I have a google alert set for various “candy” and “chocolate” keywords, so when articles are published about these subjects, I get an email notification.

Chocolate granola is the best idea I’ve ever regretted. It goes like this, see. Jason used to have an expensive addiction to breakfast cereals.

TWD: Great Grains Muffins

In trying to articulate my feelings about the Great Grains Muffins for this week’s TWD recipe, I decided that it would be easiest to explain with a visual aid.* If you will please refer to the above figure, it is evident that my enjoyment of a food increases proportionally to the degree to which said…

TWD: Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Hello, little blog. It’s been awhile. You’ve probably missed me, since the last post was about New Year’s Eve and it’s now the middle of January. You’ve been sitting around feeling unfashionably behind the times. I’m sorry. I haven’t missed you too much, since I’ve been doing lots of traveling and LOTS of dessert eating….
