Beautiful, glorious, simple-ass bread.

Bread sounds hard. It seems complicated. Like something only our war-time grandmothers could do after milking the cows and before riveting an airplane together. But I assure you: fresh-baked bread is still within our realm. And it is the Aiming Low secret weapon. People go apeshit over fresh-baked bread and the only thing, THE ONLY [...]

Basking in my daughter’s birthday this week, I’m reminded of all of the cakes over the years and none so terrifying to make (or buy) as the Barbie cake she had envisioned for her PJ Bring-Your-Barbie-to-Play Party. Not being a fan of spending tons of cash on a cake–which is essentially the party budget–I decided [...]

Being under the weather is no fun. Stuffy nose. Chest congestion. Headaches. Sometimes I wish I could call in sick. But when you’re a SAHM, you don’t have that option. There’s always laundry to be done. Dishes to be washed. Dinner to be made. And children to be taken care of. Sometimes I wish I had the help of Mary Poppins. She’s [...]

You know those women who bake to relax? The ones who can turn out a perfect pie crust and flawlessly decorated cake? Yeah. I’m not one of them. I do, however, try to befriend them. Which makes it all the more intimidating when they come to my house for drinks and dessert. I feel like [...]

Different Yet the Same

My younger sister Arissa and I are four years apart. It is no surprise that we are different in many ways. But we are similar in many ways too. We like country music, things in pretty packaging, and glitter eye shadow. We think the word “balls” is hilarious. Immature? Yes. But we laugh almost every time [...]
