Pots de Creme

So, in order for me to avoid eating my body weight in candy, chocolate, etc. I've started making little desserts (cookies, breads, etc.) to not only keep the cravings to a minimum, but to get a little more creative in the kitchen. Also, I feel a tad more fancy eating some French dessert than I do Twizzlers, but then I realize I'm still in sweat pants. Hey, I tried.

I found this fantastic recipe of Pots de Creme from the blog, The Pig and Quill . It was extremely quick, easy, and delicious. Give it a try!

Antler Anatomy

I'm not the hunter in the house, but I can appreciate a good rack when I see one. OK, I took that one too far, but I had to throw it in there. Antlers have become a hit over the past couple of seasons, and you're not just seeing them in cabins and winter homes. Stray Dog Designs even gives their paper mache take on taxidermy in the below picture. I've told my husband that his prized possession deer will always have a place in our house-I just love it! Matchbook Magazine's March issue inspired this post with a look inside Sheridan French's home.
