Luck O’ The Irish

March 10, 2017 | Recipes, Treats | No comment

  Taste the rainbow…. Is there anything that better conjures up childhood dreams of leprechauns, rainbows, and a magical fairyland than a bowl of sugary marshmallow cereal?? Lucky Charms were a rare occurrence in the Howe household, but I do remember a couple blissful mornings of a marshmallow induced sugar coma. So worth it. I like to… read more »

Baked Chocolate Donuts

Sick days are no fun. But, they are better when you make donuts!…. and eat almost all of them in one sitting. Ooops. I’m not going to claim these baked donuts are as tasty as their fried counterparts,  but they are pretty easy to whip up without the mess of trying to make a deep fryer in… read more »

I have a love/hate relationship with fall. It’s one of my favorite seasons, but it’s also the beginning of the end….. Winter is coming. But, the flavors! I absolutely LOVE squash and root vegetables in cooking, and delicata squash is one of my favorites. After a week in Vegas I was ready to have some vegetables… read more »

My friend Taryn rocks. Not once, but twice, she has come to Bend to hang out with me when I’ve found myself injured and Zach is out of town. We’ve got in down to a routine. We bake, watch movies, drink wine, and laugh a lot. I cannot express in words how great it is… read more »

Weekday Bread

This is one of my favorite bread recipes ever. Partially because it’s so easy and the bread is delicious every single time. And there is nothing better than homemade bread. Well, maybe the smell of homemade bread as it’s baking. This is a great weekday bread recipe because it has very minimal involvement. You can mix it up in… read more »

Really Good Weekend Muffins

March 20, 2016 | Breakfast, Recipes | No comment

There’s something about Sunday afternoons and baking. They seem to go together really well. And especially so this spring, as it’s been rainy most Sunday afternoons. I like it. Whenever I think of breakfast muffins I think of my friend Charlotte. She made glorious breakfast muffins AND had a knack for unique flavor combinations. These… read more »

I had to make a pie for Pi day. I’m just that cool. 3.141592653589793238462643383279501884197169399375105820974944592307816 I’ve made a few pies in the past, mostly on thanksgiving.

Chocolate Cashew Butter Cookies

March 2, 2016 | Recipes, Treats | 3 comments

I have to confess, the reason I decided to bake cookies is because I was eating spoonful after spoonful of nut butter with chocolate chips on top. Save me from myself! So, instead of just eating the nut butter + chocolate chips by the spoonful I thought baking them as cookies would make it more… read more »
