Blizzard Treat

Ok fine, it wasn’t a blizzard yesterday.  It was just snow.  But it inspired me to whip up a “blizzard” – a Soft Serve Banana Blizzard.  A ripe banana actually made it to the freezer without being eaten!  Bananas never last in my house.  We are all bananas over bananas!! For the “mix-in” in the…

Easy Weekend

How do you start your weekends?  It started last night for me with a good ol’ Friday night spin.  It really sets the tone for the weekend.  Next up, making coffee from scratch (the best way!) – from grounding beans to frothing milk.  I wish I have time to make coffee everyday!  Ah, the aroma…

Fur here, Wagging tails there

I checked out the 18th Annual All About Pets Show today!  I was really excited at the entrance even after paying $12 for admission.  (Disclaimer: most of my photos are blurry; I didn’t want to blind the animals with flash) The main features of the show were the dog demonstrations (in my opinion!).  First up,…
