Happy New Years! I slept in until 10:30 today. How about you? It felt great! We were in the city to see Phantom of the Opera at the Cadillac Palace Theatre. It was a great show! We took the train to and from the city, and even though it was a short walk from the […]

Last night our good friends, Aaron and Emily, came over for dinner. They live in California and are in town until Monday visiting family for the holidays. It was so fun to see them again and just eat, relax, and hang out. We played a few games of Sequence (a board/card game we got for […]

And so this is Christmas! Unfortunately, I’ve been sick all weekend and didn’t feel like cooking or baking a thing. Good thing my mom and Ben’s mom took the lead and did it all. It probably would’ve been that way even if I was feeling healthy. There is just something about eating someone else’s cooking […]

One of the desserts I made is this […]

One year when Ben and I were visiting my parents in Michigan, my whole family spent a winter afternoon in the Gaslight Village of downtown East Grand Rapids. There were quaint little shops, ice cream parlors, luxury condos, and then we happened upon a small little bakery. Because we were full from ice cream, no […]

Pizzelle

This year I haven’t had much time to bake for my Christmas tins, so I had to limit the kind of cookies and limit the number of recipients. There are two delicate cookies, though, that I make sure I include because I want them to become a tradition. First, is pizzelle which are Italian waffle […]
