This past week, I bought my first blender.  Yes, my very first blender.  I have resisted for a long time because I don’t like clutter and didn’t want to crowd an already small kitchen.  With the juicing and green smoothie craze–and because I tend to do what everyone else does–I finally caved and picked one up.  It seemed that the blender to get was the Vitamix.  But I couldn’t stand to part with…

This post is a full week late.  I meant to make this buckwheat chiffon cake (you read that right, buckwheat) for Mother’s Day and didn’t get to it in time.  I guess no point in making excuses now.  Growing up, my mom would buy me sponge cakes from the Asian supermarket.  They weren’t fancy or anything, but simple snack cakes that were light, fluffy and eggy.  My mom isn’t much of a baker…

Cookies are always a good idea.  For those long hard days, or when you simply want to enjoy a sunny afternoon, there aren’t too many better picker-uppers than cookies.  I always tend to gravitate toward the same type of cookies–chewy, moist, with a bite.  That usually means some kind of oatmeal cookie, which is probably why that’s the only type of cookie I seem to blog about.  And one of my…

Sadly, this won’t be an Easter post–but at least I have a picture of an egg. I haven’t had a new successful recipe recently (much less one for Easter), so instead I thought I’d share my trip to an eclectic, hipster bakery in San Francisco. It’s been almost two weeks since I made the trip to Craftsman and Wolves, and I’m still thinking about this place. A friend and I started our day in the…

Long wait to get this tuna poki bowl.  I’m so hungry I might inhale it (but not after posting this pic first!).

I am back!  I know you have all been waiting SO anxiously for a new post!  Every week I thought about how I needed to write up a post, and the next thing I knew, a whole month flew by.  What has everyone been up to?  Sometimes I can’t even think of what I’ve been busy with, but I know I must have been doing something.  Let’s see…sometime over the last few weeks, I took a croissant-making class…

Everyone loves cake.  For birthdays, weddings, graduations, and any special occasion, there is cake to make the event special.  Cake is synonymous with celebration.  But sometimes the cakes I really enjoy on any given day are the simple ones that don’t have a lot of adornment, yet are big on flavor.  These sometimes come in the shape of loaves or as bundt cakes, can be made with a variety of…
