I am sooo behind on my posts! Sorry guys! Time to play catch-up!
I saw this frozen yogurt shop not too far from my place and thought I’d give it a try. Since I had brought along a hungry cohort, I figure we’d tackle this thing.
Sweetened shaved ice, topped with fresh strawberries, kiwi, granola, and a swirl of raspberry-pomegranate frozen yogurt.

This year, we wanted to keep Easter dinner really simple since it was just going to be the four of us!
Toasted coconut flan
No, we didn’t make the turducken. My sister bought it at the grocery store! I’ll start off with posting a pic of this bizarre poultry conglomeration:
Sorry I never got a picture of it before we delved into it…
Many, many more culinary adventures to come…

Last month, in honor of me and the BFF’s birthdays, we took our annual trip to Las Vegas!!
Now, I can’t really show you any pictures save for those in which I took at the glorious Bellagio Buffet. This was our first time eating at a Las Vegas buffet and we were not disappointed.
I only remembered to take pictures of the desserts. Besides, I’m sure you don’t want to see my dinner plate stacked with prime rib, on top of Alaskan snow crab legs, on top of rack of lamb, on top of manicotti….I could go on…haha.
The desserts were super delicious and each on its own little plate:
Creme brulee, flan, chocolate and hazelnut mousse cake, chocolate raspberry mousse cake, bread pudding (way in the back of the picture, but insanely delicious!)

Thanks everyone!! I had an amazing birthday!

Yet another March birthday of a dear friend of mine brought me to Tokyo Cafe in Fort Worth.
This must be the sweetest ending to an awesome birthday dinner! (It also helped that we had green tea ice cream, plum ice cream, red bean ice cream, AND fried bananas!)
I MUST make this! Too cute!
Birthdays really bring out the baker in everyone! A very good friend made some super yummy cupcakes, as seen in Martha Stewart Living: Strawberry Cupcakes with Strawberry Buttercream
Thanks so much for letting us be the guinea pigs in your baking experiment! They were awesome! I love your blog and I can’t wait to see what you cook next!
