Oh, hey.

A few things…

1) I’ve been neglected this poor blog since I began graduate school at the beginning of the year. And I’m not going to lie, I’ve been kind of baked-out/foodie’d-out from the holidays, but I shall try to get back on board with posting when I can because I have a) a bit of a backlog of posts at the moment, and b) plenty of other recipes I’d like to share.

2) While I’ve been “away,” someone pinned one of my recipes, the buttery nipple cupcake one, which gave my blog a lot of hits. I don’t use Pinterest because I’m overwhelmed by the idea of it (I can barely keep up with the RSS feeds of other food blogs on Google Reader and on WordPress as it is), but I know so many people who do use it, so I think it’s great that someone thought my take on a recipe was worth pinning. I appreciate you stopping by, new readers. The pressure is on for this to be a not-so-terrible blog.

3) Lastly, I don’t usually talk about politics in public, but Go Ravens!

The name made me curious, and recently I looked for some recipes for this dessert.
