Oooh, brown sugar! Brilliant! Will have to give that a go -- thanks ever so much for the idea! xx, Molly

Funny how sometimes I dont know what I think until it appears on the page. Awkward, that. Happy November to you, Char! Best, Molly

Rapture and guilt. Oh, Nibs, I love that. Maybe not the guilt part (whats the use?), but balance, yes, fine. And the rapture? Absolutely. xx, Molly

And then, this happened. Monday morning. Inches and inches. Well over a week before Thanksgiving. For reals. I've been thinking about the way we digest surprise. About the differential equations we apply, as we sort surprises into good and bad. About how we weight said surprises differently, awarding the bad a coefficient of 9, say, and the good .7, maybe, on a good day. (By we, here, I of course mean I. And yes, I see life as algebra in disguise.) About how I take issue, am offended, with the unexpected when it's unpleasant. How I get all miffed when... Continue reading

What wise girls! With their skills and maturity, I wouldnt doubt that they could turn these out, all by their lonesome! Best to you, Erin :) xx, Molly

Theres a lot to love about the popcorn ball -- they were in my daughters class as well, and a big hit with everyone, and especially nice as all could eat them (gluten free, egg free, etc.). Also, cute :) Advent! Im so not there yet... xx, Molly

Ha! And I thought I was the only one who dreamt of cookies!! Ill deduce, from your QFC reference, that you are a NW resident, QFC being the grocery store of my childhood -- though there were no Lofthouse in sight, then! Love the idea of coconut oil, here. Ive never baked with it, but have fallen hard for its sweet sultry magic in roasting veg, popping popcorn, and so on. Thanks for the idea! Sweet dreams, Becca :) Molly

Oh, Nibs, Im so heartened by your comment. All lessons I learn are usually too little, too late. And even then, only the hard way. The idea that there may be a time for do-overs is a tremendous relief! Your Rapunzel sounds spectacular :) xx, Molly

Ah, Christina, so glad you enjoyed! Your words are high praise, indeed. Thanks so much for taking the time to share. And yes, we are double batch mode around here, also :) xx, Molly

Taking butter out of the freezer is ALWAYS a good idea :) Thanks for the kind words, Heather! xx, M

I am a Bunny. Richard Scarry. BRILLIANT. Not sure how I missed it, all these years. (He was a favorite of MINE, as a kid. Still have several of his books from way back when.) This copy came from, you guessed it, Miller Park. Tall, skinny, magical.

Oh, Amanda, you've (again) made my day. This was exactly the story of our Halloween. (http://www.remedialeating.com/2014/11/better-this-way.html). And for all the anxiety leading up, it was so much better in the moment, seat of the pants style. Loved it. Your honesty and spirit shines as bright as those charming pumpkins. xx, Molly

I took down the Halloween decorations, this week. They've been up less than two weeks. Which, if you're quick, or have had your morning coffees, you'll quickly compute is well-nigh impossible. Seeing as, today, we're twelve days into November. But it is possible, just barely, if we did all our decorating on Halloween Eve. Which we did. Also, they were the best ever. That is my opinion. Pinterest wouldn't concur. They were clumped in odd clusters, and very 2-D, and unlit and unconventional and deeply handmade. Also, completely awesome. We don't go in for Big Decorating, for any holiday, any... Continue reading

Ah, Luisa, what a sweet surprise, especially on my birthday, no less! (Nov. 8 it is. You are good.) I cannot tell you the weight of the value I place on those rare, fleeting quiet moments. You are not wrong to label them bliss. You are also entitled. I have been thinking of you and your beloved Berlin all day, and all weekend. We spent a wonderful two weeks there in 1996, when the wall's fall was still so fresh. Walking the Kudam, traversing back and forth, it all felt so normal and still so surreal. Congratulations on this most extraordinary of anniversaries. And writ small, may you repeat the morning's quiet sometime again, soon. xx, Molly

Eva, Thanks so much for your sweet, kind words. I do so hope roasted broccoli finds a belated, beloved fan in you, as it did me. No time wasted, if you make up for it in double batches, I say! All my best to you, xx, Molly

Ah, you and me both, Mellybrown, you and me both! I'm pretty sure the two senior Henry folk ought to be inducted into some hall of fame :)

Well, THAT'S why it sounds so familiar! Vintage Orangette; of course. I remember reading the post when it originally went up (!!), but have yet to cook up a pot. Must make haste. Veg galore, beans, broth... my kind of soup. Thanks so much, Robyn, for the reminder! PS: Glad you liked the naan :)

Ooooh, I think pappadums would be excellent! And so fun. I've never made them myself, but have eaten my body weight in them, so there's that. There is, also, the dosa -- do you know it? A thin, fermented, crepe-like bread, that is broad and excellent for filling with all manner of things. Naturally gluten-free (made, I want to say, with rice flour...) There are some wonderful instructions on line for the dosa. And thanks, Emanuelle, for your kind words. I can take no credit for Fall's colors -- all her work, not mine -- but they are exquisite, aren't they? My most favorite. xx, Molly

I KNOW! Rylant is a marvel. She has the magic touch, wherever she chooses to lay down her pen. We know (and love) Poppleton, and Cherry Sue, and the whole gang. Do you know Henry and Mudge? And Mr. Putter and Tabby? Similarly excellent early readers that are timeless and classic and great for all ages. (I love any author, on principle who can make an old man and his companion cat compelling reading for 4 year olds.) I keep finding her backlist is wider and deeper than I knew. Such a fantastic discovery! xx, M

What in heaven's name is Ed Fretwell soup?? I am so intrigued! (And yes, the naan would sidle up to ANY soup nicely.) xx, M
