Treats for the Season, Part Deux

There’s something about Fall that makes Shepherd’s Pie even tastier. It’s a dish that tastes great year round, but when it’s colder out—-*chef’s kiss* A friend told me about a recipe that includes red wine. After trying that, I’ll never go back to any other recipe. Find a Shepherd’s Pie recipe that you like, orContinue reading “Treats for the Season, Part Deux”

Treats for the Season!

I was once an anti-pumpkin dessert person (save pumpkin pie, naturally). Maybe it’s a sign of getting older and crazier, but I’m pro-pumpkin dessert now. Not pumpkin lattes or pumpkin oreos. I’m no monster. But pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting? Yup. I didn’t use fresh pumpkin. I made these on a day I justContinue reading “Treats for the Season!”

Chocolate Cake

Shake It and Bake It

You know I can’t stop making stuff. Baking is my latest stress reliever. A way to challenge myself. A way to relax after grading papers. In terms of challenging myself, I’ve made raspberry cakes that looked as adorable as they did formidable: I also tried my hand at panna cotta. My friends and kids enjoyed,Continue reading “Shake It and Bake It”

The Empty Page

I’m floored to announce another non-fiction text from McFarland, forthcoming in 2023 or 2024: The work was inspired by a co-written article from 2021 in KOME, “Tug of War: Social Media, Cancel Culture, and Diversity for Girls and The 100.” My colleague and good friend, Allison Budaj, is co-editing this anthology with me for McFarland.Continue reading “The Empty Page”

Pocketful of Rainbows

I’m not really into baking cakes. For me, it’s too many steps to take for something I could buy from someone who can do it way better. Also, I’m not a big fan of eating cake. Cookies? All day, everyday. Cakes? Meh. However, for birthdays, I acquiesce to those I love. My seven-year-old requested aContinue reading “Pocketful of Rainbows”
