It doesn’t get better than this. Luckily I had the ingredients to make the pico and chipotle mayo. Fresh, healthy and perfect for a late spring dinner al fresco.

This cake is without a doubt the cutest cake I’ve ever made. I’ve taken my sweet time baking in this adorable pan that Miss T gave me at Christmas. Time has been eaten up with my job, traveling and general day-to-day “stuff”. Continue reading

Late this afternoon the sun came out and the day was warm, windy yet warm. I took a stroll out to see if the bees were out and about and they were. Some flying around and many just hanging out on their porches. I decided to remove all the mouse guards to give them more space for coming and going. Continue reading
