I’m pretty lucky to be married to such an excellent cook… not to mention a resourceful one at that. He’s also very sympathetic to my sweet-tooth… or perhaps just fearful of his wife when her sweet-tooth hasn’t been satisfied. When there aren’t any decedent goodies in the house, he always knows just what to do. [...]
This weekend was so hectic and busy! We had a spontaneous yard sale, which was both a exhausting and a lot of fun. I never had a yard sale as a kid, so it is a bit of a novelty to me. Well, that has nothing to do with Farmer’s Market, but I just didn’t [...]
If you are looking for a recipe on light-weight, fluffy cookies that aren’t too sweet and extremely addictive…. then be ready to be addicted. We seriously ate a whole batch of these in one day.

We’ll eventually be getting some other yummies to add to the bunch as well… but for now the biggest accomplishment was just being together… [...]

It’s sort of a challenge, getting an aesthetically pleasing image of an edible, and I’ve always been attracted to a good challenge – so I can only assume that [...]
( Learn to make Cheesecake in a jar ) I LOVE the idea of desert in a jar! It seems perfect for fun parties and get-togethers. Plus you wouldn’t have to worry about portion control or people taking so long in line, PLUS it’s just freak’n adorable. I’ve also seen salads, pastas and soups done [...]
