These are a few of my favorite things…

Heirloom Rainbow Carrots

Roasted Heirloom Rainbow Carrots (shown pre-roasting) Home-made Left-over Thanksgiving Day Turkey Pho Chocolate Cake. This was layered with a malted chocolate mouse, but it didn’t set up and was a bit disappointing.  But… you can never go wrong with chocolate!

Couldn’t eat more locally if I tried

Squash Blossoms

Lately, I have just not felt like doing much, even though I have nothing but much to do. I am currently juggling working, 3 kids on summer vacation and a new puppy.

Where’s my Mojo?

S'mores Pie

I have been feeling uninspired lately. I just can’t seem to find something that I want to blog about.
