kale soup with chorizo 2We have moved beyond a crispness in the air to a most definite chill.

Not complaining, I enjoy winter and cold weather.  I don’t enjoy shoveling snow or my car sliding on ice but we won’t think of that now.  We will think of knit hats and scarves,  wearing knee-high socks, hot toddy’s and steamy warm bowls of soup.

apple cider donut 3I’m not shy about my love of Fall.

There is just so much orange and crispness and corduroy that makes my little heart want to burst with happiness.

I’m not afraid to tell you that it is in fact the best season.

Leaves changing, pumpkin and apple picking.  Soup!  My gosh the Soup!

And the donuts.

Now I’m not afraid to tell you that donuts are in fact an any season treat but when it comes to fall you’re going to want to jam your face with Apple Cider Donuts!

Yes, that’s right.  Jam them in your face and let the magic of the season behold you.

coconut shrimp 1

I don’t know about your neck of the woods but summer is in full swing here on the Cape.

Like bananas.

It always gets crowded but this year is pure madness. People are everywhere!

I’m having little panic attacks with all these crowds.  Don’t worry about me though, I’m a tough little cookie.  I’m make it through to Fall.

Sweet, sweet Fall.  I miss you!  My corduroy, scarves and boots are waiting!

But since it is summer and it is crowded I’m going to share with you one of my households go to meals so you don’t have to stand in line at a fish fry shack.

Coconut shrimp!  It is one of my husband’s favorite and he requests I make it often.  It is crunchy with a little touch of sweetness and so simple.  Like ridiculously simple.

It goes perfect with these onion rings and since it is summer and blueberries my food of choice this buckle for dessert.

There, now you have a perfect summer meal to have at your home oasis away from the crowds!

(I’m not kidding, it is bananas out there!)

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.

apple tart

Short on time?

Out of patience?

Got a couple of apples?

How about the desire to eat something yummy with your coffee? Tea?

Tired a sacrificing quality because it’s a mad, mad, mad rushed world?

Does this sound infomercialish?

Is infomercialish a word?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, wait.  Should you have answered no?

I’ve confused myself, it’s not difficult to do.
