So, what to do, what to do……..it snows…..every other day, and when its not snowing,it’s sub-zero and not fit for man nor beast! But the blessing in this, is that, well really there are two blessings…….. Snow Days …..yeah! and Baking….yeah!

I have a renewed joy in baking these days. There was a time when baking was not on the top of my list. See, I was a bakery manager at a local grocery store for a number of years, and after awhile the joy of it kinda disappears.


I always joked that I was a “fake and bake” baker. So many of the products you buy in grocery stores these days come par baked or totally baked and you finish the process or combine items to makes what really can be some amazing items. I remember one of my regular customers asking about the cream puffs that I sold like crazy. She thought that I made them myself, when in reality, the shell of the cream puff came pre baked and frozen, so all I had to do was thaw them, cut them in half, use the bavarian cream filling from the 35# bucket, melt frosting from another bucket and drizzle it across and……. oh la la a cream puff.  Continue reading “Almond Poppyseed Cupcakes-Almond Buttercream Frosting”

So it’s “Date Night Dinner” day…………my thoughts have been on pasta lately. Maybe its the weather……freezing. Plus I have had several days home from school………sub-zero temps……..so I had some time on my hands. I was looking over some of my old recipes trying to decide what the pasta should be. Then Tim reminded me of a pasta that I had made when we first were married. Which hasn’t been all that long ago as we have only been married for a little less that 3 years. I will share the whole silly crazy story on Valentines Day.

But if you have been following the blog, you will remember that Tim’s sense of taste is not perfect, due to an accident. I try to make things spicy without being crazy hot. This dish has the pasta I have been craving and the spice for Tim. Continue reading “Pasta Puttanesca”
