I really like your new fall line of pajamas and old man’s bed jackets. Does that outfit come with a cigar?
My dad sent me some beautiful wool from Japan along with some yummy ramen and green tea. We are performing on the road this week in the quad cities about 3 shows a day and it is goin to be cold and exhausting, so I wanted a really warm, wooly cowl. I accidentally sewed it inside out, but I rather like the seams showing, so I might leave it! Here it is made an hour before I left for the airport!
Marianna and Stacy in Rioult have been stressed about putting together our children’s show in Lehigh. I thought I would make them stress relieving eye pillows with some lavender from the farmers market! I think they will be enjoying them on our week long tour and on tours to come!
I used an old Bon Appetit recipe circa 1999 for pear maple crumble with a few substitutions. I used pecans instead of walnuts, a few pinches of fresh ginger(zing!) and less maple syrup since the pears were so juicy.
What is the difference between a crisp and crumble anyways?
Crisp — a deep-dish fruit dessert made with a crumb or streusel topping and baked. The main difference I see is that this one contains oats in most instances.
Crumble — a British dessert in which raw fruit is topped with a crumbly pastry mixture and baked. One reference says a crumble is like a crisp, but not as rich.
Made a chocolate souffle to celebrate 2012! I forgot to butter and sugar my souffle pan so it didn’t rise as much, but it was still yummy as heck.
I tried some reasonably priced trader joes dark chocolate and I’ve decided I won’t spend the money again to get some high end chocolate!
I can’t see any good reason to get a double boiler so I used this stunt double bowl on top of a saucepan. When it was all done, Dave dumped a bunch more sugar on his last few bites. Someone has a sweeter tooth than me!
