Triple Citrus Sugar Cookies

It’s winter in Dallas finally.  We had some sleet and frozen rain fall from the sky and schools closed for 2 days.  I went to work on the second of the 2 “snow days,” and there was so little traffic that I wish EVERY day was a fake snow day for the rest of the city.   (more…)

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…)

Cookie Swap

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

It’s that time of year again!  Time for shopping and fighting to get the last parking spot in a half mile radius of the mall.  Time for getting red sparkly nail polish on your fingers AND toes because you can.  And of course, time to bake & send and receive & eat 3 dozen delicious cookies! (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…)

Peach & Pistachio Pavlova

OH HEY.

Here’s a thing that no one tells you about summers in your midtwenties/summers when you’re an actual working adult: they are so busy! I actually spent four weekends away from home at the beginning of this summer. The Accountant hasn’t been home in over five weeks at this point.

What I’m trying to say is that it’s almost August and I don’t really understand how that happened because yesterday it was May I swear.

If you can’t tell, I’m kind of flying by the seat of my pants right now. You know what helps me feel in control and capable?

MERINGUE.

Devil’s Food Cake with Strawberry Buttercream

I’ve realized important two things.

First, I don’t eat enough bagels.  From a health standpoint, I’m sure I eat enough bagels.  There’s probably not a daily recommended allowance of bagels, although there should be, and it should be 5.  When I got home from the hospital Sunday morning, I stood in front of my fridge for far too long, trying to figure out why I didn’t want to eat anything that was inside (aside from the fact that there’s basically just eggs and string cheese in there).  (more…)

Double Chocolate Ice Cream Sammies

Sometimes you wake up and heat up day old pizza in your cast iron skillet and eat it for breakfast.

Sometimes you just go to Whole Foods and buy apple cider vinegar and a single coco La Croix and a pint of Jeni’s ice cream. And that’s it.

Sometimes you go to Trader Joe’s before work on a Wednesday and buy a single greek yogurt, an apple, chocolate & sea salt almonds, and peonies. Because how do you show up at the office without those things?

Sometimes, you just do the things that you want to do. Because you’re an adult and you can.
