Vacay extended!

Standard

I’ve decided to stay in Maine with the mamasita a few days longer, so I’ll be headed home midweek. I’m hoping to get back to my regularly scheduled posting habits next week, so stay tuned!

It’s been great to spend so much time with my mom, and I thank you all for your patience.

Truffle bar… cake?

Standard

I’m not really sure how to categorize this little beauty, aside from it being STUPID delicious. It’s no bake, and a perfect treat for Valentines day. This makes quite a bit of this delicious truffle cake thing, but wrap slices of this tasty treat in a piece of parchment paper and hand them out. (Just make sure to keep them cold)

This is seriously outrageously decadent, and delicious… with just a hint of warmth from the cayenne and cinnamon, and strong notes of orange. Seriously, so good. If you want to make it extra fancy, dust the outside of the loaf with cocoa powder, but even just naked, you can’t go wrong.

Also, just a few things of note, very quickly. A) CONGRATS to my friends Sam and Jay on the new addition to their family… they just welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world! B) This will be my last real post this week. Hopefully I’ll have another addition to the how to section on Friday, but after that, I’ll be offline for a week.

Thai-esque chicken stew

Standard

This recipe has a somewhat similar flavor profile to the Asian style chicken soup I made when this blog was fresh and new and shiny. However, it has quite a bit more kick, and is more of a stew than anything. In other words, it’s super stinkin’ tasty, and really filling and satisfying and soul warming. Just what the doctor ordered when feeling cruddy or in need of some comfort. Plus, it’s made in the slow cooker, so it’s mostly wicked easy.

I’m a terrible blogger…

Standard

So I got a new toy today… It was a much delayed Christmas gift. I am hoping that it will allow me to bring a little more spice to the blog eventually, but today has turned into the day for installing software, and playing. Thus, only two recipes this week, and likely only two for next week. The week after is for visiting the Mama, so I think it will probably be bereft of posts.

Wish me luck on getting used to this baby!
