Chipotle Curry Black Bean Burgers

23 June, 2009


I blame my Auntie Donna. Lovingly, of course.¬†She came to visit this past Friday for Patrick’s graduation.


When my mother threw some tasty looking steaks onto the grill, she quietly slipped out of the house and picked up some spicy black bean burgers from the grocery store.

Babka photos! As promised.

26 October, 2008

I made another babka yesterday and took lots of photos to make up for my initial lack of them. I even borrowed my roommate’s camera to get better photos than usual.

Due to a temporary lack of a real camera, most of the photos on here – save the apple cake ones – have been taken with my cell phone.

I’m supposed to be getting one of these for my birthday on Nov. 3 (hint, hint), which is what I took the apple cake photo with. Expect lots of food porn in November.

By the way, the actual recipe I followed is in the previous post.

Now, without further adieu, a babka tale through photos! Read the rest of this entry »
