Playing The Name Game

Playing The Name Game
Sure, names are hard, and with folks naming their kids Kyd and Blendrr and “Jennifer with one N”, you can’t really blame the poor bakers for getting it wrong. Unless it’s really funny, of course.   Think “Eva” is easy to spell? Well it is. Almost… [eyes narrowing]… TOO EASY. I guess the &# [...]

Tell you what, bakers, I have a great idea: Forget decorating, just throw anything on there! That’s right, go nuts! Cookies? Sure!   Individually wrapped & stickered cookies?

Flakes Welcome
“Hi, I’d like a cake, please, and could you put a ‘happy birthday’ plaque on it?” “No, no, I mean one of those plastic things on a spike – you know, a ‘happy birthday’ pick?” “Maybe we should start over.” “Could you write, ‘Over the Hill’ or ‘Off [...]

Thumbnail for 6457
Next Sunday, the Super Bowl rolls around again, and while my Steelers won’t be making an appearance, it’s still a great excuse to whip up some favorite foods and enjoy time with friends. I don’t have a hometown team to root for this year, and I’d be happy if either the Broncos or Panthers won, so I can finally enjoy a Super Bowl without [...]

New Orleans: Where and What to Eat

Thumbnail for 6455
Our trip to New Orleans started off a little rough. After 9 hours in the car with me, Mr. Texanerin finally caught my cold. The next day, he felt totally run over, I still felt terrible and even more importantly, I still couldn’t taste anything. I had lost my taste 5 days previously as soon as I arrived in Dallas. So we napped most of o [...]
