Sugared cranberries: snappy, sparkle, and pop.

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Oh! Yes. Hi. It’s been a while hasn’t it? So how have you been? … Mm hmm. … Mm hmm. … Oh really? And you had to have Him/Her/It removed from your home/office/kidney? Well I’m glad you’re coping. I feel a little bad for It/Him/Her, but whaddya gonna do. What about me, you ask? I’ve […]

Drommar: Swedish dream reindeer antler cookies.

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

Actually just deer antlers, not reindeer antlers. I thought reindeer antlers sounded more, oh, Christmas-y. At least until we get to the part where we eat them. Several years ago I bookmarked a Gourmet recipe for Drommar, or Swedish Dream Cookies, because it called for coconut, which I love, and ammonium carbonate, which piqued my […]

The return of fruitcake, fruitcrack.

Wednesday, December 19th, 2007

Oops. I did it again. Before I get into another fruitcake story, a reminder that Menu For Hope ends this Friday and we’ve already raised $44,000. Or rather, we’ve only raised $44,000. We can do better! Go! Go and bid right now! Just don’t go and bid on what I bid on because I wanna […]

Fruitcake, fruitcrack.

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

I like fruitcake, but not just any fruitcake, no, I only like— Wait, what am I saying? I like all fruitcake. All fruitcake. If you ever wonder who buys those stale cakes at the grocery store every year, that would be me. If you spit out fruitcake because of the artificially-colored cherries and scream, “Who […]

Boneheads and ham bones.

Tuesday, December 26th, 2006

I had a bowl of ham bone soup this morning as I wondered about what to blog next. “Ice cream might be interesting,” I thought, as I scooped up some tender, pink ham that had fallen off the bone. “Maybe I could try making injera for the first time.” A big mouthful of hickory smoke-infused […]

How to be Asian on Christmas: sesame seeds.

Sunday, December 24th, 2006

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when out from the kitchen Came the crashing of cake pans and loud plaintive bitchin’; The oven mitts hung by the oven with care But cream, milk, and salt were spilled everywhere. The egg shells were nestled all snug in the trash, While I hastily gift-wrapped toy trains and some […]

Bulging bellies and other neighborly gifts.

Thursday, December 21st, 2006

Based on all the glittery holiday posts I’ve been reading, I think I’m supposed to be frying up crisp latkes, baking elaborate cookies, and constructing gingerbread houses that would make Martha Stewart gasp. I feel guilty that I haven’t. In fact, I let Thanksgiving go by without so much as a glimpse of turkey, pumpkin […]
