Pistachio Cranberry Cookie

December 8, 2009

Ok, i guess the ingredients listing is a no brainer, right??  I mean, I pretty much spelled it out on my title.  Yup, that’s me…marketing GENIUS. I’ve been trying to come up with a cookie recipe that would win me $100. I’m not sure if this one will do it but judging from the 5 […]

LAUSD Coffee Cake

November 30, 2009

A couple of months ago, I hosted a brunch for a few of my friends from high school [well, technically we’ve all known each other since elementary school].  One of my friends brought a coffee cake to the brunch.  All of us were slowly eating it because it tasted so darned familiar. “I’ve had this […]

Happy Thanksgiving Disasters

November 26, 2009

I had finished the cranberry sauce, the dough for the dinner rolls, candied yams, apple pie and was waiting on the pumpkin pie when disaster struck.  Have you guys ever seen what a pumpkin pie looks like upside down on the floor?? Well, now you have. It looks like BARF. Happy Thanksgiving from my family […]

Suzi’s Cookies & Cream

November 24, 2009

I’m not a big fan of mousses, parfaits, or anything like that.  This week has been insane for me [as it is with many people throughout America] so when I first heard of the office potluck, my first inclination was not to participate. That is, until my friend and colleague, Suzi, from Oklahoma City decided […]

The Pioneer Woman Book Signing, Los Angeles Edition

November 23, 2009

I didn’t even know about Food, Home, Photog blogger Ree Drummond’s book signing until Saturday night when I saw it tweeted by @WhatsGabyCookin. I had a copy of Ree’s book that just needed to be signed.  The only thing is that I’ve never waited in line for anything other than a Sample Sale. I just […]

Chocolatey Chocolate Cookie

November 19, 2009

I’m about 3 weeks away from a Bake Off Challenge at my work.  Prize is a $100 gift certificate.  I can’t lose this.  I need to win.  For no other reason than I’m just that kind of person.  I’m searching through my recipe box and am ramped up to be in a frenzy of baking. […]

Top 5 Reasons to visit Lisbon, Portugal

November 16, 2009

I had no idea what to expect when I first hit the “purchase” button on my flight to Lisbon [and returning from Barcelona].  Lisbon had been on my “places to visit” list mostly because I didn’t know a proliferation of people who’d actually been there. So, on to my Top 5 reasons [in no particular order]: Reason […]

Postcards from vacation…

November 12, 2009

I am compulsive about printing out labels with addresses of my friends and family.  That’s usually one of the first things I print out and it’s the 2nd thing I take care of on my vacation. So you can imagine how horrified I was when I realized that I totally forgot to print out and bring […]

Ola, Lisbon!!

November 11, 2009

Admittedly, I probably should have practiced or learned some key phrases in Portuguese but it appears my mix of English, Spanish, Italian, & French seems to be working for me.  Well, kinda.  I probably shouldn’t try to mix it all in one conversation.  That’s probably working more against me than it is for me. Moving […]

Chocolate Chip Cookie [MONSTER]

November 6, 2009

I love sweets.  I just can’t get enough of it.  I’m sure that I’m going to have diabetes within the next 5 years.  I’ll still be shocked and dismayed when it happens.  One of my favorite sweets to nibble on are chocolate chip cookies.  Crispy, chewy, chocolate-y. I can eat a dozen of them all […]
