Clementine almond pastry cake Clementine almond pastry cake By Out of the Ordinary 12/14/13 16:38 Sometimes when we have trouble making a decision we’ll ask Malcolm for help.

Cinnamon almond cake Cinnamon almond cake By Out of the Ordinary 12/01/13 16:45 It sometimes seems as though Thanksgiving has become a celebration of having too much.

Almond ricotta and jam cake Almond ricotta and jam cake By Out of the Ordinary 09/26/13 22:31 Sometimes I get so tired of my own voice. Partly this is because I talk a lot.

Flourless pecan chocolate cake Flourless pecan chocolate cake By Out of the Ordinary 09/15/13 17:11 The other night we built a fire in the backyard, we toasted marshmallows coated in nutella (Malcolm’s idea) and then we brought out the instruments.

Gianduja cake Gianduja cake By Out of the Ordinary 09/06/13 21:12 There’s a pleasant sort of anxiety about the last week of summer vacation. We made plans to do every single fun thing we’ve talked about doing all summer long! All in one week! At the moment, of course, the boys … Continue reading →
PIstachio chocolate chip cake PIstachio chocolate chip cake By Out of the Ordinary 08/30/13 17:33 Sad news about Seamus Heaney! It’s strange because I’ve been thinking about him lately.

Yeasted chickpea flour cake with crispy eggplant and pecan pesto Yeasted chickpea flour cake with crispy eggplant and pecan pesto By Out of the Ordinary 08/20/13 18:48 One of the things I’m going to miss most about this summer is grocery shopping with Malcolm.

Chocolate oatmeal crisp cake Chocolate oatmeal crisp cake By Out of the Ordinary 08/18/13 17:10 Yesterday I wrote a story that involved a sailor. He was partly inspired by this guy.
