Sweet Raspberry Morning Buns

Well.  Here we are.  A month into 2016 and here’s what I have to show for it:

  1. I learned that you can remove gel nail polish at home on your own.  You don’t HAVE to fall into the trap of “oh I need to go into get this polish removed…so while I’m there I should probs just get them re-done”…but that will probably still happen.
  2. We have a surplus of dips at our apartment because Super Bowl.  Want to come eat chips and dip with us?
  3. I bought a new planner, and to make myself feel more accomplished I write down things I can easily check off.  Not quite to the point of “brush teeth” as a check box, but we’re getting there.
  4. We’re adjusting to grocery shopping for both of us slowly but surely.  It is shocking the amount of broccoli and brussel sprouts we eat, mostly because we eat roasted vegetables all the time all the time for every meal.
  5. ( ^ that’s to balance out the excess chips and dip)

Red Wine Fudge Cake

YOU GUYS I’M HOME.

Like, HOME home.  I know you’ve all been wondering to yourselves, where’s Hannah?  (False.)  What could she possibly be doing that’s more interesting than the blog? (Not much.)

Despite all rumors to the contrary, I was not in fact traveling the world.  (There were no rumors.)  I WAS traveling the country.  Not on like a cool RV-type old-fashioned style road trip.  On planes.  And uber rides.  And random public transport.  And taxis and shuttles and moving sidewalks.   (more…)

Savory Pumpkin Scones

It’s Thanksgiving! On the one hand, thank GOODNESS because it’s my favorite holiday (I think) and no one is allowed to interview me for residency on Thanksgiving. On the other hand, it’s Thanksgiving??? Allow me to digress for just a hot second into the whole clichéd I-can’t-believe-it’s-already-almost-December thing. (more…)

Cheddar Sage Cornbread

Now that we’ve overloaded you with cookie recipes, let’s take a brief break and make some cornbread.

I’m a little embarrassed, because I’ve been meaning to share this recipe with you since, oh I dunno…Thanksgiving.  Remember that holiday?  It was only 3 1/2 weeks ago, although it feels like it was about 13 lifetimes ago.  Once again, I lost weeks of my life to learning about a single organ in the body.  This time, the kidneys.  I suppose I should just get used to this by now, but it still kind of amazes me how it happens.  (more…)

Cinnamon-Pecan Filled King Cake

Well, we finally stopped procrastinating and changed our About page.  Go look!  You can learn some fun facts about Kate!  (My facts are still the same.  Boring.  Gloss over those.)  We are still searching for an acceptable picture of us that was taken post-2009, which we can hopefully create when I go VISIT Kate in AUSTIN in MARCH.

Now.  On to the cake.  I made king cake last year, and I believe I explicitly said “I know I’ll use this recipe again next year.”  False.  So false.  However, I also said last year that I’m a fan of king cake filling.  Not the fruit kind, and not the explicitly cream cheese kind (related to my dislike of cheesecake OMG don’t hate me), but the cinnamon-y, praline-y kind.  I’ve been on a lifelong journey for how to make such a filling.  (more…)
