If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know that at the end of last week, our fridge stopped working (and I was tweeting with excessive exclamation points). It just wasn't getting cold; the freezer worked perfectly, the fridge not so much. So while Bo researched ways to fix it, I researched ways to use up ingredients before they went bad. Enter... Blueberry-Peach Crisp! I had fresh blueberries and peaches sitting in my fridge drawer, just waiting to get used in something yummy. I grabbed a stick of butter from the freezer and set to it.

You've all met Rory, haven't you? With all this crazy heat we've got this summer, I decided that she deserved a frozen treat too. And ohhhhh, how she loves them. They're quick to make and cost about 1/4 the price of similar frozen dog treats in the grocery store. Perfection on all fronts.

My company sent me to Brisbane, Australia to lead some software training, and I'm almost recovered from the 14-hour time difference and two stints of 24-hour travel to get there and back. Whew! But it was a fantastic experience, especially because I spent my one day off taking a river boat tour out to the Lone Pine Koala Preserve to see some furry natives. It was such a fun - and beautiful day - that it made my whole trip worth it.

Hellooooooooo!! I just wanted to drop in speedy-quick to let you know that I'm a million miles from my kitchen this week, on a business trip. Well, not a million. But a lot. A whole lot.
I'm off to a client site... on another continent. Crazy, I know. And it was a bit of a last-minute, "go book your flight for next week, Sara" kind of trip. So basically, I wanted to let you know that I'm - unfortunately - not whipping up any new recipes this week. And I wanted to let you know that I'm going to bring back treats for a giveaway! Treats from wherever it is that I'm at... :)
Hint? It's "winter" here.
(And that feels heavenly after all of the heat going on across the U.S. right now!!)
