I keep my MacBook on the island in our kitchen a lot and unfortunately it has caused me to develop a really bad habit of starting dinner and then getting completely distracted by the Internet. Sometimes I’ll become engrossed in catching up on Twitter, or Facebook, or maybe I’ll start chatting with a friend and […]

When I found this ice cream recipe I really wanted to alter it to use as a peanut butter treat to stir all of the leftover White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups into. But I struggled with whether or not I wanted to make it. You see the below ice cream base calls for using uncooked […]

Nutella Self-Frosting Cupcakes

March 18, 2007

I’m addicted to my rss feeds on google reader. I always read the food blogs folder first (even before my “celebrity gossip” selections — sorry Perez Hilton, food always trumps pictures of bald Britney and her adventures in rehab).
