It’s not a secret. Food blogging made you me fat. All of those chewy cookies, decadent cakes, and cheese laden casseroles over the past five years have left me sporting the largest size of jeans I’ve ever worn in my life. Quelle horror! Not only am I teetering on (OK crashing into) the wrong side […]

I found this recipe several months ago and wanted to wait to try it when strawberries were actually in season in Massachusetts.

“Re-dunk-u-lous” Peach Muffins

July 10, 2008

It has come to my attention recently that there literally dozens of foods that I was too stubborn to try growing up that have now been elevated to weekly staple status in my kitchen.

Banana Muffins

January 14, 2008

One of the really fabulous things about working for a college in Boston is that I get Snow Days! Obviously I had to take complete advantage of this luxurious and unexpected long weekend so I decided to make some muffins. I was also in desperate need of some cooking redemption as both recipes that I […]
