Snapshots of Life!

 I just downloaded the photos off my camera after WAY too long of not downloading! And, here are some photos I promised! :) Sorry it's been so long since I did a REAL post! :P Been a lil' busy.

Those three were a few pics I took at sunset around our lake in my neighborhood! I love sunset! (better than sunrise, because you don't have to get up early!!)

Those last 3 photos....CAKE POPS! :D I got a pop decorating kit from my "Aunt" Carrie for my birthday, and then I found another cake pop kit at World Market, and so.....CAKE POPS! :) They were chocolate...dipped in....chocolate! :) The best! I LIKE cake pops!

Christmas baking! 1st pic: Kitchen Aid, iPad with Pandora, ingredients! 2nd Pic: Pandora! 3rd Pic: Recipes! 4th pic:Dough! 5th pic: Dough balls rolled in sugar! 6th pic: Finished cookies! 7th pic: My brother took this one of me....and a spatula on Christmas Eve! The cookies were chocolate peanut butter blossoms!

Random pics of my puppy! He looks like Scrat from Ice Age in the first one! :P

I like taking random pics of the Advent candles on Christmas Eve! We did our Advent devotional by candlelight that night! (We sort of cheated, and my dad used his headlamp to read our book!) ;)

Well, in a few days, I have a fashion post for y'all! What have you been up to in the baking and photography world? Ciao!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Well, yesterday was February 14th, Valentine's Day! To celebrate, my family and I exchanged gifts, ate food, and played our new Wii game! It was quite a fun day. For dinner, my mom and I prepared a fancy dinner! (Chicken Wellington) It was accompanied by sauteed zucchini with mozzarella cheese, and fancy little salads. Then, we read a bit of the Harbinger (a very interesting book!) and continued on to play.............Mario Party 9! :) It is a seriously fun Wii game. We had a LOT of fun! But, for dessert, I made cream cheese filled red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting! They were delicious! :) I'll try and take a picture of them and post it on here.

Speaking of food, I recently started culinary classes! I love them so much! And, we collect the recipes we make every week. So far, my favorite recipes we've made are Thai mango chicken, and flourless chocolate cake! I'm planning on making the Thai chicken very soon, so I will post pictures of it! :)

What have y'all been doing with cooking lately?

Happy Valentine's Day!!
