Cinnamon rolls with cinnamon roll oreos 1

I love cinnamon rolls.  I have had to limit how often I make them since they are a definite weakness – and can probably eat an entire pan in about two hours!  One cinnamon roll is allowable, the entire pan leads to an unbelievable sugar high.  So if I’m going to make cinnamon rolls, they […]


I’ve been in Europe for years and years now, but it can still be difficult to remember that London isn’t that far away from so many interesting places.  Not to mention that it can be easy to be stuck in the now, rather than planning all the places we’d like to go. Athens has been […]

Favorite Flavors of Ireland 1

Everyone has their own version of childhood comfort food.  While for me, it’s definitely Kraft Macaroni and Cheese (yes, non Americans, I have seen the look on your face when I explain the idea of cheese powder.)  But I love to tease Beardy Husband that, having grown up in pre-globalised Ireland, his ideal food is […]

Chocolate Toffee Cookies 1

I think, from an unofficial poll of my friends, that I am not the only person who finds January and February to be a long stretch.  Christmas is over and all that’s left is the rain, wind and super short days.  Is spring almost here yet?  And there’s not even a snowstorm to make me […]
