Ally Gaffan

Ally Gaffan Through trial and error I've found the two loves of my life - Mr. S. and food. If I'm not out exploring the world with him then you'll usually find me whipping up various dishes, desserts and small fires in the Grid.

Back from Hawaii – Aloha! ☺

For the past year, I've been feeling an insatiable sense of wanderlust.  Most recently my inner travel bug was screaming:

 
 
So Mr. S and I took a little adventure (sans kidlets) to the magical island of sand, hula girls and malasadas last week. Since he had never been to the Land...

Has it really been 2.5 months since I've last blogged?  JHC, life these days has been...complicated, to say the least.  I transferred jobs, my mom's cancer came back and she's now in hospice and I've had some other personal issues that I've b...

This weekend I took Kidlet #2 to see Big Hero 6. Have you seen it yet? It's such a cute movie with some great themes running through it- coping with grief, being a "nerd" is cool and how to take the high road instead of exacting revenge - just to name ...

Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving? I'm definitely not.  Growing up as an only child in a family that wasn't super gung-ho over celebrating holidays; I feel a bit overwhelmed during the holiday season since I started dating Mr.S.  He has a big family that's really nice, but the holidays...

Hey there! Yep, I'm still alive. I've just been submerged in life. Living with Mr.S and the kidlets has been keeping me crazy busy. Kidlets? Should I even be calling them that anymore? One's a tween and the other a teen...and with age has come the teen angst, the normal stinky teen boy smells...

Weeknight Dinner: Quickie, Flavorful Mushroom Topping (Perfect for Steak or Roasted Pork)


Ever have those periods in your life where everything speeds by like someone pushed the fast forward button? One minute you’re kickin’ back, a Lady of Leisure, and the next minute, MONTHS have flown by and you’re like, “What the heck? What just happened? How did I get here?...

Is there anything better than holding a piping hot bao on a cold day? It’s like a mini-hand heater and a tasty, toasty treat all wrapped up into one. I recently introduced the kidlets to bao. When I brought a box...
