apples watermarkHi Friends!

It’s me, Jen. It has been almost a whole year. What the what?

I know, you have always been on the back on my mind.

A little voice, “oooh this tastes good. You should share it with the interwebs.”

But alas, time got away from me. I have much to tell. Remember I started derby?

Well I still love it and it pretty much rules most of my free time.

Remember my 3 crazy dogs? Well now there are 4! What?

Remember my love of Fall?

Well I got some derby gals together and we went apple picking and I have an amazing recipe coming your way.

It is a waffle, it is a donut, it has apples, it is FANTASTIC.

SO, I just wanted to get you ready. I will be back more frequently with all my tales from in the kitchen, on the track with my pups and so on and so forth!.

apple cider donutsHi All!

It has been awhile.

I’m still here, just had a crazy summer.

Busy, busy.

Derby, Diet Changes, Dogs, Donuts!

You know, life.

Well I’m on my endless quest to get some sort of scheduling sense into my life so everything I want (and have) to do has spot and I don’t collapse from exhaustion.

We shall see how it goes, high hopes.

First up for you my friends will be these sweet little Apple Cider Donuts to help usher in my favorite season.

Beagle and I thought they were fantastic and we are sure you will too!

Stay tuned and I’m glad to be back and HAPPY FRIDAY!

Happy Friday Folks!

I don’t know about your neck of the woods but we have been drenched here.

It’s hard to be motivated when everything is so soggy and blah.

But I’m trying to take some lesson from my little pup friend.

Just get out there and play in the puddles.

So that is what I’m going to do.

Thanks muddy pup!

Oh and by get out there I mean stay dry and relatively clean working in the kitchen.

I got filthy and splashed enough playing with this guy.

Have a fantastic day all!

blackberry macaroon tart muffin 5I come bearing muffins in an attempt to apologize for my absence.  Sorry!

If any muffin is going to make up for my utter scheduling woes and my pure laziness when I did have free time these are the ones to do it.blackberry macaroon tart muffin 3

We could solve some real world problems with these muffins.  You will definitely have some nation building happening, you know if muffins are served during those sorts of things.  They should be if they are not if you ask me but no one has asked so we will just have to enjoy them. What?

blackberries

They are a muffin, they are a macaroon, they are a tart, they are amazing!

But back to my disappearance.  You already know I joined roller derby and am flat-out obsessed.  It kicks my tush and I love it.  I was driving 2 hours away once a week to get to practice and it really was having an exhausting effect for the rest of my week.  With summer season coming the drive was going to only get worse.  I was torn, I just found this amazing sport that I’m loving but I can’t be a zombie for the rest of my week. Folks, I was bummin’.

Well luck would have it, right around the time I started roller derby some ladies right here on the Cape were trying to start a league, I met them for some open skates and well the practical thing occurred.  I talk to my other league about the distance and I ended up joining the Cape league. YAY Salty Dolls!  What?

We are all just starting out but we are determined to make this happen plus I love that I can be in a league and fundraise and all that jazz in the community I live in.  Sure we don’t have a roller rink and are currently using a melted ice rink so we have some hurdles to get through but we are having so much fun along the way.  If you happen to know anyone who wants to build and own a roller rink on Cape Cod there are some ladies who would be ever grateful, I’m looking at you Bill Murray.

Happy Friday Folks!

I don’t know about you all but I’m pooped.

There is so much sun light, so much to do, so much to make and eat, so much pollen, Blurg!

Allergies aside all is looking bright and sunny in my little corner of the world.

Here are some odds & ends of the past week or so.

newtonLike always the beagle is starving, waiting in the shadows for his next meal.  Poor beagle, never enough food.
