Celebrating 1000 Followers!

All those closest to me know that I have a hard time letting my old things go. I am not a hoarder, but I get too attached to some of the items that I own. I am not talking about necessarily valuable or expensive things.. for example, I still have the woe-be-gone blue & white…

Sweet N’ Chocolaty Nutella Easter Egg-Nests!

That aromatic Banana & Hazelnut loaf bread!

Hey there, foodies! The weekend is almost here and I am as happy as I can be, as I find myself snuggled inside my woe-be-gone yet still extremely warm blankie. My cozy-socks covered feet are poking out at one end and my hands around a large cup of steaming hot tea, peeking just below my…

Adorable Apple & Cinnamon ‘Rose’ Tarts!

Happy Monday foodies! (If there is even such a thing…) This week’s theme for the #FoodieMonday #Bloghop was a challenging one! The name “3 ingredient recipe” is self-explanatory.
