It’s been a bit chilly around here in the evenings, which makes me think about fall.
Oh how I love fall. It’s my favorite season – full of apples, sweaters, and all things pumpkin spice.

I’ll be the first to admit that pink wasn’t “my color” for the longest time. In fact, I avoided the color pink, even when planning my own wedding years ago.
But now I can actually tolerate the color pink and even love it sometimes.

Ah, bundt cakes. The ubiquitous cake of the 1950s and 1960s.
They’re so retro that they’re cool again – just ask my mom. She loves to bake bundt cakes for family birthdays, complete with homemade chocolate drizzle.
Imagine having a bundt cake as your wedding cake – now that would be cool. Plus, they’re basically the original “naked” cake, with only a drizzle of frosting. Read More
