Procrastination.....

I'm still trying to make myself sit down and write some real blog posts. I just keep thinking of little blurbs I want to talk about, and being the type of instant gratification person I am, I am going to give in and post this first.

A while back I posted about imeem.com.

I fell out of love with imeem temporarily, because after spending hours scouring their music files and compiling several playlists, many of my selections shrunk down to 30 second sound bites instead of whole songs. This was not acceptable.

A few months ago, I received an email from the fine folks at imeem, saying they had improved the sight and had a much better supply of whole songs to put on playlists.

I gave them another try, and they delivered what they promised.

I like imeem because if you're like me and don't have music loaded on your laptop and you haven't been able to justify the purchase of an iPod, as long as you have an internet connection, you can listen to your song lists at imeem. They have tons of stuff from every genre, including new artists and lots of covers.

Here is my imeem page. Feel free to look over or listen to my playlists. If you decide to make some of your own, or if you already have one, leave a comment and link and I'd love to listen!

You have just about the ratio of 80's to recent music that I suspected you would :) di

Hey- I've never denied that I'm a child of the 80's.
Besides, you need to send me links when you find cool new stuff!

Carrot Cake!!!!!!

I made my very first ever from scratch homemade cake at 7,500 feet above sea level today. I have made many homemade cakes before, but that was back home in Savannah, which is practically 2 feet below sea level.

After many dismal failures (including box mixes) I have finally made a cake from scratch that turned out decent. No- better than decent. I think this is the best cake I've ever made. No joke.

It all started when my fried Emmy posted on her blog about receiving as a gift from her hubby, a copy of "The Joy of Cooking." By the way, you should go read her blog. She is nauseatingly multi-talented. She cooks and knits beautifully, as well as a bunch of other stuff I learn about every freakin' time I read her blog. So go over to her blog right now.

Anyhoo...she read the high altitude instructions and cranked out a beautiful red velvet cake that made me drool. After reading that, I decided it was time to stop being a wuss about baking at high altitude and try a…

Sunday Love...

This is what Sunday morning looked like at our house. I was inspired by some beautiful strawberries I bought at the store yesterday, so I wanted to make a special breakfast.

What says "I Love You" more than a stack of hot, homemade buttermilk pancakes???



Well, I'll tell you what. A stack of hot, homemade buttermilk Strawberries Romanoff Pancakes with Brown Sugar-Sour Cream Sauce. That's what.



A very good friend of mine from back home in Savannah, Jared, sent me for an engagement gift a year subscription to "Southern Living" magazine. He explained that he didn't want me to "forget how to be Southern." Although it is doubtful that I will EVER not be Southern, it was a very sweet gift. And I must admit I was so excited the day it landed in our mailbox that I had to fight every instinct in my Southern body not to plop on the couch right then and there and read it cover to cover and commit it to memory.

In the April 2009 issue of "Southern L…

The Best Pizza Dough for Mimi

This picture does not include a picture of my pizza dough.  But it was taken at my favorite pizza place in the world- Vinnie Van Go-Go's in Savannah, GA.

I have toiled in vain to make a homemade crust that is in any way similar to Vinnie's.

I'm not going to say I've done it, because I haven't.  But what I can say is I think this version is the closest I'll ever get.

For 10 years I have played around with basic pizza dough recipes, trying to find one that yields a thin, crispy crust, with bubbly edges.

I think there are two things that make this possible... very high heat (most home ovens can't get hot enough) and 00 Italian flour (it makes such a soft, pliable dough).  To manage the heat problem, I usually cook my pizzas on the grill, and let it heat to at least 600 degrees.  Hopefully one day my husband will build the wood fired pizza oven of my dreams.  And to manage the flour issue, I order my flour from Amazon.

Here's the basic recipe and process:
