So let’s see. Right now I’m staring at twelve gallons of paint that I neatly set up against a wall. I’m leaving for a week-long trip tomorrow morning, so coming home to cans scattered all over the place wouldn’t be my idea of a good time! In the last week or two I’ve painted: 2 hallways, 2 bathrooms (one of them twice), my kitchen, dining room, bedroom, and two guest bedrooms. If that wasn’t enough, I also painted a side[Read more]

 It started with a leak in the ceiling. Then the drywall came crashing down and it was determined that we needed a new water heater. Then I spent the next several days patching the hole. Then I got spray texture all over the surrounding walls and needed to paint. Then half of the paint peeled off when I went to remove the painter’s tape. And so on.

I would like to thank The Great British Bake Off for introducing me to this dessert. For those of you[Read more]

Irresistible Raspberry Pie

Hello, my friends. May I interest you in another fruity, summery dessert? This one was a blast to make because I was able to teach myself two new skills: First, how to make a lattice pattern on the top of a pie (way easier than it looks) and second, that when it comes to fruit pies, FOLLOW ESTABLISHED RECIPES. I figured out that the reason all of my pies were coming out with soggy bottoms, burnt crusts, under-baked crusts, liquid fillings, dry fillings,[Read more]

Key Lime Pie: A Recipe Review

It’s March here in Texas, and while I definitely a cake gal nowadays I cannot even begin to tell you how much I miss this pie.
