Muffins away from home.

It’s been a while since I have put any thoughts to paper (digitally😉). It’s been a strange sort of month. I haven’t been feeling super happy on most days as I am not at home. It’s not my home, and not being able to do my own stuff in my own space, especially baking, is […]

Just saying hi!

Sometimes, very rarely, I don’t have much to say. Most days I have plenty to say and I am always thinking (over-thinking)? But there are those days when I am just mellow. Nothing seems to bother me. I simply love those days. Those days where the world is spinning just fine on its axis. People […]

Is love a crime?

Two days ago my nephew Noah called the police for me. For me! His aunt. I was shocked. Mind you, he is four years old and the phone he used was literally a handheld one…he was dialing on his hand. He was very polite as he asked the police officer to come to his home […]

Trying to eat healthier

Not much on baking today or recipes, but more of a vent-y type conversation. Sooooo, I am trying to choose healthier options when I eat. But as usual with me, it’s an all or nothing type deal. I woke up one morning, back aching, and decided… ENOUGH. The snacks have GOT to go! I swoosh […]

Can you have a single Doubles?

Before you say yes, ask yourself…”Have I ever had a really good doubles?” Of course, this may be the second question you ask yourself. The first one for many a non Caribbean person, the first question may well be, “what on earth is (or are) a doubles?” Well, remembering this is only my blog and […]

Korvapuusti

Ha ha! For those of us not quite fluent in Finnish, korvapuusti are Finnish pastries. The translation is “slapped ears”. Don’t ask…all I know that I absolutely love these beauties. I have them every time I am in Finland and on occasion I actually bake them! (oooooooohh, aaaaaaahhh) These are similar in taste (to me) […]

Is it all about “likes”?

I started this blog (and my other one) as a way to just put my random thoughts down. Not believing that anyone will read them or comment on them. Much less “like” them. As of today I am up to 31 followers and some “likes”. This got me to thinking…..why do I check the stats […]

What started this love affair?

Today I was sending a message to my friend who I had not heard from in a super long time and I was getting her up to speed on what I had been doing since last we met. Funny thing is, as I mentioned when I started baking it took me back to the exact […]
