Strawberry & Coconut Ice Pops

Today I awoke to crystal blue skies and the weatherman's promise of temperatures in the high 70's - finally summer is on it's way! So not only am I revelling in new shoe heaven (I indulged in TWO new pairs yesterday), and ecstatic to finally indulge in some sun worship, but my delight is triple-heightened (yes, there's more!), … Continue reading Strawberry & Coconut Ice Pops

A Pumpkin Bread Affair

My husband has another love. He has been very open about his love affair and I have known about his "weakness" for a few years now. But who am I to complain?

Gone in a Zucchini (Courgette) Bread

My mom (technically my mother-in-law, but I like to call her mom) is always taking pity on us newly-weds (even though we are fully grown adults) inviting us over for wonderful home-cooked dinners and donating bags of food as we head for home. My husband can never hide his enthusiasm to go "home" for dinner and I have to admit, I … Continue reading Gone in a Zucchini (Courgette) Bread
