Coconut Almond Scones

This was originally a recipe for coconut scones with optional chocolate chips, but guess who didn't have coconut milk or coconut flavoring in their house? But thankfully, I had both almond milk and almond extract, the flavors of which make the closest thing to ambrosia I've ever tasted. (That would be marzipan, but these scones…

No-Bake Chocolate Haystacks

You like chocolate? Coconut? Peanut butter?? You're in luck. Look what I've got for you: You don't have to bake these little delights, so they're super easy, and yummy whether hot or cold. Also for those observing Passover this week, they're unleavened!! 😀 An alternative to endless matzah brickle (my Jewish people say "Baruch Hashem!").…

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

So, I'm more of a cookie baker than anything else. Cookies are my buzz. Also, since my "pastry" posts are more popular than my "poetry" posts, you may be seeing more recipes than poems in the future. (But never fear, fellow poets! I plan on putting a poem up tomorrow) Let me know in the…

Black Bean Brownies Recipe

I know I haven't posted anything in a while. I offer no explanation or defense. I made these on a snowy day. I pulled them hot out of the oven, and ran upstairs for my camera. When I came back down, they were already half-gone. (Or half-there, if you see the glass that way) Anyway,…

Searching for a Miracle

I know it's been a while since I've been posting anything. The holidays have really got me caught up and busy. Right after finals, there were concerts, performances, meetings, travels, and a million other things to do. If it illustrates how busy I've been, I'll say that I haven't even had time to bake. I've been selling…

Autumn Spice Wordlessness (Poem)

Hands down, fall is the BEST season. So, for a while now I've been working myself up to write a poem about it. I have about two dozen of these, but most of them don't do the season justice. Like, not remotely. There I was, scribbling notes, and sitting outside, trying to trap all the…

Miniature Lemon Bun Sandwiches Recipe

First off, I want to say that this recipe appears to be simple, but if you're underprepared, as I was, it can be menacing. These delicious things... got the better of me. (Flashback to me scrambling in kitchen, screaming for more cardamom, stacking towers of dirty dishes, tripping on cat, and accidentally nuking North Korea)…

Darkness Poem

Hey, all! Quick poem I wrote while slightly depressed with the world. Those moods often end up being my writing moods. Just your friendly neighborhood reminder that life is always hard, but God put a million good things in it to make it easier. 🙂 There is darkness in my world of selfishness and scorn.…

Pumpkin Pie Recipe

"What," you may well ask, "sets this pumpkin pie recipe apart from any dozen of other pumpkin pie recipes I could find on the Internet?" That is a good question. Let me consider it.   Okay, here we go. First of all, this pie is spicy -- I crammed as much pumpkin and cinnamon into…
