Hi there! I feel a bit like a ghost coming back from the grave to haunt my former life – it’s been a while since my last post, yes? Somehow I thought I might still carve out a little time here on a regular basis, even after little dude came along, but I think perhaps I was, well, wildly optimistic. For the most part I’m just Continue reading
Come on over and meet him, here.
Well, this was a heck of a year, wasn’t it??? Natural disasters, man-made nightmares, a presidential election . . . phew, I’m worn out from it all. It’s time to move on, pack up the holiday decorations, clear out the cobwebs and start fresh again.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned this a time or two (note to self, add “stop whining” to resolution list) Continue reading
This time of year has always been my favorite – I love the change in the weather (yes, even here in soggy Portland), I love the feeling of wrapping up the current year and preparing for the new one, and I love the food. FOOOOOOOOOOD. Turkey and stuffing and potatoes and rolls and pie, oh my – followed by Continue reading
So, it’s October. And I’m 6.52 months pregnant. Yes, pregnant, again. Have I mentioned that? Continue reading
I’ve been writing a lot of blog posts in the shower lately. Well, not *literally* writing them . . . showers and computers don’t coexist peacefully, after all.

Ten months old already!
More cute Easter pics on the Adventures of Chloe blog . . .
When I had my chocolate business, people would often ask me what my favorite chocolate holiday was – Christmas? Valentine’s Day? But oddly enough, it was always Easter. I loved making Continue reading
UPDATE 5 APRIL 2012: Hold the phone, people! I just made these again with a different recipe – adapted from Five Flavor Sugar Cookies, over at Cookie Madness – and they were The Bomb. I do not say this lightly. The mix of vanilla, lemon, rum, and coconut works perfectly to make these cookies taste like Easter and spring all wrapped in one neat little package. Photos and recipe in this post have now been updated with the new recipe. If you want just a plain old, plain old version you can use the sugar cookie recipe from the Sugar Cookie Bites with Nutella Nests post. Now go forth and bake!
Yesterday I was taking pictures of the sweet miniature daffodils at the park near our house. Today, those adorable little daffys were covered in snow. Snow! In March! At sea level! Pbblllt. I’m ready for spring, people. Continue reading
