A Cast Iron Skillet & A Camera I’m an herb collector. My pantry shelves are lined with jars of everything from butcher’s broom and witch hazel to marshmallow root and violet leaf. I buy them in bulk, arguably compulsively. I burn them, drink them, cook with them, bathe in them. I write quick poems & prayers with them. | Recipes from a Young Lawyer Blondie Layer Cake with White Chocolate Icing Caitlin celebrated her birthday last week. And in preparation of the big day, I scanned my collection of recipes and cookbooks, searching for the perfect layer cake. Last year I made her the pumpkin crepe cake. The year before that, the butternut squash layer cake. This year, I decided, it was time to stray from the harvest theme.

Amy’s Cookbook Finds: Sweet Confections {+Giveaway!} « SWEET DESIGNS – AMY ATLAS EVENTS I think you all know by now that I have a slight obsession with cookbooks.

But, my clever 7-year-old, Alyssa, had an even better idea, “How ’bout we make little poptarts and put them on a stick like Cinderella?” ‘Cinderella’ here isn’t the fairy tale princess, it’s my Alyssa’s favorite blogger (and one of mine)–the delightsome Angie Dudley of Bakerella–creator of the original cupcake pop, and author of the new book Cake Pops . Bakerella’s original idea for a cupcake-on-a-stick was an overnight sensation, landing her a guest spot on the Martha Stewart Show, and a mulitude of other incredible opportunities to collaborate with top-notch companies.

Blog Index A confession: I've been going through a lot of changes as a person these last few months. Part of it stems from finishing my 5th and 6th books The Happy Herbivore Guide to Plant-Based Living and Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings (out next month and this November).
