Hello all,

So I am a lame blogger. That’s all there is too it. So tomorrow I am leaving for England and Ireland! (FREAKING OUT!!!! 🙂 And I tried to get enough posts to post while I am gone, but alas it didn’t happen, so for the next few weeks there will be no posts.

So sorry. Look forward to new inspiration, from the Irish 🙂

…"It Never Turns Out"…

In Note on January 2, 2010 at 7:29 pm

I am a complete failure. I made Martha Stewart’s Lemon Pound Cake yesterday, I have made this about 50 times mind you, and this time it just didn’t work, I tried to double the recipe I think that was my problem the chemicals didn’t work right. It was more like sponge, dense brick, with a little lemon tossed somewhere in there, not a lemon pound cake.
So this morning I was eating my breakfast and drinking a large cup of coffee, and looking at the mass amount of lemon mess sitting on the counter, staring at me whispering in my ear, “you are a failure!” as if the cake didn’t rub it in enough, my dad came into the kitchen and asked, “why doesn’t any of your food ever turn out?” Now mind you I am used to this kind of flack from my dad, he prefers Burger King over a risotto, with a side of salad. But it kept going…”It seems like you come up with the greatest recipes, but it never turns out.” The words came off his tongue like fire out of a dragon’s mouth. NEVER?!?! They turn out all the time! I thought. He kept talking, “Do you just not fallow the recipe? What’s the deal?” Lucky I kept my cool until my mom reminded him that he came into the kitchen looking for a paint brush, not to lay into me about messing up 4 cups of perfectly good flour.
I sure every chef has that one person in their lives that likes to point out everything that goes wrong in their food. In my case it’s my dad.
Any way, making stir fry for dinner, one of my dad’s favorite dinners. Hopefully he’ll like it, but probably not.

I will survive!!!

Much love,

Hello my faithful readers! SO sorry about not posting this past Monday, with Thanksgiving prep and all, and then my family and I went to the coast for the weekend, so I was post-less.

Come back Monday! Oh and happy December 1st! (I can’t believe it’s Christmas time!)
