Written on May 23, 2007 at 6:47 pm, by Ivonne

There comes a time in every Cream Puff’s life when you look around at the pastry box you’ve been sitting in and decide that a change is in order.

I owe an enourmous thank you to the talented Mari of the blog My Silly Little Thoughts. Mari baked and decorated these gorgeous cookies, packed them in a lovely tin and then sent them to me. I wish I could say that the cookies were admired by many but that is not the case. They  Continue Reading »

Happy Blog Day to bloggers everywhere! I first heard of Blog Day when I read about it on Paz’s site, The Cooking Adventures of Chef Paz. The idea is to introduce the world to five new bloggers, all of whom should be new (or at least relatively new) to you. And to help make things  Continue Reading »

A Postcard from a Friend

After sending off my postcard as part of the event hosted by Meeta of What’s For Lunch Honey?, I spent an anxious week or so quasi-stalking my mailman. For those of you that are regular readers of this blog, you already know how I feel about my mailman! Finally, last week, I received an elegant  Continue Reading »

Whether you’ve sent a postcard or received one, it’s like sending a little piece of one place off to another. This is why I had to tell you about the lovely Meeta of What’s for Lunch Honey?  Continue Reading »

While I realize this qualifies me for the category of Extreme Nerd, I can’t  Continue Reading »
