Baking: Blueberry Pound Cake


Choosing a book to cook every single recipe out of has been difficult, but I love Alton Brown so I decided on his newest cookbook – EveryDayCook. It just has so many different items in it – baking, cooking, and some alcoholic drinks as well.  I’m hoping this will force me to cook more often and be able to document it as well here.  Continue reading “Baking: Blueberry Pound Cake”

30 by 30: Walt Disney World


My friends and I planned this trip for after one of our busiest times at work. We knew we needed to get away for a few days from the hustle and bustle of San Francisco and to the hustle and bustle of an amusement park. We wanted to do two of the parks at least and I ended up going to three of the parks at Walt Disney World and then Universal as well.  Continue reading “30 by 30: Walt Disney World”

Baking: Cinnamon Crumble Banana Bread

I am well known as the baker and the food advice giver (and maybe travel advice as it relates to food and musicals) at work. I was talking to one of my associates at work and they had a banana with some brown spots on it. Then another one had another banana so I ended up with 2 bananas, spots all over, ready for bread.  Continue reading “Baking: Cinnamon Crumble Banana Bread”

Baking: Fudgy Double Chocolate Cookies

Since I started dating someone new, it’s just been an interesting experience trying to get to know him and his friends. I can’t say we’re similar people because we aren’t but it’s just interesting to meet other people out there. He invited me to a werewolves game night one of his friends was having. I’ll admit the game is much more strategy than expected and actually probably need to know his friends a bit better to be able to play a full game. I mean for me, I was pretty quiet the whole time to figure out how strategy was being developed by most people.  Continue reading “Baking: Fudgy Double Chocolate Cookies”

#firstof27dresses: Wedding!

One of my close friends from high school decided to get herself married on July 3rd. I have so many fond memories – mostly from high school when we really became a lot closer. There are a ton of memories of baking cakes at my house – maybe that’s where my love from baking started or just other small things. At the rehearsal and the actual wedding, I’ve seen how much she’s changed and grown since we were in high school.  She’s become such a beautiful person and I missed part of that transformation. I’m so glad I’m back in her life now and able to experience the wedding with her.  Continue reading “#firstof27dresses: Wedding!”
