Here's a little preview from Thursday evening's Shaky Hands show at Burgerville. There will be more, much more, later. Actually, I still have 2 projects to get to before this one, so it might be much later. My day job keeps getting in the way of my dream job/hobby. Grr!

Dutch Babies

My mother has a few signature dishes, and this is one of them. For special occasions or basically any time the family is all together she makes Dutch baby pancakes, which we affectionately just call Dutch Babies. Basically eggs, butter, milk, flour and sugar are whisked up together (or in a blender) and baked. For toppings we usually had thawed frozen fruit (my mom is never in short supply of frozen peaches in her freezer) and confectioner's sugar. Clearly tasty. :)

*This photo is from Christmas circa 2008. Also seen on this plate are skillet potatoes and link sausage.

Long time no post

I haven't posted here since May, and for that I apologize. You know how it goes, busy with life and whatnot. I'm hoping to get some posts up soon, however. Stay tuned.

New puppy!

We got a puppy!

I have been wanting one for a long time, and it all just came together yesterday. We found her from an ad on craigslist, the couple who had her seemed very nice, and she appears to be in perfect health. She is a 5 month old mix, probably lab/corgi of some kind. We are going to take her to the vet soon to make sure she's all good on shots and whatnot and get her spayed.


She is very cute and full of energy! She loves to chew on things and give licks. The name they had given her is Gemma, but we are probably going to call her something else, but we haven't decided what yet. Isn't she a doll? :)
