Truth is, I was reading my friend Heidi's most recent blog post, where Heidi was reading Katie's post about "Truth is" -- they revealed what is happening in their lives right now. Both of them inspired me so much. They graciously communicated intimate moments of their lives. Both gave such heartfelt details, that I felt inclined do one of my own. Lately, my posts have become increasingly impersonal and boring, so I thought it was due time to connect with you on a deeper level. So here we … [Read More...]
Matcha, Matcha, Matcha everyone is talking about Matcha. No, this is not an espisode from the Brady Bunch. Nor are we talking about an overly masculine man. I am talking about a concentrated green tea that has many health benefits. See def:

Not sure if it's just me or what, but I am getting nervous about the impending holiday season. I love to bake-- I deliver baked goods to neighbors, teachers, friends, and relatives every year, but, hey, a lot (maybe the majority!) stays here in our house. If I don't plan ahead and have a strategy, I will just bake my old standards, which have a whole lot of junk in them.
