Make a batch of crepes. Mine were chocolate, made with cacao powder, but whatever, as long as they’re sweetish. Freeze said crepes in between layers of parchment paper. Then, when crepes are frozen but you are hot and need a refreshing treat, remove frozen crepe from freezer, smear with a bit of speculoos [...]

(Yes, I know this picture sucks, and all my pepperonis are over to one side, but screw it – this isn’t a food blog, and I don’t care)
Anyway, I just made this for lunch and it was AWESOME. Also, quick – from start to finish, it took less than 10 minutes.
2 oz. milk
(Yeah, I know, I haven’t posted in forever. I don’t care.)
Last year, I tried making Smitten Kitchen’s Thick, Chewy Granola Bars. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly, because I never do, but instead just threw anything that was vaguely granola-y together and called it done. And the granola rocked. So, that [...]
Hello! What’s been going on? I’ve been busy, mainly with photography related stuff and the odd bit of travel here and there. We went to New York and New Jersey!
And South Carolina and Georgia!
Yay travel! But now it’s the summer (almost), and time to just hang out at the homestead for [...]
I’ve discovered two new (to me) food blogs that I’ve really been digging lately. The first is Ezra Pound Cake, which I was immediately drawn to because of the name. I’ve bookmarked about a million of recipes on there, including this Beer Bread we made about a week ago and didn’t photograph because [...]
So, I finally finished picking off all the tiny scraps of paper on the back of the quilt top. That was the hard part. The actual basting, quilting, and binding were a piece of cake.
I had actually sewed all of the squares together a long time ago, probably circa 2004. [...]
Spider! from juicysauce on Vimeo.
A couple of days ago, I decided to knit Travis a fully realistic, to scale model of a spider. In the interest of science, you know. Here’s what I came up with.
It’s somewhat amazing how accurate I managed to make it. You may notice that, unlike most spiders, [...]
It’s been a while since I last posted – it didn’t seem that long, but I think I just got caught up in the annual flurry of Christmas knitting that happens (Must… knit… SOCKS!!!). I’ve been on a mini-hiatus of sorts from the shop, because I’ve been in really productive mode lately (re: knitting [...]
So here’s some insanely bright mohair yarn that I dyed.
I think I shall name this yarn “OMG! MOHAIR! KITTENZ! RAAAAINBOW POOPS!’ Or something like that. The weather has been nice the past week, so I’ve gotten a bunch of dyeing done. I should have a shop update sometime later [...]
I bought some Mexican cocoa tea stuff at Whole Foods a while back. I didn’t realize it had anise in it. I’ve tried it both hot and cold now, and it still tastes foul to me. I think I’m just going to pitch the rest of it. What is wrong with [...]
