Oh, that furniture, food and cookware is all so adorable!
And your post is making me hungry, and making me feel like I need to start cooking more!

My, what tiny waffles you have. If you're looking for volunteers to help out with the cannoli roll, look no further. It's a bit of a drive but sounds like it'll be worth it.


I cannot even begin to tell you how much I look forward to your posts -- each one more clever than the last. You always brighten my day, which is important because daylight in Seattle is now 8h 29m, whereas yours is 9h 12m -- not a huge difference, but I'm just saying.


For a chance at good food, I say a road trip should be in order. But how many cannoli rolls can you make?

I'm nice and hungry after this post and am off to have lunch...the bbq brisket sounds awesome, but it is lentil soup day for me. That waffle iron is AMAZING..kudos to you for not that treasure.


Truth be told, some of the food pictures I see out there make me a bit nauseous. I'd rather look at your fake food any day. The waffle iron is amazing.

I don't know how you managed not to lose any of that little stuff either. I can barely keep my head on without losing it. Yes, I do like the sound of a "nice brisket." Sounds very culinary and housewife-ish. (And maybe, if you say it a lot, a little Stepford Wife-ish and "round-the-bend-ish!") I don't know why you bothered crediting 93 cents, my dear. T'wouldn't have worried be a bit!

The recipes sound yummy...but your precious doll furniture and food is what I LOVE! Very sweet and cute! Enjoy your weekend! I always look forward to seeing what you show us next!


Love your photos today. My grandmother would fit perfectly, your image of a 1950's apron- wearing housewife cooking up a "perfect brisket."
It is so sad that the supermarket butchers of today have no clue about the meat they work with. Recently I asked not one, but five of them, what cut of meat do I use to make sauerbrauten. I was met with blank stares. We need to turn back the clock, and bring back the real butchers. Have a great weekend.

You certainly set a cute tiny table- I especially like the cake.

I think brisket is a regional cut of meat. I learned about brisket when we moved to Kansas City- its the basis for Kansas City beef barbeque- but you can't find brisket in North Dakota. My mom thinks the North Dakota butchers turn their brisket into corned beef.

Ummm... you didn't call me when dinner was ready. Great post.


oh my goodness, that is the cutest set i've ever seen!


Did you mention something that was braised? Well, lucky me, I could make that meal because mom bought me a Braising Pan for Christmas. Before I had this little beauty I had to make a stew in a 9x13 Corningware dish with aluminum foil on top...so amateurish... I NEED the recipe for the cannoli roll. Don't make me go out and buy another Cookbook. I am out of shelves!!! Hope 10 is going well so far.

I really enjoyed this post...your blog is great, come by and say hello, Dianne


Hi, B -- Got a Barnes & Noble gift card for Christmas and have been debating whether to get this book. Your post decides it for me! Try Dominick's on Lodi Street (corner of Hawley) or Liehs & Stiegerwald for brisket. I lucked out at L&S and just walked in and bought one one time. Other times, not so lucky. I call ahead and order. There's a really easy brisket recipe in "The New Basics'' that we love. No BBQ sauce. You smother it with about 2 pounds of sliced onions.


Mmm, everything sounds delicious! I hear you on it being too dark to take pictures of dinner. But it's also a good excuse to make fancy breakfasts on the weekends, just to get pictures! :)
