6-24 Ephemera

It’s been awhile since I posted ephemera gathered from around the web.  That’s because I am just about over the unceasing onslaught of ‘The One [fill in the blank] you MUST have’ or ‘The 10 Best [fill in the blank] You Must Try’ articles, emails, and posts I get inundated with.  That said, there have a been a few things that have managed to capture my attention and led me into the time suck that is the world wide web, if you’d like to waste some time of your own…

Finally, if you are staying inside because of the crazy high temperatures, I recommend watching the newest season of The Great British Baking Show and/or GLOW!  Hope you have a lovely weekend and can find some time to get lost exploring ephemera of your own!

Mama’s in the kitchen…

The pie’s the thing

My younger son has been a cooking fool this summer.  He recently watched Matty Matheson prepare his Lemon Meringue Cheesecake Pie and decided to make the pie for his dad.  I did the shopping and he did the cooking, making everything from the pie crust to the meringue himself.  As you can see from the image above, it was quite the success  – and tasted even better!  He gets his cooking inspiration from The ChewTasty, The Food Network and Tastemade and our newest favorite – The Great British Baking Show. Have you seen the show?  My mom turned us on to Season 2 of GBBS last summer and we were instantly hooked.  Season 3 just began airing on PBS and once again, my son and I are ready, set, bake!  Do you like to cook or bake? What’s your favorite cooking show or thing to make?  I’d love to know…
