EggNog_Frangelico_IceCream_0223a

You know that old saying that nice things come in small packages? Well that’s what comes to mind with today’s post. Even though the end of the year has been kind to me with the current BigKitchen Le Creuset giveaway going on (and another surprise giveaway next week) today’s giveaway is very special to me. It may not come in a bright orange box, and Santa can’t sneak it down the chimney, because this one is hand made just for you by my man. If you are a long time follower of Pass the Sushi, or one of the many friends in […]

While traveling to work the other day I had on the Serious XM Country Christmas radio station and I heard something that reminded me what Christmas was all about. I didn’t catch the very beginning, so I am not sure if it was the DJ’s personal story or something previously recorded, but who ever was talking was reminiscing about childhood Christmas’s in a small town.

He went into […]

I’ve always been more grounded in blue jeans, more comfortable in a T-shirt, and more cozy in a hoodie than I’ll ever be in one of the 9000 pairs of high heels I own. Nothing stops me from buying more shoes though.  I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, figuring why not just start now, so with that in mind I went and did […]

Holiday Throwdown and Butterfinger Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

Last night was my first ever holiday party. I didn’t take the time this summer to throw my normal pool party so I figured why not cram everyone into our house with not nearly enough chairs or space and just make things awkward for everyone. Cozy right? The guests were a mix of my customers, friends, family, co-workers, ex-coworkers and a random dude who was rooting for the wrong team based on his baseball cap. It was the widest group of dietary needs I have ever had to keep in mind as well but I think I succeeded in having […]
