Just over a year ago I was introduced to the book: “The China Study” by my husband’s cousin’s wife Mischele. It is a compilation of the findings of the most comprehensive study ever conducted on nutrition. The book completely changed my beliefs about food, the […]

The things I always remember about moving are the fun parts; purging all the old collections of forgotten items left hidden after they have fallen behind furniture, replacing favorite possessions you wouldn’t otherwise justify spending the money on, and venturing recklessly into the unknown with […]
A few months back I credited Evan at Butter Cakes for sharing her ingenious idea for making decorative carrots out of Starburst candies. Since then, I have become an avid reader and follower of hers. I was sold on her creativity after the Starburst contribution… but then I saw this:
This incredible assembly is entirely handcrafted by her whimsically artistic fingers! I dare you to tell me your jaw is not on the floor, and that you don’t need a spatula to lift it back up. My little nephew turned 4 this week, and what I wouldn’t give to have to been there to make this cake for him! Click on the picture to get more details on this fabulous cake!
If that isn’t enough, Evan held a contest a few weeks back giving away a 6″ Fat Daddios square pan that is 4″ deep!
#1: I’ve always wanted to make a square cake that I didn’t have to piece together from my casserole dish!
& #2: Did you read that it’s 4″ deep! That’s an easy 3 layers with one swing!
When it arrived, I couldn’t wait to tear into the package. And then… I saw it… It is a beauty!
It’s sheer torture having to wait to use it, but… I’ve decided it’s worth deserves to be used as a christening device to break in my new oven, in our new home, to be forever dubbed the housewarming, welcome home, surprise and celebration treat pan!
Thank you Evan! I’m still grinning that big smile seen in the photo above!
Did you catch that? Announcement! Announcement! We are moving! Gabriel accepted a position at Avalanche/Disney Interactive in Salt Lake City, Utah! Only 1 more week in Portland, and then we embark on the one way ticket road trip to Utah! Hence forth, if I ever go a few days without blogging – you’ll know where I am… enjoying Caramel Apples on Main St. USA!

I’ve still got cheesecake on the brain from the April’s Daring Bakers Challenge, despite trying to purge my seemingly insatiable need to whip cream cheese with a count of four since March. This time, I experimented with pineapple. I’m severely dedicated to pineapple; and there […]
