Frosting Fails

Recently I’ve gotten back into baking. For some reason, I went on a bit of hiatus for the past several years. I think in part it was our desire to eat healthier, and we really don’t need six dozen cookies for two people with little to no self-control. But, I really enjoy baking, and I’ve […]

I’m back! I took last week off – sort of intentionally, sort of unintentionally – because I spent the previous two weeks in Denver for my Annual Meeting and then a besties reunion. I did manage to blog a bit while I was working at the conference, but when my friends were in town I […]

Cologne: Please Love Me

If Christmas is a competition (which it totally is), Cologne wins. Hands down. This city has seven markets all differently themed scattered around the city. This was also the city which made my goal of collecting mugs from all the markets a bit crazy. Frankfurt had one. Cologne, seven. These markets were absolutely spectacular. Each […]
