Recipe: Homemade Foodie Christmas Gifts

Since I am sicker than a dog today, I am going to have to miss my fav Woman Crush Wednesday series.  Which makes me sad as a bird with no wings!  But since I can’t breathe or swallow (two things I kind of need to be able to do for a cooking tutorial) I figured I’d better take a pass this week.  Stella (who is my dog and who IS healthy) is delighted!  Since she hates Wednesdays and all the loud music and bad singing, she is happy as a clam right now! Geez, I just realized I’m using lots of animal similes.  Anyway, I decided to bring you and me some good cheer….in the form of a new recipe and a round up of some homemade foodie gifts Continue reading

Happy Hump Day folks!  Thanks for checking in for the 77th episode of Woman Crush Wednesday.  And what a day it is!  The day before Thanksgiving and while Hubby and I are not in the USA to celebrate, we will have our own festivities here in London.  By Friday everyone will be in the Christmas countdown.  So to help us get in the mood, today’s gorgeous gourmet gal The Healthy Chef Teresa Cutter has a delicious Gingerbread Cookie recipe for us.

Pumpkin Recipe Roundup!

My LOVE of all things pumpkin is well documented. I know I am not alone. I just read a blog post titled 20 Signs Your Pumpkin Addiction is Out of Control!  It actually makes me look tame!  In fact, while I have posted pumpkin recipes on here before, this is the first time I have ever put all ten of my fav pumpkin recipes together on one post. My little Halloween treat for you!  I don’t need to say much else, because, well, I just want to gaze at the photos and drool!  And I hope your taste buds get tantalized too! Continue reading

May the 4th Be With You!

This year is like 4th of July 2.0.  What I mean by that is, it’s the second year we are in London for this special holiday. Since Americans abroad don’t get this holiday off work, celebrating can be unique. And especially this year, as I am taking Snapchat on a very unique adventure. If you’d like to join in my username is blissbakery.  It is a surprise so I won’t say much now. But I will leave you with last year’s post for the day that is in it. There is even a foodie recipe for you, since food is of the utmost importance in your festive fourth of July gathering. Continue reading

Why

Why. If you are a stickler on punctuation you’ll notice I didn’t put a question mark after my why. Why? Because I wasn’t asking a question until just that last why.  I was announcing what I want to talk about today, which is the topic why.  I feel like this word ‘why’ is a dying art form.  When we are kids we ask why all the time, and for some moms (not me) the word drives them up a wall.  But somehow kids have it right.  They want to get into the center of the golden circle of every topic on life.  That golden circle is the why.  Continue reading
