vacation all I ever wanted…

July 30, 2010

Well, I have to say I’m rather disappointed with my output for July.  Between the heat wave (that just ended yesterday, swear) and several weeks of being sicker than I thought I was, reader request month was slow.  Really slow.  And now, we’re heading out the door at an obnoxious hour tomorrow morning for the best vacation of the year.  So with that, I’ve decided to carry reader request over into August.  I’ll finish up the requests that are outstanding now, and of course you’re always free to send more in.

Catch you in a couple of weeks!


heat wave hiatus

July 8, 2010

We’re in the middle of a record-breaking heat wave here in the Northeast.  It’s currently after 10pm and still 90 degrees outside, and this is the coolest day so far this week.  Anyway, what I’m trying to say in a clever manner is that the oven has been taking a bit of a break due to the horrific weather.  It looks like we’ll have a slight respite over the weekend, so I’m going to try to bake as much as I can to stock up for the upcoming week or so of continued stifledom. You can keep submitting requests, they are being reviewed and researched in the meantime!


July – reader request month!

July 1, 2010

Can you believe how fast this year is racing by?  What’s up with that??  Suddenly, it’s July.  The good news is, that means it’s reader request month!  I’m a little scared, and a lot excited about this experiment!  I’m putting my reputation (ha!) in your hands, so don’t do me wrong!  So, how does it work?

call to action!

June 15, 2010

Greetings, my little muffinheads!  I’ll be heading out shortly on a much-needed vacation, so the oven will be quiet for the next week or so.  While I’m gone, I’m assigning homework.  No, don’t run away.  Keep reading, it’ll be fine, I promise. Read the rest of this entry ?

Hello dear readers.  I haven’t forgotten about you, just having some technical difficulties with chocolate pound cake.  Not sure if I’m going to try it a third time, or move on to the next experiment.  More to come.
