Roasted Avocado!? Sure, why not!!

Roasted Avocado!? Sure, why not!!

If you have an iPhone or an Android phone and aren’t using Instagram, why the hell not!? Instagram (aka IG) is a photo editing and sharing application. Via IG, you can post photo’s with captions describing your picture and add hashtags to post them on other pages. One of my favorite hashtags is #foodporn.  It’s used … Continue reading

Miette

On my actual birthday I wanted to go shooting. So an afternoon spent with my dad at the gun range, it was.  To end my birthday week however, I wanted to do something a little more girly.  A cookie decorating class with my long-time friend Nicole and sister Laura sounded perfect! A few weeks before … Continue reading

Birthday Wishes and Banana Cream Pie Dreams! :)

Birthday Wishes and Banana Cream Pie Dreams! :)

It’s no surprise that I am highly fascinated and slightly obsessed with all things cupcake.  What may be slightly shocking is that I  don’t really like cake.  I appreciate a beautifully decorated cake and have always wanted to take cake decorating classes, however I will pass up the opportunity to have a slice of cake, more often than … Continue reading

SF Ferry Building Field Trip

SF Ferry Building Field Trip

Remember class field trips? The excitement and anticipation of exploring a new place.  The breaking free of the monotony of sitting behind those tiny little desks in those uncomfortable plastic chairs.  The stuffy and uncomfortable bus rides.  The bag lunches. I’d like to say I have many fond and vivid memories of them but the truth is, my memory, … Continue reading

Chocolate Covered Weakness

Chocolate Covered Weakness

With Lent starting tomorrow, many are asking themselves (and preparing for) what they intend to give up for the next 6 weeks. Many opting to give up food related items, such as candy or sweets in general.  Although I don’t have intentions of giving up my chocolate-y weakness, I felt what better time to share my addiction … Continue reading

What goes around comes around…

What might I be referring to you ask!? Karma of course!  Based in Petaluma California, Karma is a mobile food truck serving up Indian food from the side of the street. I had been seeing posts pop up on my Facebook feed for months, one in particular catching my eye – “Order the Sexy beast fries, topped with … Continue reading

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Isn’t it funny ladies how when we’re young, we hear comments along the lines of being like our moms?  This at a time that our appreciation level for our mothers isn’t quite what it should be, therefore we can’t even fathom the thought.  Be like our moms?! Pfft.. seriously!? Never!! Well. I’m here to say, in writing, that I am very much like … Continue reading
