the internet is a vast and open space

Antonia's kitchen is finished. I couldn't be more delighted with the results. Perhaps I'll pin it.

Other Adages For Sailors cracks me up, people!

I had a bite of this last week and am here to report that it rivals Crack Pie.

You might be surprised to learn that I read C. Jane, but I do. I am a Mommy Blogger, after all.

It's a big/crazy/action-packed site but I'm enjoying Refinery 29.

You know what my house looks like...well, sometimes, I'm itching for this.

One of the best things we ate in Holland was an apple cake at Keukenhof. We're on a quest and made one from this mix the other night. Sort of a home-made/mix combo. Not bad, but not IT.

This is a nice dress, isn't it? I need to work on looking slightly less like a 12 year old.

I'm a closet Belgian Waffle reader too. This is an awfully good, thought-provoking bit about bodies. I cannot lie, I have a completely delusional sense of what I look like and think about food far too much.
I weigh about 5 pounds more than I'd like to and yet I tend to eat responsibly and do a good bit of walking. Am I going to work hard to lose the 5 pounds? Probably not. But I'm always thinking about what I look like and I don't think that's healthy.

I've found HEARBLACK and am liking it very much. Go watch.

Finally, this is too damn funny. And spot on.

I read a Reader's Digest article once that claimed something like 75% of women surveyed were happy with their weight, which I found heartening, but then that 95% said they could stand to lose 5lbs. It would appear that we are all 5lbs this side of happiness.

I just love smitten kitchen. More so now that she has that picture of Bethesda. LOVE that statue.
I used to make that St. Luis cake thing all the time except I used brown sugar and less corn syrup. It has a real carmel-ish flavor that way. Its a major pain in the ass at this altitude, but soooo well worth it.

Dutch apple cake! Delish, my mother-in-law makes one that is very good. I will cajole the recipe out of her for you. I've only been married to hear sone for 12yrs so haven't qualified for the full recipe reveal yet, hopefully just a few more years to go :-)
And I cannot abide books stacked in fireplaces.
I don't have much baby weight to lose but I have a lot of tone to reclaim. Goodness knows whether or not I will be able to do that. I am quite lazy when it comes to that type of exercise. We'll see.
And we've made several smitten kitchen recipes - the blueberry cheescake is delish, and the honey and thyme flatbread was OK but I don't think I'll make it again.

I love Antonia. I linked to it on facebook too because it deserves to go viral.

I'm glad I'm back, reading blogs; the first link, well, that alone, really. Not to mention your own take on the world
