Chocolate-Chip Cookie Topped Brownies & A Giveaway!

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

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. […]

A Pretty Pink Tea Party

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 […]
