I may have gone a little overboard...

I won't bore you with the details of how this all happened, but suffice to say there is a King Cake, some beignets, and a pot of gumbo in the kitchen.

Now if you will excuse me, Hannibal is on television.

A few good men and women

Now that Thanksgiving has passed, decorating for Christmas can officially commence.

For anyone who helps me there will be fresh baked cookies and mulled cider.

Impromptu Apple Picking

Forget what the calendar says about autumn starting on Sunday, it's clearly already here judging by the nice, cool weather we've been having. And the rains this winter and spring (along with some other factors) mean that this year the apple crop is the best it has been in a long time.

So to celebrate, tomorrow, apple picking, pumpkin picking, apple cider, and apple cider donuts.

I suggest that if you've never been apple picking you come, and even if you have you need to come again.
I seem to have been overzealous in my experiments.

Somehow I ended up with an explosion of chocolate candies in egg, lamb, and rabbit shapes. Chocolate/carob, peanut butter, sugar, cocoa butter/coconut oil... who knew that by combining these and other simple ingredients I'd be able to replicate Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs and the classic Cadbury Creme Eggs (complete with yolk!).

Of course now I need people willing to eat them.

And for an added challenge, they are free of allergens (except peanuts, and I made the creme eggs first as a precaution), and for the chocolate intolerant (Kyle) I made some of those too. Which was actually the main motivation, because Easter without chocolate just feels so wrong.

...I have clearly been watching too much Cooking Channel and Food TV. It is a good thing that I am returning to Columbia this summer.

Or maybe I should start a confectionary company.

I have too much time on my hands.
In preparation for Thursday's (unofficial) holiday, I am now taking baking requests.

Sweet pies, savory pies, cheesecakes (which are technically more of a pie than a cake), I am open to any and all suggestions.
I cannot believe I forgot to mention this sooner but I've just been so busy.

Doug, Wade, Everyone-

Once again it is that most glorious time of year when the Girl Scouts sell their famous cookies. If you were unable to place an order before the sheets were due, or if you find yourself desiring more confections, just let me know. Friday is National Girl Scout Cookie Day and there will be a truck making the rounds in New York City, but I also happen to know where the DX troop will be setting up shop for the upcoming weeks.

We have some incredibly adorable Daisies this year, too.

There's this one girl who has a marked physical difference though she has not yet manifested her powers and she's just the shyest thing. If someone with a physical manifestation (Yvette and Dori- I think she'd really take to both of you) would be willing to come bye while she's selling, I would really appreciate it.I'd let you know when that ends up happening, of course.

Dec. 1st, 2012

It's snowing. In the greenhouse.

I don't even know what to say.

Now the balance of all the plants is off. And I worked really hard to get them optimized.

Wanted: Helper Elves

I could really use some help decorating the mansion for the upcoming holidays.

Instead of going out and buying all the greenery to decorate the mansion with, I am putting my powers to good use. Growing things is fine, but fashioning wreaths and garland and hanging them is another. So if anyone has any free time and feels like helping, I need plenty of pine cones, needles, acorns- whatever we can gather really, and wiring everything together. I have one wreath made, it's the holly and ivy one on my door, but the mansion is quite large.

Oh. And I called a woman from back home and arranged for a live Christmas tree that will be planted after we are done using it. She won't be able to drop it off until next weekend though, which gives me plenty of time to bake up some ornament cookies. And in the meantime, I, and anyone who would like to help me, will be stringing up popcorn garland and bird seed-peanut butter-pine cones for all the critters that live in the woods nearby.

I admit, I also need ideas for observances other than Christmas. But the tradition of decorating one's home with evergreens is one that is quite ancient and the scent of fresh, live fir and pine is so enticing, I hope I will be forgiven for my lack of knowledge of other celebrations.

I love Christmas.

Sugar Rush!

Those of you who placed cookie orders with me, I have them. You can either pick them up Chez Amara and Callie and Terry, or if you ask nicely I might be persuaded to deliver them myself. I'm going to be running up to the Mansion on Sunday to drop orders off, but if you just can't wait to get your sugar on, we're going to be selling down in DX today in front of Empire Boxing.

And just because you may have already placed an order, that doesn't mean you can't buy some more. We have plenty left for you to purchase. And if you don't want to have that temptation around, you can buy boxes to donate to local charities, or to send to a service man or woman; I can tell you from personal experience that finding GS cookies overseas is next to impossible. Or you can buy them for keeps. Don't worry, I won't judge.

Also? These Lemonade cookies are pretty amazing. I may have found a new favorite. Mmmmm.
