Pocketful of Rainbows

I’m not really into baking cakes. For me, it’s too many steps to take for something I could buy from someone who can do it way better. Also, I’m not a big fan of eating cake. Cookies? All day, everyday. Cakes? Meh. However, for birthdays, I acquiesce to those I love. My seven-year-old requested aContinue reading “Pocketful of Rainbows”

The work builds off Robin Coleman’s Horror Noire:Continue reading “Editing Like Mad”

Old lady that I now am, I still had a great birthday, all thanks to my husband. I expressed interest in seeing theContinue reading “Just Another (Birthday)”

Challenging Myself

In my last post, I wrote about how I’ve been riding a baking high. As I’d hoped, it’s taken me to new baking spaces. Well, new and old. I finally feel more confident in making macrons. So much so that I played around with flavors and made a lemon frosting, with raspberry filling. I hadContinue reading “Challenging Myself”
