Been A Little Busy..

A 3-layer white chocolate macadamia nut cake with huckleberry filling and a white chocolate buttercream frosting. 11 eggs and 20.5 ounces of white chocolate later, I ended up with this. I told the lady that I was making this for that I don't use fondant because hand painted white chocolate leaves taste SOOOOO much better!

Nothing Says Love Like Parsnips!

How cute and handy is this calendar that lists the month as well as what fruits and veggies are in season. Let me answer my own question...REALLY CUTE! Yeah so I am a tad bit excited to not only run across this but then to realize that you can download the first 6 months for free at Cottage Industrialist (the next 6 months are coming soon). So go now, print and be merry and more importantly, never miss the spring cherry harvest again.

You Are What You Eat!

Another great interview by Jon Stewart in which he plays the antagonist by questioning our government's role in our food supply. The best quote (besides pointing out that one should not be eating cereal that turns your milk colors) was by Pollan: "I think we need to recognize that cheap food has a very high cost, in terms of health and the environment. That cost is getting paid by other people, by the public health system. That's part of the problem and the disconnect. I think that's where there's a disconnect, between what you pay for a cheap, fast-food meal, and the ultimate price of eating that way."

His advice? Eat real food, not edible food like substances.

Pretty Pretty Please!

I like bags. Strike that I LOVE bags. I think it has to do with the fact that when all my friends were shopping for clothes, I always went for the accessory department to peruse. I mean really, when you are 17 years old with a size 15 foot and a 37" inseam, there are not a lot of options for you in the teen department.

So you can imagine my delight when I ran across Bayan Hippo handbags on Check out some of my favorites...
