Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Bread

One final post before my staycation sadly comes to an end.  Earlier this week I bought some zucchini to try a breakfast frittata recipe.  Unfortunately, I ran out of time and when I was organizing my fridge this afternoon I noticed that they were still in my vegetable drawer.  I had seen this recipe on … Continue reading

Bagel Making 101

Growing up on the east coast, and having lived in New York City for five years, I spent many a morning enjoying a delicious, doughy bagel.

Hungry? Grab a homemade Snickers!

Pinterest has officially taken over my life.  Back in December my sister-in-law mentioned the site during a drive down to Austin for a football Saturday.  She said I would be obsessed but at the moment, I didn’t get it.  It all seemed way too overwhelming and confusing, but I told her I would take a look.  At … Continue reading
