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! About these ads

I give up

Fuzzy Peach

OK, so I have been beating myself up a lot lately about this blog.  I was stressing about not having the time to do it, but then I kept filling my dance card with even more things, which just pushed this even further down the list of things for me to get done. Then, when … Continue reading
