CAKES AND COOKIES
The Mister and I road-trip (the whole 1.5 hours - whoa, I know...) to Cincinnati every few months to stock up on such yuppie essentials as Ikea and Trader Joe's. Incidentally, TJ's happens to be thisclose to The Cheesecake Factory, so we've developed this little tradition: We walk through the doors of TJ's, black out for about 40 minutes, and wake up in the car, less some unfathomable amount of money. We then eat away our sorrows with two slices of Cheesecake Factory bliss to-go.

I am but a humble self-taught photographer. Everything I know about photography I've learned through trial and error. A year and a half's worth, in fact. Every time I set out to shoot a new dish or dessert, I learn something new.
My favorite way to write about recipes or cooking on this site is by sharing how each recipe intersects my life.

I watched my Grandmother's face when she realized that I hadn't handed her a hard boiled egg but rather a cake baked inside a real egg shell. Her eyes were filled with wonder and I could envision what she must have looked like as a tyke the very first time she saw a red balloon float across the sky or the the trunk of a giant elephant spewing a stream of water. "Crack it on the table," I told her.
Glazed Doughnut Muffins Have you ever found yourself choosing between a doughnut or a muffin to start your day? Well now you don’t have to choose!
Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Oh how I love a treat that can be whipped up in about 15 minutes.
I don’t drink coca-cola.
I’m sorry. I know it’s Monday morning and you probably came here for some pretty pictures of food that you could glance at, and then move on with your day… and here I go thrusting warm, soft cinnamon sugar bread in your face.
The classic summer flavors of cherry and blueberry pies are staples of 4th of July celebrations.
The USDA released its new food pyramid the other day (which is actually a plate now instead of a pyramid), and I am sorely disappointed to report that cinnamon rolls did not appear anywhere on that plate. I think by now most of us know what should be on our dinner plate in terms of healthy, well-rounded nutrient-laden meals, but it is my considered opinion that our breakfast plate should include cinnamon rolls now and then. And not just any cinnamon roll, mind you, but how ‘bout a homemade cinnamon roll hybrid that is a cross between a cinnamon roll and cinnamon toast, is super easy to make and gosh darn delicious.
