I am honestly ashamed of how long it has been since I have last posted. I admit, I haven’t cooked much in the past couple months. Life got the best of me and completely took over. At least I had time for a bit of baking over the holidays.
We’re now settling into our new home and the adventures of ownership have begun. Today we were supposed to have a new refrigerator delivered. As I am sure you can assume from the supposed to…it did not happen. Luckily, my new dishwasher arrived in perfect condition last week, so maybe now the time spent hand washing dishes can go back into blogging?
The saddest part for me of the new fridge not arriving? In an attempt to make leftovers tonight, I discovered the old fridge has progressed from inconveniently sucky to ruining food. The leftovers I had intended to heat were apparently in the line of fire for an ice melt, and they were full of yucky water.
What better way of making a bad day go away than a slice of homemade pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream on top.
I have to thank photographer Joy Moody for my newest obsession. Not just whipped cream, but whipped cream with confectioner’s sugar. And using the leftovers in my coffee. I don’t have a specific recipe for you. Whipped cream for 2-4 is about 1/3 cup heavy cream, a big spoonful of sugar, and a pour of vanilla extract. I use my Bamix to make it in a flash with no mess. And then I happily lick the blender clean while PTB thinks I am still slaving away making real whipped cream.
I would tell you my new year’s resolution is to get back onto posting everyday, but seriously… I am having a baby in two months. I am not going to let myself down. But I am going to try and get back into the swing of things.
