Yes, this recipe was another inspired find via Pinterest. When will the intervention be scheduled? No, really, I’m not that bad. Honestly there’s a lot of junk swimming around the site now that it has become so overwhelmingly popular. That means that I get extra excited when I manage to come across an idea that […]

It’s almost November and I can’t believe I’ve been in San Francisco for over 5 months. It still has a very unreal feeling honestly, probably because I’ve been working from home for my old company in Cambridge the entire time.

I hope you didn’t actually think you could escape the holiday season without a pink cookie from me. These pink Christmas Tree sugar cookies are decorated with my traditional butter based frosting and sprinkled with a light dusting of delicate silver icing sugar.

Baked Feather Boa Doughnuts

November 11, 2008

Yesterday morning I got up at 6:00 AM so I could make Heidi Swanson’s baked doughnut recipe and deck them out in true “Erin style” with oodles of pink icing and coconut. Since I couldn’t bring true Top Pot Doughnuts back to Boston with me I decided I’d at least have them in spirit. Voila! […]
