Sorry guys!  It’s been a couple of days.  Between the rainy days, a cold and a huge pile of laundry, I haven’t been able to do much except brainstorm on what I can share with you. So I figured why not lunches? I love pretty food that taste great.  My kids love to be surprised […]

I love easy baking recipes.   This one is by far one of my favorites.  In Miami winters are almost non-existent but it’s funny to see when the temperature hits down to the sixties people wearing ski jackets and keeping their kids indoors to prevent them from getting sick.  It’s quiet ridiculous but fun to […]

For those times when eating cookie dough out of the fridge just won’t do.  Here’s something even better, stuffed cookie dough cupcakes.  Something about the word “stuffed” gives these babies that decadent and devilish edge a plain old cupcake lacks.  Oh, yeah!

We recently relocated to Miami from Santa Monica.  We lived a couple of blocks down from a street called Montana, which was lined with shops, bakeries and great little restaurants where in any given particular afternoon you can see Jennifer Garner and her kids enjoying frozen yogurt to your typical beach bum skateboarding down to […]

I had my friend come over for an afternoon coffee break and I had been craving something sweet.  I looked at the coffee cups and had about an hour before she showed up.  I whipped up a box of store-bought lemon cake mix and baked it in these espresso cups.  Put some fresh blueberries in […]

So, I’m trying to figure out what major holiday is coming up next so I can get my hands on these kitchen necessities.  Well, I do need them, you know!  Mother’s Day just passed, so that leaves me with July 4th, fair enough.  I deserve something to celebrate our Independence from the British.  Right?   […]
