2013 Birthday Week Recap!

It’s always such a sad day when birthday week is over. Last year, I celebrated birthday month, and left the good ol’ Napa Valley for some Tahoe time. But I just don’t think that’s going to happen this year. So, rather than be super bummed that I can no longer pull my trump card to […]

It should come as no surprise that I was really, really upset on Easter when the Easter bunny didn’t bring my any of my favorite concoctions to nosh on all day. I decided to get creative that fateful Sunday afternoon– I invented the easiest peanut butter cupcakes. Ever. And then I made the easiest chocolate peanut butter frosting ever.
