In the Kitchen with iPhone

July 31, 2007

I love my iPhone. Honestly, if Apple designed and released a toaster I’d be first in line, but in all seriousness this phone is a fantastic gadget with countless uses beyond making phone calls and listening to Mandy Moore’s fabulous new album while I’m walking to the T. Surprisingly, a lot of the functionality of […]

Erin Cooks in Springfield

July 27, 2007

In celebration of The Simpson’s movie opening today (and for being one of those “lucky” kids who grew up watching The Simpsons way back in the 90’s) I give you the Simpsonization of Erin Cooks! I really like my hair! Obviously I should be a cartoon and not a human being. I think my favorite […]

Cookbook Review: The Tea Experience and White Chocolate Raspberry Bars

July 26, 2007

The Tea Experience, the latest publication from TeaTime magazine, offers a smashing array of recipes and images from tea rooms across the country that would make even the Queen herself drool (if Queens actually did such things). It’s a bit heavy on the Southern tea establishments (13 reviews to 5 actually) as the majority of […]

Oatmeal Scones

July 21, 2007

My obsession with scones began last winter after spending an amazing weekend in Burlington at a fabulous Bed and Breakfast called The Willard Street Inn.

Unfortunately my local grocery store is Whole Foods so there isn’t a box of Jiffy Cornbread allowed within […]

Keri Russell Makes Out With Nathan Fillion and Kicks Jeremy Sisto to the Curb Pie

July 13, 2007

I was finally able to see Waitress yesterday afternoon. The film was adorable and no, not just because of Keri Russell’s hair. Nathan Fillion was his usual brutally hot and quirky self. Jeremy Sisto was appropriately terrifying and sinister, and Andy Griffin, Adrienne Shelly, and Cheryl Hines were wonderful comic relief. But honestly, the centerpiece […]

Fake & Bake

July 3, 2007

So now the “big thing” in the cooking world this week is making your own butter, which reminded me of a truly ridiculous PowerPoint that I made for a history class that I took in college. My grandmother used to work at a living history museum called “The Norlands” where she portrayed a 19th century […]
