I apologize for my absence. Here is what I’ve been doing:
Hot Chocolate with dashes of Cinnamon and Chili Powder.

Oh Costco. I don’t know what to do with you. You take such good care of me. But just when I think we were meant to be, you rip my heart apart with your impulse purchases (or are they mine?). Sweet Costco. Last week I read a fascinating article about your pumpkin pies. You know [...]Continue Reading →
I feel like crying as I write this. My oldest is turning 12 this Sunday. 12. Twelve. 1-2. If you know Ellie, you may know why I’m now officially crying. She’s a great girl. And now she’s going to be a great lady. The birthday cake below is what she has requested for her special [...]Continue Reading →
It is that time of the year. Can you believe it? Time for costumes, cinnamon sticks, orange leaves, and oh so much more.

Ahhhhh, winter weather. It is here. And unless you live in a little place I call MagicLand (aka Berkeley, CA), you will know what I am talking about. When I see storms brewing, frost forming on windows, snow flurrying, I want one thing and one thing only: cinnamon rolls. Okay, maybe I want two things [...]Continue Reading →
It’s a shame how long I’ve gone without posting anything. Life has taken over. Last summer, as we drifted about enjoying our free time, I looked at my growing girls and suspected that Fall would be crazy nutty. And although I usually don’t write much about my family online, I must say that this Fall [...]Continue Reading →
