The Chef requested a homemade cheesecake for his Halloween birthday. I think it turned out alright!

Daily Diversion #412: Pear Apple Crisp

I was just minding my own business while listening to The Clash and cleaning the kitchen. Then my stomach piped up and informed me that it was actually the perfect time to make Pear Apple Crisp. 

Nevermind that it would create extra cleaning for me. What a jerk!

It wasn’t wrong, though. 

Daily Diversion #393: North Market Morning

My husband has been out-of-town on business a lot (aka, our new normal). He’s home two days a week, gone for five. Rinse, repeat. We’re trying to do as much fun stuff as possible during each “weekend” (actually two weekdays off back-to-back). 

This morning we headed to the North Market, which is close to where we live (and even closer to my day job). We ate breakfast, which was immediately followed by lunch. Because, duh.

Daily Diversion #367: Scone and Tea

The last few days have been pretty stressful, so on Saturday I popped in to the fabulous bakery that’s just around the corner from my day job. I saved this scrumptious scone for this morning’s breakfast. Between it, a cup of my fave tea, and a good book…I’m feeling a tad better.
