New Site is Up!

Written on April 1, 2011 at 10:47 AM, by

**Update: Wonky sidebars have been fixed in Safari and Chrome. My husband is hiding his head in shame. And he says SD readers are way too savvy. Who knew that 30% of you were on Chrome? This is a short and sweet post to announce that the new design has been launched! If you’re viewingContinue Reading

Coming Soon!

Reason #193 why my husband rocks: He’s a web designer. Which, for me, translates into having someone around who not only knows how to give my little blog a new logo and a badly-needed redesign, but is just as excited as I am about the whole project. Oh, and he does it for free. OrContinue Reading

Sugar Duchess Turns Two

Written on January 7, 2011 at 4:44 PM, by

This month is my two-year blogiversary. And I have you to thank. Food blogging takes ten times as much time as I thought it would two years ago. And I’ve nearly quit several times, when morning sickness/new baby/moving/other goals were making it difficult. But the thing that kept me here was knowing that you wereContinue Reading

Time for Tweets

Written on November 8, 2010 at 5:20 PM, by

The world must be ending. I’ve joined up with the Twitter madness and find myself fumbling around like a Neanderthal trying to figure out an iphone. What have I done? If you’re a Twitter sort of person, you can follow me at sugar_duchess and chuckle good-naturedly as I bumble around. You ready? You with me?

Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Reprise

Written on October 8, 2010 at 2:34 PM, by

It’s no secret. I’m pretty crazy about cinnamon rolls. I discovered this recipe last year when it was posted on the King Arthur Flour blog. I made it, devoured it, fell head over heels. And I didn’t tell you a word about it until November. Shame on me. This year I’m giving you no excuses.Continue Reading

Coconut Keepers

We need to talk. It’s about my old camera, and what happens when it dies and I try to stall for time while waiting for my new camera to come in. I thought I could do it, friends. I thought I could just slap up a few old photos and distract you with a shinyContinue Reading

Friends! Guess what? We have a winner! You were kind of expecting that, though, weren’t you? Reading your birthday wishes made me smile and laugh and wish that I could send you all to the spas and exotic destinations you dream about. Wish I could. But there is one of you who will be goingContinue Reading

{A Giveaway}

You’ve been awesome. You’ve been witty and fun and gracious, and just as in love with flour and sugar and eggs as I am. Starting up this blog, I was excited about the prospect of having my own corner of cyberspace to throw powdered sugar around in. But what I enjoy even more is theContinue Reading

Happy Summer!

Written on June 15, 2010 at 3:08 PM, by

Season changes give me ants in my pants. Proverbially. In the spirit of turning seasons, my little blog has been undergoing some changes. The astute reader will have noticed. And of course all of my readers are astute. And attractive. And clever. It’s really nothing major, mostly just a couple of useful sidebar widgets, andContinue Reading
