Coconut Flour Carrot Cake Donuts

One of the things I've been doing in my free time is watching my friend's super adorable new German Shepherd puppy, Otto. He's pretty much the cutest thing ever. I kind of forgot HOW MUCH energy puppies have, and now I know that my dog can never, ever die because there is no way I can ever have a puppy in my house. I kind of like my blinds, and my shoes, and my couches, and everything else I see chewed up in my poor, poor friend's house. One puppy might be worse than quadruplet human babies.

Soba Noodle Salad

A New Chapter

Well, I wanted to share a recipe with this post, but I had a pretty tragic week in the kitchen and had two utter recipe failures in two days. The first was a soba noodle salad that didn’t soak up any of the dressing and ended up pretty flavorless. I’m not sure if I should…

Harvest Fridays – I’m alive!

Oh, hey! I’m alive! Yep, it’s true. I made it through the new year. I do still exist. Nick and I flew out to Boston for the holidays and I pretty much abandoned everything else. I had a few posts ready to work on while we were on vacation, but once we got there I…
