I am so tired. So. Tired. My routine, as of late: 6 AM - Wake up. Shower (optional). 6:30 AM - Begin working on projects. A cookbook (not mine, someone elses. But still, I’m REALLY excited about it!), wedding invitations, menu edits… the list goes on. 8 AM - Finish getting ready in haste. 8:15 AM - Ride bike to work (about 7 miles). 9 AM - Arrive at work. Work, work, work. 6...
I don’t normally like to post lesser-quality photos on here. You wouldn’t believe all the things I bake that are frankly just too ugly to share with the world. Today I am going to make an exception to that rule. These pancakes kick ass. My boyfriend told me they were the best pancakes he’d ever had.

I wanted to share my latest wedding beauty. This one is a guestbook print for Daniella and Dan who are getting married in one month exactly. The idea is that the guests sign their names on the place where they’re from. We put a special little heart on New Orleans, since that’s where the couple are getting married. We had this screen printed by a local outfit, Phantom Chicken...

Even when you put in some of the stranger ingredients it gives you a long list of recipes, all with really gorgeous photos. As a someone who...

However, I did get to dig up all my little potatoes, and I was completely satisfied with all my sweet little purple and gold spuds. Maybe I’ll make a frittata?
It’s been a long, busy week. I started the new job this week. And yes. I LOVE IT! The people who work there are awesome: creative, fun and friendly. And I feel like my skills are finally being put to good use. It’s a good feeling. So, naturally, I wanted to make a breakfast this week that was well rounded, to help me get my day off to a great start. Inspired by my new bible (Good to...
Salted Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. I needed something truly wonderful to take into work, to give to my coworkers on my very last day working there. I needed a way to let them know that working with them has been an absolutely incredible blessing. That it has made the last year and a half fun and entertaining. And that I appreciate every ounce of support they have given me in my...
