Snow Day Procrasti-baking

by Maggie Kelleher

So you might have heard that we're expecting a blizzard and My Grandma's offices are going to be closed this Tuesday (January 27th)! We apologize in advance on behalf of the snow for any late cake deliveries this week. We promise we're trying our best to make sure that doesn't happen!

Well in case you're in the Boston area, we wanted to commiserate (or celebrate, depending on your view of snow-days) and share some ideas on what to do with your possible day off instead of your backlogged work.

What Would Grandma Do?

by Maggie Kelleher

So it's now late January, are you still following through on your New Year's resolutions? If you are, good for you. I am thoroughly impressed with your tenacity! I can not say the same for myself. And I am not alone. 98% of people do not follow through with their resolutions, at least according to this article.

Why do so many of us put ourselves through the ordeal of setting yearly commitments in an effort to completely change our behaviors? Of course I always believe in working to better oneself, but there is a lot of research that proves that expecting big change to happen at once can often be a recipe for failure.

Delightful Delectables- Mapled Apple Topping

by Maggie Kelleher

What do you think of when you hear "Winter in New England?" Something like this?

In my infinite quest for good food, I think more of this...

Maple Syrup, the natural deliciousness of New England. And what better way to celebrate early January than with some Mapled Apples and coffee cake?

Delightful Delectables- Coffee Cake Baked Alaska

by Maggie Kelleher

How was your New Year's Eve? Did your 2014 go out with a bang and a giant party, or did it slide by as you cuddled on the couch? Well I have a coffee cake idea that is sure to make sure any New Year's goes off with a bang, even if it's enjoyed during a cozy couch cuddle. And at a party... it might just impress everyone.

What kind of cake idea could be so impressive? 
How about a My Grandma's Coffee Cake Baked Alaska?
