Meyer Lemon, Olive Oil, and Cornmeal Snack Cake

January 25, 2012 Breakfast

‘Tis the season for Meyer lemons and so I set out to make a lemon coffee cake. At first, I planned on one infused with rosemary, but all the recipes I found were crazy complicated and time consuming. I don’t have that kind of patience in the morning. So, I got out my mixing bowls [...]

Lemon Yogurt Muffins

September 20, 2011 Breakfast

As I was making these, I discovered that my baking powder was old. I mean old. Dead and gone. It expired in 2009. Has that ever happened to you? Once, when we were at the farm cooking dinner for the family, we found some cumin in the spice rack from the 1980s. You didn’t even [...]

Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes

July 24, 2011 Breakfast

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before, but I am a collector of mixing bowls. I really love a sturdy bowl, with smooth curves, that you can cradle in one arm while you stir with the other. Not that I ever do that. Nope. My bowls stay firmly on the counter while I mix. I [...]

April 29, 2011 Breakfast

Look alive, people. There’s a royal wedding happening today! In case you’re not as completely, hopelessly addicted to People.com as I am, you may not be quite so geared up for the nuptials between the beloved Prince William and Kate Middleton. Ah, young love.

Refreshing Lemon Sparkler

March 30, 2011 Beverages

  I was perusing my Southern Living magazine the other day and found a recipe for a lemonade cocktail of sorts. It sounded amazing, but (per usual) I didn’t have half the ingredients needed so I made my own version. I’m seriously beginning to wonder why I even bother with recipes. I never follow them. [...]
