Blood Orange Mocktail

Blood Orange Mocktail

I’m so excited to hand out candy on Friday. I was so bummed last year when we got only 1 trick or treater. Now that we live in a big neighborhood I’m expecting a lot of kids. I went out this weekend and bought a ton of candy. If they don’t show then more candy for me I suppose :)

KIt Kat & Caramelized Brownies

It’s amazing what a difference a piece of wood and a different window have made in my pictures!

I pretty much just play with the dials on my camera to get the shot I want. I want to learn more but haven’t had the time since I have so many other hobbies! Now that I’ve improved on two important elements, color and light, my photos instantly look better. My favorite photo I’ve taken so far is being posted next week.

Soft Bake Pumpkin Cookies

Soft Bake Pumpkin Cookies

I was so excited to make the first cake in my new oven. I went ambitious and wanted to try my first surprise inside cake. I don’t do well with fiddly cakes and this was no exception. My cake came out delicious but completely smudged in the center.
