Pumpkin Spice Roll Cake

Birthdays, Rocks, Cooking School, Retirement Plans, and Late Night Work Sessions

You know that old television show 7th Heaven?  Sometimes, I think I live in it.  I was woken up this morning by my five-year-old niece, two-year-old-nephew, and grandmother (their great-grandmother) calling a phone I keep beside my bed.  She (my grandmother) was watching the kids; they missed us and wanted to talk since we hadn’t…

I’ve Become Obsessed with Fine Cheeses

By now it should be no surprise that cheese in on my mind.  (I was excited for the suggested cheeses several of you left on the other post; thank you for those!)  I have a huge book on its way that details the different types of cheeses, how they are made, the flavor profiles, and more, which I can’t wait to dive into sometime next week.  I’m not quite so ready to begin actually making artisan cheeses ourselves, but I do want to add this topic to the list of things we know beyond the education that has been picked up through trial and error over the past few years due to our culinary pursuits.

The Energy Saving Investigation Continues

The Energy Saving Investigation Continues!

Thank you all for the amazing comments and suggestions you left on my post about my investigative project with the weird kWh figures I was getting from my utility company.  I’ve been so obsessed with the project I haven’t had time to write individual responses, but I did read every one of them and, in many cases, add it to a task list to check and / or immediately go out and spend some cash on a device that could help narrow down the problem.

Swedish Meatballs and Lingonberry Sauce with Last Night’s Episode of Breaking Bad

After my mom, dad, and youngest sister stopped by this afternoon for banana birthday cake, my brother and, later, my sister-in-law, came over for dinner.  We ended up opting for Swedish meatballs with lingonberry sauce and chunky red potatoes, while Tara, Aaron, and I caught up on last night’s episode of Breaking Bad, which none…

Joshua Kennon Birthday Banana Pecan Cream Cheese Cake

Banana Birthday Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Pecan Garnish

With me turning 31 this week (thank you all for the birthday wishes on this morning’s post!), Aaron offered to make any birthday cake I wanted.  Now that we’ve tried most flavors following the past few years of non-stop cooking and baking, I decided to go with something slight off the beaten path: A banana birthday cake, finished with a cream cheese icing and chopped pecans.

It’s a Hyper-Focused Project Day Today

Last night, I had this intense craving for a dish we made back in January, a caramelized carrot soup with peanut butter and cinnamon garnish.  I swung a deal where, I would get it prepared for me today if I agreed to prepare several loaves of whole wheat artisan breads that could be used over the next week for sandwiches and panini.  It seemed like a fair trade, so later tonight, I’ll be busting out the pans.  It was fun, because while the soup was being made and filling the house with this really unique, and hunger-inducing fragrance, I tried out the newly remastered Ducktales Game on PlayStation.
