Are You Nuts Chocolate Powerballs

  We moved into our newly renovated home last week. From the garage. Just a hop, skimp and jump away. It was monumental. We were indoors. We had a TV (it is pretty darned important people and it can be sorely missed when you don't have it blaring to lull you to...

Daisy Cake

Blood Orange Muffins
Blood Orange Muffins

I recently bought a set of digital kitchen scales. It is like having a toy in the kitchen. I keep putting random things on it just to see what they weigh. It amuses me. It is addictive to predict what something will weigh just before you hoist it on the scales. It is...
