HEY! Cool site: I’d love to see another update about your garden! I am in Oakland, growing using a bio-intensive method. My lettuce just gave way to sprouting & your photos really helped me – thanks! Check out my garden at http://apophthengesthai.com/ is you like, I’d love any help or advice. BTW – where in Texas are you? Apparently Houston is the same growing zone but I don’t think they get frost, so I can’t tell where you are.. 😀

I was shocked when one of my dearest friends stocked her wedding registry with baking supplies. We lived together in college, and she hardly even cooked rice! I jumped at the chance to buy up all of the cake tins, jelly roll plans, cupcake tins…and then wanted to include some of my family’s favorite baked good recipes. My mom had me employed before I could barely reach the counter, so finding a few new recipes to copy down for her on your site will make a great addition to both of our repertoires!

I live in Spain and buy things like packable brown sugar, pure vanilla extract, food coloring and holiday candy before I go back. I can’t cook for anything, but always win over my husband with homemade brownies or cookies (even though hand mixers are nowhere to be found!) I spend way too much time blending ingredients.

Happy to have come across your site and can’t wait to try a few recipes!
