New stuff is coming soon, I swear!

I've figured out the easiest and most fantastic way to make smashed baby red potatoes. They're crispy on the outside and edges, fluffy on the inside, and covered in the perfect combination of salt, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese! I had to make them three times in a week. That. Good.

I've also got a lazy day cake (that really isn't THAT lazy, I've got a bit of an issue to work out with whoever named it that back in the '30's). It's a fairly dense white cake toped with a broiled "frosting" made up of coconut, butter, brown sugar and milk. SO delicious! It's a family favorite but the cake used to always give me issues that I've finally worked out. I can now stomp to my hearts content while this puppy bakes!

The really excited bit for me (because, you know, baby arriving in a couple of months), is that I've built a MASSIVE (I'm talking 300 page) binder of recipes, tips and tricks for cooking freezer meals. I'm not interested in any meal that doesn't taste absolutely fantastic, so stick around because in the next couple of weeks I'll be starting to make a bunch of meals to freeze for after the baby comes, and who doesn't love something delicious that you can come home from work and just throw in the oven.

There are lots of pie recipes coming too. I love pies. So much. Love love love love love pies and haven't made any in WAY too long. They'll all be good for the freezer too!

For now though, I've got 4 more days to get a 200 page catalog to the printer. On my own. That's why I've been so MIA. Oh yeah, and Oliver got me sick again. Don't worry, he's just fine, he tends to bounce back quickly. Me...not so fast.
