Let Her Eat Cake: Coconut & Lime Fairy Cakes Put the lime in the coconut and shake it all up... My friend just came back from Brazil, and after listening to him bragging ALL I can think about is coconuts and Caipirinhas. Not even Harry Nilsson is going to help me out of this fix. Crash Hot Potatoes Man, do I love Australia. First, my oldest daughter was conceived there on our honeymoon…and while we’re on the subject, have I ever shared with you that we almost named her “Sydney” as a nod to her point of origin? In the end, I chickened out, though—I thought that might be a little corny, and truth be told, I think she was actually conceived in Brisbane. But I’ll stop there.

Scalloped Hasselback Potatoes “Scalloped” is an attractive word, isn’t it? When I hear it I think of several things: first, there’s scallops, as in the seafood—totally delicious. Then there’s the scalloped shape that can live on the edge of a pair of shorts or on the collar of a woman’s blouse—always pretty and dainty. And of course scalloped potatoes also comes to mind, which carries my imagination to a land of crispy potato skins drenched in a sea of cheese and cream. I can think of no better place to exist, actually.

Let Her Eat Cake: Raspberry Ripple Cake What could be more retro than a marble cake? Remember the ones that would always turn up at the Primary School bring and buy sale? Well this one has grown up. Half raspberry ripple, half marble, this one would saunter through the school gates in a pair of stilettos and a puff-ball skirt and start flirting with the most attractive teacher by the ice cream van. Grab & Go Breakfast Muffins - Ring Finger Tan LineRing Finger Tan Line Up until a few weeks ago, I had quite the morning routine – pretend that I was clean, pick out something to wear that I would inevitably freeze to death in, and purchase a scrumptious breakfast wrap filled with avocado, egg whites, and oozy cheese on my way to work. It was delightful. That is, until it wasn’t. One day, I went to pick up my breakfast wrap, and the wrap-making man asked me to remove my headphones.

Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole is the perfect breakfast for feeding a crowd. Hearty and so delicious! Can you believe Thanksgiving is just over a week away?! Usually my family and I kick the holiday off by watching the Macy’s parade with cold mimosas in one hand, and Mini Cinnamon Rolls in the other before getting into our annual showdown over playing Scrabble, followed by feasting on my Mom’s traditional Thanksgiving dinner later that afternoon. I am not mad at that! The men don’t last too long on cinnamon rolls alone though (and need something to soak up all those mimosas!) Avocado Hummus This avocado hummus is delicious. And I know I say that a lot, but I really rilly like this one. It’s a good one! In other related news, why are avocados so expensive?

Smoky Sweet Potato Burgers with Roasted Garlic Cream and Avocado Before we talk burgers, let me tell you what I’m doing. I’m eating some blueberry yogurt pretzels (which are oh-so awesome… but would be even awesomer if they were really coated in yogurt and not white chocolate disguised as yogurt) and drinking a san pellgrino aranciata that is spiked with um… vodka, malibu and tequila.
