Anyone still out there…

My blog’s been a little neglected lately, but I have not abandoned it! I’m in the middle of a move from a tiny condo to a wonderful house that was built in 1943 during the Manhattan project. I’m so excited to have a bigger kitchen, although the cooking range and I are still getting to know each other. It is best described as “charmingly retro.”

Also, a confession: I have a serious whiteware problem. I cannot believe the amount of white dishes and bakeware that I had crammed into a 600 square foot condo. Astonishing.


I’ll be back soon with more food and sewing!

A nerdy interlude… gluten free Star Trek cookies

Gluten Free Original Star Trek Cookies

I’m still perfecting my roll-out cookie dough recipe, but I wanted to share my latest test. I made these cookies using the Star Trek cookie cutters from, and I decorated them with royal icing. They are the first attempt, and they were a little rushed, so I am looking forward to even more perfect nerdiness with the next batch.
