Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownies

I don’t host too many giveaways. It’s not that I don’t love you. I sincerely haven’t had the time to work on them! Plus, a lot of the products and promotions that fill up my email box are not all items I believe in. I am very particular with who I endorse or support. For […]

Cardamom Kumquat Bars

Have you ever tried kumquats? I’m amazed that many of my friends know about kumquats, but have never tried them. I suppose a lot of the problem is the confusion on how to eat a kumquat. Because, the kumquat is opposite of the typical citrus fruit. It has a sweet skin and a sour center. […]

Whether it’s having a thumb-sucking preschooler in the house or just bad luck, my family of five has been battling cold after cold, croup to strep throat, this whole school year. I finally joined my kids in counting down the final days […]

A Pretty Pink Tea Party

My daughter recently turned 4. It was a very emotional day for me, you see, since she is the youngest of my three kids, and the only girl. I remember when I was pregnant and I hadn’t found out yet if she was a boy or a girl. Everyone asked me, “Don’t you want a […]

Fall Flavors: Apple Surprise Bars

I’m a big fan of desserts, can’t you tell? What’s not to love? Cakes, cookies, tarts, muffins and bars – yum! Which one to choose? Which one to make? I usually make cakes for big parties and special occasions. Cookies and bars are great for school and little hands. Tarts and pies are fabulous with […]
