The Betty Crocker Project : California Black Bean Burgers, Oven-Fried Potato Wedges, and Chocolate Milkshake

Damn, do I love a good burger. It never fails: Annie and I will go to a new nice restaurant somewhere, with all this new, fancy food on the menu that we’ve never tried, and invariably I’ll be drawn to the veggie burger. They could […]

The Betty Crocker Project : The Pink Lemonade Cupcake

Can’t have a trampoline. Can’t do a cartwheel without dislocating my thumb. Can’t write my name in the snow like a boy. Can’t stay up till 3am watching Buffy The Vampire Slayer on a school night. Can’t stop burning cookies. . . and quoting Parks […]

The Betty Crocker Project : Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

The Betty Crocker Project : Impossibly Easy Cheeseburger Pie

The Betty Crocker Project : Blueberry Banana Muffins

The Betty Crocker Project : Blueberry Banana Muffins

Back in the day – when Dan and I were still very new and navigating our way from “Just Friends” to True Love – we had a very awkward conversation about Banana Bread. Because in all the years we had talked about our most private […]
