Birthday Dinners + Birthday Cakes (My Son’s Birthday)

Yesterday was my son’s birthday! 17. Who can believe that? I know I can’t. I mean, I’ve been writing this blog since he was what — nine years old?! That alone is crazy to me. But the fact that I have a son who is seventeen, driving his own car and applying to college (well […]

Talking About Biggest Slices of Cake

I’m always interested (and quite often, amused) by the search terms which lead people to my blog. Lately, it seems as though I’m getting all sorts of search combinations on the subject of cake. “Is it okay to eat cake for lunch?” YES. If the cake is what you want, the cake is what you should […]

Let’s Talk Birthday Cake (plus birthday weekend recap)

Happy June 5 to me! It’s still a little bit shocking to me that today is my 39th birthday and that I am at the end of my thirties. I am still sitting here wondering where my twenties went, let alone my thirties! Considering I started out my thirties with a divorce process and a visit to […]

Birthday Recap & Bar Mitzvah Week!

  So, like I want to go on and on about how this is the week of my son’s Bar Mitzvah and OMG I can’t even believe it is here but I know you want to hear about my son’s birthday dinner and dessert from the other night so that’s what we will discuss first. […]

snacks, brunch, the beach & happiest moment in my life!

Premiere Diner baked oatmeal and yogurt parfait

    I needed to restock the kitchen a bit over the weekend before my son arrived home from camp. Since he always complains about Trader Joe’s cereals (and really, Trader Joe’s anything), I did my best to get some non-Trader Joe’s snacks and cereals that would hopefully meet my son’s requirements. I thought he would love […]

  I love birthdays! Thank you all so much for your birthday comments, emails and messages. So super sweet 🙂 I know we are all waiting to hear what I finally decided for my birthday cake. Let’s talk about the rest of the weekend a bit first and then I promise, cake details! The Workouts: I recapped Saturday morning’s […]

Thinking Out Loud – May 28, 2015

Warm Cold Salad from Mother Kelly's

Did you know that yesterday was National Sunscreen Day? It’s a great time to take a look at your sunscreen products to ensure you are using the best possible for your skin. I put together a really informative sunscreen post last year that is worth sharing again because the information still holds and the products […]

What We Ate – Birthday Edition

It isn’t often that you find people who actually care to hear you ramble on about a fudge cake or a delicious restaurant. In fact, my friends and family often look at me funny when I take cake selecting and restaurant menus so seriously. I’m so glad you share in my excitement just so I can […]

You Never Sleep Again

Shh. Don’t make any noise because we can’t have the birthday boy wake up before I have made his birthday cake pancakes. Do I even want to discuss that my baby is eleven? Two more years and we have a Bar Mitzvah on our hands? How did that happen? I will forever say that I didn’t sign up to […]

WIAW- October Happenings

  I thought about skipping out on the What I Ate Wednesday fun this week because it is suddenly October 1st and we need to discuss some happenings. But…. WIAW is part of my routine and without my routine I feel all sorts of off-balance and I don’t want to be off-balance so I figured […]

My New Favorite Fruit Infusion Water

I cannot begin to tell you how much I thoroughly enjoy reading all of your comments on yesterday’s post discussing all things cake. Some people have zero interest in the delicacies that interest others. I am not one of those people. I love reading which cakes, frostings and varieties you prefer and learning more about your favorite […]

Birthday Dinner Preparations And Chocolate Fudge Frosting

  Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday. I thought about sending him an Edible Arrangement knowing he would offer to share it with me but I decided not to go with a completely selfish birthday gift. I don’t even think he likes chocolate dipped fruit, or really any fruit besides an apple. Instead, I decided to prepare and host a […]
