Julia Child yo!


Let’s all make this. It would have been her 100th birthday next week. I loved watching her on PBS when I was a wee lass. I did get a little bummed when I read the book to find Ms. Child so dismissive of Julie’s project. I would be so devastated. But maybe that’s just Julia, what do I know.

I am thankful


For cake mix. Cake mix is so humble. Just a few additions and you feel like a Betty Crocker Martha Stewart Donna Reed goddess…and yes of course you can lick the spoon. And never mind the business with raw eggs being dangerous. The additives in the cake mix negate any cooties raw eggs might give you. Science people!

The Friday evening cocktail helps too.



I love all types of beautiful paper, but by far wrapping is one of my favorites. I know I get a little bit tickled by how a gift is wrapped, as much as the gift itself. It's like the icing on the cupcake!

I loooove presents!


Look at these amaaazing cookbooks my girlfriend Robyn got me. Super stoked! I love cookbooks, it just isn’t the same looking it up on the iPad. I love the stained pages and handwritten notes. Heritage people!

Happy birthday to me


Syd came in at 6:44 this morning and surprised me with a lovely breakfast in bed. She prepared everything by herself. I’m the luckiest girl ever. Even if I woke up with my period.
