Baked Oatmeal, Muffin-Style

A while back, in the days of pregnancy #2, I posted a recipe for Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal.  I’m sorry to say that it has taken me this long to get around to trying the source recipe for this baked oatmeal thingamajig.  But let’s not dwell on my egregious shortcomings; let’s celebrate the fact that […]

Hearty Thai Wraps

You thought I’d forgotten about the food blog, didn’t you?  Or (gasp) COOKING ALL TOGETHER?  Fear not; we’re still here, eating regularly and cooking up a storm.  Everyone has that thing they return to after the baby is born that makes them feel like life is returning to a normal rhythm, and for me, it’s […]

Baked Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

With the little girl about to arrive, recipes for anything that can be made ahead of time (and in bulk) are valued.  I recently gave baked oatmeal a shot.  I mean, we already spend 30 minutes each morning making oatmeal with fruit and nuts (and cooling it to edible toddler temperature), so it was worth […]

Banana Cranberry Bread (with Bourbon!)

I’ve been secretly drooling over Joy the Baker’s blog ever since the Browned Butter Blueberry Muffins glory.  So many delectable things, so few excuses bake them!  (Also, my baby belly is plenty big without the extra help.)  But finding fresh cranberries on sale at the grocery this week was an excellent reason to peruse her cranberry recipes for […]

Browned Butter Blueberry Muffins

I am a pathological recipe tweaker.  Maybe I always knew this on some level, but this blog has made me accept it afresh. My name is Courtney, and I can’t resist messing with a recipe.  Please love me anyway. I try to resist as best I can with baking, though, at least until I’m very familiar with […]

Spiced Applesauce Cake

I have an absolutely fantastic cookbook called Canning for a New Generation, by Liana Krissoff.  I highly recommend it; she includes old classics (like raspberry preserves) and newer joys (like rhubarb & orange jam).  The book is broken down into the four seasons, then further divided into vegetables and fruits.  She also includes a ton […]
