Chocolate Chip Brownie Tarts

Chocolate Chip Brownie Tarts

It’s Friday night here in Bangkok and there is a pizza on the way and a glass of red wine to be had, so I’ll be quick about this.  And I’m throwing in a gratuitous picture of cookie dough because…why not. A while back I put lemon filling in a sugar cookie shell to make a…

Molly and Clara_9 Months

There were definitely days early in my pregnancy when this moment seemed like a distant dream.  Today (they are exactly 9 months old today) Molly and Clara have been here with us for as long as I was pregnant.  Back when I was six weeks pregnant and petting water buffalo in upcountry Thailand (in hindsight, probably not my best decision), I couldn’t…

Figuring out what to pack for…

Banana Bread Crumb Cake

I think we may have our first teething baby over here, so I’ll make this quick.  We’ll be heading to bed early tonight in case we are in for midnight snuggles from a seven-month-old who is joining the world of biters.  The mere thought of a late-night wake-up has me thinking back to our earliest days of parenthood…
