I've got a new place!

Blogger's been a fine blog host, but it's time for some changes so…

I've packed up my rolling pin and moved!

Come check out my new place…

Can't wait to have to you over. I'll have treats waiting!

Bake at Work!

I was inspired by this Lifehacker article to make some waffle cookies. (I've been reading Lifehacker a lot lately!)

The title of the article is Make Cookies in 90 Seconds with Your Waffle Iron.

I tried both of the recipes that the article linked to and while the oatmeal chocolate chip ones (top) seem a bit more novel, the tried and true chocolate waffle cookies tasted better to me.

Anyway… I thought… depending on the type of place you work… it might be fun to take your waffle iron to work and serve these to your co-workers fresh baked. I think maybe I'll try it this week. You gotta do something to make work more fun, right?

Etsy's Front Page - WooHoo!

One of my vintage finds, a bottle of Farley's On Tops sugar was featured on Etsy's front page treasury!

Thank you to Ashli from The Vintage Patisserie who created the treasury!

Be Warm

It's -3º here with a windchill of -13º.

Sounds like most of the US is in the same boat.

It's a good day to stay home, drink coffee and bake.

In a search for warm drinks, I found a link from Lifehacker to a Free Starbucks Coffee Recipe E-book. Think I'll try their recipe for hot chocolate ('cause that's the only drink recipe that I have all the stuff for) and the Streusal Crumb Coffee Cake.

Have a warm and cozy weekend!

The middle or the edge?

"Happiness is like a butterfly which, when pursued, is always beyond our grasp, but, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you." –Nathaniel Hawthorne
Happy New Year!

My word for this year is SIMPLIFY. I'm getting organized, getting focused, getting rid of all the excess crap and then…

I'm taking it easy and going with the flow.

So… simple brownies with stenciled powdered sugar seemed like the perfect New Year's treat to go along with my simple, no-nonsense attitude.

Do you fight over the middle brownies or the edge brownies at your house? I guess we're lucky. My daugher prefers middles but the rest of us don't really care. If you are a household of "edge lovers"… check out this All Edges Brownie Pan from Think Geek.
Isn't that fun?!
