Let the baking begin!

I LOVE to cook. In particular, I love baking. Cookies, pies, cakes, cinnamon rolls, muffins, brownies, etc. And I really enjoy presenting it in a decorative way and sharing it with others. I just need to make sure I hit the bike too to help offset all the sugar, butter, etc.

Today for dinner, I whipped up this FATTENING pasta dish with scallions, mushrooms, tortellini, heavy cream, butter, and shrimp. It was scrumptious.

I've baked several batches of my caramel corn snack mix for friends and family. I've got guests arriving in town tomorrow (Kelly's mom and dad), so I'll have some good taste testers.


OH HOW BEAUTIFUL!!! Kelly, that looks like such fun. Ok, when I'm feeling better and you're baking I would love for you to call me over so I can bake with you. Those are such pretty treats!

Tell me you DIDN'T make the donuts too - you put me to shame, but I'm always so impressed by your talents!

Those are awesome donuts! I am sure they taste as good as they look. You are so creative with everything, I love it.

Food is an essential part of my life. I work-out TO eat what I want. I dread the day I actually have to work out and cut out delicious baked goods.

Yes, I did make these...however they are NOT donuts. They are BROWNIES, using my mini stoneware fluted stone (mini bundt cakes). Then I drizzled melted chocolate on, followed by Halloween sprinkles. I drizzled chocole on the pretzels too. The raggedy quilt in the background was used as a tablecloth and I made that too, by the way.
Heid, what do you say we all move in with Kelly :) YAY! Party, party, party!!! LOL!

I think we should have had these for the VT conference dessert. Even though the pumpkin bars were delicious, I'm a chocolate lover at heart! are so talented, you leave me speechless! I want that recipe!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
