaming ears of death

May 9th, 2009

You should know, by now, that everything in our house is flaming with habanero infusion. We’re addicts. As I pondered which chili powder to use in the Sunset grilled chili lime corn, I very quickly came to habanero. Why can’t we seed and devein and pulverize them in the mutilator and slather our ears with […]

is it iced coffee weather?

April 30th, 2009

It may be iced coffee weather where you are, but it is not, here. I’ve never been one to get caught up in trends, so I’ll be starting my iced coffee tonight as it takes at least 12 hours to make. If you’ve never tried real iced coffee – I don’t mean hot coffee poured […]

hey dad, you should eat organic

April 30th, 2009

A comprehensive list of Farmer’s Markets in Houston, Texas. In case you are in the area and hungry… Then wash it down with these wine winners from the Texas Livestock and Rodeo.

arugula pesto and a halter top

April 21st, 2009

Living in the inferno has us craving cold foods. We’re having arugula pesto salad to make a dent in the arugula that has been threatening to overgrow the house. The kids’ pasta was accompanied by clown faced salads of salmon (mouth), mushroom (nose), black berries (eyes), and red pepper (ears). Arugula Pesto – 1 bulb […]

we’re having a heat wave – slushies!

April 20th, 2009

It was a sweltering 92 degrees in San Francisco, today, and allegedly 95 in my neighborhood. Needless to say, my NoCal children are dying. Especially the kid who told me a few weeks ago when it was only 72 degrees, “Mom, is this what fire feels like?” So, aside from reapplying sunscreen and sitting about […]

time to make the bagels

March 31st, 2009

Facebook is a problem for me. I have no self control. And lots of friends who work next to ovens. All of this explains why at 8:30 PM my kids are bathed and in PJs (it takes time for the dough to rise between rests) but still running about the house with unbrushed teeth like […]

microwaves may be eco-friendly

March 26th, 2009

There’s an interesting article in Slate about how for certain meals, your microwave may be more environmentally friendly than your oven or stove top. I don’t find this groundbreaking, much of this is obvious, but it is interesting to see the numbers.

my two favorite things: cooking and stitching

March 26th, 2009

Somehow, the cosmos aligned bringing me all sorts of wonderful things on my birthday. Some of those things were presents – a gift certificate for Anthropologie, my favorite store now that thrift stores are inconvenient (kids); a starter sewing kit, which considering I’ve been sewing just about all my life seems like a funny thing […]

asparagus soup and salsa kinda fresca

March 23rd, 2009

This is turning into a food blog with my recent lack of sewing and continuous eating. But so be it. Girl’s gotta eat. Our school had a fundraising function Saturday night for parents only, and as part of that I helped prep the food for the event. One of the moms passed along her secret, […]
