I’ve heard it said that when you don’t know what to blog about, blog anyway.  So, here I am blogging anyway :)

I’m so thrilled with this kitchen adventure.  I found a recipe in an old magazine for lemon curd cheesecake.  Just reading the recipe made me drool and so I just had to make it.  I went on the hunt for lemon curd and didn’t find any at the store.  I did find Ina Garten’s recipe for homemade lemon curd, yummy!  The only hard part about making this is the whisking.  I convinced Vineet to help me whisk and so we took turns, him whisking and me dunk tasting and then switching roles :)

This recipe is a keeper.  Even for eating straight out of the dish while it’s cooling (guilty as charged!) or smeared onto warm scones, mmm. Getting back to my cheesecake, I’ve baked it and left it to set in the fridge.  I can’t tell you how tempted I’ve been to attack this deliciousness with a spoon.  If I give in to temptation, I think the family will notice a big gaping hole in the middle.  So, I must resist!

Oh, oh I have to show you what I made a few days ago.  But you know me, there’s always a back story…

I have this little pouch with needles, tiny scissors, a tape measure and other bits and bobs. As much as I tried to contain the needles within the plastic-disc-holder-thingy, I would always have a few strays drop out. Every time I reached into the bag I would get stabbed by one of those errant needles.  I got to thinking that there must be a better way to contain these without having to use strong language before I used them each time.

What do you know… needlebooks are meant for this very purpose!  I looked for a tutorial and found tons, each needlebook was cuter than the next.

I had a hard time deciding but I picked this one because the instructions were very clear and Amy’s stuff is always so charming and adorable.

Here’s my Inspired by Nanacompany Needlebook.

Now all of my needles have a place and there are no more nasty surprises lurking in my pouch.  I love my little needlebook, everything that’s scaled down in size is always so much cuter :)

    You are so clever. Can’t imagine why you would not have anything to blog about when you are always busy in the kitchen, with fabric and thread, with yarn…there has always got to be something you can blog about.

    Your blog always makes me want to sew! Then I look at the pile of knitting on my table and get caught up in that. When you cant think of anything to blog about you can update us on your kids!
