Ro Ro’s Sour Cream Cake

I constantly catch myself thinking of how I can leave my own personal fingerprint on the world. I think everyone hopes to leave behind a legacy. Some people want their voice to echo through history loud and clear, while others leave their mark in quiet yet powerful ways. To me, one of the most poignant […]

Peaches ‘n (Ice) Cream

Peaches ‘n (Ice) Cream

After living in a house in the ‘burbs, there were a few luxuries we had to give up in order to move into the city. Eric misses the obvious luxuries like the dishwasher, a driveway, and a disposal. I, on the other hand, miss the cabinets and counter space most of all. In the move to […]

The Watermelon Story and a Watermelon Slushy

The Watermelon Story and a Watermelon Slushy

If you, too, have older siblings, you will know what I’m talkin’ bout. I am very much the baby of the family. Like any younger sibling, I looked up to my sister and brother and wanted to be just like them. I followed them around like a lost puppy and inserted myself into their lives […]

Bacon Corn Pizza with Chipotle Cream

Bacon Corn Pizza with Chipotle Cream

When I was little, the idea of homemade pizza made me angry. I couldn’t trust a pizza that wasn’t perfectly round, and didn’t come from a delivery box. Homemade pizza, in my mind, was always soggy, the crust a little too thick, the sauce not quite sweet enough. As I’ve stated here, pizza was what […]

Thai Drunken Noodles

Thai Drunken Noodles

My first and last experience as a waitress was at a Thai restaurant in college. I had never actually eaten Thai food at the time, nor had I ever been a waitress before, so you can imagine how great I was at this job.  The owners didn’t particularly like me, and they called me Jen […]

Morning People

Morning People

My parents are morning people. Growing up, my mom (who wakes up anywhere between 3 and 4 a.m. for no apparent reason), would wake me up for school in the morning with a sing-song voice and declare, “Jessicaaaa, time to get uuuuup”. I didn’t have one alarm clock until I went to college, that’s how I […]

Change and Chocolate Chocolate Eclairs

I’m back, and now I officially have some baking street cred under my belt! It’s been a crazy year so far, full of change. Since the start of 2013, I have graduated culinary school, left my teaching job of five years, gotten a job as a baker at my favorite Boston bakery, and moved into […]

I’m Back!

I’m Back!

I’m back! It’s an understatement to say it’s been a busy couple of months….I’m mixed up in a whirlwind of new students and classical French cuisine. I reached my final quarter of culinary school and will be finishing up with a nice big, stressful final practicum on January 7. After that we can return to […]

Happy Birthday to You!

Happy Birthday to You!

Meet the birthday girl, my big sister Nicole. Today we celebrated her birthday with a Mexican fiesta cooked by yours truly. Way back in her pre-teen days she was told she would be getting a little sister, and she was none too happy about it. Despite trying to send me packing after I received a […]

Ice Cream Sunday

Ice Cream Sunday

I fully believe in rewarding yourself for the small achievements in life. I just survived my first week back to school as both a teacher and a student, so in my mind, that equals a reward. If you’re a teacher, you know. It’s organized chaos as these small children are navigating their way through new […]
