What I've been waiting for....

They say a little retail therapy goes a long way. I totally agree. In fact, even more retail therapy does wonders. And after working so hard on 101 Gourmet Ice Creams- I’d had enough… and had to get to the store, or should I say online…. I came across this blog and fell in love […]

Miss A's Science Project 2012- The Effect of Sugar on Kids' Concentration

These are my proud mama moments. Miss A did a fantastic job on her science project. She choose to do something around baking and food. Guess what?

Cookie Dough Egg Roll. I am CRAZY.

Guest Recipe: Tuxedo Raspberry Torte Brownie

I can imagine it would taste pretty good with strawberry or blueberry substituted for the raspberry. Tuxedo Brownie Torte Brownie 1 […]

The pantry makeover- Simply Living Smart.

I’ve complained for a while now about my teeny tiny pantry. How can I make it more functional and pretty? Well, I finally gave in, and pulled everything out.  The next morning, I opened my email to see one from Anitra and Simply Living Smart. Guess what? It was all about pantry organization. Bingo! I […]
