While on a recent visit to my parents’ place, I braided some of their grass and came up with a pun name for the project, which we all know is crucial.  Braids of Grass at Low-Commitment Projects shows the documentation of that work.


Quad Chocolate Brownies

I make brownies all the time.  They’re my go-to comfort food.  I do not, however, usually make brownies for company.  They don’t seem fancy enough, plus I don’t want to share with more people than necessary.  Quad Chocolate Brownies change my mental calculations on this scenario–they’re so rich that I can’t happily eat more than two, and they’re so pretty that they’re company-worthy.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream

August 13, 2015

Another summer, another ice cream.  Most homemade ice cream is quite tasty, but this Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream received repeated praise, night after night, from the same consumers.  It will win the dessert competition, seriously.  And now I want to be invited to a dessert competition please.

Low-Commitment Projects: Floral Ceiling

August 10, 2015

Guess what–our bathroom is complete and exactly how I want it.  We’ve been living with a peeling ceiling for seven years (long story), but recently had it repaired.  I requested a flat surface since every other wall in our house has texture, then painted a Marimekko-inspired floral pattern on it.  See more of Floral Ceiling […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Bars

August 5, 2015

A few weeks ago, during The Massive Never-Ending Heat Wave of 2015, I craved chocolate.  Not a chocolate bar, mind you, but a baked treat with chocolate serving as an integral ingredient.  Instead, Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Bars.  They made a superb substitute and more than satisfied my chocolate appetite.

Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Parfaits

July 31, 2015

We’re friends with this couple who we used to see about three times a year for a few years.  This wasn’t acceptable because they’re some of our favorite people, and I’ve known them both since we were all 19.  When their daughter was born, we worried that we’d see each other with even less frequency, […]

Raspberry Danishes

July 29, 2015

Yes, I realize just how sad that single Raspberry Danish looks, all alone up there.  But, the reason for its loneliness is its deliciousness–all of its little pastry siblings were gobbled up too quickly to photograph, so you could count this one lucky to have lasted this long.  And yeah, this is a day-old danish–I […]

Milk Chocolate Cardamom Truffles

July 24, 2015

Just because it is summer and super hot doesn’t mean I don’t crave chocolate treats.  Yes, fruit and ice cream are great, and no, I don’t want to turn on the oven, but come on.  Chocolate.  So, let’s have truffles.
