pioneer breakfast

so, to celebrate our pioneer heritage and the day off that utahns get, we decided to have a pot-luck breakfast. i made blueberry muffins with a lemon glaze/sugar topping, nicole made super good crepes, chris made yummy potatoes, michelle made delicious eggs, and alish brought juice to round it all out. this is a plate kyle put together to showcase/partake of the goods.

here's to our pioneer ancestors who came to utah and in turn, unwittingly gave us a day of from work so we could eat wonderful carbs.

ginger + chocolate = even better?

so, i didn't have time to make the gingerbread, but with that on the brain i made these delicious little guys. always a hit.

the recipe is posted here. i used chips instead of chunks, cause i'm lazy. and if you bake them longer than 10 minutes, they are not soft enough. which my old roommate, julia and i both learned on different occasions when we first made them. so, 10 minutes, and they are perfect.

ginger + bread = love

ok, so my weekend plans to go away aren't going to work out, so while working on websites for some of my lovely friends, i will try to get back on the baking wagon. i've been wanting to make this for a while.

it's this gingerbread recipe from the tartine bakery in SF. juliann and kathryn gave me this recipe book and i've been dying to make so many recipes from it. that place is heaven. i can't wait to visit home again in two weeks!

if the recipe turns out, i'll post the recipe and give you my results. if not, i never posted this.

j + c

i haven't posted this week because it's been wedding/family week 2007. my brother, justin, and my delightful friend, caroline may got married on 07.07.07 and it's been a whirlwind week. i thought i'd post pictures of the insanely good cake natasha made for the bride and groom. it was chocolate with blueberries in the middle. so incredible. everyone was loving it.

fast food nation

just cause i bake a lot, doesn't mean i don't like sorta ghetto food.

this post is my ode to del taco...

i always get either the bean and cheese burrito with green sauce, or this little number up here. fish tacos. SO GOOD.

oh yeah, and i REALLY love their straws.

cake on a platter

i haven't baked in a while due to my out of townness and subsequent tiredness. so, i will post these pictures of what i intend to put my next cake in to display.

this lovely cake platter was a birthday gift from my good friend, broek. i've been wanting one of these for forever and she didn't even know it! anyway, shout out to my homegirl who blesses me with her great taste in gifts.
