Bake the Book: 'Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams at Home'

A decade or so ago, my friend Jonathon made me lemon lavender ice cream and that opened my mind to think outside of the typical flavours. My mind has probably made that scoop out to be better than it really was but I will always remember it as perfect.

I can't think of a specific food but I loved the Lord of the Rings books and I wanted to eat like a hobbit. So many meals!

You are and will continue to be missed Dumpling.

The 12 Days of Dumpling in a Halloween Costume: Lobster

Teachertalk, I do too! As soon as I got home from university today I checked for today's costume. Also when my husband gets homes from work I tell him what Dumpling was wearing today but he doesn't seem to care as much as I do.

Cook the Book: 'The Pot and How to Use It: The Mystery and Romance of the Rice Cooker'

Tacos in Costa Rica. There was some magical sauce on there that I will dream about for the rest of my life.

Just the Flax, Ma'am: How To Incorporate Flax Seeds Into Your Diet

I've been making flax banana muffins each week for breakfast for a couple months now. I buy it already ground in the bulk bin section. I go through it pretty fast so I don't bother with buying them whole and grinding them myself since the ground and whole are the same price.

Thanks for the post. I will try and add it to other things too!
