A Dessert Worth Destroying

  I love Trifles. They are one of my favorite desserts to make because they are always delicious and they always make a beautiful presentation.

Baby Fat

  Hmmmm… I wonder why after 9 months, I am still carrying around an extra 15 pounds of leftover baby weight. It couldn’t possibly have anything do do with all the baking I do, could it? Surely not. I am convinced it is because of all the wonderful food blogs out there and the incredible […]
