Um… Yum!

Now that Christmas is over, it’s all about Valentine’s Day in the grocery store and on Pinterest.  I think I will bake these for my husband and give them to him in a red cardboard box.  They are called Boyfriend Brownies and they are:

1 scoop brownie batter + 1 scoop chocolate chip cookie dough.

My husband is my husband not my boyfriend.  But he’s my boyfriend too.  This reminds me of a joke my husband tells:

“Do you have a girlfriend?”

“No, my wife won’t let me.”



Happy Birthday Sister-in-Law and Friend!

Dearest Luisa!

Dear Luisa,

On your birthday, I thank God for you.  I know you were meant to be my sister-in-law and friend.  Thank you for your letters, your calls, your laugh.  Thanks for your sweetness and your fierceness.  Thanks for being wife of my brother and mother of my nephew.  And aunt of my son.  🙂

Enjoy your day.  I love you!

Cookies happen


My bestie and I are supposed to have coffee tomorrow. I usually try to be good and refrain from sugary drinks.

“I might have a sweet drink tomorrow if I’m good.” I said.

She said, “Please be good.”

I replied, “I will try but you never know. Things happen.”

Cookies happen. 🙂

Ode to a Twinkie



Sweetness and the lightest and meltiest of cake

as if your grains were beaten by a million rocks

smooth and silky on my tongue

your cream filling so soft and whipped

my mouth doesn’t know where cake begins and filling ends

a perfect taste

not too sweet


it has been years since I have eaten you

you were too artificial, too indestructible for my organic and healthy tastes

but upon learning that you would exist no more

I had another and expected not to like you much

I was wrong

golden creaminess
