three days late

28 Apr

I am three days late in my DB post. But I also have three treats to share…

This months challenge was Cheesecake! I adore cheesecake!

My fearless taste tester and I made a list of all the cheesecakes I would make this month ( a very long,creative list that included cheesecake wontons) but in the end I settled on three…

The best part was that I invested a little in some photography equipment and had my first “professional” shoot…they all look lovely and tasty if I do say so myself.

The April 2009 challenge is hosted by Jenny from Jenny Bakes. She has chosen Abbey’s Infamous Cheesecake as the challenge.

Insert Knit Here

15 Apr

For my one faithful reader…a non-food post.

I am working on a lot of knitting projects but many are surprises for the reader mentioned above so I can’t post them yet.

I am working on one piece for someone whom I don’t think comes to the site too often….

and so I can share with you my first lace scarf.

I came up with the pattern all on my own and am very pleased with it…even if lace yarn is a pain in the arse to work with.

The pattern is all knit (I hate to purl and avoid it whenever feasible) with yarn overs strategically placed throughout.

Lovely…I can’t wait to see what it looks like finished!
