Bacon Cinnamon Buns

Bacon Cinnamon Bun - Poet in the Pantry

Today was a wrap-yourself-in-a-blanket day. Not because it was a lazy Sunday. No, if only it were that easy. But rather, taking advantage of the time change, I spent the whole morning making bread–because that’s what I do when the mercury takes a dive: bake bread–only to spend 2 hours this afternoon on a soccer …

Strawberry Lemonade

Strawberry Lemonade #SummerSoiree - poet in the pantry

I’ve had this idea mulling around in my head for a while now. Of talking about making lemonade out of your lemons. Because I had a lemon, recently. A lemon car, that is. My first new car–a 2014 Nissan Versa Note. A car that I was thrilled to be able to purchase, even if it …

Bacon Jam: Awesome Sauce, in the Flesh. The Piggy Flesh

Maple Bacon Whoopie Pies

Maple Bacon Whoopie Pies

There are few things in life that aren’t accentuated by the addition of bacon. Hair would be one. Shoes would be another. But just about any food‘s enjoyment value will be exponentially increased by  including even just a smidgeon of pig–it’s a proven fact.

What would a leisurely breakfast be without some strips of …

Maple Blondies Have More Fun

Maple Blondies

I bet you never knew that a simple cookie could, in fact, be a savior. Calgon in a cookie, if you will. And probably a much better option than opening a bottle of vodka, right?

The truth is that my husband has been traveling for work and while I’d like to say that I can …

Orange Pumpkin Muffins #MuffinMonday

Orange Pumpkin Muffins

Pumpkin is a tough sell in our house. The kids love it but my husband is not a fan. Can’t stand the smell of it, doesn’t want to look at it, and he better not hear it’s in anything I’ve tried to feed him. He will not budge.

This makes it difficult to experiment …

Eggnog Caramels

eggnog caramels

I hated missing Week 9 of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies & Sweets. Truly loathed having to do it. But with Thanksgiving falling on the same day, there was far too much going on in the kitchen and far too little daylight to go around to document it. I chose to let it go …
