I’ve been hibernating from the computer the past few weeks (you might have noticed). I’m here now—I swear. Look for some treats soon. I’m gonna have something sweet share! I’m off to get some rest though…. See you soon!

in the past few days….

 I made us cinnamon sugar pancakes to celebrate a sunny Saturday morning:

I made a mixed berry sauce & topped them with maple syrup and butterrrrrrrr……..

pancakes are fun

so good!  i licked my plate clean:

a pancake was murdered here

-went to Ikea (bought mirror & awesome napkins)

-went to Home Depot for supplies

-had another frozen yogurt experience at Fraiche with my neighbors (yum! they loved it too!)

-went out for Indian food on Saturday night (so good! note to self- don’t eat Indian food that late AGAIN!)

-spent Sunday afternoon with a friend and had a little photo excursion while running errands

Three things that helped me get through the day:

1. Tea with an old neighbor in my old ‘hood

2. Dinner courtesy of my mom. I heated up frozen sauce & meatballs my mom gave me. Her handwriting on the outside of the ziploc was soo cute! She wrote the meatball count: 12

spaghetti & meatballs!

I love her. She makes us chocolate suckers and sends them in the mail!

These are for Valentines Day:

my mom makes us valentine's candy

3. I started my morning with some yummy coffee & watched the squirrels play around the backyard

a glimpse of sun today

just another sunday

the anticipation kills me

so basically—Tea, Coffee & Meatballs helped me get through the day!

note to self: make more breakfasts like this one!


honey/cinnamon kashi with raspberries, a splash of half & half….and a drizzle of wildflower honey:

sunday breakfast

the secret: I added frozen raspberries to help cool down the oatmeal.  They melt right away! mmm

this weekend’s eats

JUICE!  I bought a juicer a few weeks ago- remember?  I’ve juiced every day since!  Honestly!  I love it.  There’s actually been several days where I’ve juiced in the morning & in the evening.  It’s the perfect toy for me to play with in the kitchen, as I am the type of person who likes to experiment!  (sometimes a little too much)

On Saturday morning I made a tangerine, beet, celery, ginger & carrot juice.  Tasty! Refreshing!

juice of the day

SOYRIZO!  I love soyrizo.  I’m pretty sure you will too.   It has wonderful flavors and it’s especially good when you burn it in a skillet. (at least I think so)
