Lavender Cupcakes

February 26, 2018 in cupcakes - 3 Comments

Is it spring yet? I thought it was, the way February was shaping up to be in the Pacific Northwest.  Then we had snow and school was cancelled for two days.  With the temperature desperately trying to get above 30 degrees, spring is all I can think about. To me,…

New York Style Cheesecake

My family, like many families, has traditions.  Some I love, some I…well, don’t.  However, my absolute favorite family tradition is a birthday tradition.  On your birthday, you get to choose what you want to have for dinner and for dessert.  I loved this tradition growing up because in a house full…

Chocolate Pudding Surprise

When my grandmother passed away years ago, I was given her recipe box.  To say I was honored was an understatement.  She was the best cook and baker I knew, and instilled in me a love of baking.  I was rummaging through her recipe box and came upon a recipe that my…

Creamy Lemon Bars

The weather in the Pacific Northwest has been unusual, to say the least.  Sunny and in the 70s and 80s off and on for the past two weeks–this is not April weather people! Where’s my rain? And my cloudy, 60 degree weather? I am feeling a bit gypped by Mother…

I can’t believe it’s fall already!  Last Monday, we were having 90-degree weather, and now, it’s in the 70s.  I’m not complaining though; 70s-80s is my kind of weather.  All of my summer decorations are now gone, the garden is winding down, and soups all of a sudden sound really…

Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

We celebrated my brother-in-law’s birthday today.  Just like all of us who’ve hit the 30-year club, each consecutive birthday is that much closer to 40, therefore making birthdays a bit painful.  I won’t tell you how old he is, but I will say he’s closer to 35 than 30.  Actually,…

Chicken Tortilla Roll-Ups

My teaching partner went on maternity leave a month back, and I’ve been covering her classes for a bit.  All that to say that I have been working full-time for three weeks now and am spent.  I knew it wasn’t going to be easy to balance work and home life, but…

Wednesday is the 100th day of school, so Grace is working on counting out 100 things. I think I am going to run out of tape before she gets to 100. 😳 #100daysofschool #school Writing letters to the kids they sponsor through Africa New Life. 💞#riverwestchurch #africanewlife Went out to get bubble tea and the kids were almost more excited to play in the balls than to drink boba! #funwithkids Making Cranberry Orange Bread with my favorite little man! @glorioustreats —I love your recipe!!! Sorting through the fresh cranberries to find the plump ones was a job Matthew was up to. 😜 #baking #bakersofinstagram #cranberries #cranberryorangebread #bakingwithkids Saturday fun—making a lego city and a creating a valentine’s party for her dolls. #kidplay #dollplay #makebelieve Grace got braces today! And somehow managed to pop a brace off an hour after getting home. 🤦‍♀️
