Thinking Out Loud – Birthday Survey

chocolate fudge cake

  If you are wondering what it feels like to be 36 years old I am now someone you can ask. I don’t feel any different from yesterday.  Or last year. Or heck, even ten years ago. Actually, I bet I feel better now than I did ten years ago. Back then I was busy carrying […]

I Am A Joy To Dine Out With…

  Since I had no intention of being in New York this weekend, I have given little thought to weekend plans. I can always go for cake though, especially free cake. I received free cake gift certificates back in December when The Cheesecake Factory ran a gift card promotion offering a free slice of cake […]

Chocolate Fudge Cookie Dough Layer Cake

    I am a smart girl. One part street-smart, one part book-smart, and well, one part DESSERT SMART. If you are looking to enjoy a good dessert, you can always count on me to point you in the right direction, bake it for you or go with you to the right place to have it. And, as long as […]

Happy Birthday to me! And a Happy National Running Day to you! I am not one to share but I feel truly blessed to share my birthday with National Running Day. How perfect of a pairing. To properly observe my birthday and this running holiday, I intend to head out for my birthday run shortly. […]

The Bright Side of the Blizzard

Good thing I planned ahead and ran on Thursday instead of today. Easily 2 feet of snow. Now, I am really not one to complain, so let’s look on the bright side, shall we? I was able to make it to the grocery store and stock up on the rest of my essentials: I also […]
