About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

Yorkie, Avert Your Eyes

Every time I post a recipe, Yorkie claims I’m trying to kill her, so I figure I’ll let her know right know that she needs to just look away. 😀

I made this for a dear friend‘s birthday party the weekend before last, and then ended up down with the flu and just haven’t had […]

If It’s Fall, It Must Be Soup

Fall is totally soup weather in my mind. I love it. Hubby, however, is less of a fan. Unless, of course, it’s something like this – Lasagna Soup, originally shared by Cristi, and a permanent part of our rotation since.

First, brown 1 pound of Italian sausage. I used hot sausage tonight, but if you […]

Fabbo Mac & Cheese

OK, so, I posted something about this on Facebook last night after I made it for dinner last night. It’s a slight tweaking of one I got in my America’s Test Kitchen cookbook (Um. The 2007 one, I believe). It’s REALLY good, very simple (One pot! Yay!), and so cheesy you’d never guess it was […]

This Cake is (sort of ) a Lie

So, my friend Kashmir Knitter over on the Knittyboards posted this link the other day. A discussion ensued, including the logistics and likelihood of success in making it oneself. KK insisted that fondant was actually quite easy to work with, and even posted a link to a recipe to make it oneself from marshmallows.

So […]

Yes, Another Recipe.

I’ve been on a cooking kick lately. It’s amazing how much more cooking I do when I can actually be at home in the evening. 😀 I’ve got another one or two I do want to share, but I don’t want to overload you all, so I might make them but hold off on the […]

It’s Recipe Time Again!

I actually made and photographed this the other day, but while fighting with the laptop upgrade, I didn’t have time to post it.

These are one of my very favorite things to make. It’s my aunt’s recipe for Hot Beef Sandwiches, although I have also been known to sub in ground turkey with equal success. […]


So, yes, it’s opening night tonight, and I am bouncing off the walls, I’m so excited. But I made this for dinner last Saturday, with grand plans to blog about it on Sunday, but we spent SO much time at the theatre the next couple of days that I just got the pictures off my […]

Halloween 2008

OK, Halloween is about my favorite holiday of the entire year. Seriously – it’s theatre-geek heaven. 😀 This year, we went to two parties – one at Alex’s house on Friday night, and one at JMac’s on Saturday. Kris didn’t take his camera to JMac’s, but he got some pictures Friday night of the costumes, […]

Alton Brown is a F’in Genius

Anyone who has talked food and/or cooking with me is likely to know about my MASSIVE geek crush on Alton Brown. I’m still kicking myself that I’ve missed opportunities to see him in person in DC TWICE now.

Anyway, I used to watch Food Network ALL the time. Nowadays, the only never-miss for me is […]

I Love Gingersnaps

No, seriously. LOVE them. Like, if I was only allowed one kind of cookie for the rest of my life, you can keep your chocolate chip, and your oatmeal raisin. They are good, but I’ll take gingersnaps any day. The best store-bought ones I’ve ever found are the ones from Trader Joe’s – they have […]
