The price of the beach

We spent yesterday at the beach–sun, sand, and surf!

It was glorious.

Today I paid for it.

Not in sunburn or sand in my shorts, but in work. 280 more words

Lovely Leftovers

Most days I eat dinner leftovers for lunch. Sometimes they’re okay, sometimes they’re lame, occasionally they’re quite good.

But some leftovers are always nice.

During crazy cake season, I make a lot of icing, marzipan, and other special items for decorating cakes. 134 more words

Ginger Slice

I asked my daughter if she had any requests for today’s baking, and she asked for ‘those ginger slices’. I have no idea what she was talking about, because I’ve never made ginger slice. 82 more words

Today’s treats

One day I baked two loaves of lemon cake and they were great! The recipe which I used is from here.

昨年末にビザの審査で大阪・淀屋橋に行った際にふらりと立ち寄った、コホロ大阪淀屋橋という器や生活雑貨を展示している珈琲屋さん。そこへ入った瞬間に心惹かれた、「ウィークエンド」という名の分厚いパウンドケーキ。さくっとした周りのアイシングや爽やかな甘みと美味しさのバランスが完璧でとっても自分好みの味でした。そんなケーキをふと思い出し、レシピを探していると「ウィークエンド」と呼ばれるケーキがレモンケーキであることを知りました。

このレシピを参考に作ってみたところ、妙に量が多いなぁと思いよくよくレシピを読んでみると、なんと大きなパウンドケーキの型2つ分の材料でした…さすがアメリカ!作る基本量も違うぜ!!と痛感。

しばらくの間、おやつはレモンケーキです。
