  I’m posting these mini sugar cookie cups to revive an old recipe, just in time for Labor Day this weekend.  I topped these with fresh mango that were shaped into flower petals. These were refreshing and light as dessert. You can see this post for all the different ways I’ve served these cookie cups. […]

I’m posting these delicious churro cupcakes today to help celebrate Cinco De Mayo tomorrow (or to celebrate all week). I made mini versions of these cupcakes and brought them to work a few years ago and they were gobbled up. I originally made these when we hosted a dinner party for our 1st year wedding […]

It’s February and I am surrounded by love and romance. Amy’s bridal shower was this past weekend and the celebration was beautiful. What made it extra special was the reunion among all my closest high school friends, a few travelled from San Francisco and Hawaii. Reunited and it felt so good.  We’ve all known each […]

So it has been 10 days since Halloween and I still have a large Costco size bag of candy in my pantry.  I don’t know how to get rid of all that candy, probably have the hubby bring it to his co-workers, but I do know what to do with the leftover candy corns. I […]

I love bite size food and really loved it when desserts come in mini size. I just love the thought of being able to take a bite and savoring it, without the guilt of not finishing it when the portions are too big. They say the best bite is the first one. I first discovered […]

They are made without added sugar, the sweetness comes from banana and shredded coconut.  I made these to enjoy with my afternoon tea at work and also to bring during my recent trip to Portland. I’m planning to make another batch to stock up my freezer stash 🙂 The first […]

We put the lights up on our tree the night after we brought our tree home. If I really want to, I can finish the tree decorating in one night, but I’ve really enjoyed taking my time and having Hawke be a part of it. I know he won’t remember any of these, but I […]

Weekends are for waking up late and then making almond flour waffles to start out your day. Weekends are for being at the pool all day. Weekends are for spending time with my niece and being surrounded by her cuteness all day. Weekends are for enjoying ice cream. Weekends are for long and leisurely runs […]

On Saturday mornings when we don’t have anything planned for the day, I come home after my workout with baking on my mind. I take my time making and eating my breakfast and then I read cooking magazines and go over recipes on my laptop that I have bookmarked during the week. I think of […]
